NeNe Leakes vs. ‘The View’

It may have been more than two weeks since NeNe Leakes appeared on “The View,” but she is continuing to dog the women of the ABC talk show out publicly, as women who “did not have nice manners,” and by the way, their hair styles are dated. Leakes, 47, a former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star now appearing on Broadway in “Chicago,” gave Andy Cohen the lowdown on “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo. Co-host Joy Behar was “throwing a lot of shade,” Leakes told Cohen. Behar was giving the reality star some grief about divorcing her husband, only to remarry him. “But there was someone else on the panel that threw shade as well, as far as looking me up and down.” Leakes confirmed that it was Raven-Symone shooting her the nasty looks. But Leakes threw the last punch: “I know all of them are tired: their hairstyles are tired, their makeup is tired. Whatever.”

Rush drummer Peart says he’s retired

Rock drummers famously have short careers, the demands are so extreme. Rush drummer Neil Peart, 63, told “Drumhead” Magazine he is probably finished playing drums. “Lately (my daughter) Olivia has been introducing me to new friends at school as ‘My dad — He’s a retired drummer,’ ” the Canadian musician said. “And it does not pain me to realize that, like all athletes, there comes a time to... take yourself out of the game.” Peart suffers from chronic tendonitis, and in an interview last month with Sirius XM, his bandmates Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson said the future of the band depends upon Peart’s health and willingness to tour. “Neal has a complicated life, he has a young daughter a new family that he really feels pained to leave, and he has physical issues when we play a monster for three hours,” Lee told the satellite broadcaster. “The body is not cooperating with him. It’s very hard for him.”

Boy ‘Saint’ West for parents Kim and Kanye

Most expectant parents spend several of the many (ahem) months before baby’s birth thinking up a suitable name, but apparently nine months wasn’t enough time for Kim Kardashian, 35 and Kanye West, 38, because they had to take several days after their baby son’s birth Dec. 5 to finally come up with ... Saint West, on Monday. It’s lucky they did, because Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles has a strict rule that babies must be named within five days of birth, or the mother will not be discharged — in Kim’s case, from her $4,000-a-night “birthing suite.” The couple are already parents of Saint’s big sister North West, 2.

Amur leopard under Baywatch babe’s protection

Pamela Anderson has worked to promote the cause of endangered species, and now she is the guardian of her own female Amur leopard — a fitting mama to a wild cat — bestowed by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s chief of staff, Sergei Ivanov. Anderson, 48, a spokeswoman for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) was given a photo of the 4-year-old leopard she’s now responsible for during a visit to Moscow. Anderson had been in Vladivostock, Russia, appearing at the Eastern Economic Forum for the animal rights groups she represents. The former “Baywatch” star said she was “inspired by the attention both the government and Russian businesses are giving to wildlife conservation both here and abroad.”
