Rumors are spreading that NeNe Leakes is having trouble keeping chefs/cooks at The Linnethia Lounge.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member put out a call for chefs/cooks to basically work for free at The Linnethia Lounge in Duluth, Ga for a few weeks.

In a post on Instagram, she wrote:

"The Linnethia Lounge is looking for the best cooks/chefs in the Atlanta area to take over our kitchen for 1 week. Every week there will be a different cook/chef for next few weeks! Our lounge guest will be the judge! The WINNER will have the kitchen permanently in January to start their very own restaurant in The Linnethia Lounge."

Trolls on IG suggested NeNe wants cooks to work for free until after the holidays.

NeNe has denied reports that she is low on cash after the death of her husband, Gregg Leakes, in September.

The 53-year-old mom-of-two listed the couple's marital home for $4 million and slashed the list price twice to $3.4 million after receiving no offers.

Keke Palmer posted a photo of wilted "fresh salad" that was included as part of her 3-course meal at the $30,000-$50,000 per ticket Met Gala, held on Monday night in NYC.

The 28-year-old actress wore a shimmering black open back floor length gown by Sergio Hudson to the Met Gala, themed "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."

Half of the well-heeled guests left after ascending the steps and having their photos taken by paparazzi to prove they attended the event.

However, Keke was one of the celebs who stayed to dine on the fully meatless 3-course meal.

She posted a photo on her Instagram Story showing her plate of wilted salad that looked like it had been left outside in the sun.

Keke captioned the image: "This is why they don't show y'all the food. I'm just playing."

According to, this year's menu was completely vegan, with 10 of New York's top chefs hired to feed the hungry A-listers.

Dinner consisted of a "fresh salad" as a starter, followed by collard greens served on coconut buttermilk cornbread, black rice porcini arancini with pumpkin Calabrian chili sauce, and watermelon tart with smoked yuzu soy on a single panipuri cracker.

The main course consisted of creamed barley with corn, pickled turnips, and roasted maitake mushrooms.

For desert, the A-listers savored a dish of apple mousse and apple confit with a calvados eau-de-vie glaze.

They washed it all down with champagne and fine wines.

If you are a home buyer who prefers homes with gas stoves and gas water heaters, you may be out of luck.

Cities are pushing builders to exclude gas hookups in new homes and developments to protect the environment.

But chefs say gas stoves heat up quicker than electric stoves and they have greater control over the temperatures with gas flame. Additionally, gas heaters heat homes more efficiently and evenly than electric heat.

Gas stoves are typically cheaper than electric stoves, and electric stoves and water heaters are useless when the power goes out.

Several cities, including Berkeley, Calif., Denver and New York City are banning natural-gas connections to new homes and businesses.

When Berkeley, Calif., became the first U.S. city to ban natural-gas two years ago, the California Restaurant Association sued.

A federal judge dismissed the challenge earlier this month; the restaurant group said it plans to appeal the decision.

Question: Do you prefer gas stoves or electric stoves?
