Nene Leakes may not be on RHOA this season, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been watching. On Sunday night Nene appeared on WWHL with Andy Cohen, and weighed in on the season 9 drama; she had a lot to say!
A little over a year ago the only RHOA ladies Nene was close with were Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams, however once she showed up in Jamaica things changed. She was back tight with Cynthia, and her friends (Porsha and Phaedra) felt betrayed; they thought she should have told them she was coming. “I was surprised at their reaction to me. They didn’t even talk to me hardly in Jamaica,” Nene told Andy. Adding that she, “caught them whispering” behind her back. She also said, “I’m cool with Phaedra. I feel like I must be the problem for them. When I show up, I’m a problem.”
Following that, Nene got close with Kenya, and on Sunday night she revealed she and Kandi were also in a good place; my how things have changed! Last week Andy asked Porsha if she and Nene were still friends, and she blamed Nene for not returning her calls, a claim that Nene furiously denied this week. “That’s a lie. Let me tell you something, I’m the girl that’ll call you right back. So this girl ain’t call me. How she gonna call me when she bashing me with her radio crew all the time,” Nene slammed.
Onto her new bestie Kandi, Nene was talking her up, big time! “Me and Kandi made a bet that we were gonna try to be cooler with each other, you know, just try to get to know each other a little bit more. We both have kept to that. She’ll text me. Phaedra hasn’t texted me. Porsha hasn’t said a word,” Nene explained.
No surprise here, but Nene says she is “okay” with Kandi and Phaedra’s falling out. “I’m OK with the friendship split. It’s just the way that it’s splitting is the problem. Well, I think that Kandi had been holding back for so long and keeping secrets,. For me, — yes, I know them in a different way than the viewers do — for me, I got your back, and I’m loyal to you until you’re not loyal to me. And you’re not gonna just keep shooting at me and think I’m not gonna shoot at you. So I’m OK if Kandi wants to blow her head off every now and then. I’m fine with that,” she dished.
Porsha and Kandi were clearly watching WWHL, and had very different responses to what Nene had to say! Porsha kept it short and sweet, but she wasn’t too happy at how much her name was brought up.
Kandi was grateful for Nene’s support, and added a clip of Nene on the show with the following response.
“@Kandi: “I had to post this because @neneleakes just explained perfectly what I’ve felt. For those who wonder why I’ve reacted the way I have reacted this season. Im extremely loyal but for the last couple years I’ve kept my mouth closed while I was getting dragged on & off camera. So this year I was just done. At the end of the day we should respect girl codes but that means when the friendship is done you don’t say anything about each other. Not just I don’t say anything about you while you blast the hell out of me all the time… Isn’t it funny to hear Nene & I on the same page. #JesusFixedIt.”
I can barely keep up; these RHOA ladies are always changing sides. This season has been great so far, and things are about to get even better!
