NeNe Leakes, star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is spilling all of the reunion tea. NeNe recently opened up about the RHOA and the reunion to E! News and she said she dislikes the reunions. This season NeNe had a fallout with co-star and friend, Cynthia Bailey. Cynthia has said that her friendship with NeNe is “unhealthy.” NeNe doesn’t agree with that. This reunion was so dramatic that it led to NeNe unfollowing the majority of the cast after the taping. (With the exception of newbie Shamari DeVoe and friend of the cast Marlo Hampton.) NeNe explained that she doesn’t like the reunions. Plus, NeNe said that she’s the person who actually “created” the reunions!
NeNe said, “One thing I can say very openly is that I do not like the reunion. It’s not a secret to any of my cast members, it’s not a secret to my producers, it’s not a secret to Andy Cohen. They all know how I feel about it. I was actually the person who basically created the reunion. I went to Andy Cohen one day and said, ‘let’s have a reunion,’ and I hate I ever said that, because we’ve been having a reunion ever since!”
NeNe said that she prepares for the reunions because she knows how it’s going to go down. However; she said she doesn’t have a strategy. NeNe said, “I don’t like it, so when I walk out, I know that the gun is pointed at me. So it’s not like anything that I’m excited to do.”
NeNe is not getting along with most of the cast right now. Cynthia had an event and she claimed she didn’t know that RHOA alum, Kenya Moore, was going to be there. There was a hot mic moment that made it look like Cynthia actually did know. However; Cynthia has recently denied lying about it. NeNe stated, “The best way I can explain it is over the years, they’ve always played me as the villain, and I’ve always been the villain. Somebody’s got to be the villain, right? They’ve always played Cynthia as this nice person, so it’s easy for them to point their fingers at me. Your eyes ain’t fooling you. Cynthia did exactly what she did, and what’s crazy is she cut me, and she’s really out here acting like she’s the one that’s bleeding. It’s crazy to me. And it’s easy for everybody to be like, it’s NeNe, NeNe did it. Trust everything I’m telling you. She is lying through her teeth. That girl is lying to you, I’m telling you, she is lying with no issue at all, she is lying. She’s out here doing damage control, she’s running around here saying NeNe is a toxic friend, an unhealthy friend to be in a relationship with. A toxic friend? I’m blown away.”
NeNe now thinks of her fellow castmates as co-workers, not friends. In fact, she said that she doesn’t want to be friends with any of these “boring” girls. Watch the clip below to see everything that NeNe had to say:
All I can say is woah! I’m looking forward to seeing everything play out at the reunion. The RHOA ladies are always entertaining. This seems like an intense reunion! Stay tuned!
