NeNe Leakes has a message for all her critics: “Leave me alone.”
The former Bravoleb broke down in an emotional video on her Instagram Stories as she begged her critics to just leave her alone as she mourns the death of her husband Gregg Leakes.
The drama all started during an appearance on the Atlanta-based radio station V-103 when NeNe shaded her former Real Housewives of Atlanta c0stars for the support or lack thereof, they showed her following Gregg’s passing.
NeNe called out Cynthia Bailey for missing Gregg’s memorial service. She also questioned why all of her “wealthy” former costars could only pitch in to send her one bouquet of flowers.
“[Cynthia] didn’t even come to the repast,” she said. “She did come like a week later after everything was done. She came by my lounge. It’s really hard to explain ‘Housewives.’ It’s almost like a dysfunctional family. But they all reached out and sent flowers or something.”
“Actually I was surprised because the first set of flowers I got was a bouquet from like all the Housewives like they went in together,” she added. “I’m like, ‘Why do y’all need to go in together and buy some damn flowers? If all y’all work … you can spend your own $200. That’s the way I’ve always been.”
After receiving backlash for her comments, NeNe took to her Instagram Stories to shut her critics down.
The former RHOA star ended a long rant with a tearful request: “Please leave me alone. I’m asking that. All of you guys please leave me alone. I wish my husband had not died. I would not be dealing with any of this. Please, leave me the f–k alone.”
Season 14 of RHOA will likely premiere on Bravo in early Spring 2022.
