A mature person can admit when he or she is wrong and that is exactly what NeNe Leakes is doing. In her personal blog post the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star explains why it was essential that she apologize to cast mate, Claudia Jordan.
In short, she feels that calling Claudia a whore and downplaying her accolades may not have been the proper move:
Apologies are needed and there are times when we act out and make mistakes, and you just have to say, “I’m sorry!” Saying you’re sorry doesn’t mean you’re weak, and it doesn’t mean you’re a bad person; but for me, it certainly meant I had a moment where I felt my behavior was inappropriate and I wanted to take full responsibility for that. With that said, I never said I lied about anything,
I just felt some things didn’t have to be said in that setting. This I can tell you about me: I don’t apologize honestly if I don’t feel it’s necessary. Many times people say they’re sorry just to get out of things, but that’s not me. If I said it, I meant it, and I’ll leave it like that. Honestly if I apologize, it means something and it’s coming from a sincere place.
