NeNe Leakes Calls Ex Friend Cynthia Bailey ‘Sneaky & Underhanded’, Denies Putting Her Hands On Pregnant Porsha Williams [VIDEO]
NeNe Leakes is over her The Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars, especially her BFF Cynthia Bailey and her little sister Porsha Williams.
theJasmineBRAND broke the story that Leakes fell out with Bailey after an upcoming episode of the popular Bravo series reportedly showed Bailey trying to scheme against Leakes, not knowing the cameras were rolling. She also unfollowed all of her cast members except Shamari DeVoe and Marlo Hampton on Instagram.
Now, Leakes has even more to say about her former friends, and the rest of her co-stars.
She first denied speculation that she attacked a very pregnant Williams for going into her closet after she told Williams and Burruss not to enter the space.
“Porsha is insinuating that she was touched in the closet. There were four people in the closet: me, Porsha, Cynthia, Marlo and Kandi. Porsha assumed I touched her and her belt came off. I’d like to know how is that possible, which I told her at the reunion. I wasn’t even behind you. So how can I touch your belt? What if I had a big dog in my closet and he jumps out and attacks everybody? But it’s my fault, right? But I told you not to go in there.”
She then explained her fallout with Bailey.
“As far as Cynthia is concerned, you’re gonna have to watch the finale to see what it is that she does. Going a step further, you guys only see a very small part of our lives. Cynthia has done a lot of stuff in my opinion on the down low, and very sneaky and underhanded. I’m just telling you the truth… She has done a lot of stuff that you all just don’t get to see on the show that’s underhanded and I always come out looking like the bad guy. I don’t have no hate in my heart for Cynthia. We are coworkers from this day forward. I don’t have any reason to not speak to her. I’m happy to speak to her. But anything else further than that, it’s not gonna happen. We are coworkers. After 11 seasons, I finally realized that these girls are my coworkers.”
She also said the rest of her cast mates were “trying to secure the bag” when they came for at the reunion.
“Because they are boring. So they had no other choice but to come for me. They tried to come how about that. But they might as well go right on back. It’s so crazy to me because these girls come on the show playing checkers. I’m already over here playing chess. So it’s so ridiculous to me for all of them to try and like ‘let’s all make up together and act like we’re nice and stuff,’ when they really are. I don’t mind being the villain because my check gets bigger when I’m the villain.”
She added the only way they thought they could get the executives’ attention was to blast her.
She also confirmed that she unfollowed her cast members.
“It’s been a whole lot of lies put in the press, and I see people are making negative comments. It’s unfortunate because people don’t even know the half of what goes on this show. They only get five minutes of it. I will have to say keep watching the show… “I don’t have to follow them on social media. It’s not that big of a deal to me. I don’t wanna see their s***. Cynthia did something in the finale that just doesn’t work for me. You won’t see everything, but I think you’ll get the point. There were some other things… I asked her a lot of stuff and she lied and lied and lied and lied and lied. This finale really shows the sneaky, underhanded Cynthia Bailey, which is unfortunate. That’s just what it is.”
She also took time to address Andy Cohen’s claim that she also unfollowed him on Instagram. See that clip below.
Leakes said that wasn’t true because she never even followed Cohen on Instagram to begin with. They only followed each other on Twitter. She said she text him immediately after he watched the clip, and Cohen denied saying it.
