NeNe Leakes Addresses Her ‘RHOA’ Cast Mates
It’s been a tough season for Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes.
Not only was her husband Gregg’s cancer diagnosis front and center this season and taking a huge emotional toll, but she was also at odds with her cast mates—a situation that boiled over at the recently-filmed reunion. Now, Leakes is addressing what’s to come after the first trailer for the reunion dropped earlier this week.
RHOA OG NeNe Leakes has made it very clear where she stands with 98% of her cast mates on the hit reality show—and, to quote Leakes, “the door is closed” to most of them. After the upcoming 3-part reunion was filmed a few weeks ago, Leakes promptly unfollowed all of the RHOA cast except Marlo Hampton and Shamari DeVoe. There was also an epic falling out with former bestie Cynthia Bailey, that led Leakes to state that from now on they “are co-workers only.”
The official teaser for the reunion was just released and Leakes took to her new YouTube channel, The Life Of NeNe, to address what happened—and the gang up the other ladies attempted on her.

On her always-tense relationship with Kandi Burruss:
“Kandi did some sorta interview and she had Eva, all strategic, she coulda had anybody. I ain’t did nothing to Kandi, number one, but if you guys follow the show for all the seasons we been doing this, if I say one little thing, Kandi is [makes noises.] The rest of these girls can say something and she gets right on over it, but it’s me that cannot say anything. Remember I told you that, now go on back, rewind the tape, season, after season, after season, after season, if I say one little thing, it’s [makes noises.] Any of these other girls say something, she okay with it. So, her having Eva on, interviewing Eva, was all strategic.”
On Eva Marcille not being smart enough to recognize she’s being manipulated:
“Eva, being as dumb as she is, still over there playing checkers, makes no f**cking sense to me. ‘NeNe this, NeNe that,’ “A,” Marlo brought your information, ok? And don’t tell me I can’t sit at Marlo house and listen because I’m in a contract and I’m being paid to sit and listen. That is my job, ok? Just like it is her job to do her scenes with her cast mates, that is my job. I did not talk about Eva, the person that talked about her, she’s not addressing them. She’s continuously addressing me, you know why? ‘Cause I’m the one you want to address, let’s be very, very clear about that. She’s wants to address me, ‘cause I’m the H.B.I.C. and she needs to secure the bag. And some of her crazy a**, dumb a** friends done told her, ‘well if you go against NeNe, it might help you.’”
On Porsha Williams turning on her when she was the only one on the show supporting her:
“Let’s get you together Ms. P. Let’s not forget, NOBODY was effin’ with you, okay, just last season and the season before, ok? Remember now, when you pulled Kenya off that couch, who was by your side? That would be me, rewind the tape, boo. When you was about to get that mugshot, I called up Joe Hibachi, an attorney friend of mine, right here in Atlanta, Georgia, ok, be clear, who came out and saved you and walked you through that whole mugshot process. Walked you in and walked you out. Let’s not forget who that girl was, that was this girl right here. Don’t forget, in San Francisco, when my bun was coming off my head, ok, don’t forget, when I got up and left, everybody got up and left. Don’t forget sis, when we were over in Barcelona, Spain, you had to fly home early. The girl who sat there and talked to you was only me, sis. It was NeNe, sis. Cynthia had a silver bullet for you that day, remember? All these girls was reading you that day, sis. And I was the one by your side, sis. Let’s not forget, let’s not forget, that you done been in about five fights, sis. Cynthia and you were on the boat and Cynthia had to kick you. Don’t forget, sis. Don’t forget, you jumped on Jamie at our finale a few years ago during the Christmas party, don’t forget, sis. So, now, you wanna get out here and pretend that I put my hands on you. Or you want to insinuate that I put my hands on you. Don’t do that because if I put my hands on you, you would know it.”
Meanwhile, Leakes and Williams have been going back and forth on social media. Williams claims that Leakes fat-shamed her and didn’t congratulate her on the birth of her daughter. However, Leakes provided receipts showing that she did indeed text well wishes.
Leakes had plenty more revelations for the rest of her cast mates where those came from, which surely, she expressed at the reunion. The 3-part Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion airs next month.
