NeNe Leakes Reveals If She Thinks Wendy Williams Previously Blocked Her Talk Show: I Think It Was Her [Ex] Husband [WATCH]
During a sit-down with The Breakfast Club, NeNe Leakes was asked about a talk show that was once the in works via Debmar Mercury, the syndication company that produces Wendy Williams’s daytime talk show. The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne accused Wendy Williams and now her now ex-husband Kevin Hunter of “blocking” NeNe Leakes’s potential show. When asked if she thought that was true, NeNe Leakes answered,
“I did think so.”
She also said she didn’t ask Wendy Williams about it.
“I don’t think we talked about that… I think it was her husband…Well, you know, things happen. I think that timing is everything, and maybe it wasn’t my time.”
“She can make that good again. Sometimes people are intimidated. They think you’re gonna come up and do more than they do. I’m not sure. But I know that it was scrapped, that’s true. I just… never tried to have a conversation with her.”
She also explained why she hasn’t spoken to Williams about it.
“I’m not opposed to talking about Wendy about nothing. I just felt like it was old news. I don’t really care about it anymore. I’ve moved on, she’s moved on. She’s not with Kev anymore. I thought he was toxic for her. I’m sure he was the person to go and get it stopped. It was either [him] or Wendy, and they already had money and Wendy’s show was already on. They made the right choice, in my eyes I would’ve done the same thing. If I know that this show is already successful, I would just stick with the show that’s already successful.”
“It didn’t hurt my feelings. At that time in my life, I think it really taught me how the industry is. It’s a dirty world.”
