Nene Leakes Slams Porsha Williams For Allegedly Refusing To Work w/ Her: Porsha Is Not A Star!

Looks like there may be some underlying tension between Nene Leakes and Porsha Williams.

The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ alum recently shared a story about her former cast mate, accusing Williams of doing harm to her reputation.

In a video posted to social media Nene Leakes, 56, claims she was told by her manager that she and Porsha Williams, 42, had been asked to appear on the Netflix series The Upshaws together. While the restaurant owner says she was excited for the booking, and the chance to reconnect with her friend who she hadn’t seen in some time, it seems the current Bravo star didn’t reciprocate the feeling.

Leakes says she went through several rehearsals for the TV gig and wondered where Williams was as she still hadn’t seen her. She recalled:

“Porsha never came…We wrapped for the evening. I went back to my hotel, and when I got to my hotel, production called me and asked me if I had any issues with any ‘Housewives’ because they were going to be recasting the other position.”

After clarifying that she doesn’t have any standing issues with any of her former cast mates, including Cynthia Bailey who allegedly was recast in Williams spot, Leakes continued:

“I was later told that Porsha did not show up to work and had said that she did not want to work with me — that we had had issues from the past and she did not want to work with me,”

Taking a moment of silence, Leakes went on to list the many recent times she and Williams hung out without issue. She said the two had been on double dates, went to see Usher in Las Vegas together, and had visited each other’s homes. Leakes went on to express her disappointment that Williams would make such remarks to Netflix, as the situation could have potentially compromised her career. She continued

“I am shocked to hear that Porsha would go to a production company and say that she doesn’t want to work with me because we’ve had a lot of issues in the past…I haven’t been a housewife in over 4 1/2 years. Besides that as Black women, when you call a Black woman angry, difficult…that is a death trap for a Black woman.”

The celeb went on to state that Williams’ allegations are simply a “lie” and that she texted her prior to bringing the issue to the internet. According to Leakes, Williams claimed she was upset with her for not reaching out following her split from husband Simon Guobadia. If you recall, the entertainer filed for divorce from the businessman just last month.

However, Leakes doesn’t seem to be buying her story. She went on to slam Williams for not wanting to “share the spotlight”, stating:

“The bottom line is, Porsha did not want to share the spotlight. That’s it…Professionals can share the spotlight. Porsha is not a star, she is a Bravo-lebrity. Be clear.”

It does not seem that Williams has responded to Leakes‘ claims at this time.
