Last night on WWHL, NeNe Leakes made it abundantly clear that she and Cynthia Bailey are no longer friends. We may know the reason why the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars are no longer BFFs and it can be summed up in two words: Pam Pinnock!
Back in 2012, Straight from the A reported on Pam's possible relationship with Gregg Leakes (complete with pics of her hanging with Bryson and his baby girl, NeNe's grandbaby). So, naturally it's a sore spot with NeNe. So imagine her fury when Cynthia hired Pam (a celeb publicist) to help her out.
A source close to the situation revealed to us, "Cynthia Bailey broke the number one rule in her and Nene Leakes FRIEND contract. DO NOT hang out with Greg's jumpoff."
Our source reports that NeNe is not thrilled over Cynthia hiring Pam and then befriending her in the process, "Cynthia and celebrity publicist Pam Pinnock have gotten really close and been hanging out while the publicist has been helping Cynthia revamp her model agency's public image. Cynthia decided to hire a well known publicist to clean up the agency brand or maybe to piss Nene off. Nene found out they been hanging out and EVERYBODY knows Nene don't like sharing her friends. But especially the ones who have shared a bed with her man Greg."
The source continued, "It's really strange how she turned on Cynthia after all these years but when it comes to Gregg and his wandering eyes, Nene don't play that. Cynthia broke the contract rule so now Nene wants Cynthia's RHOA contract ripped up."
We do know that NeNe is not cool with her friends associating with her RHOA co-stars and it's a little odd. BUT we can certainly understand her feeling some kind of way about this situation. It's not cool of Cynthia and I don't think she'd be thrilled if NeNe ran out and starting hanging with any of Peter's exes!
We reached out to Pam to see if she's still (or ever was) repping Cynthia and will let you know when we hear something back.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK THIS COULD BE THE REASON FOR ALL THE SUDDEN ANIMOSITY?
