The door between NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams remains closed, people! At least for now, and possibly for a good chunk of the season to come on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. NeNe claims it’s because she is held to a higher standard than Porsha – and the rest of the cast, in fact – when it comes to owning up to her behavior.
Laying blame entirely at Porsha’s feet for their beef, NeNe justifies her actions at Marlo Hampton’s tea party, at which absolutely nothing was resolved between the warring women. NeNe defends, “I definitely don’t think we got anywhere at Marlo’s tea party! I’m still very puzzled as to why I even had to sit down and talk with Porsha about something she totally created.”
Citing multiple offenses committed by Porsha against her, NeNe explains the reasons why she is the injured party. “[Porsha’s] the one that chose not to talk to me in Jamaica for no reason. Well, mostly because she was with Phaedra [Parks]. She’s the one that got upset when I gave her great advice during the Season 8 reunion. I used a very normal tone and I genuinely wanted to see her win. She’s the one that chose not to return any of my text messages! She’s the one that got upset with me when a caller asked me a question on WWHL and I gave my opinion as a viewer!”
NeNe continues, “She’s the one that sits on Dish Nation and chooses to speak negatively about me, but when I fire back, that’s when all hell breaks loose. I’m not surprised though, because there’s always been a different set of rules for NeNe amongst these girls.”
Despite having literally said she thinks Porsha should be fired, NeNe claims she was just innocently offering her opinion “as a viewer,” therefore shouldn’t be attacked. This is over-simplification of the issue at its finest. Conversely, Porsha isn’t doing herself any favors by giving this WWHL comment so much life for So. Damn. Long. Bottom line: Both of them need to drop it and move on. We need fresh drama, ladies!
In a rare bonding experience among the cast, Kenya Moore’s PSA against domestic abuse brought everyone together, including NeNe and Porsha. NeNe reflects in her blog, “Hearing Cynthia [Bailey’s] mom’s story was very touching, and it made my heart heavy. People carry things like this with them forever. I’ve been speaking for Women of Domestic Abuse for years. I’m surprised that after all this time no one ever said anything about being in an abusive relationship but me! I’m just glad that more women are speaking up and seeking help. Abuse is never OK!”
The silver lining of Kenya’s campaign was the momentary truce between the ladies. NeNe admits, “Working with all the ladies on the PSA was great! I wish we could come together more often and do things like this.” Oh, girl – me too.
