If you have been watching this season of the NeNe Show Real Housewives of Atlanta, you’re aware it’s NeNe Leakes against, well, everybody. Even former bestie Cynthia Bailey did not escape unscathed. Fear, not Cynthia, you don’t stand alone. NeNe has an attitude toward everyone! How generous.

NeNe recently took to social media and shared her thoughts about Cynthia and the demise of their friendship #restinpowerfriendcontract. Finally, Cynthia responds to NeNe’s outburst and for once, she appreciates the shade.

NeNe had some harsh words for The Bailey Agency owner during an Instagram Live post. Calling her “sneaky and underhanded” was the tip of the iceberg. For her part, Cynthia says she will always support NeNe.

Cynthia told Page Six, “I’ve always been a friend to her, and if she’s really my girl like she’s claimed to be my girl then we could get past this,” Cynthia said. “But I noticed she was wearing my eyewear, though, so I need to tag Cynthia Bailey eyewear. I appreciate that. It’s good when we support each other even when we’re mad at each other.”

COME THROUGH, CYNTHIA! During her tenure on RHOA, this has to be the funniest thing she has ever said. I bow to her subtle saltiness. I hope in my cold, snarky heart NeNe did not intend to bestow this advertising moment for Cynthia because the shade (pun intended) was too good.

Moving on from her one moment of brilliance, Cynthia admits NeNe was right when she said the reunion got a little messy. “It just got a little bit tricky for me, but I just own my truth, and said what I had to say,” she said. “But it’s going to be a good reunion. I’ll tell you that,” Cynthia explained.

Speaking about the reunion antics to Us Weekly, Cynthia says the keyword is accountability (where have we heard this before). Cynthia described the issue by saying, “It was accountability and taking that,” the model, 52, stated. Cynthia added that it’s “not untrue” the former Glee actress has difficulty owning up to her mistakes. NeNe not owning up to mistakes? Well, I never…

Still, Cynthia retains a level of maturity when speaking on her former BFF. “I have nothing bad to say about her,” she says. “I hope that we talk about it and work through it … I think we can. I hope we can move past it.”

As for NeNe, she is still blaming everyone else for her paranoid delusions justifying her actions. Whether it’s bashing Cynthia, vilifying husband Gregg Leakes, or other cast members daring to venture into her closet. NeNe discussed the incident with Andy Cohen on the WWHL aftershow. “No, I did not [overreact],’ she said at the time. How [are you going to] overreact in your own home? … You don’t have the right to go through my house, open up my doors, my closet, my pantries, none of that, you would feel [disrespected] … when you come to my house, you are not going to disrespect my home. So, they were not in the right.”

Am I alone in wondering what was in NeNe’s closet she didn’t want filmed? Does she have an extensive collection of Golden Girls swag she’s embarrassed about? Or even worse, Coach bags? THE SHAME!

What we do know is the reunion should be pretty epic. If the usually boring demure Cynthia claims to “look a little crazy”, everyone else must be completely off their rocker. I can’t wait!
