It took a while for Real Housewives of Atlanta to catch fire this season. At NeNe Leakes’ ‘Bye Wig’ party, the hostess ordered her guests to stay out of her closet. Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss ignored this direction and went into the closet. NeNe went into beast mode and ripped a camera man’s shirt when he tried to follow. What is in there? And did NeNe pull off mother-to-be Porsha’s belt? I need answers!
This has been a tough season for NeNe. NeNe and her husband, Gregg Leakes, have been dealing with marital struggles during his cancer battle. She also unfollowed many of her fellow Atlanta Housewives on social media. Was this all because of the closet fiasco?
According to Atlanta Black Star, NeNe made her feelings about former bestie Cynthia Bailey clear on Instagram Live. “You [gon’] have to watch the finale to see what it is that she does. Cynthia’s done a lot of stuff, in my opinion, on the down low [that] is very sneaky and underhanded,” NeNe said. So, why did she unfollow her other co-stars?
In an article on TooFab, Kandi shared what has made NeNe so angry. “From what I can tell, she’s upset because we had invited Kenya [Moore] to Cynthia [Bailey]’s party, and Cynthia didn’t give her a heads up. She felt like that was an attack against her, which it wasn’t,” Kandi said. “Overall, it’s just like, Kenya’s our friend. I feel like Kenya should’ve been at the party. Not only that, I definitely felt like our fans should see Kenya — happy, pregnant.” Kenya twirled off RHOA in 2018, so fans never got to see her pregnancy journey.
“And that has nothing to do with NeNe, so I don’t understand why she took it so personally,” Kandi revealed. “Cynthia didn’t tell her that Kenya was coming, but at the end of the day, I’m looking at how crazy NeNe’s acting about this, and I’m like, ‘Okay, well, it’s clear why Cynthia didn’t tell you because you flip out and get all offended and mad for no damn reason.”
Kandi also said that NeNe’s friendship with former RHOA Housewife Phaedra Parks doesn’t factor into Kandi’s current relationship with NeNe. Phaedra was the source of that vile rumor that Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker wanted to drug and sexually assault Porsha. “But it doesn’t matter to me if that’s who she chooses to be friends with,” she added. “It’s not like NeNe and I were super tight.”
It looks like we will have to wait for the reunion to see some serious drama. “People definitely got a lot off their chests! But that’s what the reunion is for,” Kandi explained to TooFab. “The girls all stuck to their guns and spoke their minds, and it just so happened that a lot of people seemed to have an issue with the same person.” Kandi reported that the person on the receiving end of those comments was NeNe. “Now, I wasn’t expecting that to happen, but it did!” I can’t wait to see the reunion!
Kandi also shared some exciting news. She and Todd are pursuing surrogacy with the surrogate that was shown on an episode of RHOA this season. “We have moved forward with our decision to expand our family,” Kandi said. Best wishes to Kandi and Todd as they embark on this new journey together.
