NeNe Leakes Blames Wendy Williams’ Ex-Husband For Sabotaging Her Shot At A Daytime Talk Show

NeNe Leakes seems to be beefing with everyone these days. She hasn’t had the best showing on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s had it out with Kenya Moore, isn’t on speaking terms with Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey. As if that wasn’t enough, things have gone very south with her relationship with Eva Marcille since filming. It looks like the only people she is getting along with are Kandi Burruss and her ever-faithful friend, Marlo Hampton. How Marlo still doesn’t have a peach is beyond me but that is for another time and place.

The only other friend NeNe seemingly has in this whole mess of a season is none other than daytime gossip queen, Wendy Williams. In a recent episode of RHOA, we even saw Wendy counseling NeNe by phone as to how she should handle the women by showing them love and light or some crap like that. Sorry if I sound a bit skeptical but let’s face it, we are talking about NeNe here.

Which is what makes this next story so awkward. NeNe recently made an appearance on The Breakfast Club, where she talked about losing out on her chance at her own daytime talk show. As reported by The Grio, NeNe blames Wendy’s ex-husband Kevin Hunter for thwarting her opportunity.

When asked if she thinks Wendy and Kevin had anything to do with it, NeNe says, “I do think so,” before adding, “I think it was her husband, yea – he was never nice to me.”

At the time of this happening, NeNe was a big star in her own right. She left RHOA for parts on Glee and The New Normal. NeNe surmised, “Well, you know things happened – timing is everything,” she said. “Maybe it wasn’t my time. Sometimes people are intimidated, ya know.”

NeNe continued, “They think you gonna come up and do a little more than they do, I’m not sure, but I know that it was scrapped, that’s true.” NeNe chalked the whole thing up to the nature of show business. She explained, “At that time in my life, it showed me how the industry is, it’s a dirty world.”

When pressed by The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God about Wendy costing her money, NeNe maintains that she believes it was really Wendy’s ex behind all this. “I’m sure he was the one that went to get it stopped,” she said, admitting that her theory is that he thought she posed a threat to their business.“They made the right choice in my eyes. I would have done the same thing.”

At least this is one less fight NeNe has to manage.
