Every great Real Housewives franchise has a massive friend breakup that rocks the show. Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards. Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant. Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson. The list goes on. And in the Real Housewives of Atlanta universe, the rocky relationship between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey has been central to the story.
NeNe has been going through it recently. Her longtime husband Gregg Leakes passed away from cancer and she’s been devastated. She’s been receiving plenty of love from RHOA co-stars past and present. Including 50 Cynt, and now it looks like they might be renegotiating the terms of their friendship contract.
According to Radar Online, NeNe posted a series of photos of her hanging out with Cynthia and Marlo Hampton at her lounge. Oddly, Lamar Odom was there as well, but we’re focusing on the ladies here. The trio looks like three peas in a pod, so it looks like NeNe’s main chick and side chick are getting along just fine. NeNe posted in the caption that she’s thankful for everyone “coming out showing love & dropping off gifts”. Additionally, she asked everyone to work with her as she adjusts to her “new normal” and experiences the highs and lows of grief. Our thoughts are with NeNe and her family while they go through this.

Honestly, it’s great to see that when someone is going through such a heartbreaking life event that their friends can put their differences (in this case, Kenya Moore) aside and support one another. Because while 50 Cynt and NeNe have spent years feuding, they truly had a beautiful friendship at its core. And Marlo’s a ride or die, so she’s always going to show up for her buddy NeNe.
The rumors have been swirling that Cynthia could also be on her way out of RHOA. But it looks like her exit will be a little more gracious than NeNe logging off from the Zoom reunion, never to be seen again. Maybe that’s why the two are moving on — without the drama of reality TV, they can love and support one another outside of the mess. It’s gotta be easier when you don’t have Twirl stirring the pot in the middle.
