Why are Nene Leakes and Wendy Williams feuding?

Williams returned to her speak present after a quick hiatus on account of coronavirus pandemic. The TV host talked about RHOA and recalled an incident with Leakes that occurred final Friday, April 3.

“On Friday evening I was in the house minding my own business … my phone rings shortly after 10 o’clock and it’s Nene… I said, ‘Hi Nene, why are you screaming? Why are we on speakerphone, your house is big enough? What’re you doing?’” Williams shared. “She [NeNe] said, ‘Girl.’ I said, ‘Yes Nene, why are you talking so loud?’ She said, ‘I’m here with all my people…’”

The former radio character was not joyful that Leakes referred to as her randomly and put her on the spot. She made it clear that she doesn’t prefer to FaceTime.

“You know I don’t have face or time for FaceTime, period,” Williams added. “If I don’t do it for my own parents of the show, why would I be doing it for someone over there. I like NeNe, but she’s still an over-there person to me!”

Leakes had been broadcasting reside on Instagram when she referred to as Williams however the latter was reluctant to be a part of her video.

“Honestly, here’s where the ambush comes in. She said, ‘Wendy, look’ — she was in hair and makeup and wardrobe with all her people — she said, ‘We filming and I want you to be on the speaker.’ I said, ‘NeNe, I did that for you one time.’ Remember my appearance? One time! I made it very clear, I am not a Housewife. Sorry, my career is a bit … different … than being a Housewife. I don’t need that kind of attention.”

Nene Leakes claps again

“Public disrespect and private apologies don’t mix,” Leakes posted.

“If you’re going to ask me anything about Wendy, please refrain from doing so,” she informed followers. “I will not answer any questions concerning Wendy. I will not answer any questions once again about Wendy, and for the third time, I will not answer any questions about Wendy. I’m not that kind of friend, I’ve never been that kind of friend despite what you might think.”

“Any questions I may have I will send them to her, I wish she could’ve done the same,” she added. “I’m always loyal, I will always be loyal. I’m not a snitch. I’ll never be one. I am not going to hash out a friendship over social media.”
