When Real Housewives Keep It Too Real: NeNe Leakes Goes Toe To Toe With Beverly Hills Housewife Brandi Glanville

May 7, 2013  |  

So now that NeNe Leakes is the highest paid of everyone in the Real Housewives franchise, she’s doing what she does best–throwing shade. The reality TV personality and actress showed up on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen to dish on the different Housewives, including former star Sheree Whitfield (whom she called a b**ch), Lisa Vanderpump (saying she looked a little too thin these days, probably from Dancing With The Stars), and of course, Brandi Glanville, from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who was married to actor Eddie Cibrian before he had an affair and left her for country singer LeAnn Rimes.

Leakes had a few words for Glanville, calling her a trainwreck and claiming that she opens her mouth to say things she should keep to herself way too often:

“Brandi’s just a train wreck. Just a wreck. She’s just off the chain, she’s off the hook with a lot of the things that she has to say, just so talkative…she thinks she’s a gangsta, or something. She thinks she can get in people’s faces and say whatever she wants to say. I like her when she’s not drinking. Brandi and drinks don’t work for me.”

Of course, word of her comments made their way to Glanville and she got in touch with RadarOnline.com to clear the air and to remind Leakes that “she doesn’t even know me.”

“It doesn’t affect me. She doesn’t even know me. If she wants to sit down and hang out with me and my boys and come have dinner, come on over. Get to know me first. Then she can say what she wants about me.”

“At the end of the day, at least she’s talking about me. It doesn’t matter if she’s saying good or bad, she’s talking about me.  And I am gangsta! Why can’t I be gangsta? Because I’m white, skinny and tall?!”

However, Glanville admits that the last time she ran into Leakes, she had too much too drink and might have said a few random things.

“I was totally tipsy…we were all just having fun. So I said I was gangsta. It’s NeNe…I could care less. I don’t know her. I enjoy her on the show and I think she’s really good TV, but as I was watching the show last night I felt like she was drinking her own kool-aid a little too much. It takes a village and we’re all in this together. Everyone on the show brings something different and they’re all important roles.”

But will they all be making $1 million for a season of Real Housewives? Me thinks not. But what do you think about what both women had to say? Was Leakes disrespectful, or is Glanville the one out here clowning?

    When NeNe talks trash, she is just doing her job. Talking trash is why she gets the big bucks. All in all, this doesn’t seem too deep to me. I think Brandi was funny when she said “why can’t I be gangster, because I’m tall, skinny and White?” LOL

    Brandi whoever is a clown! She spills peoples business and gets sad and upset when they show her the consequences of her actions…sounds like an idiot to me. And she wonders why the struggle is real for her, while her ex and his new booty are living happily OUT of the spotlight. #TRUTH #BOOM

    ” I felt like she was drinking her own kool-aid a little too much.” She triiiiiiiied it!

    • KissesMalone

      lol right! Well since NeNe is PAID, she can drink her own kool-aide, Chardonnay, Hennessy whatever she want…Brandi needs to be working so she cant get some Ms NeNe Leakes paychecks lmao

    Ehhh…I love em both to death as far as the franchise goes, I mean they’re def part of my top 5 faves. However, one thing Nene does that Brandi does not do, is throw shade on those who have nothing against her. I just find it hypocritical of Nene calling Brandi out for “talking to much” while at that very moment, that’s exactly what Nene was doing. At the end of the day, it costs you nothing to keep your opinion of others to yourself. Other than that…I think they both got some gangster in ’em! I <3 my RHW ride-or-dies 😛

    I think what NeNe said was fine. I watched the show and you could tell that she was choosing her words carefully in order to not start a big thing. I think Brandi, in turn, defended herself but also chose not to start anything crazy. Kudos to both for conducting themselves very well.

    Both their faces look scary to me! Hoping they are just bad bics.
