Now ya’ll know that Wendy Williams is not one to hold back on her opinions or her jokes, but she’s catching some heat from people, including fans of NeNe Leakes, for saying earlier in the week that Leakes was faking an illness for attention.
At the beginning of the week, we told you that the RHOA star was hospitalized and posted a picture of herself in the hospital, IVs in her arm and everything. But before Leakes revealed why she was hospitalized, Wendy Williams came up with her own theory about everything, and folks didn’t like it:
“NeNe stop yanking our chain. NeNe is apparently in the hospital everybody. But she found time to Tweet which makes me think it’s nothing serious. Nothing serious at all, like a hangnail or something. But she tweeted this photo with the caption ‘my arm hurts from all these IVs. #Blessed to be alive.’ Aren’t we all NeNe? NeNe didn’t say why she was in the hospital. Maybe it’s an allergic reaction to not getting enough attention. Just saying, just saying. NeNe I know you’re not sick so I feel very comfortable making jokes. But whatever you’re in the hospital for, get out soon and stop playing with us by Tweeting. You know we love you!”
Of course, right after Williams cracked her jokes, Leakes revealed on her website that she was in the hospital for blood clots in her lungs.
Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out. After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung. I’m told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job. I’m thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don’t recognize the symptoms of blood clots and don’t go to the doctor and that’s when the big problems start happening.
After hearing about Wendy’s jokes, many of NeNe’s fans came Williams for not having tact:
@WendyWilliams You want to get your facts straight before you shoot your big mouth off, Nene has blood clots in her lungs. Shame on u #snipe
@RHOGossip @WendyWilliams @NeNeLeakes Wendy owes Nene public apology after she stated on her show “Nene we know your not sick”
@WendyWilliams see Wendy Nene was really sick, now don’t you feel bad for making fun of her???
This isn’t the first time the talk show host has spoken out about Leakes. The two had a falling out earlier in the year after Williams tried to insinuate that Leakes’ relationship with Gregg wasn’t anything more than friendship. Wendy isn’t the apologetic type, but I’m sure she knows she was dead wrong about this one. Go ahead and call NeNe and set things straight Wendy! Do you think she will?
