Wendy Williams Is Catching Heat For Saying NeNe Leakes Faked Being Sick For Attention

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?

Check out Wendy’s thoughts in the last two minutes of the video.

    Wendy Williams is negative because this get’s Ratings! Wendy needs to take a good look in the mirror? She is an attention Wh@#e! When people come for Wendy she always wants to get on her show acts as if she is innocent of any negativity and being attack (really). People should boycott her show because their is noting positive about her show. It is a D-List show, all about marketing. How U Doin!!!

  • slimpickens2916

    Williams is a joke! She is a caricature at best! I can not watch her show because it is a forum for bullying!

  • DoinMe

    Listening to tea on the radio is one thing, but to see a grown 50 year-old woman sitting on TV everyday gossiping about other people is not cute.

  • Leah Robinson

    ANONNYING! All black women do is talk about each other all the time, I’m sick of it! We need to learn how to uplift


    NeNe a self absorbed walking set back in black society that is the very thing tearing away at our culture by influencing our young women. teaching them how to be money grubbing conceited, and above all c u n t s

  • smoinpour

    that’s not cool for wendy to say

  • Felicia Wright

    She has the the nerve to talk about anyone while running around with those abnormal artificial breast…insecure much

  • CC

    She didn’t say that she faked being in the hospital, she said it must not be all that serious if she can still tweet. So let’s say a random person you know is hospitalized and they tweet or post a photo on Facebook or something. To some that’s viewed as being dramatic and/or wanting attention, which is what her point was. Not always the case but yes there are some people that are guilty of the above mentioned. There are those of us who hope she will be released, and there are others that simply don’t care. She’s no different than anyone else that wouldn’t give two ishts about me if I tweeted under the same circumstance, so stop all the bashing…….Just a thought…..

      I totally agree. That’s actually a pet peeve of mine. Your in labor stop posting your contraction times. Half of the facebook “friends” that they have they don’t personally know.

  • mskane808

    somebody gonna run up wendy like method man did back in the day, how i do see her point. ne ne an this new found celebrity status is too over the top, so she just maybe seeking attention.

    • Musicaaok

      Nene is over the top but blood clot in your lungs isn’t seeking attention. I mean what did she do, place the clots there herself?

      • mskane808

        u seem very emotional about the whole thing. lol

  • Clarke

    Oh Wendy…

    I do think she has calmed down and settled herself ever since (my beloved) ‘Whitney Houston’, ruthlessly, “DRAGGED” both her and her polyester wigs for almighty life, during that infamous interview, a decade ago but, as of late, she seems to have returned to her ‘Traditional’ ways.

    My fingers are crossed.

  • BabyBlue

    The older Wendy gets the more insensitive she becomes. I have a love hate for Wendy Williams.

    • mskane808

      me to

      • BabyBlue

        I understand the “say it like you mean it” motto that she lives by but when it comes to someone’s health have a heart.

        • Musicaaok

          Exactly! I know Wendy’s mouth doesn’t have a filter but I was surprised by her comments.
