There has been a lot of back and forth between estranged friends Wendy Williams and NeNe Leakes in recent months, but if you ask Wendy, she’ll tell you that she’s “not fighting with NeNe.” During a recent taping of her daytime talk show, Wendy revisited some comments that she made about her lack of faith in the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star’s ability to win “Dancing with the Stars.”

“A lot of the web sites are saying, that ‘Wendy Williams Slams NeNe Leakes Telling Her She Won’t Win Dancing With the Stars,’ she explained. “Well, if you’re a regular Wendy watcher, I told them all they won’t win. But I get it, people enjoy when black girls fight with one another. But I’m not fighting with NeNe.”

“That’s why I’m glad I have this show, to be able to clear up when information is out there about me,” she continued.

The outspoken TV host added that her comments were nothing personal against NeNe and that she always makes attempts to predict who will win the dance competition.

“I always predict who is gonna win ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ Now, I’m not saying I’m right. All I’m saying is no, NeNe’s not gonna win, but neither is Billy Dee Williams.”

Wendy also expressed that she was impressed by NeNe’s first performance.

“She danced fabulously,” the DWTS alum exclaimed. “Yup, when she pooched her lips, I knew that she was really having fun with it, instead of dancing with the struggle face, which I danced with.”

Do you think Wendy’s initial comment was misconstrued?

    Blogs, like this one, is quick to grab headlines when one Black woman says something negative about another. I watch Wendy show faithfully. Just like every new season of DWTS, she predicts who will win and who won’t. All she said was that NeNe was not going to win yet the blogs picked up on that like she was bashing NeNe. Heck Wendy said Billy Dee, Cameron Burke, etc wasn’t going to win not just NeNe. Yet because those are two Black women, the blogs were quick to jump on that and say Wendy attacked NeNe. I miss the old madame noire. They didn’t use to write articles just for hits

    I think her comment may have been taken out of context. If u consider the fact that Wendy is a follower of the show and she was also on the show herself she kind of knows the politics of the show. So she may be right in her prediction. They may just be using Nene for raitings. U never kno. But Nene did kill it and I hope she wins!
