NeNe Leakes Claps Back At Fans Who Say She Was Shading Kylie Jenner’s “Self-Made Billionaire” Forbes’ Cover
Earlier this week, when the youngest of the Kar-Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner, was featured on the cover of Forbes magazine to herald her almost billion-dollar cosmetics empire, there were mixed feelings. Aything that surrounds this family is generally met with shade and side-eyes.
The bulk of the criticism seemed to be not over the profile of her and Kylie Cosmetics, but the idea that she is “self-made.” Many argued that, since Kylie grew up wealthy from the start, the term self-made doesn’t really apply because she had a pretty cushy financial head-start.
As Page Six reports, the always outspoken NeNe Leakes left a comment on a former RHOA producer’s Instagram page after he said, “Being on a reality show isn’t so bad, eh? Use your platform correctly, folks!” She responded to that statement with, “Well some people get opportunities that others will never get! Just saying! This game ain’t fair.”
As expected, many fans immediately assumed that NeNe was throwing major shade and jealousy Kylie’s way. Once her comments made the rounds on social media, she was quick to jump in to defend herself. NeNe stated that what she said wasn’t shade or jealousy, just the truth:
NeNe has a lot on her own plate these days, as she is currently helping her husband Gregg fight his battle with cancer and she just opened a new Swagg Boutique in Miami, all while filming the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, which is slated to premiere in late fall.
What do you think about her comments regarding Kylie Jenner? Were they shady or did she speak the truth?
