After years of back and forth with former Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore, Leakes says she’s ready to bury the hatchet…again.
Over the weekend there was some signal of reconciliation, at least between Leakes and Parks, after the two were spotted partying together at Andy Cohen’s wild baby shower. Over 50 housewives were gathered to celebrate the Bravo exec’s impending bundle of joy.
On Sunday Leakes sat down with Cohen and guest Michael Rapport on Watch What Happens where a caller phoned in to ask whether or not bad blood still existed between her and Moore.
“I’m not sure where Kenya and I went left. Really, all I can tell you is it was all a strategic move on her behalf because if you link your name with mine you get a little press. That is the issue there. The door is open for Kenya and Phaedra in my world,” she said.
“The door is open for Kenya and Phaedra in my world,” Leakes said. An interesting departure from the drama that’s played out between the three women over the last 10 years.
Parks and Moore have gone toe to toe with Leakes on numerous occasions. Parks and Leakes were in conflict for years after Parks accused Leakes of acting like she didn’t know her even though they grew up in the same hometown.
Most recently Leakes and Moore got into a heated Twitter fight over Leakes being uninvited to Moore’s baby shower. They threw jabs back and forth until everything erupted into dust.
In 2017, Nene ruffled more feathers when a caller asked who should be booted off the show.
“If I had it my way, I would get rid of two girls,” Leakes said. “In my opinion, yes — the cast should be changed up a bit. If I had it my way, I would get rid of two girls and bring in two new ones for excitement. You know, after a while with some of the girls, they just don’t have anything going on exciting enough to be a main cast member.”
Many took the comment to be aimed at Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks who were in the midst of an explosive “sex dungeon” storyline where the two repeated a rumor accusing Kandi Buruss and her husband Todd Tucker of attempting to drug Williams.
Either way, we’d love to see all the women back next season. Maybe Leakes can put a well placed bug in Cohen’s ear to make it happen.
