After Closetgate and the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, NeNe Leakes wants you to know that yes, she’s unfollowed just about all of her co-stars on social media, with the exception of Marlo Hampton. However, she has a particular gripe with Cynthia Bailey that the 51-year-old reality star shared during an Instagram Live video she posted this week, calling her former BFF “sneaky and underhanded.”
“As far as Cynthia is concerned, you’re going to have to watch the finale to see what it is that she does,” she said. “Now, going a step further, you guys only see a very small part of our lives. Cynthia’s done a lot of stuff in my opinion, on the down low, and [it’s] very sneaky and underhanded. I’m just telling you the truth. I always tell it like it is. You don’t like it, you don’t like it. You can figure it out when you figure it out. She has done a lot of stuff that you all just don’t get to see on the show that’s always underhanded, and I always come out looking like the bad guy. She’s done a lot of f–ked up stuff and that’s just for real. Now what you guys see on social media, that’s what you see. I don’t have no hate in my heart for Cynthia. We are co-workers from this day forward. I don’t have any reason to not speak to her, I’m happy to speak to her. But anything else further than that? No. It’s not going to happen. We’re co-workers. After 11 seasons, I finally realized that these girls are my co-workers.”
“I don’t have to follow them on social media, it’s not that big of a deal to me. I don’t want to see their sh-t,” she added. “Cynthia did something in the finale that just doesn’t work for me and you won’t see everything, but I think you will get the point. And there were some other things that I asked her a lot of stuff and she lied and lied and lied and lied, ’til finally, this finale, really shows the sneaky, underhanded Cynthia Bailey, which is unfortunate. That’s just what it is. She was sneaky, and I’m just telling you what the real deal is.”
As for the finale, which ended up being the straw that broke the camel’s back for her, Leakes said the women came after her. But per the usual, she was able to stand firm.
“This season it was me on the couch that everyone wanted to come for, and I was fine with it,” she said. “You know I can hold my own. Next season it will be somebody else, honey.”
Leakes made clear her stance on the ladies via Twitter too, even claiming that a few, including Cynthia, have been working against her in an effort to bring Kenya Moore back to the show. She and Moore are currently not on the best terms.
Sounds like it’s about to be a very interesting reunion.
