When Real Housewives Keep It Too Real: NeNe Leakes Goes Toe To Toe With Beverly Hills Housewife Brandi Glanville
So now that NeNe Leakes is the highest paid of everyone in the Real Housewives franchise, she’s doing what she does best–throwing shade. The reality TV personality and actress showed up on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen to dish on the different Housewives, including former star Sheree Whitfield (whom she called a b**ch), Lisa Vanderpump (saying she looked a little too thin these days, probably from Dancing With The Stars), and of course, Brandi Glanville, from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who was married to actor Eddie Cibrian before he had an affair and left her for country singer LeAnn Rimes.
Leakes had a few words for Glanville, calling her a trainwreck and claiming that she opens her mouth to say things she should keep to herself way too often:
“Brandi’s just a train wreck. Just a wreck. She’s just off the chain, she’s off the hook with a lot of the things that she has to say, just so talkative…she thinks she’s a gangsta, or something. She thinks she can get in people’s faces and say whatever she wants to say. I like her when she’s not drinking. Brandi and drinks don’t work for me.”
Of course, word of her comments made their way to Glanville and she got in touch with RadarOnline.com to clear the air and to remind Leakes that “she doesn’t even know me.”
“It doesn’t affect me. She doesn’t even know me. If she wants to sit down and hang out with me and my boys and come have dinner, come on over. Get to know me first. Then she can say what she wants about me.”
“At the end of the day, at least she’s talking about me. It doesn’t matter if she’s saying good or bad, she’s talking about me. And I am gangsta! Why can’t I be gangsta? Because I’m white, skinny and tall?!”
However, Glanville admits that the last time she ran into Leakes, she had too much too drink and might have said a few random things.
“I was totally tipsy…we were all just having fun. So I said I was gangsta. It’s NeNe…I could care less. I don’t know her. I enjoy her on the show and I think she’s really good TV, but as I was watching the show last night I felt like she was drinking her own kool-aid a little too much. It takes a village and we’re all in this together. Everyone on the show brings something different and they’re all important roles.”
But will they all be making $1 million for a season of Real Housewives? Me thinks not. But what do you think about what both women had to say? Was Leakes disrespectful, or is Glanville the one out here clowning?
