If there was ever an example of a person who can dish it but can’t take it, it’s Nene Leakes. Homegirl is sensitive. Today, she appeared on “The View” to discuss her new role in the Broadway play Chicago. But you can’t have Nene in the place without discussing “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Reality Tea reported that Nene said she might appear on the show from time to time because it was a great career move for her. And in true Real Housewives fashion, she flaunted a bit of her fortune by showing the ladies and the audience pictures of her new house.
But there was something missing…furniture.
And never ones to hold their tongues, Whoopi and then Joy Behar were quick to call her out on it.
Whoopi: But where is the furniture Nene? You’re there but where is the furniture?
Nene: They told me to…I didn’t want to show pictures of my furniture so we gave pictures to you guys when we first bought the house.
Joy: Why can’t we see the furniture?
Nene: Because honey, we have to have security measures. Rolls eyes
Joy: But you’re showing the house…
Nene: I showed the outside and I’m behind many gates, with security.
Joy: How would the furniture?..oh…well.. Waves hands.
You could tell it was a bit of a nice-nasty interaction. But in case there was any confusion about how Nene felt about the whole thing, she took to Twitter to explain.
“Just sat with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don’t belong! The HATE was so real & SAD”
Nene certainly has a personality for the stage with all of those dramatics. The tweet has since been deleted.
I like Nene, but let’s be real. When you’re showing pictures of your house on national television, you’re really not concerned about security measures, honey. People don’t have to see what you have inside of your house in order to want to break into it. It’s all quite comical, considering we were all up in through Nene and Greg’s house when they were on the show for all those years. Stop the games.
And if it were someone sitting in her position, trying to push that explanation, Leakes would have asked the same question. If memory serves, she’s had plenty to say about Chateau Sheree…or lack thereof. It’s literally the same thing, just varying degrees.
Just because someone doesn’t agree with you or some of your actions, it doesn’t make them mean.
What do you think about Nene’s appearance on “The View”? Do you think the women were mean to her or did they ask legitimate questions?
