When the one and only NeNe Leakes was a guest on Watch What Happens Live last night, January 12, viewers were eager to get the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s opinion on pretty much anything. And when our girl was done giving her opinions on the fashions of the Golden Globes, she weighed in on the stuff that really matters, like what she thinks of her pal Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas.
First though, the curious caller wanted to know if NeNe and Cyn are as friendly off screen as they seem to be when the cameras are rolling. “We’re friends on and off screen,” NeNe declared, before noting that the pair talk everyday on the phone — sometimes even more than once.
As for the meatier part of the question, the caller also wanted to know what NeNe’s thoughts are on the state of Cynthia and Peter’s marriage, which has been coming under fire as of late in light. If you remember, Peter recently admitted that he considered leaving Cynthia because of her fibroids, plus we’ve seen a lot of fights between the recently on the show.
At first, the always outspoken NeNe was reluctant to even divulge her opinion. “Whenever I have an opinion honey the whole Atlanta catch on fire,” she explained with a laugh. “It’s almost like I can’t have an opinion but everybody else can.”
Despite her initial weariness, NeNe went ahead and put her two cents in. “I think it’s their problem. Everybody’s marriage is different and Peter is outspoken and Cynthia’s a little bit more mild-mannered. I think Cynthia can handle him though.”
We gotta give NeNe props for staying pretty diplomatic, you definitely don’t want to get in between a married couple!
