On this week's February 23 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss was a little shocked when NeNe Leakes walked away from a perfectly good fight opportunity with one of her former close friends and bridesmaids, Marlo Hampton. The pair has been butting heads ever since Marlo started hanging out with Kenya Moore. But NeNe insists she had a good reason, and took to her Bravo blog to respond to Kandi's comments.
"Kandi, you have never seen me walk away from a fight and you have never seen me physically fight either have you?” she writes, continuing, “My son was at this event, and as much as I would like to be Mama Joyce and take my shoe off and hit somebody or drag someone down the street, I would never stoop so low to the gutter with my son around, so you are right!" Oo, shade thrown!
But NeNe wasn’t done yet, adding, "I know how to respect myself enough to walk away from something that no longer serves me, helps me grow, or makes me happy. In life you have to pick your battles; everything isn't worth fighting for or worth the emotional investment."
Personally, we were proud of NeNe for keeping her cool. We think she's come a long way and she showed a lot of maturity by leaving Nay-Nay behind. So, we can understand her frustration over being criticized for not fighting.
At the end of her blog, she concluded, "PS: If I had stayed and gotten into a fight, I would be wrong. If I walked away, I would be wrong. If I didn’t show up at all, I would be wrong. You can't win!"
Do you think NeNe made the right choice? Sound off below!
