NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey's fight wasn't reminiscent of NeNe's hair-pulling brawl with Kim Zolciak en route to Miami a few years ago, but even though this feud never got physical, we're afraid we have little hope that NeNe and Cynthia will ever be friends again, at least given what NeNe most recently said about her former BFF.
NeNe was a surprise guest on Watch What Happens Live's five-year anniversary celebration last night, July 17, and after weighing in on Apollo Nida's prison sentence, NeNe sounded off on the state of her friendship with Cynthia, and it's most definitely not looking good.
"There's no friendship, and there will not be. I am so done with her. I don't even have words for her," NeNe declared.
NeNe's fellow guest, Flipping Out's Jeff Lewis, asked if she'd be able to fake the relationship going into Season 7 of Real Housewives of Atlanta because he was always very fond of them together, but NeNe was most certainly not on board with that plan. "No, I will not," she snapped. We had a real friendship and I don't play those games."
If you're wondering why this feud seems to run so deep, then allow us to fill in some blanks. Apparently NeNe is angry and disappointed because Cynthia waited until the reunion to air her grievances with her co-star (like how NeNe criticized Cyn's parenting skills), and NeNe did not appreciate that.
NeNe continued, "We had a real friendship. I really loved her, and I feel like, if she had a issue with me, I don't understand somebody waiting six months to have a an issue with you, come over to your house, eat your food, go to the hospital, go to the Fashion Week with you, travel for New Years, and then all of a sudden sit on the couch and make up some s—t. She blindsided me sitting on the couch."
Jeff pointed out that Cynthia clearly loves NeNe and asked NeNe if she thinks she could ever find it in her heart to forgive her former friend — and luckily it wasn't total loss.
"I can forgive her, but I don't want to have a friendship with her," NeNe stated. "How dare you be my good friend and I be there for you, and you wait six months to tell me I did something wrong in front of people who don't give a damn about our friendship. If you were a true friend, you could've called me up and said, 'Hey, I need to talk to you. Come to my house, let's meet, let me come to your house.' Why would you bring this up in front of people who don't care about our friendship one way or the other?"
Jeff then wondered if NeNe could hear Cynthia out — jeez, who knew he was such a fan of their friendship? — but he struck out again. "No I can't hear that bitch out," NeNe asserted, later revealing that Cynthia never even apologized for her actions.
Yikes! This feud is clearly worse than NeNe and Kim's falling out. Do you think NeNe and Cynthia will ever be friends again, or is their relationship too far gone at this point? Check out NeNe's full rant below and tell us what you think!
