Janet Hubert Slams “Ratchet” NeNe Leakes For Broadway Success
First Will and Jada, and now Janet Hubert is going after NeNe Leakes.
Apparently Janet, AKA Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s (first) Aunt Viv, is a bit sour regarding NeNe’s success on Broadway in recent years. According to the 60-year-old, the onetime Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member didn’t deserve her roles on the Great White Way, which have included The Fairy Godmother in Cinderella and, most recently, Matron “Mama” Morton in Chicago.

“Did you know NeNe Leakes made it on Broadway before Janet Hubert? Something’s wrong with the whole system of bad behavior being rewarded,” Janet told The L.A. Times. “I think in the black community, ratchet has became the new black, ghetto has become the new black.”
While we agree with Janet that some of NeNe’s RHoA behavior was “ratchet,” we also know the former reality TV darling to be pretty talented.

She can sing, she can act, and as of June 2015 she was no longer part of the RHoA cast — save for a few cameo appearances.
NeNe has yet to respond to Janet’s dig, but we don’t expect the silence to last long!
Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
