It looks like the ratings-generating throwdown between Wendy Williams and NeNe Leakes that we were all expecting, isn’t going to happen after all.

Wendy recently threw some shade at the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, telling her that her dreams of taking home the highly coveted Dancing With the Stars mirrorball trophy would never come true.

Wendy, a former DWTS vet herself, claimed that NeNe’s chances at walking away with reality TV gold were slim, thanks to her partner, Tony Dovolani.

“He’s not fun, NeNe,” said Wendy. “I wish you well, but you all aren’t going to win.”

However, hoping to avoid NeNe pulling out her glorious weave in retaliation, Wendy clarified her stance on NeNe’s chances on her talk show, explaining that she had little faith in any of this season’s contestants.

Wendy, who acknowledged that NeNe “did a great job,” said of the alleged dis, “A lot of websites are saying that, ‘Wendy Williams slams NeNe Leakes telling her she won’t win…’ Well, if you’re a regular Wendy watcher, I told them all they won’t win.”

To make sure she got her initial point across (which we think she did a fine job of the first time), Wendy added, “NeNe’s not gonna win, but neither is Billy Dee Williams.”

Uhh … apology accepted?

What do you think of Wendy’s explanation for saying NeNe wouldn’t win? Should she have offered a real apology?
