Just last month NeNe Leakes claimed she was “so done” with her former friend Cynthia Bailey and didn’t see herself being pals with the stunning model ever again, but now NeNe seems to be singing a different tune.

Mrs. Leakes spoke to Madame Noire about all that’s going on in her life these days — including her clothing line, Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, and much more — and when the topic of conversation turned to her failed friendships with Cynthia and Marlo Hampton, the latter of whom NeNe calls a “non-factor,” the RHoA vet was very open and honest.

According to NeNe, though she and Cyn had what she describes as “a real friendship in real life,” they only met because of the show and didn’t even know each other beforehand: “They signed Cynthia up to do this show. I never met her a day in my life. I know people said she modeled. I’m just keeping it real: I’d never seen her model, I never knew her name, I never knew anything about her. They brought her to my front door step and said ‘This is who you’re shooting with today.’ It was the first time I met her a day in my life.”


If you think that the end of NeNe and Cynthia’s friendship came out of nowhere, then you’re in good company because NeNe feels that way, as well. She reveals, “Cynthia — I honestly had a real friendship with her. I don’t know where all this is coming from.”

Still, as we promised above, things seem to be looking up for this duo. “It was sorted out on Season 7 for all of your guys to see,” NeNe dishes. “But, I must say, I feel like I’m a great friend to everybody who’s really been a friend in my life.”

Do you think NeNe and Cynthia really sorted out all of their differences, or are they still at odds with each other? Tell us your thoughts and theories below!
