NeNe Leakes on Wendy Williams: She’s Trying to Sabotage My Career
NeNe Leakes has never had a problem confronting the drama she encounters from her castmates on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but it looks like she may have finally met a bully she’s unsure about beating.
The 47-year-old star reveals to The YBF that talk show host Wendy Williams has been carrying out a vendetta against her — and she has no idea why! Wendy has been vocal in her criticisms of NeNe, from saying that NeNe had no chance of winning DWTS to calling her personalized Birkin bag, which she tagged with her catch phrases, “tacky.”
“The thing with Wendy Williams has been going on for a long time. I did not know where it was coming from,” says NeNe.
“I helped her and supported her and then all of a sudden it just switched on me. She started saying things about me. And I know Wendy does a lot of gossiping…that’s how she started her career. But to just start sabotaging me. I felt like she wanted to sabotage my career because she was really saying nasty things about me. And I have done nothing to Wendy. So for me…it was not about the bag.”
NeNe says that, when the two last saw each other, she was nothing but sweet to Wendy, although it seems as though her efforts were in vain.
“The last time I saw her, I was nice to her. When she had her 500th show I ‘d given her a gift (a $3,200 Celine Bag). Just to support another Black sister … I was very supportive of her. I gave her a full-on speech and hugged her. And GENUINELY meant it. And all of a sudden she was bashing me,” says NeNe.
While NeNe may have too much on her plate to try to dethrone Wendy as the entertainment industry’s favorite catchphrase coiner, we can see why Wendy might be bitter — with all of her newfound success, NeNe looks a whole lot like competition!
