Cynthia Bailey appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen after part 2 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion aired Sunday night. During the reunion it was revealed that Cynthia’s longtime friendship with NeNe Leakes has come to an end and Cynthia spoke out about the situation live.
Andy rolled the clip his one-on-one interview with NeNe where she implied Cynthia wasn’t bringing anything to the show.
“I want people to know that, again, I was a very loyal friend to NeNe,” Cynthia says. “However, I’m actually glad that she did that show with you because it actually validated that she was never my friend, that she was actually my worst enemy. For her to go on national television and say such things is just unheard of. So we aren’t talking now, that suddenly means I can’t be on the show because you don’t want me on the show? NeNe doesn’t control my destiny, God controls my destiny. I was relevant before the show, I’m relevant on the show and I’ll be relevant after the show.”
“The wind blowing thing, the wind is fine as long as it’s blowing up her ass,” Cynthia says of her former friend. “For me it boils down toâ€¦ and I don’t really wanna do this a whole lot because I know what it is and NeNe knows what it is, and I think the whole world knows that I was this girl’s friend. It’s about respect and accountability. She never thinks she’s wrong about anything and she never admits when she’s wrong.”
During the middle of the show, NeNe posted a message to Cynthia on the internet, which Andy read live. “Why didn’t you pull me aside to tell me how you were feeling instead of bringing our friendship up in front of a bunch of people who don’t care? Surely I’m worthy of that considering I have carried you on my back. Goodbye friend. P.S. If you or anyone else thinks the demise of our friendship is your storyline for season 7, think again, flip-flopper.”
Cynthia responded live. “Okay, well first we won’t even get into story lines. NeNe is the one who doesn’t have storyline, if anything she should be glad we got into it, because that was her storyline this season. Let’s be clear about that.”
Cynthia continues, “In regards to pulling someone aside, why didn’t she pull me aside before she came on this showÂ and tried to get me fired off the show?”
LeakesÂ took to her Instagram to post proof that her and Cynthia were friends after their trip to Mexico.
“I will not give u anymore of my energy since I was such a bad friend! When u look @ ur wedding photos, think of me! Enuff said,” Leakes tweeted.Â
