RHOA star NeNe Leakes is currently starring in Broadway’s Cinderella and is opening up about the lack of support from her RHOA co-stars, her feud with her former BFF Cynthia Bailey and more.
â€œThe hate is realâ€¦ the hate is really real,â€ NeNe HuffPost Live, adding that while she is working on Broadway she doesn’t watch RHOA. â€œI donâ€™t want to get caught up in the negativity.â€
â€œWe have our differences but in some big instances I will be there for support. I did it out of the goodness of my heart,” NeNe says, reminding us that she has supported her co-stars in all of their ventures.
In fact, none of NeNe’s RHOA cast mates have seen her perform!
â€œI have gotten a text from Phaedra saying she and Porsha are going to be coming next week,” NeNe reveals. â€œIt doesnâ€™t hurt my feelings. Working with a bunch of women itâ€™s difficult sometimes. But not showing upâ€¦ it says A LOT.â€
â€œWhen I said the words, â€˜The thirst is real,â€™ I was talking about a certain someone being thirsty, so thirsty, that they were willing to do anything to be around, or do anything to be in the publicâ€™s eye,â€ NeNe adds, insinuating she was talking about Cynthia Bailey.
â€œIâ€™m not friends with Cynthia, now or never,â€ NeNe insists. â€œWhen you break my trust to that degree, unfortunately for me, I canâ€™t move forward. And maybe thatâ€™s something that I need to pray about, but I honestly cannot move forward with you.â€
â€œWe never really made up,â€ NeNe reveals. â€œIâ€™m just not gonna be friends with her. We shared so many things; talked about so many thingsâ€¦ even gossiping about the other girls!â€
â€œI just thought she would have enough respect for me to say, â€˜We need to talkâ€¦ this is not going well anymore,â€™â€ NeNe continues. â€œTo me it felt like if you were dating a boyfriend and then he leads you on and on. And you come home one day, and he is like, â€˜No, I moved out and I moved in with my new girlfriend.â€™ And youâ€™re like, â€˜What happened, I thought we were good? What did I do wrong?â€™â€
Switching topics, NeNe also revealed that she is “cool” with RHONJ star Teresa Giudice, who recently took her daughter’s to see Cinderella.
â€œI always say to her, â€˜You have to just live your life.â€™ But Iâ€™m not getting ready to do what sheâ€™s getting ready to do,â€ NeNe says. â€œSo I donâ€™t give advice on that. I say, â€˜Youâ€™re gonna be fine. And when youâ€™re done, youâ€™re gonna start your life back all over again. This is the beginning of your new life.â€™â€ NeNe says she plans to stay in touch with Teresa while sheâ€™s in prison and to have a â€œbloopâ€ and â€œa thirst is real conversationâ€ so Teresa can â€œbust out laughing.â€
And what about Brandi Glanville’s recent claims that NeNe is one of Andy Cohen’s favorite Housewives?
â€œI cannot say that Iâ€™m Andyâ€™s favorite, I think Andy has a few favoritesâ€¦â€ she insists. â€œAndy and I have been together since day 1, thatâ€™s just what it is, so heâ€™s known me longer than heâ€™s known any of these girls. I think that makes it very hard on me because he asks me tougher questions because he doesnâ€™t want people to think heâ€™s picking sides.â€
NeNe says that she believes Lisa Vanderpump and Bethenny Frankel are also Andy’s favorites. â€œI think he likes Teresa too,â€ she adds. â€œWe make him some pretty good money, so we should be his faves!â€
