Raven-Symoné is trying to clear the air with one very upset reality star. 

After appearing on The View on Nov. 17, Nene Leakes told Andy Cohen the ladies of the daytime talk show had not been as welcoming to her as their guest.

"I felt like they were not kind to me. I just...honestly, they weren't kind," she told the late night host during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. "I could tell you that there were a couple of people on that panel who were very shady."

When Cohen asked her if she was referring to the panel's youngest co-host, Raven-Symoné, Leakes answered "probably."

While getting ready with BeGlammed at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel before her 30th birthday party at the Beacher's Madhouse, the former Disney star sat down with E! News to say her peace on the matter.

"I feel sad for her. She came to my house party. I don't understand what happened, but that's her right if she felt that way. Just like our opinion, that's her opinion," Raven told E! News. "Sorry, girl. My bad."

As the subject of regular public criticism, the 30-year-old actress has accepted it's all part of her job as a pundit at The View's table. 

"I'm in a job where it's about opinions and it's about my opinion on certain things and so everyone gets scrutinized for their opinion even though we live in America and we're supposed to have free speech," she told E! News. "I think that the best way that I can handle it is say my piece, stand behind my truth and move on myself."

As for handling the backlash, Raven quite literally turns a blind eye to it. 

"I don't read comments when they're negative and nasty," she said.
