NeNe Leakes, Watch What Happens Live


NeNe Leakes has spilled the tea.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Sunday, where host Andy Cohen asked her to dish on the drama that happened on The View Nov. 17. The taping in question got off to a rough start, with Joy Behar telling NeNe that her jewelry had injured her shoulder during their walk to the table. Joy later irritated NeNe by asking why she bothered to divorce Gregg Leakes only to remarry him. Later on, after NeNe claimed that some other reality stars had been trying to "imitate the Nene Leakes brand," the reinstated co-host joked that NeNe is "very modest," telling her, "No wonder you're friends with Donald Trump."

The episode got even more uncomfortable when NeNe shared pictures of her new home. Joy wondered aloud why NeNe didn't provide any pictures of the house after it had been furnished.

"I didn't say I was voting for him, honey," NeNe replied. "I said I liked him." After her talk show appearance, she tweeted, "Just sat with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don't belong. The HATE was so real & SAD." NeNe later deleted the message.

"What happened on The View the other day?" Andy asked Sunday.

"Oh, yes, honey. Let's read The View. What do you need to know? Tell me all about it," NeNe said. "Well, I didn't see any of those ladies that's on the panel until I actually walked on the panel. And I felt like they were not kind to me. I just...honestly, they weren't kind. It's not even 'felt like.'"

"Was it a Joy thing?" Andy asked. "Was it more than Joy?"

"It was more than Joy," the reality star turned Broadway star explained. "Now, Joy was definitely throwing a lot of shade, but there was someone else on the panel that threw shade as well, as far as looking me up and down. Now, we were live, so as far as what the cameras shot or showed, I don't know. It didn't show everything. But I could tell you that there were a couple of people on that panel who were very shady. Now, they welcomed me to their home­—"

"You're talking about Raven-Symoné," Andy said.

"Probably," NeNe replied.

"Right," Andy said. "She was looking you and down?"

NeNe said Raven-Symoné was indeed looking her up and down, "real nasty-like." In fact, she added, "I didn't like that, because look, first of all, I was invited to their show. I was there to promote Chicago and other things. They asked me to bring pictures of my home there, and I brought the pictures they asked me to bring. And they just weren't kind. They did not have nice manners. I know all of them are tired: their hairstyles are tired, their makeup is tired. Whatever."
