Are NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams no longer friends? As part 3 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 reunion show aired, NeNe posted a tweet that seemingly called Porsha a “dumb b***h.”
She attached to her tweet a photo of her smiling and waving to the camera while backstage at the reunion.
NeNe’s tweet received a lot of comments from fans asking why she would publicly call Porsha out like that. People expressed bewilderment at NeNe’s tweet since she and Porsha are supposedly friends. Some people reminded NeNe that Porsha was there for her last season when she and Cynthia Bailey were no longer friends. Some people also accused NeNe of turning against Porsha now that she’s on good terms with most of the other women.
On part 3 of the reunion, NeNe, who appeared in a few episodes towards the end of the season, joined the women on the couch. She took a seat next to host Andy Cohen, right next to Porsha. During her appearance, NeNe revealed that her relationships with many of the women had improved. Surprisingly, she said that she was even “in a much better place” with Kenya Moore, whose eyes she previously “wanted to snatch…out of her head.”
NeNe expressed happiness for Kenya in regards to her relationship with fitness trainer Matt Jordan, and said that she hopes that Kenya’s relationship with Matt works out.
“I’m really happy for Kenya. She needs love. I am really happy for her. I want this to really work for her.”
NeNe also said that her relationships with Sheree Whitfield and Kandi Burruss, both of whom she had drama with in previous seasons, had improved.
The one person NeNe Leakes had a bit of an argument with at the reunion show was Porsha Williams. It was revealed on the reunion that Porsha physically attacked a friend during Phaedra Parks’ Christmas party. While footage of the fight wasn’t shown on the season finale episode that featured Phaedra’s Christmas party, some footage was shown on the reunion show. The footage showed Porsha chasing Jami, a former employee and friend, down an alley outside of the venue, taking her to the ground and attacking her as Jami yells for her to get off. Porsha explained that Jami was showing “a lot of disrespect being blown around” and “it just escalated.”
Host Andy Cohen pointed out that Porsha has been in three physical altercations so far while filming the show. Porsha defended herself by saying that she was put in situations that provoked her. NeNe chimed in to say that she has been in plenty of situations where she was ripped apart and criticized. NeNe reminded Porsha that as long as she’s in front of a camera, she’ll be judged. NeNe added that she has not touched anybody. Porsha immediately brought up NeNe’s drama with former co-star Kim Zolciak.
“Didn’t you choke somebody?”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kim filed a police report in July 2009, claiming that NeNe grabbed her neck and tried to choke her out during an argument in April of that year.
NeNe immediately responded that there’s no footage of that and that Porsha needs to use her brain.
“When was that? Did you see any footage of it? But have you seen any footage of it? Lets be clear, hold on, lets be clear. Have you seen me choke anybody? Well lets use our brain…Well first of all, if I have, I bet you I was smart enough to not have it on the camera but you wasn’t.”
While the other women laughed, in particular Sheree Whitfield and Kandi Burruss, Porsha kept calm and conceded NeNe’s point. In a softer voice, NeNe reminded Porsha that she can’t get physical, and that doing so will “tarnish” her brand and hurt her business opportunities.
“Porsha, you cannot put your hands on anybody else. You know that.”
Besides Porsha Williams, perhaps NeNe Leakes was also referring to Kim Fields with her “dumb b*****s” tweet? After all, NeNe did say on The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show that Kim isn’t a good fit for the show.
“I feel like she doesn’t want to be friends with anybody. I like Kim, but I did not or do not think that Kim is a fit for this group of girls.”
