‘RHOA’: Wendy Williams Caught in the Middle of Nene Leakes, Kenya Moore Feud
Wendy Williams has been caught in the middle of the NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore feud on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. After Bravo released a mid-season trailer of what’s coming up, the TV host is seen making an appearance. Williams is close to both Moore and Leakes and the video shows when the latter calls the first for advice.
Williams started her show on Friday, January 17 telling her co-hosts she would make an appearance on RHOA.
“I knew this was going to happen but I kind of forgot about it because me a NeNe talk all the time,” Williams said. “There’s a new guest appearance… ME!”
When the co-hosts found out Williams was going to show up on RHOA they went excited and cheered.
“I’m on the phone with NeNe and I knew that I was being recorded,” she continued adding that Leakes wanted her to physically appear on the show. Williams declined the invitation but she agreed to have a conversation with Leakes over the phone.
In the trailer, Williams is heard on the phone advising Leakes about the multiple feuds she’s having with the ladies.
“Give these girls friendship and love,” Williams is heard saying.
Kenya Moore talks to Wendy Williams
Moore stopped by The Wendy Williams Show ahead of the premiere of season 12 of RHOA. The Bravo star did not hold back about when she thinks the feud with Leakes started.
“When I had a high-risk pregnancy, that I wanted my entire life, she never once called me,” Moore told Williams. “When I did show up, she never checked on my child. She never said, ‘Is everything okay?’ when she learned I wasn’t going to be on the show. She never said, ‘Are you okay girl, do you need anything?’ And then when she did see me eight months pregnant, she called me a monster and said that my child was a buffalo and she was hurling insults.”
Moore then made the revelation that Leakes tried to spit on her during one of their intense arguments.
“She tried to act like she was going to spit on me,” Moore revealed saying that the OG of Atlanta was “hawking up” her saliva. “You will see that on the show.”
When Williams asked if it was true she was going after Leakes’ paycheck, the former Miss USA titleholder put the latter on blast.
“Kandi makes the most money, so if I was coming for anybody’s purse and bag, it would be Kandi’s,” Moore said. “Kandi is the real HBIC on that show. I’m just a player. I have a nice coin. I love the little bag I take home at night and it feeds my child very well. So I’m not coming for anybody’s money.”
NeNe Leakes calls Wendy Williams
Since Leakes and Williams have a close relationship, the former called the latter to make things clear about her incident with Moore.
“After Kenya left, I’m on my way home commuting and the phone rings, who do you think it was? Nene,” Williams told her co-hosts the next day. “Nene’s like, ‘Wendy, I didn’t even watch, but my phone was blowing up. First of all, I didn’t spit in her face.’”
Williams feels caught in the middle of both RHOA stars.
“I told NeNe, ‘You’re my friend. Kenya’s a friend on the show,’” Williams continued. “Two totally different things. But NeNe was, she was nice, she took it like a champ. She understands our friendship is forged. But she also understands I got love for Kenya.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs every Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
