‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’: Why Is NeNe Leakes Currently Feuding With The Entire Cast?
From physical altercations to not holding back in arguments, Leakes is known for her over the top actions and opinionated conversations.
Over the course of eleven seasons, NeNe Leakes has found her friendships dwindling with each passing year and seems just fine with that.
Now that the reality star has practically burned bridges with practically the entire cast, will the drama just get worse in future seasons?
She recently unfollowed four of her castmates
NeNe Leakes has had her fair share of friendships come to an end and doesn’t feel any different when that continues to happen.
After eleven seasons, Leakes has officially cut ties with a good portion of her co-stars.
Following The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 11 finale reunion, the reality star unfollowed co-stars Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, Tanya Sams and Eva Marcille on social media.
She also unfollowed executive producer/ reunion host Andy Cohen.
Many might have speculated NeNe Leakes was a little fed up with the fellow Housewives during the reunion episodes, especially after Porsha Williams called her out for being a bad friend, which everyone else agreed to.
The fellow Housewives, as well as Andy Cohen, brought up the topic of Leakes’ marriage and supporting her husband, Gregg, as he undergoes stage 3 colon cancer treatment during the reunion.
Though NeNe admits to not being able to care for him and calling him “mean” and “grouchy” during recovery, the other Housewives couldn’t seem to take her side, which did not sit well with the reality star.
“It was an intense day of filming,” one source says, explaining that Gregg seemed to cause the most divide between the cast. “Andy asked a lot of fair questions, really grilling NeNe about the way she’s been treating Gregg recently, and the women universally seemed to stand up for Gregg. You could tell she was angry about that. It felt like a betrayal to her.”
The season finale unveiled a plethora of drama
Though the reunion had enough drama to last us a lifetime, most of NeNe Leakes’ beef with her castmates stems from the season 11 finale.
During the finale, which aired back in March, a ton of drama was captured between Leakes and her fellow castmates that many still can’t believe happened in just one episode.
First, NeNe got upset with Cynthia Bailey for inviting Kenya Moore (one of NeNe’s sworn enemies) to a wine cooler event she hosted.
Even though Baliey wasn’t expecting Kenya Moore to show up to the event, she still knew that Moore and Leakes did not get along at all.
Later in the episode, NeNe Leakes blows up on Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams for attempting to take a look in her bedroom closet after she repeatedly asked them to stay out.
The scene went from 1 to 100 so quick that Leakes ended up grabbing the cameraman by his shirt and ripping it in the process.
Though the reality star is currently not the biggest fans of her castmates at the moment, the fellow Housewives are trying not to take Leakes’ anger toward them to heart.
“I want her to be happy because I’m going to be happy with or without her. I really, truly pray for her and wish her well,” Bailey told Hollywood Life. “This is petty, high school, stupid nonsense. I’m always going to love Nene. I think Nene is great for the show. I still think she’s great and we don’t have to be friends and that’s OK.”
Whether NeNe Leakes and her fellow Housewives makeup or not, many of us are still looking forward to seeing if this drama continues into next season.
