NeNe Leakes on RHOA: ‘The Hate Is Real’

The latest episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (RHOA) Season 7 gave hope for the fans of NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey’s friendship. However, in Leakes’s appearance on “Huffpost Live” with the host, Caitlyn Becker, last Dec. 16, 2014, the outspoken star said her friendship with Bailey is already beyond repair. She revealed that the other housewives did not support her in Broadway.

Leakes said she is never going to be friends with Bailey again.


“When you break my trust to that degree…I honestly cannot move forward with you,” she said on Huffington Post Live.

The 47-year-old reality star felt Bailey betrayed her. She kept on reminding everyone that she loved Bailey like her own sister.

She compared her damaged friendship with Bailey to a dysfunctional romantic relationship. According to her, it was similar to dating a deceiving guy who would suddenly move in with another girl.

“And you’re like… ‘I thought we were good?’” she explained.

Bailey was not the only one who Leakes felt bad with. Leakes is currently starring in a Broadway revival of “Cinderella” as the evil stepmother. She admitted on Huffington Post Live that the housewives never seen her show.

“The hate is real, the hate is really real,” she said.

The glamorous housewife even admitted that she does not watch her own show, “RHOA.” She was afraid that negativity would consume her and affect her Broadway performance.

Leakes took it personally because her own co-stars never watched her, while the other housewives of New Jersey, New York and Orange County have seen her performance. Although Portia and Phaedra sent her text messages of congratulations, she felt more touched with the housewives of different franchises.

Leakes remembered her support for the housewives in the past. She supported Kandi’s sex toy line, attended Bailey Agency’s opening and consoled Porsha with her issues.


She became optimistic about supporting the Georgia peaches no matter what her problem is with them.

“If they don’t want to come, it’s fine. Because I’m killin’ the character,” she laughed.
