NeNe Leakes strikes back at all the shade

Posted Monday, November 6, 2017 by RODNEY HO/ on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

NeNe Leakes is the queen of shade, the perfect encapsulation of the world we live in.

So any other cast member of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" who dares criticize her, you better duck because it's going to come right back at ya. She can dish it but she sure can't take it with any real humility.

Andy Cohen invited her on "Watch What Happens Live" for a reason, to get her take on the first episode of season 10. She did not disappoint.

"I will respond to all those b****s," she said.

She was relatively kind to Kenya: "Kenya took a personal attack and she would not like it if I attacked her."

Porsha, who noted how different NeNe looked, got some serious NeNe nasties: "Porsha said I look different? She looks different, too. She's gained a lot of weight!"

And Sheree saying she wouldn't tell NeNe anything of consequence? "Well, I will tell you right now, that wig is a no!"

She also denied saying she wanted Porsha fired, though when a caller asked who should be let go from the show, NeNe said Porsha. So technically, she didn't say that word but she certainly meant it.

She said she wouldn't mind going back to "The Wendy Williams Show," saying the hate is one sided.
