Don’t come for NeNe Leakes unless she sends for you.
Joy Behar and the rest of The View co-hosts clearly didn’t get this memo when the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star dropped by their show Tuesday to discuss her upcoming Broadway gig in Chicago. Joy wasted no time making things uncomfortable, first noting that NeNe’s jewelry hurt her shoulder when they hugged. “If I’ve got a black a blue mark, I’m ’gonna sue your ass,” she said.
Things continued on, albeit cold as ice. Joy kept pressing about NeNe’s divorce and remarriage to husband Gregg, but Ms. Leakes was here for none of it. When Joy asked what lessons NeNe taught Gregg from kicking him to the curb, she shadily said, “To never cross me in the wrong way. How about that?” Yikes! Seems more like a dig at Joy than Gregg, eh?
But it all came to a hella-awkward fever pitch when NeNe said many reality stars want to copy her brand. Joy then called NeNe “modest” and compared her to Donald Trump. To this, NeNe cheekily said, “I didn’t say I was voting for [Donald], honey, I said I liked him.” Zing!
Well, a girl can only take so many subtle insults. NeNe took to Twitter after her appearance, posting, “Just sat down with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don’t belong.” (She’s since deleted the post.)
And you know what? Good on you, NeNe. Joy may have meant well, but she was definitely taking backhanded jabs left and right throughout the entire interview. Our only complaint is that she deleted the tweet! We vote Joy and NeNe make an appearance on RHOA and duke it out for real. Something tells us this isn’t over yet!
