It’s only Monday, but NeNe Leakes is in the middle of some serious drama. First, there is the small matter of the ongoing feud with fellow Real Housewife Kim Zolciak, and then she goes and says some less-than appropriate comments to a heckler. But let’s start at the beginning.
NeNe’s feud with Kim stems from a video that Kim’s daughter Brielle posted from NeNe’s house, where there appears to be a bit of a bug problem.
Here’s the video in question:
When NeNe saw this video, she was pissed. She soon went on a rant against Brielle, calling her a wannabe Kylie Jenner (amongst other things): “We don’t have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky p—y! Please know I will get You all the way together when you start f-cking wit me and mine! Go somewhere and let the air outta those fake lips, fake titties and fake ass because you will never be @kylejenner.”
But that wasn’t quite enough for NeNe, who went on to say, “You had to stoop so low and be so disgusting #racisttrash #jealous #KKK #thirsty you better run yo ass back to a child’s place.” Yikes.
She also posted a selfie with the caption: “I fell asleep thinking about how imma live in my ROACH infested brand new home” and used the captions #jealousprejudiceb-tch #disgusting #howlowwillyougo #ohithoughtyoudidntseeme #pottymouthtrashychildren #learnedbehavior #donteverspeaktome #thisiswhyiwouldntdoashowwithyou #youwillneverwinthis #blackpeopleneedtostopsupportingtheprejudice.
Kim fired back with her own Instagram rant:
She captioned the photo, “At this point I almost feel sad for you @neneleakes I had hoped for many yrs you would have seen the bigger picture but it’s evident you haven’t, I will continue to pray for you.”
And now we’ve got ourselves a full-blown feud. Kim was on The Real attempting to clear up the rumors, but honestly we are still a little confused about the whole thing. According to the interview and a post on Instagram, Brielle wasn’t even aware that there was a bug in the first video, but returned to the bathroom after people kept sending her messages about it. The video was never sent to anyone, and Kim insists that NeNe is the leaker. Now that we are talking about leakers, maybe Russia is behind it all. I don’t know. I am literally analyzing a feud over bugs, so anything is possible.
NeNe responded to the interview in an Instagram comment, as you do.
And as if that drama wasn’t enough, NeNe ended up in hot water after responding to hecklers in the audience of one of her stand-up shows by telling her that she hoped she would get raped by her Uber driver.
Cue collective cringe:
Leakes was performing at the Paramount Theatre in California with other female comedians like Tiffany Haddish and Loni Love, when a heckler began booing her. In the video below, you can hear some other members of the audience joining in, and then Leakes yelling, “I ain’t even gonna get to tell you about the God d–n Uber driver. I hope he rape yo ass tonight when he take you home, b-tch. And steal yo’ funky hello kitty, b-tch.” There are a few more choice words thrown around as well. You can watch the video here:
After facing backlash over her comments, NeNe posted the following statement on Facebook and Instagram, apologizing for taking it too far.
But if you thought she was about to apologize to Kim and her daughter, you are better off waiting until pigs sprout wings and fly, because it looks like it ain’t gonna happen. But at least she acknowledged that wishing someone would be raped was wrong and didn’t pull her famous:
From an audition, to a pilot shoot, to the Laugh Factory for a few jokes, watch Tiffany Haddish take us on a hilarious LA adventure.
