Cynthia Bailey- “Nene Does NOT Deserve My Friendship”


It looks like Nene Leakes is on the outs with ANOTHER former BFF, Cynthia Bailey, both of Real Housewives of Atlanta fame. Cynthia has spoken to In Touch Weekly to address their falling out. Cynthia tells In Touch, “She doesn’t deserve my friendship. She insulted my husband by calling him a “bitch” or “acting like a bitch” or however you want to put it—it all leads to “bitch,” which is completely offensive and disrespectful and I would never, under any circumstance, speak to her husband that way.”

Cynthia admitted she was hopeful at first that they could reconcile, claiming, “I thought, honestly, that we would be able to get past it. But when I saw what she said about me on Watch What Happens Live, I was speechless. I know what I bring to the show. I was relevant before the show, I’m relevant on the show and guess what? I’ll be relevant after the show. I know for a fact that I bring the class and the balance and the grace to the show and I know people tune in specifically because of me and my husband. What she did is just despicable. I would never do that to her even if we were not friends.”

Bailey continued talking about their fallout, saying, “I think the world was shocked to see her really turn on me. I know all of the sides to NeNe’s personality so I know that she has that in her to turn on people. I just always thought we had that same respect for each other, but at the end of the day, she obviously didn’t respect me as much as I respect her, which is why I decided to just move on.”

She wrapped up the interview with discussing if they could ever possibly rekindle their friendship, saying, “I feel like the only way we would ever be friends again is if she truly apologizes to me and mean it and then I would be open to it, but I don’t owe her an apology. I haven’t done anything to her, so since she doesn’t apologize for anything and is never wrong about anything, that’s going to be a cold day in hell before that ever happens so I don’t foresee us being friends going forward. Don’t get me wrong, I wish her continued success. But I’m never going to step down to NeNe’s level. She is going to have to step up to mine if we’re ever going to be friends again.”
