Raven-Symoné Apologizes to NeNe Leakes for Her Cold Reception on The View
The talk show host wants to move past the daytime drama with the #RHOA alum.
Earlier this month, NeNe Leakes called out Raven-Symoné for being one of the shadier ladies during her tense appearance on The View in November that caused The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum to call the co-hosts "mean girls" on Twitter. NeNe told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she felt like Raven had been particularly unfriendly toward her, looking her up and down "real nasty-like." "They just weren't kind," NeNe said. "They did not have nice manners."
Now, Raven is finally speaking out about the incident, and she's sorry NeNe came away from her time on The View feeling the way she did. "I feel sad for her. She came to my house party. I don't understand what happened, but that's her right if she felt that way. Just like our opinion, that's her opinion," Raven told E! News. "Sorry, girl. My bad."
Earlier in her interview with E! News, Raven addressed what it's like dealing with criticism in general on such a large scale as one of the members of The View's roundtable. "I'm in a job where it's about opinions and it's about my opinion on certain things, and so everyone gets scrutinized for their opinion even though we live in America and we're supposed to have free speech," she said. "I think that the best way that I can handle it is say my peace, stand behind my truth, and move on myself."
Raven's View co-host Whoopi Goldberg also addressed the incident when she appeared on WWHL last week. “Well, you know, then come back another day and try again,” Whoopi said after hearing that NeNe felt especially attacked by Raven and Joy Behar.
While we wait and see if NeNe returns to The View to accept Raven's apology, check out this moment from Whoopi's time on WWHL in the clip, below.
