NeNe Leakes has discovered something many a girl has unfortunately been through: a bridesmaid is not necessarily forever. After a Watch What Happens Live caller asked her about the status of her fraught friendship with former bestie and bridesmaid Cynthia Bailey—the pair had a huge falling out last season—NeNe had an immediate response. "There's no friendship and there will not be. I am so done with her. I don't even have words for her."
NeNe went on to explain that she feels betrayed by Cynthia's rehashing of old wounds at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. "We had a real friendship. I really loved her," she explains. "I feel like if she had an issue with me, I don't understand somebody waiting 6 months to have an issue with you: come over your house, eat your food, go to the hospital, go to Fashion Week with you, travel for New Year's, and then, all of a sudden, sit on the couch and make up some s--t. She blindsided me sitting on the couch."
Fellow WWHL guest Jeff Lewis, who, along with lots of RHOA fans, seems to have a vested interest in NeNe and Cynthia's relationship, kept telling NeNe that he thinks Cynthia clearly loves her. "Maybe you could hear her out," he pleaded. "I wonder if you can find it in your heart to forgive her."
But NeNe shut that down pretty quickly. "I can forgive her but I don't want to have a friendship with her," she said. "How dare you be my good friend and I be there for you and you wait 6 months to tell me that there's something wrong in front of people who don't give a damn about our friendship?"
Cynthia hasn't responded to NeNe's thoughts on their friendship—but she did tease that she is over "all the drama" when she posted the following inspirational quote on Instagram Friday.
