NeNe Leakes Isn't the Least Bit Surprised by That Phaedra Parks Bombshell at the Atlanta Reunion

NeNe Leakes Reacts to Phaedra Parks Being Exposed on the #RHOA Reunion

NeNe Leakes may not have appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta this season, but the alum certainly had a thing or two to say about the shocking Part 3 of the reunion. We mean, who didn't?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

The RHOA alum appeared on Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and in typical NeNe fashion, she did not hold back, especially when it came to dishing on the reunion bombshell that Phaedra Parks had actually started the rumors about Kandi Burruss trying to drug Porsha Williams. "I'm not surprised," NeNe reacted to the moment. "Phaedra been doing this bullsh** for a very long time. Phaedra did this exact same thing to me, as we've already discussed before. Years ago, on the show when she first came on, she brought on my half-biological sister on the show and filmed with her the same way she did with Kandi when she brought that Johnnie [Winston] guy on. She did the same thing to me, tried to take me down, and it didn't work because we ended up getting it before it even hit the air. So Phaedra's been doing stuff like this. She just got caught with these girls."

Later on in the show, NeNe weighed in on why Phaedra would spread the gossip in the first place. "I don't know," NeNe told Andy Cohen. "I just think that Phaedra is just a person — we've said it for so long — that has a way of wanting to be seen one way, but she does all these things behind camera. She's always been that way. This is not anything new. It may be new to you guys, but for us that work with her, we've always known her to be that person."

Why Did Phaedra Parks Start the Kandi Rumor?

And just because Porsha didn't actually start the rumors about Kandi doesn't mean that NeNe is letting her off the hook, either, since she had a hand in spreading them. "Porsha is not innocent at all. As I've said to so many people, 'If you and I decide to rob the bank together, if I mastermind it and you carry out the plan, and we went before a judge, we both would be sentenced, honey, for life in prison, child.' So Porsha is just as guilty as Phaedra," NeNe explained. "She ain't that damn dumb when she's saying somebody raped her and wanted to do all this crazy stuff to her. She could've simply asked Kandi. Who sits up and carries this lie out throughout the entire season without even asking them?"

Porsha Williams’ Role in the Rumor About Kandi Burruss

NeNe then said on the WWHL After Show that she sees Phaedra and Porsha's Frick and Frack-ship going "nowhere" in the future. As for her own friendship with Phaedra, which seemed to be back on track but is now clearly strained again, NeNe said she doesn't know where they went wrong. "I thought Phaedra and I were cool, but again, she's such a fraud, who knows?" NeNe told one WWHL caller during the After Show. "I don't know what happened. All I know is I showed up in Jamaica, and Phaedra was no longer talking to me, and Porsha was no longer talking to me. I don't know. All I know is I guess Phaedra has a way of twisting people's minds. So Porsha wasn't talking to me anymore. She wasn't talking to a lot of people anymore. I don't know what Phaedra does. I don't know. I was cool with Phaedra."

You better buckle up, because this was just the start of the most explosive RHOA reunion ever. Prepare for the exciting conclusion, below.
