NeNe Leakes Offers An Update On Her Friendship With Wendy Williams After RHOA Departure Claims; Says “I Just Pretty Much Want To Move On From It”

NeNe Leakes is sharing an update about her relationship with Wendy Williams after the daytime talk show host’ claim that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star plans to quit the Bravo hit reality series. On Thursday, the self-proclaimed ‘rich bitch’ shared a video to her new YouTube page addressing the topic.

“Wendy and I are friends,” said Leakes of Williams, according to PEOPLE. “I have vented to her on many occasions. That particular day, I did not vent to her, I just sent her one text. And then she went out on the couch and started talking.”

“I think that personal private conversations should stay private,” Leakes added. “I think that anybody should be able to vent to a friend without a friend totally outing them or saying what they said to anyone. I just … it was not a cool thing.

Leakes then revealed where her friendship with Williams stands now. “She and I have since talked about it. We talked about it, we texted about it,” Leakes said. “I just pretty much want to move on from it. Hopefully, that is behind me, and I’m moving on.”

However, Leakes admits that she is still upset by the situation. “When stuff like that happens, it really hurts because it’s like, you don’t know if you can trust anybody,” Leakes said. “Like, who can you trust? Who can you talk to? It’s just like, ‘Oh my gosh, you can’t talk to anybody about anything person!’ So I’ve dealt with that.”



Williams dropped a bombshell during Tuesday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show. While interviewing Bravo super-fan Jerry O'Connell, Wendy revealed, “Here's the phone call that I got. I took a break between commercials, my office is right there behind the set. I had to go to the bathroom and so I looked at my phone in between commercials. And NeNe texts, 'I'm quitting.' 9:08 this morning. I'm surprised I got it, because I have no service in my office, but I got it.”

Wendy added, “I have got to say something but I'm not gonna say a whole lot. I know something about NeNe that you all will cry, be sad, feel bad for her. She's carrying the weight of a huge thing on her shoulders.”

Wendy confirmed NeNe's private struggle has nothing to do with her husband Gregg Leakes' health and said NeNe's sons are “fine.”

“I'm not going to say it, she's got to say it: you need this platform to explain to other part of your life," Wendy said. "Forget hair pieces and arguing with them broads—you've got that secret, and that secret is going to melt their hearts. Because when she shared it with me, I cried with her, Jerrry.”

Following Williams' bombshell, Leakes' rep revealed that she has been going through something but has not officially quit RHOA.

“It's been an especially difficult couple of weeks for Nene, and she was venting to her friend in private correspondence,” the rep said in a statement to E! News. "Nothing has been confirmed or officially decided for next season.”

NeNe responded to Wendy's juicy confession on her Instagram page, writing, “WHO SAID DAT!?!?! #SMH.”
