Did you hear about NeNe Leakes visit to ‘The View’ last month? It turned into a very uncomfortable visit when NeNe clashed with the co-hosts. The former ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star opened up about her experience when she appeared on Andy Cohen’s show, ‘Watch What Happens Live.’
Joy Behar wasn’t shy about needling NeNe, from pointing out that her jewelry had scratched her shoulder as they all walked out to asking NeNe why she divorced Gregg Leakes only to remarry him and then joking that NeNe was “very modest” when NeNe claimed some housewives were trying to “imitate the NeNe Leakes brand.” Then, when NeNe showed pictures of her new home, Joy wondered why she didn’t show any pictures of the house furnished.
After her appearance, NeNe tweeted:
Just sat with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don’t belong. The HATE was so real & SAD.”
However, she later deleted the tweet. So of course Andy asked her about what happened on ‘The View.’
Oh, yes, honey. Let’s read The View. What do you need to know? Tell me all about it. Well, I didn’t see any of those ladies that’s on the panel until I actually walked on the panel. And I felt like they were not kind to me. I just…honestly, they weren’t kind. It’s not even ‘felt like.'”
Andy asked if it was just Joy or if other co-hosts were unfriendly as well. NeNe admitted Joy wasn’t the only co-host who was rude.
It was more than Joy. Now, Joy was definitely throwing a lot of shade, but there was someone else on the panel that threw shade as well, as far as looking me up and down. Now, we were live, so as far as what the cameras shot or showed, I don’t know. It didn’t show everything. But I could tell you that there were a couple of people on that panel who were very shady. Now, they welcomed me to their home—”
You’re talking about Raven-Symoné.”
First NeNe said “probably” and then admitted that Raven-Symone was “looking her up and down, real nasty-like.”
I didn’t like that, because look, first of all, I was invited to their show. I was there to promote Chicago and other things. They asked me to bring pictures of my home there, and I brought the pictures they asked me to bring. And they just weren’t kind. They did not have nice manners. I know all of them are tired: their hairstyles are tired, their makeup is tired. Whatever.”
Well, NeNe’s appearance certainly got a lot of attention last month. That’s the main goal of any public appearance: press, right? Check out NeNe talking about the experience with Andy below.
