Following Wendy Williams’ comments about her, NeNe Leakes took to Instagram Live to have a Q & A session with her followers. However, before the Q & A began, Leakes announced that she would not answer any questions concerning Williams.
“I am not that kind of friend. I’ve never been that kind of friend despite what you might think. Any questions you have I would direct them to her. I wish she would have done the same. I’m always loyal. I will always be loyal. I am not a snitch. I will never be one. I’m not going to hash out a friendship over social media,” stated Leakes on Instagram Live.
Over the weekend, Leakes was scheduled to me on Instagram Live with “RHOA” co-star Kim Zolciak, however, the chat had to be rescheduled. Regardless, Leakes went live to chat with her fans anyway.
During the Instagram Live, Leakes decided to call Willams and surprise her. The call did not go well. Reportedly, Williams hung up on Leakes during the call.
Apparently, during a recent episode of “RHOA” Williams made a personal appearance while she was on speakerphone with Leakes.
Williams did not appreciate the surprise call from Leakes. On Monday, April 6, 2020, Williams talked about the incident on her show and she expressed her “displeasure” with Leakes, according to The Blast.
Williams said: “You know I don’t have face or time for FaceTime, period. If I don’t do it for my own parents…why would I be doing it for someone over there. I like NeNe, but she’s still an over-there person to me! Honestly, here’s where the ambush comes in. She said, “Wendy, look’ — she was in hair and makeup and wardrobe will all her people — She said, ‘We filming and I want you to be on the speaker.’ I said, ‘NeNe, I did that for you one time.’ Remember my appearance? One time”
Williams made it clear that she is not a housewife. Her career is “a bit…different than being a Housewife.” She claimed that she did not need that kind of attention and she was not “slumming” by being an add-on for some Housewife.
Williams has not spoken to Leakes since the incident.
“The Wendy Williams Show” will be broadcasting from her New York apartment. The last episode aired on March 12. The show returned on Monday, April 6 for 20 minutes, which is normally how long the Hot Topics segment lasts.
The 20-minute broadcast featured chirping from Williams’ broken smoke detector.
