NeNe Leakes has never been one to back down from a fight, but there’s a first time for everything. After attending an event at co-star Cynthia Bailey’s business on the last episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, things got out of hand (naturally), and NeNe ultimately had to make the difficult decision to be the bigger person and walk away because she attended the event with her son, according to Porsha Williams.
On Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey was hosting the “Bailey Bowl” a get-together for all the Housewives and their families where everyone could partake in some good ol’ fashioned fun with events like three-legged races and egg tosses. Of course, you know even the most innocent of activities are bound to take a turn for the worse when all the Housewives get together, and the Bailey Bowl was no exception.
It all started when NeNe Leakes’ ex-bestie Marlo Hampton showed up, and things immediately got tense between the women. If you recall, Marlo and NeNe used to be thisclose, but after a falling out, Marlo is now besties with Kenya Moore – who also happens to be public enemy number one in NeNe’s eyes.
Back at the Bowl, Marlo played for Kenya’s team, Team Twirl, while NeNe headed up Team Rich. “I’m gonna beat your butts,” Marlo taunted Team Rich. Those words may have sounded pretty harmless, but they obviously annoyed NeNe and and ultimately set into motion yet another Housewife brawl.
During one of the events, Marlo got a little too close for comfort for NeNe, prompting the veteran Housewife to shout, “Get the f**k off me! Don’t try to grab me!” Then, NeNe tossed a water bottle at Marlo, and that’s when the chaos really began. “B—-, you’re stupid,” Marlo screamed at her nemesis. “You are insecure … Tell the whole ATL why you’re not talking to me? ‘Cause I’m Kenya’s friend?”
Of course, all the viewers at home were ready to start sounding off on Twitter about what was sure to be an epic throwdown, but NeNe – for once – decided to keep evil twin NayNay at bay opting instead to simply walk away. Okay, who else was stunned by this?!
While NeNe headed off the playing field to cool down, Marlo continued to scream after her. “”You don’t know what a friend is!” she yelled. “You have to kiss her ass to be her friend. You that insecure?” NeNe, however, refused to take the bait and ignored her ex-friend. “I’m not speaking to her all,” she told the cameras.
After the episode aired, Porsha Williams stopped by Watch What Happens Live and explained that NeNe kept her cool because her son, Brent, was there with her, despite not being seen on camera. Props to NeNe for keeping her cool in front of her son.
