Round two! NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks went at it again yesterday on "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show."
Apparently, the two reality stars had more to discuss than how long they have actually known each other. Wednesday morning, NeNe called "Rickey" to clarify some things she’d said about Star Jones and Phaedra.
Once Rickey put NeNe on the air, she stated that Star was the first to get catty on the set of "The Celebrity Apprentice." "She was throwing me shade the day I walked in my trailer," NeNe claimed. "She sabotaged me getting hair and makeup. That I would never do to another castmate."
NeNe added, "Star is [messed] up. Star argued with me, LaToya Jackson, Meat Loaf, Lisa Rinna. Star is a disaster.”
And NeNe really wasn’t impressed with Phaedra’s career credentials or her background riding horses. According to NeNe, there’s no way her pint-sized "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-star could possibly have been an equestrian because people in the ghetto just don’t do those sorts of things. She also hinted that Phaedra joining the cast of the Bravo show could mean that she may not be doing as well as she would like people to believe.
"You are sitting on the same show I’m sitting on, so your attorney work must not be working out for you. And as far as her being an equestrian, I don’t know that for sure. But she was raised in the projects of Athens and they didn’t ride horses," NeNe said. "And I don’t care if she went to school for 20 years, you end up on the same show I am on. And I do more than you do and make more money than you, so what’s next?"
You’ll never believe what else she had to say about her "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-star in the clip posted below.
Rickey’s crew thought it was only fair that Phaedra get a chance to speak for herself, so they called her up on-air.
"If you didn’t even know me, then how do you know where I lived?" Phaedra asked NeNe, who called out the attorney’s alleged old neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. "You don’t even remember the people from high school. So how would you remember me?"
Those who saw the first half of the "RHOA" reunion know NeNe and Phaedra disagreed about how well they actually knew each before the show. Yesterday, however, Phaedra just seemed over it, but she did call NeNe out on not claiming her home state.
"From what I understand, you say you’re from New York, but you’ve been in Athens since you were 3 years old," she said. "It’s not amazing to me that you would forget, so I don’t have time to argue with you about these trivial things."
"However," she continued, "most of the things you’ve said about me have been untrue."
What did NeNe have to say about that? Find out when you listen to the second half of the radio rumble below.
