“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans watched Cynthia Bailey’s friendship with NeNe Leakes deteriorate right before their eyes and Cynthia recently explained when things started to go left for the former friends.
“I think it all started when NeNe went to Kenya [Moore]’s charity event, which I basically begged her to go to,” Cynthia explained to “New York Live.”
“She felt like I sided with Kenya when that whole thing went wrong…She didn’t like that not being on her side on that. She felt like I was against her. From there, it just spiraled down,” said Cynthia whose husband was very vocal about his negative feelings about NeNe’s behavior at the event.
Initially, it seemed like the former BFFs would be able to get past their issues rather quickly, but since then, things have fallen apart, and NeNe went so far as to imply that Cynthia adds nothing to the show and is expendable.
“When she’s against you, she will just take you out. She does not play,” said Cynthia who still considers herself a NeNe fan.
“I actually wish her well,” Cynthia told “Extra” correspondent AJ Calloway. “She just doesn’t wish me well. I’m glad she’s working. She just has a problem with me working.”
While Cynthia seemed willing to talk more about their problems during the reunion show, she said she and NeNe have not connected, much less reconciled.
“We are not cool to say the least. We’re not talking. That friendship has come to a complete halt, unfortunately,” said Cynthia who seems to be taking it all in stride. “I’m all about endings and new beginnings.”
