NeNe Leakes, the last original “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member who still has a full-time spot on the series, has some thoughts on the show’s two most recent departures: Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield.
While NeNe seems to have gotten over the season 3 argument that seemingly ended her friendship with Kim Zolciak, she’s still throwing verbal jabs at Sheree.
“I did bump into Sheree not long ago,” NeNe told “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen.
NeNe and Sheree were attending a funeral and rather than spark up a conversation that could have turned into a confrontation, NeNe said she didn’t bother to speak to her former co-star.
However, she did speak on the progress of Chateau Sheree, a home the aspiring designer has had under construction for more than a year now.
“The time I saw it, it was up looking like a box. I’m not sure she’s going to be moving in it,” said NeNe who once referred to the residence as “Neverland.”
As for her former BFF, Kim, who will still be a part of the show’s fifth season, NeNe said she’s moved on from that drama.
“I wish her nothing but the best, and I don’t hold a grudge, but I have moved on,” said NeNe who was originally supposed to record Kim’s hit “Tardy for the Party” with her.
Kim later decided to record the song by herself and that was just one thing that caused tension between the former friends. However, NeNe might be following in Kim’s footsteps and laying some tracks herself.
“I still sing. I don’t know if I’m going to sing on ‘Glee’ or the ‘New Normal,’ but hopefully… I might even sing on ‘Housewives.’ I was kinda reluctant to sing on the ‘Housewives’ because there are so many Housewives singing that can’t really sing. I didn’t want to get out there and sing and not be taken seriously,” she said.”
Members of the ‘Housewives’ franchise—both past and present—have had varied degrees of success in the music industry, but if NeNe’s track record is any indication, she’ll top the music charts in no time.
“Good things happen to good people,” she said on VH1’s ”Big Morning Buzz” earlier this week. “When you are a good person, good things happen for you. That’s why I’m the last one standing.”
