NeNe Sets The Record Straight About Feud with Wendy Williams


Last week comedian Tom Arnold claimed he and NeNe Leakes lost a deal for a talk show after NeNe and Wendy got into a public fight over a Birkin bag [click here if you missed that]. 

NeNe sets the record straight and reveals it wasn't the Birkin that set Wendy off, it was NeNe referring to Wendy as "Wendell" that sank the deal...

While the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum tells Page Six exclusively that “there is truth” to the story the former “Roseanne” star told us, she insists there was an underlying implication that triggered her scathing blog post, which both she and Arnold believe cost them the gig.
“Wendy saw that I had defaced my Birkin bag, and yes, she posted a comment on her show’s social media page about it,” Leakes, 54, recalled.
“But that wasn’t the trigger. The trigger was what she said about it and me on her ‘Hot Topics’ [segment].”
Prefacing that she doesn’t remember Williams’ on-air comments “word for word,” Leakes alleged that the “Wendy Williams Show” host, 57, suggested she wasn’t wealthy enough to “deface” a purse that can cost upwards of $10,000.
“Kim Kardashian had done the same thing around the same time, ‘defaced’ her [Birkin] bag,” Leakes told us. “Wendy said Kim can do that because she had the money to do such a thing, but basically I didn’t.”
The reality star doesn’t necessarily feel it was her furious response to Williams – which in part read, “I am sure you’re scared I will take your place (I know you have heard! Ummhmm wink wink) BE SCARED!” – that set off the media personality.
“I responded by saying something like, ‘Now, Wendell, I have four Birkin bags, and I can do the same,’” Leakes recalled, noting that the name “Wendell” quickly went viral.
“Wendy didn’t like it,” she claimed, adding that she allegedly never heard from the production company again.
“Debmar-Mercury pulled the deal and stopped all communication with me. Our deal went dead.”

Well if they were working on a friendship of some sort why was she calling her that she gets enough from her enemies.

Wendy will always have more money than Nene cause she's college educated and knows how to keep her mouth closed about business.

Nene is the dumbest country bumpkin ever! Bitch how you think you're keeping a deal after referring to her as a man? I see Greg was truly your anchor all those years after he rescued you off the strip pole. Too bad he couldn't buy you some class and decorum. Basic azz bitch with no home training or social skills.

She can't get a Dubai deal because she's 54 years old.

I had a college friend who dropped out to become a paid escort. She was a mess. About 10 years later I ran into her she said she met her white husband when she was a stripper. This man had lived a life of excellence. He lost everything, his house, cars, the cars for his kids and his business in behind her dealing drugs with her drug dealer sidepiece who got killed. A hoe is a hoe and all about the show.

Nene always has an excuse for everything. Wendy's job was talking about people and she made a lot of money doing so.You had a chance to have a talk show but blew it clapping back at Wendy? No one wants to be bothered with Nene she's a liability.

NeNe is so fucking stupid. You called the woman Wendell and wonder why the deal was dead in the water? No one and I mean no one can be this dumb.
