NeNe Leakes Sounds Off On Other 'Real Housewives'
NeNe Leakes Sounds Off On Other 'Real Housewives'

On Sunday evening, Andy Cohen hosted a special Watch What Happens Live: NeNe One-On-One for what basically amounted to a gab-fest with Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. And as usual, she had plenty to say not only about her own castmates, but also about the other women in the Real Housewives franchise.

First, when Andy asked NeNe what she was referring to at the reunion show about recasting her own show, she admitted that she was talking about co-star Porsha Stewart.

"I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something -- and I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough."


NeNe then went on to talk about the ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, specifically Brandi Glanville, whom she called a "train wreck."

"She's just a wreck. Just a wreck," NeNe said. "She's just off the chain, she's off the hook with a lot of the things that she has to say, just so talkative. [There's] a lot of stuff that she needs to not say. She's going to get read. She thinks she can get in people's faces and say whatever she wants to say."

Apparently, Brandi, who was tuning in to WWHL that evening, had a little to say to NeNe herself.

"It's a little scary when peeps start to believe their own hype and drink their own Kool-Aid taking responsibility for everyone's success," Brandi tweeted.

But NeNe didn't stop there. Next, NeNe took on the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

"I don't connect with them, most of them, for some reason. I almost want to recast Orange County. A couple of them are quite boring and can go."

She did say, however, that there's one RHOC lady she can relate to.

"Vicki is the boss, Ramona [Singer of RHONYC] is the boss, I'm the boss. All of us are original housewives and we have a work ethic that is very different than the new girls that come on the show. All of us work our asses off."

Because of this veterans vs. newbies mentality, NeNe says she really empathizes with what Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is dealing with, especially because the newer housewives on her show are related to her.

"I feel for Teresa because there's something about being the first one in. When you're the first one in on one of these shows and somebody comes behind you, it's sort of like, 'Hold on, you need to respect the veteran. I was here first. You need to play on my territory.' So I kind of sided with Teresa in that area. Melissa [Gorga], you came on her show. So you watched her on television and you wanted to be on the show like she was. No, girl, take a seat now! You're not a veteran."


Other than her issue with Melissa, NeNe was actually complimentary of RHONJ.

"I like Jersey," she said. "I just think they're such gangstas. I just love them. They're so entertaining to me. But you know what? They're getting a little too nasty."

Too nasty for NeNe Leakes? And you didn't think it was possible.
