NeNe Leakes Talks Phaedra, Cynthia, and Chocolate
So what made NeNe join Team Phaedra? According to her latest Bravo blog, she says she’s not playing linebacker for Phaedra — in fact they aren’t even that close. But she simply couldn’t stand by and watch a woman go through what she herself has gone through and not reach out to make sure she’s okay:
Let’s be clear about a few things: Phaedra and I are not close! We’re not BFFs! One of the great things about NeNe Leakes is that I have a heart. Phaedra is a woman, and woman to woman I felt her pain! Hell, I had been there before! It doesn’t matter what it looks like on the street, you never know what a woman is going through behind closed doors, and I could clearly see Phaedra was going through something and she was in pain. She’s a mom with two young boys, and all I saw was myself, so I had to reach out. I wanted to give her advice on how to get through during tough times like these. Sometimes you just need somebody to talk to. Somebody to cry to. It’s always during times like these when you get to see the true colors of those that call themselves your friend!
She then went on to blast Cynthia for being petty and bringing up the Chocolate cheating rumor at the dinner table in front of everyone, saying it just goes to show her true colors:
When the info was brought up about the Phaedra cheating rumor from Miss I Don’t Have a Story Line, the first thought that came to mind was something my aunt told me last year after the reunion show. She said, “NeNe, you might be hurting now and she may have fooled some people for the moment, but the truth will surface. You sit back, be quiet, and her true colors will show up. People will see her for who she is!” You guys saw with your own eyes what Team Petty does week after week, so speak on it! Blow their a** up!
This is where I burst into my fake tears, because I have been called a whore and I’m innocent. #Girlbye #Weseeyou.
What do you think? Does she have a point? Does “Team Petty” deserve to be blown up for trying to stir up extra ish in Phaedra’s life when she already has so much going on?
