Luenell Responds To NeNe Leakes’ Shade
Remember when we told you that NeNe Leakes clapped back at Luenell after the comedienne ranted about her and other reality stars delving into comedy?
“I just find it ironic that these days it seems like any reality show celebrity or celebrity of any type who wants to call themselves a comic can,” said Luenell. “I hope my sister here has a great weekend and a successful run….that is until she gets bored or tired.”
Well Luenell herself is responding and clapping back at NeNe’s “salty” shade. According to Luenell NeNe’s a “mean-spirited woman” and she’d prefer if they met face to face to hash out their issues like they do in her hometown of Oakland.
What do you think of Nene’s comment calling you an “old hater,” and that, “if you stop begin salty and get out of your feelings you might can start opening up for me.”
It’s mean and f*** up. It’s cruel and I’m not the grandmother around here, she is. We may be just a few years a part. My daughter is in college. She doesn’t have any children. I didn’t call her any names, she did, which evoked her fans to follow suit and call me names as well. I never called her any names. I wished her well.
But she’s made a career out of being mean to people. She’s a very mean-spirited woman. I don’t think that bullying is fashionable. But we live in a bullying society right now. Social media has made bullying cool because they can do it under the guise of anonymity.
The same people who grin in your face can go home and write the most veil stuff about you. I come from Oakland, California. I was born in Arkansas.
When we have confrontations about things, we deal with it face to face. I’m not trying to brawl with anybody in the streets, but I certainly won’t back down from a verbal confrontation.
I don’t clap back. I didn’t write anything about Nene. I stated exactly how I felt. She stated her truth and we were done with it. I didn’t go out and court these interviews. People have reached out to me. So, what she said to me I thought was uncalled for.
She also added that hopefully NeNe will have to work for her someday, and NOT the other way around. Furthermore NeNe lied when she told her to call her considering that they she doesn’t even have her number.
“I would love to say, ‘That’ll be the day’ that I have to come to Nene Leakes for work, but I know how this business is and a year from now, I very well may be auditioning for a part on a NeNe Leakes production. I would rather chew off my left arm but I’m not so stupid enough to pass up work, and if that’s work – whatever. She may be auditioning for me someday. I hope to God that happens.
But the fact that she said ‘call me,’ as if I have her number and can do that, that’s a lie and some bulls**t. We don’t call each other. We don’t know each other like that. So that was all just shade and being snarky, which is what she has made her whole brand of lifestyle about. You don’t get 26 years worth of fans being messy like that. I want to see where her fans are in 26 years. I know where mine will be, right where they are right now.
According to Luenell she has no regrets and people are idolizing “stir-fry” stars instead of ones who put in work.
I do not regret making the comment. I stand in my truth, but I want to just add this: people act like saying that I’m salty or jealous is a sin. If you work ten years at a company and some little yuppie comes in and in three weeks later they become your supervisor, you are salty about that.
Saying that out loud, I don’t see what’s so bad about that. Human beings have feelings. I simply sad what I feel and what a lot of people feel about what’s going on with these reality stars when it comes to taking jobs from viable actors these days. What I do have anguish about is, maybe I presented it in personal way. It really isn’t personal against Nene. it was personal against the industry that she promotes and is a part of.
People are idolizing these quick, stir-fry, flash in the pan people who are not the people who have put in the work. It’s all about who is on TV right now and whose got the most Instagram followers. Anybody can get money. I don’t knock anyone’s grind. But when you step into my lane, and you’re coming into the area where I live, I feel like I have the right to say whatever I want to about it. I did it. I don’t regret it. I’ll do it again.
What do YOU think about Luenell’s NeNe Leakes comments???
Hit the flip to see what Luenell has to say about people calling her a hypocrite because she worked with Wendy Williams and Claudia Jordan.
On working with Wendy Williams and Claudia Jordan:
We’re both wrong. I didn’t realize that she wasn’t actually doing stand-up. She’s doing a one-woman show and in my field, one-woman shows are mounted usually in a theater setting, not in a stand-up club. If you’re taking the stand-up stage in the stand-up club, you’re insinuating that you’re doing stand-up comedy. And when she says, ‘You had no problem helping Wendy,’ or Claudia or anybody else, I was asked to help Wendy and I considered that an honor. Out of all the people that Wendy knows, for her to ask me, I thought it was an honor. But then it started to be thing.
It went from Wendy to Claudia. From Claudia to Reza of “Shahs of Sunset,” and I’m not one to turn down any television opportunities. To be considered the go-to person when it comes to comedy, that’s not a bad thing either. But to say that I had no problem with it, she doesn’t know that, no body knows what I felt like when I was doing what I was doing. Cause in fact, I did have some problems with that.
I have a problem with people stepping in the lane of comedy because I feel very seriously about that. It’s not just a job to me. It’s a religion to me. It’s therapy to me. Wendy paid very well. I thought it was a very iconic thing to do. I enjoyed the experience.
Meanwhile NeNe is still throwing shade at Luenell.
“When you secure in what you do, supporting someone else is easy to me,” said NeNe on her Instagram.
