This week we witnessed the demise of one of reality tv's most enduring friendships: NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey. Find out what the ladies had to say about one another post-reunion inside...
If you watched the RHOA three-part reunion, you saw NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey end their friendship....and it was painful. As Cynthia cried and shared her soul...NeNe sat by unbothered and unmoved. And she posted receipts afterwards proving that Cynthia made her believe they had moved on as friends six months after the fact, and her current "hurt" feelings were just made for TV.
On social media, their responses were pretty much the same. Cynthia did an intervew with Bravo.com where she came to the conclusion that she didn't do anything wrong while NeNe wrote a blog saying she's happy their "tv friendship" is over.
Bravotv.com: What were the low points of the season for you?
Cynthia Bailey: Obviously, me and my best friend on the show, NeNe, we've been solid for four years now. And now that relationship is over. I'm looking forward to new beginnings. I've never gotten that close to the other girls on the show, and now that I'm not best buds with NeNe, some of the other ladies will be more open and I'll be more open to getting to know them.
Bravotv.com: Do you think you'll make up with NeNe?
Cynthia Bailey: I don't think so. I don't think I did anything wrong. That would mean she has to apologize and figure out a way to make it right. And she's not big on apologizing. That's not her favorite thing to do. I'm not going to hold my breath. I'm assuming it's done. That ship has sailed.
Bravotv.com: What's your happiest memory with NeNe that we've seen?
Cynthia Bailey: We had a lot of good times, too many to say. I loved being in her wedding, watching her and Gregg getting back together. Her wedding was so beautiful. That was a good time. There were a lot -- we've been through a lot. The lowest point was when she got sick. I've never seen her sick or scared or any of those things. That was the lowest point. But she was a trooper. It was a serious situation, and I was very concerned.....
I'm on my own. NeNe keeps trying to say I'm BFFs with Kenya, but I'm still getting to know her. Just because I'm not Team NeNe anymore doesn't mean I'm Team Kenya. I'm just not Team NeNe anymore. I've got to be ready for it. Because I know NeNe isn't going to make it easy for me. But I'm up for the challenge.
Look I am definitely a straight shooter with no chaser! I give it to you direct! No harm intended and I don’t apologize just for the sake of it! If I believe in something strongly I don’t see the need to! I tend to say what many are thinking and I just don’t practice lying! I am all about a good shade-throwing moment, but throwing fists as grown women is crazy to me!
Although I found this season to be draining, I actually learned a lot! I learned that TV friendships are just made for TV so thank God I have real friends! I learned that snakes are no longer in the grass, they are on TV and in designer clothing! I learned that no matter how successful I become, I will always have critics amongst this group of women! Lastly, I learned that what don’t kill ya will definitely make you stronger!
Remember the $20K challenge that Nene issued to Kenya Moore during the reunion, where Nene said she would put up $20K for Kenya's charity of choice (and Detroit's public schools were chosen)? Well...Kenya may not have taken Nene up on the offer OFF CAMERA because the Detroit Public Schools Foundation has not heard a word from either lady. Story. Maybe the check is in the mail...
