NeNe Leakes Says Cynthia Bailey Should Have Been Fired from RHOA a Long Time Ago

Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes were never able to save their friendship.

NeNe Leakes is a true OG of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” And over the years, she’s had plenty of drama on the show. Friendships were tested. And when it comes to the most notable friendship that fell apart to date, it’s the friendship between NeNe and Cynthia Bailey.

The women used to be close friends. However, they weren’t able to truly get past their last rift before NeNe’s departure. NeNe was convinced that Cynthia was in alliance with Kenya Moore and Kandi Burruss. She also believed they were the favorites of the producers. So when Kandi and Cynthia came together to bring Kenya back on the show, NeNe felt like Cynthia had betrayed her because she didn’t tell NeNe that a pregnant Kenya was attending her Seagrams event.

NeNe also felt as if Cynthia gave Kenya passes that she would never give to NeNe. Regardless, NeNe’s absence at Cynthia and Mike Hill’s wedding had a lot of fans talking on social media. These days, they still don’t really talk. And when Cynthia was asked why she feels Kenya is a much more loyal friend than NeNe, she said that Kenya has never tried to convince producers to fire her from RHOA.

Interestingly enough, NeNe had some interesting things to say about the show and Cynthia during a recent interview. And she said that Cynthia should have been gone.

    Cynthia does not need to be fired. Neither does Kenya. It’s Porsha who has brought the show all the way down to the gutter and that started after she decided to assault three people. Now she’s pursuing husbands of cast members and demanding said cast member be removed from the show and edits remain in her favor. RHOA is all about ratchet behavior now that they made Porsha the queen. Nene is just bitter Cynthia finally woke up and left their toxic friendship in the trash where it belongs.

    NeNe sounds so bitter. She’s accusing Kandi, Kenya, and Cynthia of being in an alliance and having so much clout with the producers, but only Porsha has the power to have scenes edited out that she knew would hurt her image. She’s also using her power to block Falynn from the show and getting her attacked in the media. NeNe herself never got that kind of preferential treatment from production and the media. Kenya was kicked off the show for getting married privately. NeNe was fired for leaving the reunion early, yet Porsha has fought three different people and has never been fired. And Porsha wanted to be the only one shown involved in activism when Kandi made so many great moves. Kandi and Cynthia aren’t the ones who tried to get NeNe fired, that was Porsha. Porsha is actually who NeNe thinks Kandi is but she’s too bitter to see the truth.

    NeNe is only saying this because she’s mad she’s not friends with Cynthia anymore. Anyway, Cynthia is not the problem. She’s classy and doesn’t create drama and keeps the show balanced. And she can read people down with class when she needs to. So I appreciate Cynthia more as I get older.

    I love NeNe but I wish she would stop this. Her anger with Cynthia makes no sense and she created a problem between them in her head. She should have been able to have great friendships with Kenya and Cynthia but she let her jealousy and ego get in the way. All three of them bring so much to RHOA. Cynthia is the classy and bubbly personality we need.

    I enjoyed the first few seasons of RHOA, I believe Nene is correct that Cynthia adds nothing to the show. Cynthia is passive aggressive and hides behind women who are more outspoken. I think Nene felt as though housewives was her baby and she took on the position to try and keep it thriving and moving in a certain direction. When she started bumping heads with production on the vision for the show and treatment from staff she was targeted as was Mariah. I don’t see class on this franchise sorry!

      Well said Denise! I agree Cynthia adds nothing…neither does Kandi IMHO. Different strokes for different folks I guess!

    I think there’s a section of this fanbase that thinks women only deserve to be on RHOA if they are ratchet and messy. If a black woman has the audacity to be on RHOA and not try to fight and be promiscuous, she’s “boring.” Cynthia is very interesting. She actually had a successful career before RHOA. She’s a successful businesswoman. She’s divorced and now happily remarried. She’s also funny and gets along with everyone. And if she was still friends with NeNe, NeNe wouldn’t be saying any of this. It’s nice to see that every black woman on this show isn’t ratchet and tacky. On NeNe’s way out she was assaulting cameramen and trying to spit on people. She has regressed when she used to fight for RHOA to have some class. Thank goodness Bravo kept Cynthia around so black women can be represented fairly. We’re not all out here acting like Porsha and the rest of the “nieces.” Yuck.

    I’m actually Team Cynthia now. And I say that proudly. NeNe had so much to say about RHOA being declassed but her little sis Porsha is the one who declassed RHOA. I am sick and tired of all the twerking, fighting, and now she’s out here sleeping with husbands openly. People ask what Cynthia brings to the show, well that’s easy, CLASS! There’s not much difference between RHOA and Love & Hip Hop at this point. I miss witty reads and genuine friendships. Cynthia isn’t the problem. And NeNe knows that.
