It’s not the first dust-up between Cynthia Bailey and her on-again, off-again bestie Nene Leakes, and it surely won’t be the last.
On Wednesday, Bailey refused to shade her friend Leakes while out at WE tv’s Bridezillas event in New York City, even though Leakes threw some verbal jabs at her after the filming of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion last week, Page Six reports.
“Cynthia has done a lot of stuff, in my opinion, on the down low, very sneaky and underhanded,” Leakes said in an Instagram Live video rant while appearing to wear Bailey’s “Cynthia Crystal Brown” sunglasses.
The former model turned reality star took the high road saying she will “always love and support” Leakes.
“I’ve always been a friend to her, and if she’s really my girl like she’s claimed to be my girl then we could get past this,” Bailey said. “But I noticed she was wearing my eyewear, though, so I need to tag Cynthia Bailey eyewear. I appreciate that. It’s good when we support each other even when we’re mad at each other.”
But Leakes warned RHOA fans that their relationship would be different going forward.
“I don’t have no hate in my heart for Cynthia. We are co-workers from this day forward. I don’t have any reason to not speak to her … but anything else further than that it’s not going to happen.”
The Real Housewives reunion, Bailey said, was per usual was pretty fiery.
“It just got a little bit tricky for me, but I just own my truth, and said what I had to say. But it’s going to be a good reunion. I’ll tell you that.”
Tune into the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 11 reunion on March 24 at 8/7 p.m. on Bravo.
