Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey geared up to visit CBS’s “The Talk” Tuesday and as they did, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars made time to snap a quick photo together. But while fans praised Bailey’s look, they tore into Leakes’ for her’s.
“Ms Bailey you are a goddess and you are just as beautiful on the inside. And then there’s Nene. *side eye*”
“Child #neneleakes out here looking like #Melbamoore #youshouldakeptyourrealface #offtoseethewizard #todowearenotinkansasanymore lookin self😩😂 But you #richb—- so I’ll just giggle from afar.”
“Nene is slowly looking like Kim🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣”
“Omg nene looks horrible geez what happen is she ok?”
“I almost thought Nene was Shawn or marlon W. in white chicks!! 😂😂😂”
“Cynthia. U look amazing! Can’t say the same for your backstabbing so-called friend… She seems to be trying to look like Kim Z.”
But wasn’t all negative for Leakes. Some praised her and the model equally.
“@cynthiabailey10 Simply beautiful the both of you @neneleakes ✔️”
“Y’all cuteeeeee ❤️🖤”
“Gorg!!!! Loving these looks ladies ❤️❤️”
“2 beautiful blonde bombshells and it just so happens that you are also 2 of my 3 favorite housewives @cynthiabailey10 and @neneleakes (shout out to my other girl @kandi 😁). Omg I’m SO GLAD you ladies are back! I’ve been having #rhoa withdrawal! Also keeping Gregg and the Leakes family in my prayers. 🙏🏾💜 u ladies!”
“Freaking flawless @cynthiabailey10 @neneleakes.”
Leakes has battled countless accusations about her appearance over the years, especially those concerning rumors about bleaching her skin.
On an Instagram photo Leakes uploaded in July, she caught the attention of a fan wondering if she manipulated her skin tone.
“Love blonde hair on NeNe but her skin is remarkably lighter than when she first appeared on TV. What is it about brown women becoming famous that makes them bleach their skin??? Her, Tamar, and others seem to be okay with being Black as long as they are light enough…has America convinced us dark Black women cannot be successful???”
“@darraghgrier you need help! I’ll be praying for you because your eyes ain’t working fo ya,” Leakes fired back.
