After initially agreeing not to say anything, Kandi Burruss‘ tea that Porsha Williams‘ man has gotten other girlfriend’s names tattooed on him leaked. It has since resulted in a public spat between Williams and Nene Leakes that caused Tamar Braxton to weigh in.
On “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Sunday, Cynthia Bailey, Williams, Burruss and Leakes all gathered for a wine tasting when Burruss said that Leakes must have shared her gossip about Dennis McKinley. On screen, Williams said she didn’t say Leakes was the culprit and during a confessional, Leakes denied saying anything.
“‘I think she didn’t tell you because she was worried how you’d react,'” Williams recalled in her confessional of what Leakes apparently said to her.
“I didn’t even think it was conversation-worthy, really,” Williams said at the tasting. “I’m happy about him, and I was excited he got the tattoo.”
But that wasn’t the end of things. After the show aired Dec. 2, Leakes took to Instagram and put Williams, with whom she’s had a sisterly relationship, on blast.
“When you a ride or die chick!!!! Hey lil sis, i got your back! Lil sis: yeah ok! Then throws big sis under the bus! What the F—… #loyalty #dontbitethehandthatfeedsyou I’m out… #beloyaltosomebody.”
“So you text me and ask me a question then make an assumption. Now come on social media and blast me! B—- you got me twisted. #FakeAsHell #CutTheCrap,” Williams hit back.
Fans immediately weighed in wondering about the state of the co-stars’ relationship.
“Dang! So the door closed AGAIN!!😲 Already??!!”
“It’s not that serious. If she’s you’re a ride or die chick and you’re hers .. Ride it out. Nowadays people too quick to jump on social media instead of talking about it in person #CmonNeNe🙏🏾.”
“Y’all friends and just need to get over it period.”
Even Leakes’ pal and fellow reality TV star Braxton weighed in, pleading with the women to put their difference aside and maintain their friendship.
“@neneleakes @porsha4real 🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️ guys!! Please!! Trust me!! Don’t let this STUPID reality show come between your friendship/sisterhood TRUST me!! I’m the STUPID one!! I’ve made sooo many mistakes!! Please!! PLEASE!! Call each other now!! Or STOP watching. I can only pass it on 🙏🏾😢”
Even still, Williams and Leakes continued to trade barbs on social media.
“@porsha4real girl u stay f—ing people over! Um PHAEDRA! Street code 101, don’t bite the hand that feeds you,” Leakes said on Instagram.
“Nene knows that was editing! Everyone can see that was the last part of a sentence asked waay after the lunch even took place! They added it to make it seem like I confessed who told me. I never said Nene told me what Kandi said. I only said why nene felt it may be kept from me!” Williams later tweeted.
Meanwhile, Leakes responded to some fans who asked about her relationship with Williams.
“@natoami nawwww! I’m not mad! I’m just smarter now.”
“Did u say c’mon Nene! I text Porsha and asked her at 11 a.m. this morning! She never got back to me until she saw this post. Why? Because she doesn’t care about friendship. She throws EVERYBODY under the bus.”
