Williams and Leakes have been sparring online after Sunday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” The Dec. 2 show saw Kandi Burruss confronting Leakes after the singer told her, Cynthia Bailey, and Marlo Hampton that she heard Williams’ then-boyfriend Dennis McKinley has the names of his former girlfriend’s tattooed on him.
Trouble began when Leakes was accused of telling Williams the gossip, which the women had separately confirmed they would keep hush-hush. But Leakes felt she was thrown “under the bus” and she and Williams began arguing online.
“This is somebody who’s mad about something else going on in her life and taking it out on me,” Williams says on “Dish Nation” Monday, Dec. 3, agreeing that it was a scapegoat situation. “I can’t explain what seems crazy to me. I still never said that Nene is the one who told me so I don’t really know.”
Williams added that she had been texting her co-star Sunday morning but she was out viewing homes with McKinley all day and didn’t respond until later. By the time she replied, someone sent Williams Leakes’ Instagram post.
“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,” read a caption of a photo of the pair that Leakes posted and later deleted.
“How you gon’ blast me on Instagram while we’re texting?” Williams says. “Like, we’re in the middle of texting each other. … I normally do not get into social media battles, but pregnant Porsha got time.”
Leakes has been lashing out on social media lately. She blasted husband Greg for being “mean and grouchy.” On Nov 29, she commented on his IG post saying, “you need to do everything you posted! Practice what you preach” and added in another comment, “you need to pray for yourself! This mean, grouchy, evil stuff u pulling these days are NOT cool.”
The remarks were later deleted but she took to Twitter to ponder about her situation further.
“I would just think if I have or had cancer, I would see life so differently! Not be mean, grouchy and evil for no real reason! But that’s me. Pray for me,” she said.
Fans responded to the clip with their own thoughts online.
“Awwww, I was hoping Porsha wouldn’t be the go to drama queen. Nene, ‘YOU SAID WHAT YOU SAID,’ don’t me mad 😤 that Porsha repeated it.😎😎😤”
“They need ratings & Nene is going thru menopause.”
“This is just so absolutely stupid.”
