Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes’ friendship imploded on Sunday night's part two of the Season 6 reunion of The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast ... or did it?
As you saw if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, Bailey said Leakes was inappropriate for calling her husband Peter Thomas "a damn b!tch."
However, in a bid to expose Bailey, Leakes posted this alleged text message, in which the ladies discuss calling each other’s husbands “b!tches.”
Leakes quickly deleted the text, but not before Radar posted it:
In the text message, which Leakes claims was sent one day prior to the reunion, Bailey acknowledged that the pair had discussed their "beef" beforehand:
“Change of plans for the scene. Not going to do the b!tch thing with Gregg. I thought it would be funny, but I really don’t want to call him out… even as a joke”
The text continues, “[I] think we should have real grown folk conversation, address our concerns as friends, apologize, hug it out and have cocktails.”
NeNe captioned the text: “Did u forget u sent me this text after Mexico, the morning before Gregg and I shot the scene with u and Peter. Don’t play dumb friend!”
The alleged text implies that Bailey was aware the explicit exchange would happen, and that The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion beef was scripted ...
During the second part of the reunion Sunday, NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey feud was explored further, as old wounds were (supposedly) opened up.
“When it comes to NeNe, I have been extremely loyal, to the point where people think I live up NeNe’s a$$,” Bailey said of her co-star, who she says is shady.
However, “We haven’t really talked, two or three weeks now.”
NeNe responded, “I’m not sure where that is coming from.”
Bailey added wearily, as though pained, “I love her… I miss NeNe, but I’ll be okay. Unfortunately, sometimes you just come to the end of the road with people.”
Or at least script it to that effect. Bravo, ladies. BRAVO.
See what we did there?!
