Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes: The Claws are Already Out

at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres on Bravo tonight.

But two of the show's stars are already involved in a heated exchanged of words as veteran cast member NeNe Leakes says she doesn't get along with newbie Kandi Burruss.

“I did not know her before the show and I still don’t know her now,” Leakes said. “I think she was hearing negativity from somewhere else because she does not know me well enough to treat me the way that she does. But, it’s okay. I find that women who are very weak cannot stand up to a strong woman like me.”

Leakes was responding to Kandi's assertion that the former "called me ghetto at one point. She has a lot of nerve. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?”

Burruss added:

“Her mouth is just way too much. I cannot take the loud talking and the waving of the finger in your face. If you do that to me, I am ready to go after you.”

Nene, eventually Bravo fans saw your true spirit come out progressively through the show. You tried to blame the Bravo show editors for making you look like a villain. No Nene - the fact is Bravo fans saw what you truly are = a Lumpy Moose who is a Rotten Atlanta Peach to the core! Regarding assault: Kim including anyone who is has been physically assaulted by you should have had you arrested. You are a hypocrite, you were a victim of violence yet were and are are violent toward others, verbally and physically. You are a poor representative of victims, even though Twisted Hearts and the Heel the Soul- Stiletto Woman is rooted in good intentions, you tarnish it all due to your violent bulling behavior on the the show. Bravo executives, please kick her ugly ass mooseface off the show! Nene in negotiations with her own show = disgusting!


Nene is cock-eyed loud in sound and clothes and an embarrasment to ATL she's from Athens anyway you can't get any more country than that NEne grow up and stop hating furnish your house with all that energy u spend on hating on others


I'm commenting the situation between Kandi & Nene my thing is that some people need to just grow and stop judging people before they get to know them. My true feeling towards the matter is that Nene needs to stop hating on others out there calling people ghetto and who is more ghetto than she is , she is loud, and I feel she always want be seen, that's why she do what she do just to be seen, anyways this my cooment to her who cares.
