NeNe Leakes may be down a friend since finding out that her bestie Wendy Williams spilled the beans on their “private conversation”.Williams dropped a juicy piece of information on her show this week. She told fans about a private conversation she had with Leakes. During an interview with Jerry O’Connell, Williams broke the news that Leakes had texted her and told her she was quitting the “Real Housewives of Atlanta”. She received a text from Leakes that simply said, “I’m quitting.”

Williams went on to brag to the audience that she knew something that no one else knew and that it would really make us all “feel bad” for her. "I know something about NeNe that you all will cry, be sad, feel bad for her. She's carrying the weight of a huge thing on her shoulders." We certainly don’t know if making a choice to quit a reality TV show can be equated to having the world on your shoulders but… okay.

Fans of the Atlanta housewives know about the troubles that NeNe constantly has with her female friends. Her reactions are usually volatile and impulsive. Now, she is directing that impulsive reaction at Williams. Leakes did not initially say anything publicly when the talk show host blabbed about her quitting the show. Her publicist did make a comment reassuring the public that Leakes was just having a bad day and no decisions have been made about who is and is not returning to the show next season.

Leakes is now breaking her silence. She took to Twitter to vent about her disappointment in Williams. "Private conversations should be left in private!" tweeted Leakes. She continued with a short explanation as to what happened. "What are girlfriends for if you can't vent to them on those type of days." Leakes did not tag Williams in the post, nor did she make any more reference to the situation. Fans of the show know that Leakes has a hard time trusting woman and this situation threatens to hinder the women’s friendship.

Williams and Leakes have been friends for some time now. Leakes has made several appearances on the “Wendy Williams Show”. We can only assume they initially bonded over their expert way of reading people to absolute filth. Leakes is currently wrapping up filming on this season of RHOAwhere she appeared to be more friend of the show than full-time cast member. It could be very possible this is her last season. She has left in the past to pursue other ventures but was never outed like she was this time around. Williams may have just lost a girlfriend all because she wanted to be the first to break some news.
