Where do Nene Leakes and Wendy Williams stand after Leakes called out Williams for claiming she was quitting The Real Housewives of Atlanta earlier this month?

While Leakes did not appear to be too happy to learn that Williams had gone public with a private text message she sent to her about her alleged decision to quit the Bravo reality show, Williams confirmed on her talk show this week that she and Leakes were still friends, despite the drama.

According to a report shared by Hollywood Life on January 28, Williams addressed their current relationship during the Hot Topics segment of The Wendy Williams Show.

“Just incase you’re still wondering, NeNe and I still cool, ok,” Williams told viewers during her show.

Williams then went on to address Vicki Gunvalson's recent exit from The Real Housewives of Orange County cast, as well as that of Tamra Judge, who announced her own departure from the series just one day after Gunvalson left the show.

As she explained, she had not yet discussed the issue with Leakes because she had only recently heard about the news.

During the January 21 episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Williams said that her longtime friend, Leakes, had a “big secret” to share before announcing that she had been informed by Leakes that she was quitting The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

“I looked at my phone in between commercials and NeNe texted, ‘I’m quitting [RHOA],’ at 9:08 this morning,” Williams revealed to her guest, comedian Jerry O’Connell.

She then suggested there was more to the story but said she wouldn't reveal what it was that Leakes was supposedly hiding from fans.

“I’ve got to say something, but I’m not going to say a whole lot,” Williams stated. “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.”

Williams then said that when it came to the "big secret" Leakes was allegedly hiding, it was something that would melt the hearts of her many fans and followers who've followed her over the past several years.

She even said that she cried when Leakes opened up about the issue to her.

After the episode of Williams' talk show aired, Leakes shared a post on Instagram with a comment that read, “WHO SAID DAT!?!?! #SMH.”

A short time later, Leakes appeared to diss Williams in a Twitter post.

“Private conversations should be left in private! What are girlfriends for if you can’t vent to them on those type of days,” Leakes wrote.

Leakes has not yet confirmed whether or not she will be involved in the upcoming 13th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
