Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Nene Leakes had admitted that her friendship with Cynthia Bailey is basically over, but she still expected the model to perform friend duties after the passing of her husband Gregg Leakes.
The OG former housewife star appeared on local radio station V-103 to share that she is disappointed in Bailey and her lack of compassion.
Wasn’t Up To Nene’s Standards
“She didn’t even come to the repast,” pointed out Leakes. “She did come like a week later after everything was done,” she continued, clearly bothered. However, when Bailey did show up, Leakes seemed confused.
“She came by my lounge, it’s really hard to explain ‘Housewives.’ It’s almost like a dysfunctional family,” noted Leakes who was on the show for ten seasons and a “friend” role for one season. She is responsible for bringing Bailey to the popular series.

Cynthia Sent Love BTW
Listening to Leakes, one would assume that Bailey didn’t reach out at all but, she actually did. The Bailey Wine Cellar owner admitted that she did not get to go to the repast as her former friend claimed but she was “glad” she missed it.
“I’m really glad, honestly looking back, that I didn’t make it to the actual celebration because I think if I had, I never would have had the moment that I got to have with her just hanging out with her at her lounge.”
To Bailey, it felt like old times “pretty much closing the place down like we really got to spend some one-on-one time together.” The women ended on rocky terms and since then have drifted apart but at no fault to Bailey who fans painfully watched beg for Leakes’ attention season after season.
Nene Is Hurting
Thankfully, she knows Leakes enough to understand that the queen bee may be lashing out because let’s face it, she is hurting. Her husband of over 20 years has passed on. Plus, Bailey isn’t the only Atlanta housewife she has lashed out at.
She received a flower arrangement that she deemed unfit for the “wealthy” women sending it. I was surprised because the first set of flowers I got was a bouquet from like all the Housewives like they went in together,” she shared.
Pointing out that they can afford separate checks. “I’m like, ‘Why do y’all need to go in together and buy some damn flowers? If all y’all work … you can spend your own $200,’” noting that, “that’s the way I’ve always been.”
We Miss Gregg
Fans are sympathizing with Leakes because they too miss the larger-than-life presence. When Leakes left the show, cast members joked that they would keep Gregg. He always kept Nene in her place, respectfully, of course. After his passing from colon cancer in September, Leakes took the opportunity to thank everyone for supporting her at the time.
She also shared the sentimental last conversations she and her husband had. “‘I’m not going to leave you. God is going to bless you,’” she shared in an interview with People. “He said he wanted me to move on with my life.”
Sounds like something Gregg would wish for, for Nene. Bailey is yet to comment on Leakes accusations
