'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star NeNe Leakes is known to be involved in her fair share of disputes, on and off reality show cameras, but a recently ignited spat with television show host and media personality Wendy Williams is catching some serious attention. After Williams claimed that Leakes "ambushed" her with a Facetime phone call, it appeared that the two were engaged in some type of dispute, prompting Williams to call the reality star out on her internet-streamed talk show.

Williams explained the roots of the newfound issue with Leakes on her show saying that​ "On Friday evening I was in the house minding my own business … my phone rings shortly after 10 o’clock and it’s Nene… I said, 'Hi Nene, why are you screaming? Why are we on speakerphone, your house is big enough? What’re you doing?' She [NeNe] said, 'Girl.' I said, 'Yes Nene, why are you talking so loud?' She said, 'I’m here with all my people…'"

Williams then added, "You know I don’t have face or time for FaceTime, period. If I don’t do it for my own parents of the show, why would I be doing it for someone over there. I like NeNe, but she’s still an over-there person to me!"

This response prompted an outpouring of fan support to both women, picking sides over who was right in the still ​seemingly unclear situation. Leakes, initially, offered only a cryptic Instagram post as a response, a photo reading "Public disrespect and private apologies don't mix."

Now, it appears that the reality star is taking her own approach to addressing the situation with Williams, by seemingly not addressing it at all.

During a candid Instagram Live session following the dispute, fans were quick to pursue Leakes for information regarding her and Williams' feud, and the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star was having none of it, shutting down commentors left and right.

"If you’re going to ask me anything about Wendy, please refrain from doing so," she explained to fans tuned in to the video. "I will not answer any questions concerning Wendy."

"I will not answer any questions once again about Wendy, and for the third time, I will not answer any questions about Wendy. I’m not that kind of friend, I’ve never been that kind of friend despite what you might think," the reality star continued to say during the Instagram session.

"Any questions I may have I will send them to her, I wish she could’ve done the same. I’m always loyal, I will always be loyal. I’m not a snitch. I’ll never be one. I am not going to hash out a friendship over social media," she concluded.
