“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey‘s feud with NeNe Leakes is heating up because she seemingly threw shade at her co-star when she failed to acknowledge NeNe publically on her 52nd birthday. Cynthia is catching heat for wishing their co-star Tanya Sam, who happens to share the date with NeNe, a happy birthday but not Leakes, adding more fuel to their ongoing battle. Posting a photo with Tanya, Cynthia Bailey wished her a special day on her Instagram story on Friday.
In the photo, Cynthia and Tanya look like the best of friends while all dressed up for a parade. “Happy Birthday” she wished her co-star, but when it came to NeNe Leakes it was dead silence. The “RHOA” star didn’t post anything for Leakes, who she’s been friends with for years, prior to their fall out last season. It’s an interesting move considering Bravo fans have watched their friendship go up and down for several years. Most recently, NeNe dropped the bombshell that her friend allegedly recorded Cynthia talking behind her co-star’s back, but according to RadarOnline, that might be a lie.
NeNe Leakes may not have gotten a birthday wish from Cynthia Bailey, but she did get a ton of flak after posting a racy birthday photo that many are labeling as Photoshopped. Posing in black lingerie with a fluffy barely-there overcoat, the “RHOA” star captioned the sexy shot, “Sagittarius! One time for the Birthday Chick.” Fans replied with many saying they didn’t even recognize her. “Ummmmm who is that ? ???♀️?,” one fan wrote. “That don’t look like her she be getting so much surgery done she’s unnoticeable,” said another. “it’s just WAY TOO OBVIOUSLY PHOTOSHOPPED,” a third said about the photo.
The timing is bizarre for Cynthia to flat out ignore NeNe because in October she said they were on good terms. “I’m happy to say we’re in a better place [now]. We’re not in a great place. We’re not in the perfect place, but we are in a way better place by the time we get to the end of the season ,” she told Hollywood Life at the time. Their friendship still seemed to be intact on December 9th when NeNe told the outlet that she would go to Cynthia’s wedding with fiancé Mike Hill if she was invited.
