Nene Leakes And Wendy Williams Get Into It At A Women’s Expo In Atlanta

Posted on May 13, 2015



Follow me on Twitter @WilliamGMcCray and Instagram @SirWilliamGMcCrayIII to keep up on the latest!  NeNe Leakes confirmed on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen Sunday night that there was some unspecified drama involving Wendy Williams and her husband Kevin Hunter at the Atlanta Women’s Expo earlier in the day.

The two were scheduled speakers early in the afternoon at the Georgia World Congress Center back to back. Williams was set to go up first. Leakes told Cohen that something happened backstage with Williams’ husband while she was on stage speaking to the audience.

LALate reported that Leakes allegedly threw some “shade” toward Williams on stage and that may have set off Williams’ hubby. I was not there. I do not know. (I have to admit I was not sent any info about this expo and while I saw billboards about it, the entire event escaped my brain this weekend. Otherwise, I might have been tempted to check it out.)

UPDATE Tuesday May 5, 2015: The Daily Mail, using unnamed sources, provided some more insight into what Leakes said on stage that upset Kevin and led him to drag Wendy away from a book-signing early, forcing the organizers to refund some book purchases. It appeared Leakes and Williams never crossed paths directly. 

On her Twitter page, NeNe said she wasn’t directly involved:

Williams gave a shout out to the expo attendees at the start of her show today, seen on Fox 5 at 10 a.m., and also credited photographer FreddyO with a nice photo of her. (Check out FreddyO’s photo gallery here.) But she said nothing about NeNe.

His photo gallery does not show any interaction between NeNe and Wendy.

The expo featured Kim Zolciak,  Melissa Gilbert, Tamika “Tiny” Harris, Nancy Grace, Tabatha Coffey, Jasmine Guy and Stephanie Mills, among others.
