The Feud Continues As NeNe Leakes Calls The View Hosts 'Unfriendly' & 'Unfair' — Are You #TeamNeNe Or #TeamView??
We think we're on NeNe's side on this one.
While Thursday's episode saw Joy Behar, Michelle Collins, and Paula Faris get in some trouble for their jokes about eating disorders, their more prolific scandal actually happened during Wednesday's taping.
Well, we could tell that the segment was extremely awkward due to Whoopi Goldberg and Joy constantly judging the Reality TV star, but in a recent interview with E! News, NeNe actually doubled down on her original Twitter statement, saying:
"I saw the eye rolls. I felt the eye rolls. I was there. I don't know how much was seen on camera, but all the eye rolls and the looking you up and down, that kind of thing. I just think it's really unfair, and it's so unnecessary.
I just felt like, honestly speaking, if you invite me to your house, have some manners and treat me nice. That's all I'm saying. I just felt those girls weren't friendly."
Yikes…. but it really was that uncomfortable to watch.
However, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta staple did add that she understands why they were rude, saying:
"People sometimes think that you are something that you are not just by watching you on reality TV, and I get it.
Reality TV makes people believe or think something of you that may not necessarily be true. So sometimes when you enter a room, people are thinking, or they already have their guards up or boxing gloves on thinking that you're going to enter with some sort of air or attitude or something."
While it may be true that the panelists considered themselves "better" than reality television, they apparently weren't above it enough to stay professional.
Ch-ch-check out the interview in question and decide if you're #TeamNeNe or #TeamView (below)!!!
