Michael Skupin is ready to talk.

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:
Now this is how you throw shade.
And while at first we thought it was a tad odd that Joy Behar refrained from getting in on the social media fun… upon further investigation, the really shady thing about this pic is that NeNe straight up cropped Raven out of the frame!
The Disney Channel star and the Bravolebrity seemed pretty cordial during the ABC segment, but clearly something must have happened to get Raven the photoshop treatment.
Take a look at NeNe's Raven-less pic alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Paula Faris, and Candace Cameron Bure to see the difference (below)!!!
Now that's some serious shade!
On a post the Real Housewives of Atlanta star later deleted, she wrote:
"Just sat down with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don't belong."
Tell us how you really feel, girl! LOLz!
We have a feeling the Atlanta diva had problems with Joy Behar in particular — as the daytime TV host not only made fun of the weight of NeNe's jewelry but also wanted to get into the 47-year-old's inneresting relationship with her husband, Gregg.
In case you forgot, Miz Leakes divorced and remarried her husband on her popular Bravo show. Nonetheless, it appears that the starlet had no interest in talking about her love life.
Everything's coming up Housewives!
Andy Cohen & Co. dropped the Season 8 intro for Real Housewives of Atlanta on Tuesday night, and it's absolutely everything we could have imagined!
We were nervous that a season without NeNe Leakes wouldn't exactly work, but after they brought the terminally naive Porsha Williams back from the Bravolebrity dead, placed Kandi Burruss front and center, and cast the one-and-only Kim Fields, we're no longer scared of what's to come.
Of the six new catchphrases, our fave has to be Phaedra Parks' — because it's the perfect blend of her being humble while still maintaining her wit.
Ch-ch-check out the Season 8 intro of RHOA ahead of its premiere Sunday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo (above)!!!
We bet Andy Cohen is breathing a huge sigh of relief right now.
Well, it looks like the people over at Bravo were pretty convincing about getting her to come back, because we're hearing that the highest paid housewife will be on Season Eight after all!
Similarly to how Brandi Glanville will pop up on RHOBH next season, NeNe was apparently just brought in to stir up conflict with Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore, Kim Fields, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, & Porsha Williams — since the ladies are currently filming their vacation in Jamaica.
Plus, it sounds like none of the women knew NeNe was showing up… so this surprise attack could totally be one for the Bravolebrity history books! LOLz!!!
Make sure to catch NeNe's return to Georgia when Season Eight of RHOA premieres Sunday, November 8 at 8/7c on Bravo!
