Brandi Glanville on NeNe Leakes: “She Takes Responsibility for Everyone’s Success”Published by on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 10:00 am.
A mini-war of words has broken out among the Real Housewives, specifically between Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.
It all began when NeNe called Brandi a “train wreck” and mocked her because she said Brandi, “thinks she’s a gangsta” when Leakes appeared on Andy Cohen’s live gabfest, Watch What Happens Live. But it didn’t end there. Glanville picked up the verbal baton and ran with it all the way to the press.
“It doesn’t affect me. She doesn’t even know me…” Glanville told Radaronline.com. “…Get to know me first. Then she can say what she wants about me…” She continued, “…And I am gangsta! Why can’t I be gangsta? Because I’m white skinny and tall?!”
Leakes also reportedly said about Glanville, “ She’s just off the chain, she’s off the hook [with] a lot of things that she has to say, just so talkative.”
Glanville admits to being tipsy the last time she saw NeNe at the Bravo Upfonts in April at 2am. Brandi says there was lots of trash talking but they both were having a good time. She told Radaronline.com, “I was totally tipsy… we were all just having fun,” Glanville added. “So I said I was gangsta. It’s NeNe… I could care less. I don’t know her.”
But Brandi confessed that watching NeNe ream her on TV has since given her pause on her true feelings about the Housewives franchise highest paying star. “As I was watching the show last night I felt like she was drinking her own Kool-Aid a little too much,” says Glanville about NeNe, whom she thinks could use an ego check. “I do think she was trying to take responsibility for everyone’s success a bit…everyone on the show brings something different and they’re all important roles.”
