Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta was equally as sad as it was entertaining.
While Mama Joyce kept us all laughing at her antics, we were truly saddened to witness the demise of the friendship between former Ride-or-die’s NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey.
After the show aired, NeNe took to Instagram to put Cynthia’s ‘sell out personality and blow with the wind persona’ on blast and explain why she feels Cynthia ‘turned’ on her.
She posted the above photo of them together at several events after the show aired and attached the following lengthy message:

She also shared a few text messages between her and Cynthia from last October after ‘bitch-gate’.
Did u forget u sent me this text after Mexico the morning before Gregg & I shot the scene with u & Peter! Don’t play dumb friend! I know u innocent.”
Yikes. It’s so crazy to see someone who was so adamant about not discussing a ‘personal friendship’ on the reunion show, yet quickly turn to social media to discuss such ‘private’ matters.
Either way, we wish them both well. If you missed it, check out a few clips from last night’s show below.
