Did you know that NeNe Leakes was set to have her own talk show? Did you know that Wendy Williams put a stop to it?
So, here’s what went down (allegedly)…
NeNe was in development for her own daytime talk show that was slated to air weekdays after The Wendy Williams Show.
Because the show was being produced by the same people who work with Wendy (Debmar-Mercury), the powers that be consulted with her before moving forward. Wendy gave NeNe & co. her blessing…despite there being rumors that the two didn’t really get along.
One day, Wendy went on air and criticized NeNe for defacing her Hermes Birkin bag — you know how Wendy does. NeNe didn’t take too kindly to her comments and blasted Wendy in an open letter – the one where she called her “Wendell.”
After that, Wendy went back to her people and basically gave them an ultimatum – It’s either her (NeNe), or me.
They chose Wendy based off the success of her existing show. NeNe’s talk show died.
