It’s safe to say that Wendy Williams will never be BFFs with any of the women from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Wendy has often offered her unsolicited opinions and advice about every cast member. So it’s no surprise that once again Wendy has offended one of the ladies from the show. Recently Wendy used her show as a platform to take jabs at Nene Leakes about a Hermes Birkin bag that Nene decorated with handwritten statements that she had said while appearing on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. This sent Nene into a frenzy, and prompted her to write a letter to Wendy, which she posted on her website. In the letter, Nene explains exactly how she feels about the daytime talk show host. Leakes opens her letter by saying she has been nothing but nice to Williams, and she can’t understand why she has so much hostility towards her.
Leakes wrote, “Wendy I am sure people think that I’ve done something to you, maybe we had a beef or I slept with your man but none of that is true! I’ve actually only been nice to you!”
Nene goes on to say that she has gone to great lengths to be nice to Wendy by sending her a $3,200 Celine Phantom Bag to celebrate her 500th episode. Nene insists that despite all the nice gestures, Wendy still only wants to focus on the negative.
Nene says, “But what you have chosen to do is constantly speak negative of me and lie on me! What you need to do is stop spewing hate! When it comes to gossip you are the lowest of the low! “
Leakes insinuates that Wendy’s ill feelings towards her stem from her turning down a chance to appear on the Wendy Williams Show. Nene also hints that Wendy may be out of a job soon and that she will be replacing her.
“I know you hate because I turned down the chance to come on your Talk Show and I am sure you’re scared I will take your place (I know you have heard! Ummhmm wink wink) BE SCARED! “, said Leakes.
Nene ends her letter by talking about the Birkin bag that sparked this rant.
Leakes wrote, “PS: My Birkin is being turned into a work of art to raise money for a worthy charity something you fail to mention on your show! I don’t have one Birkin I have five. Now run tell that WIG.”
So far there has been no comment from Wendy regarding Nene’s letter, but I’m sure Wendy will definitely have a response.
Break out the champagne and cupcakes because it’s someone’s birthday today! Happy birthday to everyone celebrating! We wish you nothing but great things today and all of your days. Here are the celebrities also celebrating today:
Singer Michelle Williams turns 34 today.
Everyone can relax and breath. Christina Milian is not dating Lil Wayne. The singer cleared up rumors of her dating the rapper a few days ago.
“We make music together,” explained the singer to media. “It’s work. I’m finally around my record label and I have the opportunity to make music.”
Gabrielle Union and her basketball player fiancé Dewayne Wade have already experienced some trials and tribulations in their relationship, but despite it all the couple is still rolling strong. Recently, the couple sent out invitations to their upcoming nuptials. Gabby and Wade’s wedding guest received wooden invites that prompted them to “Put on your dancing shoes and join us for a Throw Down.” The wedding will be held on August 30th, but the location of the wedding has not been disclosed.
Instead, guests have been asked to meet in the lobby of a particular hotel where they will then be driven to the secluded location of the nuptials. It appears that Gabby and Wade are trying to make every effort possible to elude the paparazzi from crashing their big day. Not only did their guest not receive the location of the venue, but they also received notes with their invites informing them that “no phones and no cameras” will be allowed at their event. The couple feels that having a no phone and camera policy will help to ensure their privacy. I’m pretty sure that is going to be a tough rule for some of the guests to follow. It’s going to be interesting to see how many guests break the rules or at least try.
On the heels of last weeks ESPY Awards which novice NFL star Michael Sam take home the Arthur Ashe Courage Award former NFL player/coach Tony Dungy has stirred the pot and lit the internet ablaze over his remarks coerning the drafting of the openly gay Sam.
You most likely recognize Dungy from his very successful stints as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Indianapolis Cults where he became the first black coach in NFL history to win a Superbowl. In an interview with a local Tampa publication Tony stated he wouldn’t have taken the Missouri defensive end Sam had he been running the team. ”I wouldn’t have taken him,” said Dungy, now an NFL analyst for NBC. “Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it. It’s not going to be totally smooth,” he told the paper. “… Things will happen.”
Dungy did not go on to elaborate as to what those “things” he mentioned could entail. And with those thoughts Tony is now under fire from Michael Sam fans, lgbt groups and others.
Certainly there are a sea of others who are trepidatious about an openly gay player transitioning smoothly into the NFL culture, still, isn’t it about time? Comment your thoughts below…
