NeNe Leakes may never mend her relationship with former bestie Cynthia Bailey – and don’t expect Porsha Williams to either! On last week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, it seemed that the feud between Leakes and Bailey had come to an end. But despite embracing and vowing to “continue to be friends and support each other,” Williams has spoken out to insist that the duo will never be best friends again.
“Honestly, I think that ship has passed,” she told OKMagazine.com. “It's really unfortunate, because I feel like they had real love for one another.”
During last week's episode, Leakes questioned reconciling with the former model when she said that she “never makes the same mistakes twice” in her confessional. Bailey’s husband, Peter Thomas, also expressed his disappointment over his wife’s decision to fix the friendship.
But Williams told the website, “When those close to you hurt you and turn their back on you and you don't get a straight reason why, it’s hard to come back from that.”
From Leakes calling Thomas names to the housewives taking jabs at each other through Bravo blog posts, the feud between the stars was simmering for months.
And while Williams believes too much has happened for Leakes and Bailey to make up, she advised Bailey to “learn to use her new voice to be strong and confident, not rude and mean.”
As for Williams, she insisted that although her own friendship with Bailey is “nonexistent,” she does hope for the best for Bailey and Leakes.
She admitted, “I pray they find peace apart.”
