Hours after Wendy Williams' interview with "Puerto Rican Princess" Joseline Hernandez went viral, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum and former friend of Williams commented on the debacle.

"Speak," NeNe commented along with five shouting emojis on a clip of the interview, shared by The Shade Room, during which Joseline was seen calling out Wendy for not uplifting Black women coming up in the industry.

"We love you, but at the same time, you have to do better," Hernandez said to Williams in the post. "You're not in an abusive relationship anymore. You don't deal with that man anymore. You should be in a better place. And when people come on your show, especially Black culture, you should be nicer to us – the ladies – you should respect us, you should give us our flowers while we're here, and you should tell us how proud you are of what we've done in the streets."

At one point, Wendy even grabbed the flowers that were in a nearby arrangement and chucked them toward the screen displaying Joseline's face. It was a lot.

But back to Leakes, whose remark on the matter leads us to believe she agrees with Hernandez's assessment of the Wendy Williams Show host, with whom she's had a rocky relationship the past few years.

It was in September of last year – following comments Wendy made during a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen interview – that NeNe declared their friendship was done for good.

During the chat with the Bravo boss, Williams said she didn't know what Leakes would do for money after her dramatic exit from RHOA, noting that she hadn't established herself as a "a legitimate multimillion-dollar situation," like Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel had with her Skinnygirl empire.

At the time, Williams said, "NeNe likes attention, dramatic attention," adding that she could not picture another show working out for Leakes because she's also "boring."

In a video response, NeNe said, "Yes, I have considered Wendy a close friend or associate. Why she has chosen to speak so negatively of me lately? I have not come out, I have not commented on it. Last night was the first time I have commented on anything Wendy has said," adding that she had even talked to Williams about her situation prior to announcing her RHOA exit.

"So Wendy went on her show, and she talked negatively about that. A couple days later, she talked negatively again. Then she does Andy Cohen's show, and here she sits, speaking negatively of my exit and bringing my family into the equation," she continued. "Now that's what you're not gonna do, Wendy. What you're not gonna do is speak negative of my family."

Leakes wrapped her friendship termination announcement by suggesting Williams "spend more of your time trying to figure out how you can drain your enormously large legs and feet."
