The Wigs Are Off: Porsha Williams and Nene Leakes Trade Blows as Friendship Implodes on Social Media
After Nene Leakes tore into Porsha Williams on her latest YouTube video Thursday, Williams decided to share her side of their severed friendship by posting and then deleting screenshots of a text thread from Leakes.
The new mom posted the images to her Instagram page Friday, March 29, and in them, Leakes vehemently denies ever putting a finger on Williams after she went into Leakes’ closet on an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“You lying ass big fat hungry b—!” Leakes apparently sent Williams. “You know i never put my hands on you! Marlo Cynthia nor Kandi can EVER say that! you want an excuse for going in my closet without my permission so You can talk yo fake s— on IG all you want but remember my house is lit wit cameras!”
As she did on YouTube, the O.G. ‘wife went on to call out Williams’ history of on-air physical clashes, including her fight with Kenya Moore that led Williams to get booked in a local jail in 2014.
“This is what my so called ‘Big sis’ sent me lastnight 6 days after giving birth. @neneleakes is so miserable and ain’t happy for nobody,” Williams said in a since-deleted post. “It’s not a contest I’m just living my life and being blessed. Yes I posted this since you wanna go on live and speak on me yet again talk & about these text I figured I’d let them see for themselves! #FatShamingANewMomShameOnYou #NonsupportiveEdgelessbird #IsThisYourQueen?”
After the two exchanged more texts about who’s right and who’s wrong, they later trade barbs about one another’s bodies.
“I’m happy and blessed. Goodnight edges ” Williams said.
“Good night big piggy with the busted shape” Leakes hit back.
“Girl I know you and them granddaddy long legs and box body not coming for my body !!!! That made my night ”
After defending her legs as “pretty” and “fine,” Leakes commanded Williams, who gave birth to daughter Pilar Jhena on March 22, to “Try dieting! … That’s something you have never been good at ”
In between that time, Leakes also posted her own set of text messages. The thread she shared was much kinder than what Williams posted. It began by Leakes writing her “little sis,” “Today your life changed! Congratulations!
“No matter where we are in our relationship, being a mother is a true blessing and only women can bring life into the world!” she continued. “That day in Destin Fl when you said ‘you might be pregnant’ i was genuinely happy for you then and now.”
“Baby Pilar is so precious she has been doing so well!!” Williams responded back in part. “I’m still just taking it super easy cuz I had a c section but other than that we are great! Thank you for checking in and yes i do know you genuinely cared thank you.”
“SWIPE: @porsha4real This is what i sent you after you gave birth!” Leakes explained in the caption of the photo set. “I sent you text messages last nite after i saw on social media what you had said. I could have responded back on social media but i decided to text rather than do that! I know you need viewers to tune into your 3 episode commercial, which is why you doing the most! Bye ankles #HBIC.”
And while Williams removed her text thread from Instagram, her comment under Leakes’ remained.
“It’s too hard being friends with you. I’m done,” she said in part.
In response, fans have been giving their own takes on the matter.
“Queen Nene got LIFE!!! ”
“Porsha deleted her now just take this down y’all both better than this.”
“Y’all are immature”
“@porsha4real you won! SUS”
