During her show yesterday (January 21st), Wendy Williams revealed that she received a text from her friend NeNe Leakes that said "I'm quitting." Wendy revealed the news during an interview with Jerry O' Connell. Wendy said she checked her phone during a commercial break and that's when she got the news. She explained, ["My office is right there behind the set. I had to go to the bathroom and so I looked at my phone between commercials. And NeNe texts, ‘I’m quitting. I’m surprised I got it, because I have no service in my office, but I got it.” . . . 9:08 this morning. . . . I have to say something. I know something about NeNe that you all will cry, be sad, feel bad for her. She's carrying the weight of a huge thing on her shoulders. I’m not going to say it, she’s got to say it. But in my opinion, NeNe, you need this platform to explain the other part of your life. Forget arguing with them broads! You’ve got that secret, and that secret is going to melt their hearts."]
Wendy insisted that it has nothing to do with her husband Gregg's health. She added, "I'm telling you, NeNe, don't quit! I can't believe I've come to this."
NENE AND HER REP RESPONDS
NeNe responded to Wendy's announcement on Instagram by posting a pic of herself, along with the caption, "WHO SAID THAT!?!?! #SMH." NeNe's rep also released a statement to TooFab, saying, "It's been an especially difficult couple of weeks for Nene, and she was venting to her friend in private correspondence. Nothing has been confirmed or officially decided for next season."
