The comedy world is pretty hard to penetrate, so once NeNe Leakes announced her arrival into the new territory, legendary comedian Luenell wanted her to know she had to earn her bones.
After learning of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member's sold-out one woman show, the funny lady took to Instagram to slam her, sharing her thoughts on reality stars casually becoming comics.
Of course, NeNe didn't take Luenell's words lying down. She fired back in her own way.
According to Bossip, the reality star even brought talk show host Wendy Williams, who also took a dip in the comedy pool with the help of Luenell, into the mix, telling the legendary comic to stop interrupting her grindin'.
"@luenell I NEVER said I was a comedian so be clear about that," she wrote in a comment on IG. "I find it ironic that you took the time to comment on the moves I make but u had no problem helping Wendy Williams and u had no problem coming on my show filming with Claudia Jordan. We all work our ass off out here in these streets! U can call me a lot of things but the one thing I definitely I'm [sic] is a business woman about to take this thing on a major tour and to tv."
Of course, NeNe had to throw her signature shade in there while she was at it: "If you stop being salty and get out your feelings, you might can start opening up for me," she said. "Call me, I got a job for you #dontdome #wesoldoutoverhere #oldhater."
