NeNe Leakes Tells Wendy Williams to 'Be Scared' in Open Letter

The frenemies are feuding over Leakes' Birkin handbag.

Published July 23, 2014

NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams are at it again. The sometimes friends (but more often foes) are at war over a supposed diss Williams made against the Real Housewives of Atlanta star's expensive Birkin handbag. Leakes was photographed with the $10,000 bag, which she graffitied with some of her signature catchphrases like "I'm very rich, b****," and "Close your legs to married men" and the picture became a focus of Williams's Hot Topics. 

"Hot Question: What do you think about @NeNeLeakes defacing her Birkin bag?" the talk show host asked her Twitter followers on Tuesday.

Leakes wasted no time retaliating. The reality star tweeted, "Don't come 4 me WENDELL," and linked to her blog with the words "be scared":

"Wendy I am sure people think that I’ve done something to you, maybe we had a beef or I slept with your man but none of that is true!" Leakes begins her post, acknowledging she's unaware of why Williams has issues with her. "I’ve actually only been nice to you! I gave you a beautiful black $3,200 Celine Phantom Bag to celebrate your 500th show but you haven’t spoken of that! But what you have chosen to do is constantly speak negative of me and lie on me! What you need to do is stop spewing hate," Leakes wrote.

"I am sure you’re scared I will take your place (I know you have heard! Ummhmm wink wink) BE SCARED! I have a clothing line on HSN coming out in a few days and I know it must be hard for a Black woman to support another Black woman but you should try it sometime," she added.

As for the accessory that started it all, Leakes wrote, "PS: My Birkin is being turned into a work of art to raise money for a worthy charity something you fail to mention on your show! I don’t have one Birkin I have five now run tell that WIG."

Williams has yet to respond to Leakes's missive, though we're sure that when she does, she won't hold her tongue. Still, chances are these two will double kiss and make up on the Wendy Williams Show in the near future. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
