AceShowbiz - "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" aired its explosive season 11 finale on Sunday, March 31. The finale saw NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey's friendship falling through after the latter brought former cast member Kenya Moore to her party without letting NeNe know.
The episode gave fans closure about why NeNe accused Cynthia of being "sneaky and underhanded." It was revealed that Cynthia apparently planned to pretend to be shocked when Kenya arrived at the launch event for her Seagram's Escape's Peach Bellini signature drink while it was her who plotted to bring NeNe's rival back unbeknownst to NeNe.
"I'm supposed to act like I didn’t know Kenya was coming," Chyntia could be heard whispering to boyfriend Mike Hill at the bash. And she did act shocked to see Kenya when co-star Kandi Burruss brought her in. "Now Cynthia, you said you wanted Kenya here and here she is," Kandi told Cynthia.
Later, Cynthia was caught covering things up once again. She tried to talk to Kandi off-camera without knowing that Kandi still had mic on her. "I just want to make sure we was on the same page, setting up how Kenya got here," Cynthia told Kandi.
NeNe was furious with Cynthia and was feeling betrayed by the latter as she felt that Cynthia seemed to have Kenya's back more than hers. Cynthia reasoned that she should be allowed to be friends with both, without getting involved in their drama. Not having any of it, NeNe got up from the table and stormed off the room while crying.
Cynthia followed her to apologize, and NeNe seemed to accept her apology. However, things turned ugly between them in the reunion as NeNe unfollowed Cynthia and most of "RHOA" co-stars on Instagram.
Additionally, NeNe revealed on social media that she was no longer friends with Cynthia and that they were strictly co-workers from now on. "I don't have no hate in my heart for Cynthia," NeNe said. "We are coworkers from this day forward. I don't have any reason not to speak to her, I'm happy to not speak to her. I'm happy to speak to her. But anything else further than that, it's not going to happen. No. We are coworkers."
