Following in the proud traditions of outraged people with a wireless connection, NeNe took to her own blog on Tuesday to air out her grievances, which reportedly had to do with an expensive handbag she was due.
Wendy Williams found herself on the receiving end of a long-winded rant this Tuesday.
“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 wrote. “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!”

Real Housewives star NeNe Leakes called on a passing cop to help her dog escape
Nene Leakes’ dog drama was luckily ended by police, yesterday (March 5, 2013), as she accidentally locked her dog inside her car and had to call on the Beverley Hills cops to help out. It’s one thing locking your keys in your car, we understand that that’s a pretty easy thing to do. But locking your keys in your car when you have a pooch inside it – now that’s a serious problem.
Unsure of how to get little Playa (a Yorkie) out of the car, a desperate NeNe Leakes (real name Linnethia Monique Johnson) called upon a passing cop to help her figure out how to get the car open again and free the pup in the process. Luckily for NeNe it was pretty chilly in Beverley Hills yesterday, so she didn’t have the additional worry of little Playa passing out from the heat inside the vehicle. Still, it must have been pretty scary stuff knowing your pet’s stuck inside your car… along with your car keys. Aside from anything else, we saw those YouTube clips a few months ago of dogs learning to drive cars. The last thing the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star would have wanted would be to see Playa driving off in her motor.
