When asked her opinion on Williams’ honest opinions of the show and its stars, she said:

“I think she’s honest, and unfortunately that can come across as harsh. She has a job to do, and she gets paid to do it,” she said, noting that she’s even been criticized by Wendy in the past. “I’ve always had a great relationship with her. I understand her. I’m very opinionated as well, very strong as well. And they don’t affect me, those words don’t affect me the way they do other people.”

Kenya’s comments relate to the ongoing drama between Wendy and Kenya’s costar, NeNe Leakes beef started earlier this year when she had criticism for NeNe after theRHOA reunion aired in May. Wendy even stated that NeNe “needs to go.”

    Agreed that they take Wendy too serously.

  • Wendy is toxic at times but she’s only doing her job.

    Happy Friday everyone! Well Kenya is right about Wendy. Notice how she is the only girl on rhoa that isn’t pressed over Wendy’s comments. Porsha and Nene are always trying to clap back at Wendy but Wendy gets the last laugh. Wendy’s show is a success. Despite how horrible the Aaliyah movie was over 4 million viewers watched which means Wendy will be getting a fat check. Wendy hosted the Soul Train Awards and various reality TV show reunions this year. So Wendy is straight while Nene and Porsha will be impoverished has beens soon.

    Talk about YOURSELF Kenya. This is what I don’t like about Kenya. She doesn’t mind talking and throwing shade at everyone even when she is not a direct party to the situation. Then, does the wide teary eyed ‘victim’ act when anyone repeats what Kenya has done/said. Cynthia is giving Kenya entirely too much personal info. I will come back on Cynthia.

      But they asked her a question like they do all the cast mates. LOL.

    MHO is that when the housewives stop filming as a group, such as Aviva with NY and now Nene in Vegas, it’s time to go. This is an ensemble cast. Like it or not.

    I agree with Kenya. Nene takes things way too personal. Nene you’re not that important.

    Truth hurts. That is why WW is hated some much. Her life is far from perfect but her job is to comment on current events/Hot Topics.

    I give Kenya A LOT of credit because I think Wendy was one of the people who fell for the Apollo lie! I don’t think I could be as gracious to Williams as Kenya is being.

  • TopGear

    Considering Wendy had dissed Kenya Moore in the past, I’m surprised Kenya didn’t use the interview to get at her.

    Noooo……… Kenya Moore is right…….. Nene needs to get OVER IT and deal with it!! Wendy Williams is a talk show host / celebrity gossip columnist, it’s her job to talk about people………….. Nene ain’t above anyone else when it comes to gossip!
