The Real Housewives of
Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes:
Living a Lesbian Lie?
While NeNe Leakes prepares to marry her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes, for the second time, one of her castmates is claiming she’d prefer to walk down the aisle with someone else— another woman.
According to fellow Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Stewart, NeNe’s relationship with their co-star, Cynthia Bailey, is a little too close for comfort.
On Bravo’s April 28 "Secrets Revealed" special, Porsha said that NeNe, 45, and Cynthia, 45, have “an unnatural relationship,” fueling rumors that the ladies may be lesbian lovers.
“I hang with the gays,” NeNe said in her own defense. “But I ain’t gay.” Cynthia also went to bat on Twitter, claiming, “I love me some NeNe, but being gay is pushing it.”
So are the gal pals telling the truth? Apparently so.

A RHOA insider tells In Touch, “Of course NeNe and Cynthia aren’t lovers. The other women always comment about how they’re obsessed with each other, but to say they’re more than just friends is crazy. Porsha’s just starting trouble.”
But it’s easy to see how she could have assumed.
NeNe and Cynthia aren’t shy when it comes to stripping down in front of each other or puckering up for candid pics— they even attended Miami’s Lesbian Pride celebration together in 2011.
Porsha has since backed away from her lesbian allegation, claiming she was joking.
Do you think there’s validity to Porsha’s accusation or is she trying to get a rise out of NeNe?
