It seems as if Kandi Buruss‘ claim in August that Nene Leakes is beginning to patch things up with her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars is true.
The O.G. star of the reality series was spotted at Eva Marcille’s baby shower over the weekend, and she even made sure to sign a few gift boxes to be clear that she did not arrive empty-handed.
Just making sure flower child knows what the Leakes gav’em??,” Leakes said, using the sunflower emoji Marcille is known to include on her own social media posts.
Leakes’ show of support for Marcille, who is soon welcoming her third baby and second son with husband Michael Sterling, was applauded by the Swagg Boutique owner’s fans.
“Awww, I’m glad you went to support her♥️”
“Glad you ladies made up ❤️”
“Love this mature growth your showing Nene, hope this shows people another brilliant side of you, that your heart is pure. ???”
“Classy and a true blessing”
“TeamNeNe???? Be your best sis. The hell with the rest of them.??”
It’s a change from Leakes’ interactions with Marcille months earlier at the “RHOA” season 11 reunion. There, Leakes went head-to-head with most of her co-stars. Her problem with the “America’s Next Top Model” alum stemmed from an incident where Marcille stormed off from the soft opening of Burruss’ new Old Lady Gang restaurant location. When Leakes went after her, Marcille agreed to talk only if cameras were not present. Marcille was unaware, however, that Leakes remained mic’d.
“You said ‘I’ma take my microphone off,’ and we had a whole conversation as you proceeded to walk to me under the understanding that I had that you didn’t have a microphone on. You, in fact, had a microphone on!” Marcille said, before adding, “That’s what irritated me, because I thought your mic was off, and then we watched on TV, you didn’t call and tell me then that your mic was on.”
Why do I need to give you a heads-up?” Leakes shot back. “I had your back. But since you feeling some kind of way, I know where we are. I get where we are.”
Leakes ultimately unfollowed the majority of her “RHOA” co-stars, including Marcille. Now, however, it seems she has made peace with Marcille enough to show up to her baby shower with lots of gifts for soon-to-be-born Maverick Sterling.
