Perhaps NeNe Leakes should have opted for retail therapy instead of group therapy with The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday, as she stormed out of a counseling session she organized when the wives focused on all their bad blood with her.
“I don’t think Dr. Jeff has ever dealt with a group of women like this,” Kandi Burruss said before the group counseling session with the famed psychologist, “so I don’t know if he realizes what he’s gotten into.”
“It would be good if Dr. Jeff could get us back on track,” Leakes said before the wives all sat down together, to which the doctor told her, “I’m going to hold you to the same standard as the ladies.”
He did, and she didn’t like it.
“You’re talking at Kenya, not to her,” Dr. Jeff told Leakes when he tried to mend her fractured friendship with Kenya Moore. “You’re both extremely hurt.”
“We’re never going to be friends,” said Leakes. “We will never be friends. Ever. Again.”
“You don’t realize, you’re the drama,” said Burruss, who occupied her time by eating during the session. “You just going crazy.”
Claudia Jordan called Leakes’s shady behavior toward her when they first met “bipolar,” which riled Leakes.
“This desire to be head b—- in charge is driving her crazy,” mused Burruss.
But when the doctor asked Cynthia Bailey about her former BFF and what went wrong, things went downhill fast.
“Really?” Leakes said in response to Bailey’s hurt feelings about calling her husband a bitch last season. “I know it’s all a big fat lie … You are not a victim.”
“NeNe, you’re talking over her,” warned the doctor.
“You are a mean girl,” Leakes said to Bailey. “You found your voice yet?”
“The mean girl says I’m a mean girl?” Bailey asked.
But when Burruss showed support for Bailey, Leakes bolted.
“I’m not going to sit here and act as if I am the sole cause of these friendships and relationships being the way that they are today,” Leakes said, storming out on the wives. “I’m not staying here for ‘Attack NeNe Day.’ ”
“No one is attacking you,” said the doctor, who chased her out of the room, into an elevator and through the lobby of the building.
“No, thanks,” said a furious Leakes. “If [I’m] such an issue, I can show you the hand. Here it is. Bye-bye.”
The counseling continues on The Real Housewives of Atlanta next Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
