Cynthia Bailey Slams NeNe Leakes For Ike and Tina Comparison


Wetpaint.com:
Cynthia Bailey may claim to have moved past her feud with NeNe Leakes, but that doesn’t mean she’s about to let her former friend walk all over her.

After NeNe compared Cynthia’s marriage to Peter Thomas to the abusive relationship between Ike and Tina Turner, the 47-year-old model is firing back.

I know that the ‘Anna Mae’ reference from NeNe was meant to be offensive and disrespectful, however I was actually flattered to be compared to one of the world's most popular entertainers, the queen of rock and roll herself Anna Mae Bullock AKA Tina Turner. Tina Turner is a legendary icon whose success, talent, strength, spirit, beauty, and class (not to mention her fabulous legs) speaks volumes and needs no introduction. My name being mentioned in the same sentence with her is an honor within itself,” Cynthia tells BravoTV.com

While NeNe’s intentions have not been clarified, Cynthia says she can only hope that NeNe wouldn’t make such an ugly comparison. “I hope this was not a failed attempt to make fun of the fact that at one point in Ms. Turner's largely successful career and life she was a victim of domestic abuse,” says the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.

Cynthia isn’t the only one blasting NeNe for her unflattering comment. Peter recently responded to NeNe’s insults on Twitter, saying, “Contrary to what people project I don't control my wife, or have any interest in doing so” and calling her “very irresponsible” to even joke about the subject.
