WENDY Williams claimed that she was ‘followed’ while shopping with Real Housewives of Atlanta’s star, Nene Leakes and Marlo Hampton, at Bergdorf Goodman.
She joined the two women during their glamorous press trip to New York City.
The daytime host talked about the trio’s trip to the luxurious store in NYC during her show’s hot topics segment when she made the shocking claim.
She said: “I ended up buying a neglige, Nene bought a handful of gowns, Marlo charged a whole bunch of stuff.
“We not just shopped, we went upstairs and had lunch. The three of us take over. Can I tell you about the security? They treated us like the hood that they treated us.
“And that’s all I’m going to say. You can earn what you want, you can do what you want but when you are what you are, you better not be surprised at how people treat you…We were followed, and not with a lit credit card followed, followed like we might have to do something.”
She continued: “So when this place tells me I can’t post this picture, I’m like ‘You know what, I’m going to post on hot topics then and I’m going to say how it is.’ Yeah.”
She explained how her team had refused her to post the “iconic” photo and calling out Bergdorf Goodman, but felt the need to talk about it during her show.
Bergdorf Goodman didn’t answer to The Sun’s request for comments about Wendy’s claims.
Bravo boss, Andy Cohen, later joined the three women during their shopping spree in NYC.
Wendy and Nene have been good friends for quite some time.
Their friendship reached another milestone when Wendy made her Real Housewives of Atlanta debut as Nene called her to ask for advice.
Nene told her over the phone: “Here’s the problem, Kenya. I’m trying to be kind to her … and she treats me like s**t. I don’t feel like doing this all the time.
She continued: “Me traveling with all of these girls, I’m having anxiety because I know if Kenya pushes me, Wendy, I’m going to say some shit and it’s going to be ugly.”
Wendy told her: “Let her bury herself, ultimately speaking, true colors show.”
Nene and Kenya’s feud started when Kenya claimed that Nene didn’t reach out to her during her delicate pregnancy while the OG housewife of Atlanta was dealing with her husband’s cancer diagnosis.
Just two days since making these claims on the show, Wendy backtracked her remarks.
She claimed during Hot Topics, it was actually Nene and Marlo who told her they were followed in Bardorf’s.
Wendy said: “One of them says you realize we were followed the whole time.
“…I didn’t know anything about that. I didn’t see any of that.”
