A toast to new beginnings and never looking back!
Bailey shared on Jenny McCarthy’s SiriusXM radio show Tuesday why her falling out with Leakes on a recent “Real Housewives of Atlanta” episode was the final straw.
“I feel, like, at this point, I’m paying attention now,” Bailey, 52, said. “I see things for exactly how they are. I’m not confused about my relationship or if I even had a real relationship with this woman.”
She continued, “I deserve better. At this point, this is not a healthy thing for me. This is not a healthy person for me to be around. This is not good for my spirit. I’m all about positive affirmation. I don’t want to tear women down. I want to lift them up.”
Leakes — on the show and social media — has called out Bailey for allegedly conspiring to invite Leakes’ enemy Kenya Moore to a party Leakes was attending.
“YOU DONT UNDERSTAND HOW THIS BROKE ME! I will NEVER be ok! NEVER!,” Leakes, 51, wrote on Twitter Sunday. “So much has happened that you don’t get to see! Thank God they showed this and gave me a little rope! I’m broken! My sisterhood was real REAL!”
Bailey maintains she invited Moore to the launch of her Bellini cocktail, but did not know if Moore would actually show up. However, producers aired footage of Bailey allegedly saying on a hot mic, “I’m supposed to act like I didn’t know Kenya was coming.”
Also on McCarthy’s show, Bailey hinted that perhaps editing was to blame for what was perceived on the show.
“I read a caption, but I don’t hear those words coming out of my mouth nor would I have a reason for those words to come out of my mouth, but OK,” she said. “If I did say that, at that point, once both of the ladies were in the room, Jenny, my only concern was keeping the peace and having a successful event.”
