It seems the door is closed on the friendship between Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, DailyMail reports.

Hot on the heels of Nene unfollowing four of her cast mates following the tapping of their reunion show last week, the 51-year-old has now confirmed her and the former model are now simply ‘co-workers’.

“Cynthia has done a lot of stuff, in my opinion, on the down low, very sneaky and underhanded,” Nene said on Instagram Live. 

“I don’t have no hate in my heart for Cynthia. We are co-workers from this day forward. I don’t have any reason to not speak to her … but anything else further than that it’s not going to happen.”

Meanwhile, Cynthia has thrown doubt about what Nene said in the video as Nene was wearing her Cynthia Bailey sunglasses.

“I’ve always been a friend to her, and if she’s really my girl like she’s claimed to be my girl then we could get past this,” the 52-year-old said at a WE tv’s “Bridezillas” event. “But I noticed she was wearing my eyewear, though, so I need to tag Cynthia Bailey eyewear. I appreciate that. It’s good when we support each other even when we’re mad at each other.”

According to the Daily Mail, a lot of Nene’s anger towards Cynthia is because of her continued friendship with former Housewives star Kenya Moore.

The two, and their spouses, have often been seen dining out together along with fellow housewife Kandi Burruss-Tucker.

Kenya, who was Miss USA 1993, is also alleged to have been on set when the three-part reunion was shot.

With Nene claiming her cast mates ganged up on her during the reunion, Cynthia believes fans should wait until the show airs before making any judgements. 

“It just got a little bit tricky for me, but I just own my truth, and said what I had to say,” she said. “But it’s going to be a good reunion. I’ll tell you that.”
