Is Nene Leakes’ rant justified? Or did Wendy Williams go too far calling out the issues about the handbag? The two celebrities have been publicly feuding over an expensive handbag and fans have been taking sides. The issue? According to the New York Daily News on Wednesday, The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star posted a rant targeting Wendy Williams. Leakes said the reason she was upset with the talk show host was due to a pricey handbag and she claims that the daytime host “constantly speaks negative” of the reality star.

This all started when Wendy Williams asked her audience on twitter about NeNe Leakes painting phrases on Hermes Birkin bag, which retail for as high as $150,000. There are a number of her famous lines that NeNe coined on the hit reality show painted on the front and it looks rather different. In fact it appears that the bags are defaced, but Leakes suggests this might be for charity auction and her note takes a serious swipe at Wendy Williams.

It’s obvious the reality star thinks she is as good as or better than Wendy Williams. Making some references about the idea of taking over Williams’ talk show, the star’s rant was intense. So far Wendy Williams hasn't responded in public about the letter that Leakes put on her website.

The funniest part of the feud? Well, it has to be the handbag. Two extremely rich women arguing over a handbag that costs more than most of the viewer’s income in a year is high insensitive. The star’s authority status on handbags reminds everyone watching that a debate over material possessions makes people look quite insecure. And at the end of the day, they can’t take the handbag to heaven.

The only other thing funnier than the handbag drama is NeNe Leakes’ suggestion that she could get a talk show. We can’t stop laughing at that idea. And Wendy Williams is probably laughing at that too.
