NeNe Leakes slams 'RHOA' co-stars on exit from 'Dancing with the Stars'

NeNe Leakes was eliminated from competing in "Dancing with the Stars" last night and she took that opportunity to take a few jabs at her fellow "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-stars on her way out. Leakes and her professional dancing partner Tony Dovolani were sent packing on Latin Night of "DWTS" according to a Monday report by Reality Tea.

NeNe found herself at the bottom of the leader board on Monday along with James Maslow and Charlie White. This time she couldn't be saved though and the queen of Reality TV was sent home to Atlanta.

According to many reports though, NeNe Leakes used the opportunity to throw a bit of shade at her "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-stars on the way out. At least that's what it looks like. She told E! News, "I'm going to be leaving this show with friends for life. This has been an amazingly positive experience for me. I do know there are positive people to work with in the world."

Leakes statement after her "Dancing with the Stars" elimination is assumed to be directed at "RHOA" co-star Cynthia Bailey. The two met on the set of "RHOA" and just recently severed their friendship. According to both sides, they will not be making up.

Many are glad to see NeNe gone, believing she deserved elimination weeks ago but was kept around for ratings. Now she is being criticized on her exit because she didn't even thank her dance coach Tony Dovolani on her way out. That aligns perfectly with the diva reputation she has already been said to have earned.

What do you think of NeNe Leakes elimination on "Dancing with the Stars?" Did she deserve to go home? Do you think she intentionally took jabs at her "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-stars when she was interviewed? Leave your opinion in the comments below.
