Dailies | ‘Flipping Out's’ Jeff Lewis: NeNe Leakes Was ‘Regressing,’ Getting ‘Dirty’ on ‘RHOA’ (Video)

The Bravo star tells Wendy Williams he's glad to see the Atlanta housewife land a new gig on ABC's “Dancing With the Stars”

Jeff Lewis isn't one to hold his tongue, especially when it comes to talking about fellow Bravolebrities from the “Real Housewives” franchise.

The “Flipping Out” star appeared on Thursday's episode of “The Wendy Williams Show” and swiftly weighed in on the casting of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes on the upcoming season of ABC's “Dancing With the Stars.”

“I'm actually very happy that she has this gig, because I feel like this last season we're watching right now, I feel like she has kind of regressed, taken a step backwards. I feel like she's getting a little dirty,” Lewis, who was promoting the seventh season return of “Flipping Out” to Bravo earlier this week, told Williams.

Leakes, whose NBC comedy “The New Normal” was canceled after one season, had recently been in the middle of a massive brawl on the Bravo show, which led to some serious injuries to Kenya Moore's friend.

“I felt dirty,” Lewis continued. “I felt like this has gone too far. I don't mind flipping tables, I don't mind screaming at each other, but when they start breaking ribs, that's where I'm like, ooh, this is a line.”

Williams agreed, saying she had “backed out” of the show after that incident.

    Ne ne is mad because she has nothing going on. She won't last long on Dancing with the stars.

  • Goodbye Atlanta Housewives

    Atlanta and the whole Nene created fight was absolutely the worst display of brutal thugs in pretty dresses that I have ever seen. I'm done watching Atlanta and NJ Housewives since these “women” are disgusting and out of control. Greed is ugly and being a thug is even worse. Beating up one cast member physically? That's just so uncool. Disgraceful. WTH??? What is wrong with you people???

    Nene has been bitten by the Hollywood bug….She thinks she is better than anyone else. She is an instigator and always has been. Her improvised calmness is a joke and as sheer as a bride's veil…….. She has a lot to learn. This show is going down the drains fast. ( NO I'm not gonna type her name with 2 capitols. LOL She is FAR from royalty.)
