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.
