The Outing Seemingly Hints That Everything Is All Good Between The ‘Ask Wendy’ Author And The Bravo Personality Following ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Exit Drama.
The recent treatment that Wendy Williams received from high-end store Bergdorf Goodman wasn’t sitting well with her. In the Monday, March 2 episode of “The Wendy Williams Show”, the TV host blasted the store for allegedly racial profiling her when she was out for shopping with pal NeNe Leakes.
“We each had a sales girl. We gave them each all of our sizes. They’re fetching stuff…NeNe bought a handful of gowns,” the 55-year-old recalled her shopping experience in the luxury department store in midtown Manhattan, before adding that Marlo Hampton, who also joined her during the outing, “charged a whole bunch of stuff.”
Wendy continued, “We not just shopped. We went upstairs and we had lunch and the whole bit. It was the three of us… takeover.” She then accused the security guards of treating them “like the hood.”
“Yep. And that’s alls I’m gonna say. You can earn what you want, you can do what you want. But when you are what you are, you better not be surprised at how people treat you,” she added. “We were followed like we were about to do something. So when this place tells me that I can’t post this picture, ‘I’m like I’m posting it on ‘Hot Topics’ then and I’m going to tell you exactly what it is.”
Prior to this, Wendy shared a video of their outing with NeNe on her Instagram accout. “OK, so I’m going to Bergdorf with….,” NeNe said before panning the camera to Wendy who was on her phone while resting her head on the former’s shoulder. “I’m busy. Leave me alone, leave me alone right now! Get out of my face,” Wendy replied jokingly with NeNe laughing.
“Going shopping & for food. Watch @neneleakes on @bravoandy tonight. See you in the morning!” so Wendy wrote in the caption.

The outing seemingly hinted that everything was good between the two stars after “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” exit drama. The “Ask Wendy” author previously claimed on her show that NeNe told her that she was leaving the Bravo reality show. “I took a break between commercials, my office is right there behind the set. I had to go to the bathroom and so I looked at my phone between commercials. And NeNe texts, ‘I’m quitting,’ ” Williams said at the time. “I’m surprised I got it, because I have no service in my office, but I got it.”
NeNe didn’t seem to be happy with how Wendy publicly shared the private text. “Private conversations should be left in private! What are girlfriends for if you can’t vent to them on those types of days,” the TV star criptically wrote on Twitter.
