Whodda thunk it? Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leaks is a card-carrying member of Team Teresa Giudice. Weird. Apparently NeNe thinks that since Melissa Gorga came onto The Real Housewives of New Jersey after Teresa, she should be more respectful. After NeNe trashed Brandi Glanville on Watch What Happens Live: NeNe One-On-One, she told Andy Cohen:
I feel for Teresa because there's something about being the first one in. When you're the first one in on one of these shows and somebody comes behind you, it's sort of like, "Hold on, you need to respect the veteran. I was here first. You need to play on my territory." So I kind of sided with Teresa in that area. Melissa, you came on her show. So you watched her on television and you wanted to be on the show like she was. No, girl, take a seat now! You're not a veteran.
While I do understand where NeNe is coming from -- there is a slight pecking order on the Housewives shows -- there is also a thing called human decency. And just because someone has been on a show longer than another person, it doesn't give them the right to act completely rudely to them. And let's not forget, Teresa and Melissa's personal history far exceeds their professional history. These two have had problems for years now. RHONJ only documented it (and, yes, probably exacerbated it, as well).
If NeNe wants to be on Team Teresa because she thinks Melissa Gorga is in the wrong, fine. Makes sense. But if she likes Teresa better because she has more longevity on the show than Melissa -- that's really lame.
Are you Team Gorga or Team Giudice?
