Playing NeNe Leakes Calls Out 'The View' Hosts: They're a 'Bunch of Mean Girls'

NeNe Leakes has no shame in calling out those who aren't good to mama.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was a guest on The View on Tuesday to discuss her new Broadway role as Mama Morton in Chicago. Following her heated interview with hosts Joy Behar, Raven-Symone, Candace Cameron-Bure, Paula Faris, and Whoopi Goldberg, Leakes had a lot to say about the "bunch of mean girls" she encountered.

The 47-year-old reality TV star took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the taping.

"Just sat down with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don't belong," she wrote, then later deleted.

The "shade," as many of her fans commented, didn't stop there. She also posted a photo of herself posing with some of the show's hosts to her Instagram, but there was one major problem: Leakes cropped Symone out of the original photo that was taken by ABC, which you can see below.

During the show, the conversation took a few unexpected turns, when Cameron-Bure acknowledged Leakes' decision to re-marry her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes, two years ago.

"Love is better the second time around," Leakes said. "I love having a husband. I love being married."

"But why'd you get divorced in the first place," Behar asked.

"Well, honey, I had to teach him a lesson," Leakes replied, unashamed by her actions. "Sometimes you have to do that kind of thing."

"Look at Joy trying to dig," she continued, seemingly annoyed by Behar's comments. "For example, to never cross me in the wrong way, how about that?"

Later in the show, Leakes also talked about her decision to not return for season eight of RHOA.

"I felt like season seven was really hard," she explained. "I felt like there were times where I felt really ganged up on."

"I can handle myself, Whoopi, you know me," she continued. "It's not cool, it's not fair for everybody to come at you at once, and everybody tryin' to make you appear to be something that you're not."

Despite her awkward exchanges with Behar, Leakes finished the interview on a happier note. She said that stepping back from the reality TV show that brought her fame has helped her in "getting back" to the real NeNe and "having a good time" with her real friends. Being an actor, she said, was "always my thing," and she's happy to be doing what she loves.

Chicago marks Leakes' second show on Broadway. She made her debut in Cinderella in 2014, where she played the wicked stepmother, Madame.

"I am absolutely loving it," she said. "I love Broadway. The schedule is tough, it's a tough schedule to work. But I love it." Watch the full interview below.

Leakes isn't the only one feeling the heat. Controversy has surrounded all of The View hosts ever since they made controversial comments about nurses in September, but Symone is the latest co-host to receive personal attacks.

Earlier this month, a petition was started to get her removed from the show, following her comments defending Ben Fields, a police officer who used extreme measures to remove a disruptive high school student. As ET previously reported, the petition claimed that the former That's So Raven star had been "spouting her ignorant and self- hating spiel on The View for long enough."
