Cynthia Bailey is speaking out after her former Real Housewives of Atlanta costar NeNe Leakes put her on blast for not supporting her enough following husband Gregg’s death.

The 54-year-old — who was recently axed from RHOA — declared she was “disappointed” to hear NeNe bashing her for missing Gregg’s funeral, reported TMZ. Gregg tragically passed away on September 1 after a lengthy battle with colon cancer.

Bailey added she and the Glee alum “just aren’t close like they used to be,” but thought they frenemies were “cool” because she did show up to NeNe’s lounge to spend some quality time with her.

The Sharknado 4 actress said “she hasn’t considered NeNe a close friend in a long time,” but still has “respect and love” for her, noting “she’s not sure what more she could have done following Gregg’s death” outside of the text and flowers she sent.

OK! reported NeNe stopped by radio station V-103 in Atlanta on Wednesday, October 27, and spilled Bailey didn’t bother to show up to Gregg’s “repast,” but resurfaced days later. “She did come like a week later after everything was done,” the Linnethia Lounge owner said. “She came by my lounge.”

The 53-year-old widow added that she did feel the love from “every Housewife in the entire franchise” though as they attempted to reach out to her. “Kim Zolciak has definitely texted me since Gregg has passed, and she has stayed in touch since then,” she added. “So I would say that we are OK.”

Zolciak and Leakes were besties before becoming enemies. The Don’t Be Tardy star and Kenya Moore set aside their differences with Leakes and have been there to supply comfort in her trying times.

Leakes added it’s “hard to explain Housewives,” comparing it to “a dysfunctional family.”

“But they all reached out,” the I Dream of NeNe star declared. “They all sent flowers or something.”
