NeNe Leakes Gives Advice to Evelyn Lozada About Chad Johnson Scandal

If there’s any reality TV star that knows about controversy it’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes. The “RHOA” fire starter has endured everything from a nasty public divorce to high-profile fallouts with friends. And now, Leakes is ready to share some hard-earned wisdom about controversy with reality TV’s latest lightning rod of drama, Evelyn Lozada.

In an interview with Essence, Leakes discussed Lozada’s current domestic dispute scandal, involving her soon-to-be ex-husband, Chad Johnson, who head butted her during a heated argument.

And according to Leakes, she only has one bit of advice for Loazada – stay quiet.

“The only advice I would have for Evelyn is to be quiet,” NeNe said in a recent interview. “I wouldn’t say anything else. To me, it makes matters worse and I would be quiet and try to it handle privately.”

Leakes, who suffered an abusive relationship of her own, hasn’t spoken to Lozada about her abuse, but shared that she wasn’t sure if it’s the right time to bring up Loazada’s scandal.

“I wanted to reach out to her, but I didn’t,” said the Bravo housewife. “I feel like when people are going through something I’m confused about whether I should say something or not, because so many people are saying stuff to them.”

But despite her uncertainty, and the fact that she and Lozada aren’t really close, Leakes explained that she will help Lozada in any way she can if she needs her.

“I don’t talk to Evelyn regularly, but I do know her. We do text if we need something from one another,” said Leakes.

And Leakes isn’t alone. Check out some other stars who’ve offered their support to Lozada below. – nicholas robinson

    I really feel for the both of them. Her if its true and him if its not. However, something in that water is dry. Evelyn was waaaay too quick to capitalize for things to be that simple. Seems that there’s a little more to being “about this life” than we know.
    So watch, mark my words, Chad lost everything, but if he complies, he’ll get it all back at the expense of selling his soul and looking like he has lost his ever-loving mind i.e. Chris Freakin’ Brown and Kanye West!

    You ain’t gotta like Nene or her ‘Attitude’ but if I were Evelyn, I would heed Nene’s advice right now. Because all Ev is doing right now is making herself look bad. She looks like an opportunist and just couldn’t wait to get a divorce once they got married. She has a history of doing so and if she even wants to remotely save face then she is going to have to ‘be quiet’. Take the advice Evelyn.
