Most reality stars have a tough time making that transition from being a regular reality TV star to becoming a bona fide mogul and Hollywood celebrity. However, a few are able to make that jump and no other reality star has done it like NeNe Leakes, who went from being the breakout star on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” to becoming a full-blown entertainment mogul. Although many embrace the reality stars who are able to cross over, some veteran celebrities haven’t and that seems to be the case with comedian Luenell, who blasted Leakes for making her way into the world of comedy.
Yesterday, Luenell shared a poster for Leakes’ upcoming “One Woman Show” comedy tour stop at The Comedy House in South Carolina. In the post, Luenell blasted Leakes, saying that Leakes isn’t a real comic and that Leakes hasn’t paid enough dues to earn that title or perform at the respected venue.
“Hello my good people….So…I am playing this club this weekend, right now….The COMEDY HOUSE in Colombia, S Carolina, and on my way 2 the ladies room I c This! Now y’all take this Any way you want to Bur, I have dedicated 26 years of HARD WORK 2 b able to call myself a Comic. It is a very elite club that I am Extremely proud 2 belong to. Most of the successful Comics you see on the grind today, touring have been putting in hard work, missing their children’s birthdays, graduations, track meets etc. for years and had to deal w/and work thru the guilt and pain of that on a daily basis. So I just find it Ironic that these days, it seems like any Reality Show celebrity or celebrity of Any type who wants to pop up and call themselves a Comic CAN … but a Comic can’t just pop up and as easily get a Show! Anybody can just walk into our profession, grab $$$ and when they get Tired … they just stop and go back to the comfort of television. If I sound salty, it’s because i Am! I am not afraid 2 speak MY truth but believe me, I am Not alone n my thoughts. Well anyway…. I suppose that’s the great thing about living in America, you can get money in which ever way you want to so, with that being said I hope my good sister here has a great weekend and a successful run … that is, until she gets bored or tired,” Luenell captioned the photo.
Well, it didn’t take long for word to spread about Luenell’s scathing shade to Leakes, as well as reality TV stars in general, nor did it take long for Leakes to see the post as well. As expected, Leakes wasn’t happy about Luenell’s read and since she’s never been one to bite her tongue, Leakes proceeded to write a scathing response of her own for the comic legend.
