*During a recent appearance on Jenny McCarthy‘s SiriusXM show Friday, NeNe Leakes fired shots at fellow reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump, claiming the Beverly Hills housewife stole the idea to start her PUMP restaurant.
Let NeNe tell it and PUMP was all her idea, which she claims to have shared with Lisa.
“She knows that we have a little something, something she did to me. I’ve never really addressed it,” Leakes tells McCarthy in the clip above. “She did some real foul s— to me.”
NeNe then reveals that a few years ago, when she and her husband Gregg were living in Los Angeles, she wanted to open a bar in West Hollywood.
“We would ride down that West Hollywood area where all the gay bars are — and I have a large gay fan base — and I kept thinking ‘it would be so cool if I had a bar right in here somewhere.’”
Leakes explains to host Jenney how she stumbled on a space that was “empty and kind of raggedy-looking and torn down,” but thought it would be perfect.
That’s when she made a call to restaurateur Vanderpump for advice.
“She said, ‘Oh darling, darling, it’s a piece of crap and they’re charging so much for it darling,’” Leakes said. “She talked me off of it and then went and got it.”
“That’s so f—ed up,” she added.
Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR is featured on the Bravo series “Vanderpump Rules,” and she opened PUMP in 2014. She also owns Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills.
Nene says she has not addressed Lisa directly about feeling dissed by her power move.
“Now when she sees me, she’s like ‘Hi NeNe,” Leakes explained.
