*Well it seems the drama continues between old rivals Wendy Williams and NeNe Leakes, which apparently resurfaced after something NeNe tweeted last week.
“Just saw a list of all the new reality shows that r coming soon! Everybody is a reality star now! WOW! I gotta go,” NeNe wrote.
That observation didn’t seem to sit too well with Wendy who didn’t hesitate to call NeNe out on what seems to be an enlarged ego since her claim to claim from “RHOA.”
“Everybody is a reality star now. In case you’ve noticed, people watch more reality shows than sitcoms,” said Wendy. One might suggest that she was referring to NeNe’s NBC show “The New Normal,” which was cancelled after one season.
“You should have just kept your mouth closed,” said Wendy.
Well, NeNe vowed to do just that by staying away from any future chats on the Wendy’s platform.
A Twitter follower asked NeNe if she would return to the Wendy’s couch in which she responded “No,” and that she had no interest in doing so.
These two women have beefed in the past. Back in March Wendy made some comments about NeNe’s relationship with Gregg Leakes that rubbed NeNe the wrong way.
“@WendyWilliams don’t know SHIT about my relationship!” NeNe tweeted.
As for their recent rift, NeNe said she’s not sure why Wendy decided to criticize her tweet.
When asked what happened between the two, she wrote: “That’s a good question! I have no idea.”
Watch Wendy take her digs at NeNe (about 11 mins in):
*Rapper and hip hop mogul Jay-Z apparently hasn’t let go of his beef with actor Robert De Niro.
Earlier today Jay-Z paid a visit to Power 105.1 in New York. During the interview they asked Jay about his feelings on De Niro. According to TMZ, their bad blood stems from last year when De Niro reportedly dressed Jay down because of unreturned phone calls.
But instead of throwing blows and jabs at the actor, when asked about De Niro Jay-Z simply stated, “I treat people based on who they are…who they REALLY are.”
*He continued, “It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone has to be respectful.”

Jay-Z also showed up at Hot 97 to hang out with Angie Martinez. While there he discussed the Magna Carta album, Blue Ivy, the Obamas and Dame Dash:
*Fat Joe was recently in headlines for tax evasion.
In an interview with MTV’s Sway on “Rap Fix Live,” the rapper shared his thoughts about finances. He also discussed Chris Lighty’s untimely death along with his reconciliation with 50 Cent.
“You gotta understand, we hire guys who are supposed have Harvard degrees to take care of us,” he said. ”The one thing I can say is, all the time you see artists, the first thing they did to you when you caught money was introduce you to a bunch of fancy guys with bow ties who are gonna take care of your money and all that and then you always see an artist or a celebrity or somebody like that going down for it and these guys never go down for it. But we didn’t go to Harvard for that.”
He went on, opening up about how he grew up poor and giving props to Chris for helping him land his first record deal.
Joe spoke about the suspicion surrounding Chris’ death.
“I don’t wanna offend nobody, but I think it’s 2013. I think — a guy so important like that — they weren’t gonna overlook if he committed suicide. See, none of us want to think that our friends or someone we love would commit suicide,” he said. “What kind of a lawsuit would that be for a guy as rich as Chris Lighty who did so much? What kind of lawsuit would that be for the NYPD? I don’t think they’re gonna fumble the ball on that.”
Chris Lighty’s death was also an integral force in squashing the beef between 50 and Joe.
“He had a lot of respect for Chris Lighty, I had a lot of respect. We went over there and we did the tribute together,” he said. “So when a man stick out his hand for me like ‘Yo it’s for Chris, it’s peace,’ it’s peace. And I don’t anticipate ever having a problem again with him in my life. Because once I give you my word and I give you my hand, it’s love.”
*The Game is man enough to admit when he’s been wrong.
Since releasing some Jay-Z disses, the rapper realizes that he’s ruined several chances to collaborate with one of Hip Hop’s greatest.
In an interview with Vibe, he fessed up, saying that dream record will never get made.
“I think I f***ed that up early in my career,” Game told Vibe. “I’m probably one of the only cats that went at Jay-Z’s neck and had a career after.”
Game has had his share of beefs with artists like 50 Cent. But the one he started with Jay has caused him problems even at home.
“I remember having a real altercation with the mother of my children,” he said. “She was like, ‘You don’t know what you’re doing. He’s going to come back and we’re not going to be able to survive.’ Jay and Beyonce are a powerful couple, they will turn your whole family against you.”
The woman is always right … sometimes.
Well, since that opportunity appears to be lost, he’s thankful that those mean mean lyrics to Jay-Z at the very least caught his attention.
*Drama seems to follow Tamar Braxton wherever she goes. In the latest bit of cattiness, Claudia Jordan says she ain’t got beef with the singer, but for some reason it could be the other way around.
“It’s a one-sided beef. Before I did ‘Tiny Tonight’ I had never seen The Braxtons or whatever show she had. I had never heard her music,” the model told Power 105.1′s “The Breakfast Club” on Monday.
She even noted that she’d been warned about Tamar’s over the top personality, but she had no idea it’d be way too much.
“She was cool the first day of rehearsals,” the model said, adding that things quickly went down hill from their initial meeting. “The first day to the second the vibe just changed tremendously to the point that,where in the audience—I kept my composure—but the girls were like, ‘Way to keep it classy Claudia, we love you!’ They felt bad for me.”
Claudia went on and on about how she sort of lost respect for the reality television star after she shared her standards of a relationship.
