When The Real Housewives of Atlanta recently broke Bravo records by scoring over 4.5 million viewers, Melissa Gorgawas all about congratulating the ladies, especially the show's biggest draw, NeNe Leakes. But TheReal Housewives of New Jerseystar's wording is raising some questions — is Melissa throwing shade at one of her own costars?
Melissa took to her Twitter to send the Hotlanta gals her shout-out.
"Wow! Congrats @Bravotv & #RHOA over 4.5 million viewers!! You gotta give it to @NeNeLeakes still in there & never throwing products at us," Melissa wrote.
Her followers quickly picked up on her comment about product-placement and wondered if it was meant to be a dig at someone else. While tt's true that NeNe rarely talks about any of her side businesses on the show, we can't say the same thing about the New Jersey Housewives.
Kathy Wakile spent most of Season 5 filling up cannolis for the cameras and, of course, the most obvious target, Teresa Giudice, is constantly plugging her products, like Fabellini wine and Milania Hair Care.
Still, some of Melissa's own followers pointed out that she's also guilty of promoting her own products — specifically, her relationship advice book, Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage.
Other fans chimed in that maybe people were reading too much into the comment and that Melissa was just giving NeNe a compliment.
Do you guys think Melissa was throwing shade or are peeps overreacting? Share your opinions in the comments section below!
