Of All The People To Apologize To, Raven-Symoné Chose Nene Leakes?

Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 9.57.07 AMIf we had hours upon hours of time to spend rehashing history, we’d detail every single time Raven-Symoné opened her mouth and offended someone. Suffice it to say, it’s happened a lot and, ironically, the one time she apologized for her words it was to someone who should’ve been able to take it: Nene Leakes.

If you recall, we weren’t exactly here for Nene’s crocodile tears after she accused the women of The View of being “mean girls” and looking down on her when she appeared on the talk show panel November 17. In a followup appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Nene specifically called out “a couple of people on that panel who were very shady” and when asked if Raven was one of them, Nene said “probably.”

Now in an interview with E! News Raven sort of half-heartedly apologized to Nene for how things went down, though she’s not exactly sure what even went down.

“I feel sad for her. She came to my house party,” Raven said. “I don’t understand what happend. But that’s her right if she felt that way, just like our opinion. That’s her opinion. Sorry girl. My bad.”

We’re guessing news of the feud was literally news to Raven who, despite being dragged on Twitter nearly every week, claimed she doesn’t pay attention to negative commentary — especially when it comes to her personal opinions.

“I’m in a job where it’s about opinions, and it’s about my opinions on certain things. Everyone gets scrutinized for their opinion, even though this is America and we’re supposed to have free speech. You still get scrutinized. You still get penalized. And I think the best way that I can handle it is, say my peace, stand behind my truth, and move on myself. I don’t read comments when they’re negative and nasty.”

She must not read a lot at all then. We do hope this apology business becomes a trend though.

    I really want to know what is wrong with her…she’s more bizarre to me than Ben Carson or Stacey Dash

    When someone adds “my bad” to an apology, it’s usually not a real apology.

    You can tell she was throwing indirect shade when discussing NeNe. The way she said, “sorry girl, my bad” you can tell it was like “Whatever, I guess”. For her other comments, she is entitled to feel that way, but I will never agree with her opinions.

      At that point, yes…..but what was Nene addressing about shade on the show?

    She has made disrespectful comments about black people, so she should apologize to black people collectively. Her statements to NeNe Leakes are interesting. I disagree with her on many issues. We certainly need to move forward and believe in advancing integrity and the dignity of our black community.

      Raven isn’t important enough to me to demand an apology. She got lost somewhere along the way and perhaps she will find herself someday As for me…….I simply dismiss her.

        I understand where you’re coming from. I only hope that she can wake up in the future.

          Do you really, truly care? Raven is one of those that we have no time to babysit. As a long time fan of THE VIEW, I was wondering what she would add to the show anyway….and she hasn’t added a thing except weird fashion and unbelievable hairdos. hahahah You win some, you lose some and some, just get washed out.

            If she refuses to wake up, we can move on. Some folks have been brainwashed for years until they woke up. I’m a optimist by nature. Yet, if Raven Symone wants to continue to promote disrespect and deception, then we can move on and keep it moving. That’s my philosophy.

        I’ve said it before, this is what happens when corporations raise children.

    I watched both shows and I, for the life of me, couldn’t understand how Nene was treated badly????Her skin must be as thin as her buddy’s Trump. She showed a house with no furniture and then said that she didn’t want to give the thieves a peek for stealing (in a nutshell) Well then, just show the outside of the house. It looked rather silly to me but then that’s really my opinion of Nene. Anyway, I never saw one thing they did that was shady towards her. But she always has to be a drama queen so perhaps she made it up.

    Daaaaamn! Is Raven deliberately trying to make herself unattractive? that’s not even a Halloween do….damn…that’s all I got.

    I watched the episode, Raven was rolling her eyes and mean mugging Nene. I’m not sure why apologizing to Nene is so out there. She was a guest on the show, when you invite someone to be on your show you engage them. Unless of course it is someone with actual clout. This was a reality star promoting her stint on broadway. Apologizing is what a professional does

    I will go out of my way to make no time at all for Raven in 2016. I think that she says things for attention at this point. It didn’t begin that way but now she is just going with it.

    She is THAT girl from school. She doesn’t need money but she needs what money can’t buy.

    And The View loves it b/c good or bad, at least people are talking about their tired show.
