RuPaul gives NeNe a pass on ‘queen’ gay-baiting

Add this share

NeNe Leakes has made it a bit of a thing to gay bait on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” this season, dismissing one sidekick as a queen and suggesting the ex of a castmate is a queen not man enough to stand up to his wife.

But RuPaul, the queen of queens, dismissed any notion that Leakes' language was anything but fun during an episode of “Watch What Happens Live” with Bravo's king of queens, Andy Cohen.

“Everyone is offended by everything. What's wrong with y'all people? Don't be offended by everything. You have to work that stuff out with your therapist but don't visit it on me,” RuPaul quips. (Watch his entire statement above.)

How fitting that RuPaul gives a pass to Leakes with Porsha Stewart sitting by his side. She's been dishing out homophobic “Housewives” rants all season, at least when she's not shopping in the gayborhood.
