The “real housewife” who was once a victim of domestic violence herself told Essence.com that Evelyn needed to keep her and Chad’s incident out the public eye.
“The only advice I would have for Evelyn is to be quiet. I wouldn’t say anything else. To me, it makes matters worse and I would be quiet and try to it handle privately.”
Although NeNe hasn’t spoken to her fellow “wife” reality star, she felt the need to reach out to her but wasn’t sure if it was the right time.
“I wanted to reach out to her, but I didn’t,” said the Bravo housewife. “I feel like when people are going through something I’m confused about whether I should say something or not, because so many people are saying stuff to them.”
NeNe has extended her hand to Evelyn whenever she’s ready to talk even though they aren’t really close friends and don’t talk on the regular.
“I don’t talk to Evelyn regularly, but I do know her. We do text if we need something from another.”
I’m loving the sisterhood NeNe is extending to Evelyn during this difficult time! I somewhat agree with NeNe that Evelyn needs to chill out a bit and stop doing every single interview that is thrown her way. Domestic violence is very serious and something that needs to be addressed, but like NeNe, I really think it could be kept out the media just a bit. This is not the time for her to capitalize off something so tragic that hundreds, even thousands of women suffer from everyday but don’t get the opportunity to have the entire world empathize with her and some don’t even make it out alive. I think Ev should just take NeNe’s advice on this one. She’s been in the public eye enough with this whole situation.
