The messages also included references to ongoing drama between Leakes and fellow cast members, whom she called her “co-workers” earlier this month.
During a recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the comedian lashed out at the cast for going into her closet. In the teaser for Bravo’s reunion special, a then-pregnant Williams accused Leakes of grabbing her during the conflict.
Within minutes of Williams’ post, Leakes posted screenshots of congratulatory messages that she claimed to have sent in response to the arrival of the newborn.
“Today your life changed! Congratulations!” the message read. “No matter where we are in our relationship, being a mother is a true blessing and only women can bring life into the world!”
Leakes accused Williams of trying to call her out to promote her newly announced spin-off, Porsha’s Having a Baby. “I know you need viewers to tune into your 3 episode commercial, which is why you doing the most!” she wrote in the post.
The messages were removed from both reality TV stars’ social media accounts. The three-part Season 11 reunion special airs on Bravo beginning April 7.
