Wendy Osefo Addresses "The Eddie Rumors" Coming Up in RHOP Season 6

Wendy Osefo addressed "The Eddie Rumors" coming up moment from the teaser during a recent interview with ET. "I am not immune to the fact that we are public figures, right? This is not a 'woe is me' conversation. When you're a public figure, people go and talk about you," she said. "People go and lie about you, and it is what it is. And I'm OK with that. I know what I signed up for. But there is, for me, a level of expectation that I felt we have within our circle. Especially when it's a salacious blog that has also spread vicious rumors about her and her family."

She went on to say that she felt like Gizelle was "repeating a lie." "I'm not mad at it because we know our truth. And I'm confident in my marriage. It doesn't matter," Wendy explained. "But in the same token, you have a level of expectation from your friends and you don't think that your friends will ever give life to a lie. If anything, they will quell it because they're your friends."
