NeNe Leakes claims she is “blacklisted” after launching a boycott against Bravo following her exit from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
NeNe Leakes claims she is “blacklisted” after launching a boycott against Bravo following her exit from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The show OG is responding to supporters of her plight since speaking out against the network that made her a household name. In wake of NeNe’s departure, she hasn’t had much of anything nice to say about her former peers. As the show prepares for season 14, NeNe thinks she has been ousted from the franchise she helped put on the map.
NeNe was once hailed as the highest-paid housewife across all franchises. Bethenny Frankel recently named NeNe among the Mount Rushmore of OG housewives. But her fall from grace was disappointing for many show fans who grew accustomed to her presence on RHOA. After season 12, NeNe announced her exit which she claimed was over failed contract negotiations at the time. However, shortly after making the big announcement, NeNe went on a tirade against Bravo accusing them of racism and discrimination.
Since then, NeNe hasn’t been seen on television despite teasing her openness to return during interviews. Most recently, NeNe responded to one fan on Twitter who claimed that “everything you stated has come to pass.” The fan went on to accuse Bravo of “trying to save face by having certain talent publicly refute your claims.” They also claimed the other housewives “are given bones to stay quiet,” about NeNe’s claims. NeNe responded to the fan saying “They always Blacklist you when you tell the truth.” NeNe was seemingly responding to how Bravo has responded to her since she launched a boycott against them.
In a separate tweet, NeNe made her allegations clear. “Stop harassing me, my business and my family! Stop having me followed, stop blacklisting black women for speaking the truth, stop paying off attorneys to not file discrimination claims!” NeNe wrote. With Kandi Burruss starring in her latest spin-off Kandi & The Gang, the RHOA veteran has been asked about NeNe’s allegations against Bravo and she said she doesn’t agree. Kandi referenced NeNe’s past actions while filming RHOA and how she allegedly bragged about being the highest-paid housewife on the show. “You can’t brag about being paid the most out of anybody and then say that they’re not treating you right,” Kandi quipped. Considering NeNe’s recent Twitter response, it looks like she and her fans are aware of Kandi’s thoughts and think she’s being used to “save face” for Bravo.
NeNe has maintained few friendships since leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha Williams and Marlo Hampton have been seen hanging out at NeNe’s lounge. However, NeNe has spoken out against Cynthia Bailey, Kandi, and others she used to appear on the show with. As the ladies prepare for the season 14 premiere, NeNe will have to watch from the sidelines once again. Season 14 will be the second season without NeNe and her good friend Marlo has helped to reignite the drama and stir the pot.
