“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes is no stranger to controversy. In fact, she’s had her fair share of feuds on the show. And while she was able to mend things with Porsha Williams, Tanya Sam, and Eva Marcille, things are still unresolved with Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey.

While the door isn’t necessarily closed on Cynthia, things have only gotten worse between NeNe and Kenya.

Interestingly enough, NeNe took some time off from the feuds to hire a lawyer. And it looks like she’s ready to take someone to court.

      @girl whatever…BLOOP-A-DE-BLOOP
      EXACTLY and I won’t watch just because of how they trying to do NeNe. It makes me so angry that they show her in the previews and don’t even bring her on, just to hike the ratings

        I want watch either, NeNe is the star of the show, get rid of Kenya and Kandi, Kandi is boring she brings nothing to the show, nothing. Mario is the worst

          That’s the problem the nasty b-tch thinks she is the show, but forgot the show made her and open other opportunities for that ungrateful b-tch, she needs to learn to be a better wife, mother, and grandmother. Raggedy b-tch.

            You’re the only raggedy one up in this motherfucka! I can’t stand how you Misogynistic a-s gay men don’t mind fixing your mouths and fingers to talk sh-t about a black woman. Y’all never keep that same energy with straight men! But y’all get real tough on these housewives threads. You’re slow as f-ck if you think RHOA made NeNe! If that’s the case, where are all the other girls from season one? Why are they not as successful as NeNe?! NeNe put RHOA on the map! Even Andy Cohen has acknowledged this multiple times. The highest ratings this season are only the episodes with NeNe on them! Y’all can’t stand it when a black woman knows her worth and demands respect. F-ck out of here! And while you’re on here saying what NeNe needs to do, you need to learn how to be a better person! What kind of man comes on a blog to bash a woman?! Gross!

          February 6, 2020 at 12:05 pm

          @Brenda Hammonds, please tell me what NeNe is bringing to the show. Other that violating a camera man, wanting to put hands on people, points her hands in people face then get piss when they return the favor, cussing up a storm. She literally has zero stroyline. Before the season started, and on the last reunion NeNe was angry at all her castmates & refused to speak with them. Then when the season started that dummy realized that their cannot be a RHOA with a cast of 1. She had to eat crow and make amends.

            I honestly wonder if some of you lack common sense. It’s like y’all are too thick to understand that everyone on a reality show is typecast. Nene is a villain. Kenya is a villain. Porsha is the one everyone loves and roots for (underdog). Kandi is the bone collector. Cynthia is the passive one who struggles to speak her mind. Tanya is the bubbly one. Marlo is the sh-t starter. And Eva is the nice nasty novice. They all get paid well to be confrontational on a reality show that gets millions of viewers. All those things you just said Nene did are some of the main things people were talking about on social media. Nene attacking the cameraman was literally the highlight of the last season. People like you don’t even realize that your constant need to talk about Nene is why she’s rich now. Nene is currently all these girls’ storylines this season. She’s all Kenya talks about in her interviews. And the drama doesn’t happen this season until she comes around. How are you mad at these women for doing their jobs and entertaining you? They all fight and make up with each other so they can stay on the show and keep the check. You think Kenya really wanted to be friends with Porsha? Girl goodbye. You think these women are real friends in real life? How naive you must be. This is a job. And Nene does her job very well. This is why her episodes have been the highest-rated this season. Stop taking things so seriously and enjoy being entertained. Some of y’all are way too sensitive for reality television.

            Yeah that’s the truth “enough”please stop calling people out everybody on here is stating their opinion shut up. Anyway Nene is a horse head b-tch!!trying so hard to look like Kim and candie is a instigator I want never talk around kandi.

          • Enough!

            February 6, 2020 at 4:40 pm

            Jacquelyn Smith I’ll say what the f-ck I want just like you bitter a-s people are doing on here now. Y’all have no problem getting on the internet and talking sh-t about people y’all don’t know but can’t take it when someone drags your a-s. Typical. You’re talking a lot of sh-t about Nene’s looks when you probably ain’t a beauty queen your d-mn self. Come for me again and I’ll give you what you’re looking for.

          Nene I have been watching you for 6 years. You do bring drama and that is what you get paid for. But…. Nene you lie and have always been jealous of Kemya Moore. From the time she came to house wives you have been jealous. She did what you couldn’t do anymore( which was keeping the audience attention. You need to stop disrespecting your husband. Whether or not you are not together, you are still married. And you need to stop making people think that you got it all. And you dont. Tell your boy to get a job. That’s what you can do best. Thank God for what you have. And do your job. And you ought to leave that court case ALONE!!!!

          Nene is a hot mess and all over the place. Once we get some fame and money she’s above everyone else.
          You are hiring an attorney because….
          When Gregg cheated on her she separated herself from the negativity of her marriage. The same ppl that she’s arguing with are the same people that NeNe has belittled at some point during the history of RHOA but these ppl stood by her through her divorce. A grown woman spending millions on what?
          She’s getting publicity because we are commenting.
          When you live in a glass house, be careful with the stones you throw. Ijs. Karma is a b.

      February 6, 2020 at 5:36 pm

      I’m not comprehending why some wont embrace it’s a reality show that only stays relevant with ratings. If there were no confrontation it would be no show. Koudous to RHOA for keeping the checks coming in from Bravo.

      The cast have to keep it down and dirty to keep the ratings up. In the meantime do what’s neccessary to create drama in most cases and try to create scenes to act like the want to squash the drama…. but reignites it somewhere down the line for ratings.

      Come on everyone no drama no Real House shows for Bravo.

        Nene has always been a big loud mouth, boisterous uncouth, always up in somebody’s face, not about nothing person. She’s nothing but a bully. Never liked her from day one on the show. Bravo should have booted her a long time ago. The other ladies quarrel and can be messy but at least they act like ladies not always trying to fight. Just verbal jabs. Good riddance Nene. NO CLASS!!

        • Girl Whatever

          February 5, 2020 at 8:52 pm

          What show are you even watching? Porsha has gotten into three fights on the show. Kenya threatened Phaedra while she was pregnant. Kandi nearly fought Cynthia’s sister. Kenya pulled out Kim Field’s chair while she was sitting to bully and intimidate her. And that’s just a few instances I can think of from the top of my head. Just say you don’t like NeNe and go. But you’re not about to get on here and act like these other women are any better than her. They really aren’t. The only one who isn’t violent is Cynthia and well she kicked Porsha in the stomach once when Porsha ran up. Just saying. Oh and Eva hasn’t done anything but she’s always pregnant and had no problem calling black women nappy heads on camera. So there’s that.

            NeNe is one of the most popular housewives. She’s one of the most followed housewives on social media. The season premiere ratings flopped without her. And the episodes she’s been on this season are the most watched. No one is outshining her. I think this is the real reason y’all hate her.

    None is a insecure millionaire who puts on airs as a big bad B. The only thing big and bad is her body. She wants everyone to only have her as a friend. In reality she is lonely, inmature and very loud person. She is only loved by Greg and her deadbeat son. Money changed her whole attutude just like Wendy Williams said. The old Nene is lost, even though she was ghetto, she was 10 times better than the weeping new bully we see now.Her clothes are questionable too. She does not dress nice due to her weight. Someone needs to get into her closet and get rid of those camafouge pants today. I hope she is fired because her way of solving issues are old as she is. On to the next and best image of a black strong woman of quality.

      Stale read. Y’all watch this show so much that a lot of you are trying so hard to get on these blogs and try to read these women. But remember, they get paid to read and throw shade. You do it for free. NeNe lives a full life. She has many fans, friends, and family members who love her. Even if this is her last season, she will walk away from this show wealthy. Money changes everybody. No one moves the same after they get a lot of money. Anyone who tells you differently is a liar. Wendy Williams can’t talk either because she’s changed a lot as well since the money started stacking up. Now she’s on TV telling black people we shouldn’t protest the National Anthem and to leave if we don’t like America. Oh and NeNe is far from a bully. NeNe never comes for anyone unprovoked.

    Bye Nene‼️ Karma‼️ Bragging and hating on children calls up a force you, money and no attorney can deal WITH!!! You load is being and will always return to your on head and door step❓ Gregg better distance himself and retire a healed man least your association is going to cause him to keep getting in your evil and next time seven times as worse as the first‼️ Real house wives of Atlanta can cut or fire who their want! Plus you are a high risk to cause someone to sue the network for you injuring someone ‼️ No one should even consider your character you are vulgar and a nasty immoral person and cruel to innocent children who are relative you❗️

      This comment literally makes no sense. You have no idea who she’s suing or what this is even about. And most of the people on this show are rude and nasty. That’s literally the whole point of the Real Housewives franchise. They get paid to fight and bicker. Don’t demand for NeNe to have more morals than you when you willingly watch a show about women catfighting.

    Reading some of these comments is sooo sad!!! We are really judging people based off TV shows. We only see what’s on TV we have no idea what is really going on in their lives and I am sure that a lot parts are removed from the show. There are better ways that you can express yourself politely instead of breaking someone down by talking about there kids, clothing or weight. That just sad, ridiculous and disappointing to read. Find something better to do then criticize people based on a show!!

    The main ones calling Nene nasty and all these names just prove they aren’t much better. The irony. I’m assuming most of them are Kenya fans. That’s usually how it goes. They have so much to say about Nene but are silent on Kenya’s history of bullying. Hypocrites.

      Omg 😳 that is correct!! As if Kenya is a saint, her history on the show is no better than Ne Ne, but what’s funny is that everyone is assuming that it’s Kenya…. it could be production you never know!!

        @izzy I agree. It’s really sad. I’m just reading and shaking my head. We need a reality show for comments and reply’s. I bet the show will have good ratings!😅

    Guarantee you this has to do with the #metoo movement. I bet something has happened to her like she’s been harassed or assaulted or both.

    Well said. Nene has acted inappropriately, and can be a bully. However, they all have shown violent tendencies. Kenya is a liar and will drag her own family for a check, all of her storylines are contrived. Cynthia is boring as hell and only interesting when she is feuding with NeNe.Eva has colorisim issues and is boring. I still like Kandi but she needs a new storyline. Pirsha is funny but storyline serms contrived. Tanya and Marlo have added something new I like them. Light shade and style.

    Kenya need to go, these ladies do know how to have a good time without Kenya on this show. I have watched from the very first episode of (rhoa). They had good times.
