NeNe Leakes called out Bravo and Andy Cohen after she left RHOA.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum NeNe Leakes had a controversial departure. She claimed she wasn’t being treated fairly behind the scenes. In fact, she began to be vocal during the contract negotiation process. She took to her YouTube channel to discuss this with fans. And she accused Bravo of treating her differently than her non-black peers. For NeNe, she didn’t think it was fair that she was never given her own spinoff show. She alleged that Bravo never gave any of the black women from RHOA their own shows, only specials. Meanwhile, Kim Zolciak had her own show for years. NeNe said Kim secured her show after she quit in the middle of the season. So it wasn’t fair in her opinion.
NeNe also said that nonblack housewives had been able to have explosive moments and not be penalized. She rubbed producers the wrong way when she got physical with a cameraman. At the time, she was upset because he went into her closet after she told production not to film there.
Fans rallied behind NeNe Leakes after she departed RHOA.
After producers allegedly told NeNe they took issue with this, NeNe told her supporters that this was proof of hypocrisy. To her knowledge, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice was not punished for pushing Andy Cohen. This happened at a past reunion.
When NeNe decided to leave RHOA, she complained about being told she would appear in fewer episodes. So she figured it was time to walk away. She would eventually accuse Andy and the network of racism. Some RHOA fans believe that doing this has hurt her chances of ever returning.
While NeNe did have a lot of support, others called NeNe out on social media. Some even accused her of being too arrogant to be enjoyable on the show.
Interestingly enough, NeNe made it clear that she doesn’t think she’s arrogant at all.
