After leaving RHOA, NeNe Leakes asked her supporters to boycott Bravo.
NeNe Leakes had a controversial exit from “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” During her final season on the show, she felt ganged up on. She was able to make peace with Porsha Williams. However, she got into it pretty terribly with Eva Marcille, Kenya Moore, and later Kandi Burruss. NeNe said she felt she was treated unfairly by the other women. However, she claimed she had even bigger issues behind the scenes. In her opinion, she was being treated differently than her non-black peers.
In particular, NeNe questioned why the Atlanta cast wasn’t able to secure their own standalone spinoff show like Kim Zolciak. And when she received pushback for getting physical with the cameraman, she claimed that “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice wasn’t punished for pushing Andy Cohen.
Eventually, NeNe went on to accuse Andy and Bravo of being racist. After making her comments, it remains to be seen if NeNe will ever make her return to the network. At this point, Andy doesn’t seem to be open to discussing her when asked in his interviews.
Did NeNe Leakes throw some shade after the ratings for Kandi Burruss’ show went viral?
Interestingly enough, Kandi has her own series based on her OLG restaurant. “Kandi & the Gang” recently premiered on Bravo. And it came on after the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” reunion. On the show, Kandi and Todd Tucker open up about the difficulties they are facing with their restaurant business. They are having drama with employees, plus they have had some issues with inspections.
Regardless, the couple is determined to completely turn things around. And this hasn’t stopped OLG from getting a lot of business, with lines even wrapping around the corner for the soul food cuisine.
Ratings for the series premiere came in at 491,000 live viewers. Some “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans thought these numbers were dismal in comparison to “Porsha’s Family Matters” bringing in 869,000 live viewers one episode in.
After the ratings went viral and fans made their comparisons on Twitter, Kandi and Porsha began to trend. Someone then tweeted that they decided not to watch the show. And they believed the accusations NeNe made to be true. In response to this, NeNe thanked the person.
She then penned a tweet that many suspected was shade about Kandi’s ratings.
NeNe wrote, “Listen…YOU ALREADY KNOW ?.”
In the past when NeNe and Kandi had issues, NeNe wasn’t convinced that Kandi brought much to RHOA. And she said that what would be fair is to bring back Phaedra Parks because she feels Kandi has been running from Phaedra for years.
