A reality TV spin-off, without some behind-the-scenes drama, just doesn’t exist these days. And thanks to Real Housewives of Atlanta’s spin-off special, I Dream Of NeNe (starring NeNe Leakes) the drama has ensued. On Friday, we learned that the Georgia Peach has been hit with a lawsuit by a woman that was initially hired to be her wedding planner for the big day. The woman’s name is Tiffany Cook and she owns a company called Dream Design Weddings & Events. So where’s the beef?
According to the lawsuit, Tiffany claims that she was left high and dry after she was paid a retainer by NeNe. And allegedly Nene was in breach of contract with her. How so? Check out the court documents below:
We’ve also done some digging to find out a bit more about Tiffany. According to her bio, she’s been planning weddings for over 20 years and reality TV isn’t necessarily new for her or her business. She’s been on six seasons of We TV’s “Platinum Weddings.” Some of her celeb clients include Ameriie & fiance Len Nicholson, some NFL players and larger corporations. And guess who else? Porsha and Kordell Stewart were one of her clients, which makes this a bit more interesting, right? Anywho, after news hit about the lawsuit, NeNe responded on twitter, writing:

And in more NeNe Leakes news, it looks like she and Wendy Williams are no longer on good terms. You’ll recall that NeNe has been a guest on Wendy’s show a number of times, but as of late, things must be going sour between both larger than life personalities. Why? We suspect it’s because Wendy has been critical of NeNe, voicing her two cents on her show during her ‘Hot Topics’ segment.
During a recent twitter chat, NeNe said that she’d never go on Wendy’s show again, nor does she know ‘what happened’ to their friendship.
May I say this? I can imagine that’s it’s tricky for these two women to have a ‘real’ friendship without there being a conflict of interest. The theme of Wendy’s show is ‘Say It Like You Mean It!’, which I’m sure is hard to do when you’re friends with a celeb that is an ongoing ‘Hot Topic’ in pop culture. Anywho, we hope that they patch things up, right?!
