NeNe Leakes Slammed By ‘RHOA’ Newcomer LaToya Ali, Accused Of Getting Her Aunt Fired, NeNe Responds
The latest season of the “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has just begun filming and already there is drama brewing! Show veteran NeNe Leakes posted what appeared to be subliminal tweets to her Twitter page that reads,
“Have you ever worked with a sociopath who used you for their personal gain to achieve what they want for themselves? You see there’s something wrong, You know something is wrong but you do nothing to stop it. Why? Do you lack empathy?”
Latoya Ali, an alleged new cast member of the long-running Bravo series and a Canadian YouTube personality, had a response of her own for NeNe Leakes.
“Nene, you lack empathy for black women. As a result of your “diva” behavior my aunt lost her contract in Toronto because of your comments towards black women, leaving a black woman’s job in jeopardy. Remember when you appeared on the shopping channel?”
In response, NeNe Leakes simply reposted the comment of someone who appeared to have more knowledge of the incident. That woman wrote,
“that’s incorrect Latoya. Your aunt lost her contract because she came in on a date that she wasn’t scheduled as a guest and waited outside of Nene’s dressing room for most of the day, essentially stalking her. Then she came and borrowed clothing from the collection to wear and take pictures with Nene. She wasn’t authorized to do any of that and technically shouldn’t have even been in the building at all. I worked for the network at the time and was Styling that show. Your aunt acted unprofessionally period. Don’t put out false information. I have respect for you, but that’s not what happened at all.”
NeNe appeared to be pleased with the tweet and added,
“Looks like my Canadian peeps from the channel is speaking out! Oh check out Ladiesofsuccessmiami.com and the women entrepreneur factory #blm #bbm #wepowerfulinnumbers”
It’s still unclear if NeNe will be back for season 13 amid previous speculation that she was fired. In fact, she appeared to laugh at the rumors before her manager Steven Grossman shut down reports as well.
Her manager said,
“It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA. Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”
Still, he suggested her contract for season 13 wasn’t set in stone yet.
“[We’re] having on-going bigger picture conversations with NBC Universal and have not made any decisions regarding next season specifically. Any speculation or sources trying to create controversy by stating otherwise are incredibly inaccurate. Bloop.”
