NeNe Leakes Deletes Her IG Amid Drama Over ‘RHOA’ Contract

NeNe Leakes has deleted her Instagram page amid questions of whether she’ll return for season 13 of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

Still, her Twitter is going strong as her most recent message urges her fans and followers to “support black women.” She wrote Tuesday night (Aug. 25th):

“Support Black Women, Protect Black Women! You have no idea what they’ve been thru or the WEIGHT they have carried on their backs silently for yearsssssssssss. Thank you! Bye”
Just days before NeNe Leakes tweeted,
“I hav protected every1 for years and covered up things i shouldn’t have! I took the beating so others didn’t have too and no one has protected me or stood up for me. Y’all have gone silent and turned the other cheek. You are NOT exempted from getting this same treatment 1 day”
Interestingly enough, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” veteran Tamra Judge possibly suggested NeNe Leakes is no longer on the show. She showed love to “The Real Housewives of New York” star Dorinda Medley on Instagram just hours after her departure from the show was announced.
Tamra Judge included the hashtag #NeNe in a list of other ladies who once starred in the “Real Housewives” franchise like Bethenny Frankel, telling Dorinda Medley:
“it’s pretty amazing on the other side.”
It’s not clear why NeNe Leakes erased her Instagram account, but there has been lots of drama surrounding her role in the upcoming season of “RHOA.” As of last month, she still hadn’t signed her contract and said it was because of the network, not her.
She said on Instagram Live:

“Every single season, when it ends- for at least the last three to four seasons – I’ve been dealing with this. Going back and forth? It’s not me; it’s them. I know a lot of people think it’s me. [They say,] ‘NeNe holds out ’til the last minute…’ A negotiation does take time, but I cannot move their pens any faster than they move them themselves…there’s so much issues with NeNe…”

She continued,

“One of the issues we have addressed that one side said to my side is, ‘She calls herself a queen- the HBIC. And, quite frankly, we are tired of hearing that.’ Well, I am a queen. I am [my husband] Gregg’s queen. I am [my son] Brent’s queen. I am [my son] Bryson’s queen, and I am a Black queen. So, you won’t be not hearing that anytime soon…I wonder did Porsha get that same call. ‘Cause I know for two reunions, she has worn a crown. So I wonder if she considers herself a queen.”

“Another thing I know was addressed was that I was told that I hit one of the producers, and they could’ve prosecuted me for that if they wanted to. They showed the tape to everybody that was watching. I never hit any producer. It was my camera guy. I grabbed his t-shirt, and his t-shirt tore…I wonder would they prosecute Theresa [Giudice] from [‘Real Housewives of] New Jersey’ when she pushed Andy down at the reunion. Wonder if they had that same conversation with her.”
