Nene Leakes Says Bravo ‘Definitely’ Forced Her Out: They Don’t Think I Deserve To Work At All
Nene Leakes is sharing more about her exit from Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
While replying to fans on Twitter, she alleged that the network “forced her out.”
One fan asked if Bravo would give her a spinoff. She responded:
“They don’t think i deserve to work at all in any [capacity]”
Another fan said her statement made it sound like Bravo “forced” her to leave.
Nene Leakes replied:
“They definitely did”
She also retweeted a fan who said the show would be much different without her.
Nene Leakes announced that she was leaving the series ahead of its 13th season. She said earlier this month:
“It has been hard, and I have made the very hard and difficult decision to not be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13. It wasn’t an easy decision for me. It was hard. I started on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008. We took off like a rocket. I mean, we took off. You could have never told me that I would start on this little show and it still be going strong 13, 14 years later. And it is. I’m just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for Black ensemble reality shows to step up and be a part of what we all now love so much, reality TV.”
She previously called out Bravo and said that it was holding up her contract.
“Every single season, when it ends- for at least he 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…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 Gregg’s queen. I am Brent’s queen. I am 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.”
