NeNe Leakes Reacts To Bravo Removing Her From ‘RHOA’ Flashback Scene: ‘It’s Really Just A Shame People Can Do These Things & Get Away w/ It’

Is Bravo trying to erase NeNe Leakes from ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ history books?

The “Housewives” franchise is known for adding in a flashback moment here and there to help keep viewers up to date on all the drama. The throwback footage is usually appreciated by many, as it can be hard to remember everything that has happened over the years in the reality stars’ lives. However, the latest “RHOA” flashback clip used Sunday night (Jun. 11) has viewers calling Bravo “petty” and “nasty.”

During the episode, Bravo had a segment that mixed in an intro scene from the 2011 season. That year the main cast included Cynthia Bailey, Kim Zolciak, Kandi Burruss, Shereé Whitfield, Phaedra Parks, and NeNe Leakes. However, despite being a peach holder for season 4, NeNe Leakes was removed from the flashback clip.

NeNe Leakes was on “RHOA” from season one, which aired in 2008, until season 12, which aired in 2019. As of now, it’s unclear why Bravo made the decision to exclude NeNe from the throwback footage, but it may have something to do with her accusations against the network and Andy Cohen. Last August the “Glee” actress dropped her lawsuit against Bravo producers and Andy Cohen where she accused the parties of ignoring years of alleged racist remarks she endured from former co-star Kim Zolciak, who is white. She also previously claimed Andy Cohen “sabotaged” negotiations surrounding her (potential) Sirius XM radio show.

But it seems that viewers don’t care about the lawsuit drama and it didn’t take long for them to call out Bravo for the questionable editing choice. One Twitter user wrote,

“Petty and nasty! Andy and Bravo, no amount of editing could erase Nene’s contributions and legacy. You could never erase Nene from our memories either; she built #RHOA Lawsuit or not, this was unnecessary.”

Another said,

“Nene didn’t just put RHOA on the map, she put Real Housewives and Bravo on the map. They owe her everything. Trying to erase her legacy is petty, embarrassing and kinda solidifies her allegations of bullying.”

NeNe has since reacted to the edited footage and being a trending topic on Twitter. This morning (Jun. 12) she thanked her fans for their unwavering support and seemingly called out Bravo. She wrote,

“Thank you tweetie pies for all of your DM’s and comments! I see everything you are sending to me!

It’s really just a shame people can do these things and get away wit it. If only you really knew! If only you knew”
