Nene Leakes just refuses to go the hell away. Why are we still talking about her? Well, it’s a slow news day. ICYMI, Nene filed a lawsuit, back in April at the Atlanta federal court, listing NBCUniversal, Bravo, True Entertainment and Truly Original, executives from the companies and Andy Cohen as defendants, according to documents obtained by ET.
The lawsuit suit alleges, “NBC, and its parent company Comcast, perpetuate the lack of diversity in the industry. Comcast and NBC have been, and still are, plagued by a lack of diversity at the highest levels of the senior leadership.” It’s a laughable lawsuit. Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss were two of the highest paid members of RHOA. Kandi has multiple spinoffs and shows on Bravo. Nene got non-renewed because she is a pain in the ass to work with. Period. End of discussion. RHOA and RHOP are two Real Housewives franchises with black casts. Nene and Kandi and I wanna say someone else but my mind is blank. I just had to go out in THE WORLD and am still a bit rattled.
The Kim Zolciak Allegations Are Ridiculous
The lawsuit also states that Leakes had complained for years about alleged racist remarks made by fellow former cast member Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who, according to the suit, allegedly made “racially insensitive and stereotypical” comments about fellow cast member Kandi Burruss’ home and that Zolciak-Biermann allegedly used the N-word to refer to Leakes and other members of the cast. Leakes did not name Kim as a defendant in the lawsuit.
So the latest this week is that Bravo wants to take the case out of the public eye and into arbitration. Nene’s contract requires that anyway. Or at least that is what the latest was when I started this post. While trying to get myself calmed down after having to leave the house today, more news came rolling in. It now seems, According to Page Six, that TODAY they have agreed to a 45 day period to allow for arbitration. Nene claims she has been “black-balled” By Bravo and NBCu and isn’t being offered other jobs.
In my opinion, the entire lawsuit is ridiculous. Throughout the lawsuit, Nene cites Kim Zolciak as the racist who was allowed to demean her. Her main example is the cockroaches in Nene’s house episode. She seems to forget that after she got fired, and up to VERY recently, she was trying to get Kim to agree to host a podcast with her. Also, there were way more episodes where she and Kim were BFFs than not. Just because they fight and pick at each other here and there. Is Kim racist? I dunno. But, she was very tight with Nene for most of the show.
I feel like this whole lawsuit is ridiculous. Nene is claiming she has been black balled. Perhaps, what she needs is a therapist where she can do some self-reflecting. Maybe she is just an entitled cunt that no one wants to work with. That said, I feel like Bravo might throw some money at her, have her file an agreement not to sue again and wash their hands of her. AGAIN.
