It seems like NeNe Leakes is still holding a grudge.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum made waves on social media after she retweeted a fan’s response to rumors of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville’s potential return to the California-based franchise.
After social media account @BravoBeez posted about Brandi’s rumored comeback, one fan replied, “It’s Amazing to me how everyone can get an opportunity to return to these housewives shows but @NeNeLeakes when we know that’s Housewife a Royalist. Where is the grace?”
NeNe retweeted the shady comeback to her 1.9 million followers, who had mixed reactions.
One fan replied, “Her ego and her mouth is why RHOA was the #1 Housewives franchise and why she is the queen of memes! #TeamNene”
Another fan countered, “Her ego and big mouth cinched it. The lawsuit cauterized it. There are other networks…”
A third said, “Baby, ‘grace’ left with the lawsuit. No denying she’s a Housewife icon, but she’s also a liability.”
Avid fans will remember that NeNe sued Bravo alongside Andy Cohen and NBCUniversal back in April 2022 for discrimination and perpetuating a racist environment on the set of RHOA. NeNe also named former friend and co-star Kim Zolciak Biermann in the suit.
NeNe described Kim in the suit as a racist who made remarks that “perpetuated an offensive stereotype about African-Americans,” and Bravo stood by and refused to sever ties with Kim after her racially charged behavior. The suit claims Kim used the “N-Word” and referred to NeNe’s home as a “roach nest.”
Kim has denied any wrongdoing.
The former The New Normal star also claimed that Bravo attempted to “blacklist” her from Hollywood and hinder her ability to get work on other projects in retaliation for calling the network out.
“I was constantly being retaliated against, being blacklisted, not able to work, being silenced, and so, you know, it was difficult to do,” NeNe told TMZ back in May.
She also accused former boss Andy of blackballing her because she “was a threat to his career.”
The suit was later mutually dismissed in August 2022 after lengthy talks and negotiations.
NeNe has since expressed that she would return to Bravo and RHOA and “gladly” work with Bravo again, but some “changes” would need to be made.
NeNe was an original cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta from seasons one through seven, and she returned for seasons 10 through 12 before leaving again in 2020.
