According to an explosive report, “the door is closed” to Nene Leakes for season 13 of the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
Full story below…
Citing sources close to the situation, LoveBScott reports that the RHOA original has not been invited back for the show’s next instalment.
A polarzier in recent seasons, Leakes has notably fallen out with the lion-share of the cast and was shown attempting to spit on foe Kenya Moore.
Elsewhere, she’s clashed with cameramen, likened her treatment on the show to the killing of unarmed Black man George Floyd, and just this week suggested Andy Cohen should be fired in a retweet. She’s also made several allusions to taking legal action against an entity – which many have interpreted as Bravo.
All, it seems, has contributed to her not receiving her pick-up letter for season 13.
“Pickup letters went out last Friday via emails to each of the ladies’ representatives and NeNe did not get one. Eva Marcille already announced she isn’t returning.
Leakes notably took to social media moments ago to tweet:
“You are NOT gonna get away with this. I promise!”
Interestingly, B.Scott adds that several reps for Leakes (from PR to management) are countering the claim that’s she’s been “fired” and that negotiations are on-going.
But there’s a strong possibility it’s the wording that’s the issue (e.g. “fired” vs “walked away on her own volition”).
It also presents questions around whether a reduced role/rate is why things are at a seeming impasse.
However, with fresh sources re-confirming that she legitimately doesn’t have a letter (yet), it’s not looking good. Especially with filming said to be starting in less than 30 days.
Also of note is this spot of tea poured out by an insider (about Leakes’ predicament):
“There is a larger NBC/Universal conversation happening it’s [all] folded into.”
Could this lend credence to the rumors of a major overhaul across a number of the Bravo franchises in a bid to freshen ’em up?
In any case, let us know…
