Many may be side-eyeing Nene Leakes for asking fans to “boycott” Bravo after being axed by the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
Yet, she appears to have found support from former ‘Married To Medicine’ star Mariah Huq.
See what we mean below…
Huq, who co-created ‘Medicine,’ allegedly wasn’t invited back for season 8. Now, in an interestingly timed move is echoing similar sentiments as Leakes.
She hopped on Instagram and wrote:
“NeNe opened the doors for so many of us in this industry.When she talks we should definitely listen! She brought Bravotv to so many of our households that her name should be synonymous with the Network! Ya’ll know her and Andy are play siblings! Lol #Bloop Who protects Black women from being used & abused? #PushThru sis.. #BenCrump is truly God sent! So grateful for him shining a light to social injustice in our communities. He is holding people accountable and making sure we are being taken seriously! Be sure to tune in!”
in April, Huq revealed she hadn’t received a contract for the upcoming season of ‘Married To Medicine.’ Ever animated, she shared the news with a pic of herself at her empty mailbox.
While eradicating racial injustice in the media scape is a must, yours truly is finding it near impossible to buy into the nonsense being drummed up here.
On both of their shows, each lady was at the center of friction and arguably created fractions and factions in the cast that made for uncomfortable viewing.
So, whether being an “OG” or even having a hand in creating the show, there remains the necessity to be entertaining and at the very least be cordial with the rest of the cast. Something that just doesn’t feel to be the case with Nene or Mariah.
How can one cry foul, or in this case “discrimination,” when we have countless success stories of women using the platform wisely and cultivating colossal followings while doing so (see: Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, and many more).
