NeNe Leakes is still angry at her former bosses at Bravo TV for showing her the door after 11 seasons. NeNe was dismissed previously in season 9 and returned in season 10.
The 53-year-old former original Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member was let go this year for insubordination and her inability or unwillingness to get along with her fellow cast members.
NeNe recently joined an Instagram live chat with her attorney Ben Crump to discuss her issues with Bravo, while urging her followers to boycott the network and stop watching her former show.
NeNe plans to sue Bravo for age and racial discrimination. She claims she was “demoted” and treated differently than her rivals on other ‘Housewives’ franchises.
“As an original housewife, a lot of these girls were being elevated,” she griped.
“I was demoted. And the way I was being demoted is I was given less and less episodes and these girls were given more and more episodes, I was given less.”
She continued: “Original housewives across the board, different sets and Beverly Hills, New Jersey, other places they were getting full seasons and I was given less episodes every season.”
NeNe shared a link to a petition and asked her Instagram followers to sign the petition, which she created with Married to Medicine‘s Mariah Huq.
The petition reads:
“This petition is putting Bravo TV on notice that fans of the shows Real Housewives of Atlanta and Married to Medicine hold them accountable for their dirty deeds, particularly as it relates to the unfair and biased treatment they have displayed towards their African American talent, more specifically NeNe Leakes and Mariah Huq.”
While some fans were supportive of the former stripper, others expressed their annoyance at the mother-of-two. They reminded her of her truculent ways that led to her downfall.
