Rumors are that there is a looming discrimination lawsuit against Bravo, however, NeNe Leakes’ representative made it known that the star isn’t part of it in any way.
The reality star’s rep told TMZ that NeNe is in no way ramping up to file suit or any type of legal action against Bravo at this time, nor is she “teaming up” with other women of color who might be considering such a move, making it clear that any notion to the contrary simply isn’t true.
Currently, NeNe is said to be focusing on herself and her own career, specifically, fleshing out her newly announced show with E!, Glamsquad Showdown, while also trying to work through negotiations with Bravo on potentially coming back for another season of RHOA.
Her rep also mentioned that NeNe is seeking a larger role in the NBCUniversal TV-sphere, and that those talks take a while. So no, she ain’t biting the hand that feeds in the meantime.
As for why folks might’ve thought something was brewing with NeNe in the first place, that might have to do with her own words and a whole lot of innuendo. The actress herself has alluded to mistreatment during her tenure there, both explicitly and implicitly.
She recently hopped on her YouTube channel to air some grievances about how she felt some of the showrunners and execs were treating her differently than some of the other ladies come reunion time. Not only that, but she also fueled intrigue when she dropped some suggestive comments about the ‘Vanderpump’ racism scandal from a few months back.
On top of that, her former RHOA costars, like Eva Marcille, have also been throwing NeNe’s name around when mentioning this supposed lawsuit that’s coming down the pike.
She recently did just that while talking on Rickey Smiley’s morning show, and while she didn’t exactly connect the dots, one could assume NeNe was in on the suit by the way she was talking.
All evidence from NeNe’s side just proves she’s not part of all the rumors, it even seems like NeNe still has plans with Bravo on the horizon that she very much wants to keep intact.
