The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was on a panel during the Wednesday episode of the show, and the topic of discussion was whether or not Michael was a toxic parent. Michael is the father of Lindsay Lohan.
Right away, Nene began sounding off on Michael saying, “You are a toxic parent!” she continues, “You are a manipulator, you’re just trying to make money off your daughter Lindsay!” She even went as far as to refer to Michael as a “broke ass,” which is interesting coming from someone who was evicted from her rented home only a year ago.
Michael, never one to keep his lips sealed, responded, “I’m not gonna see my daughter die! You have Michael Jackson, you had Heath Ledger, Adam Goldstein. You can go back to John Belushi, Anna Nicole Smith, and even Elvis Presley. It was prescription drugs that killed these people. I’m not gonna watch my daughter die.”
The fight got a bit more personal as Michael advised NeNe to “Do something worthwhile and promote Nutri-System! Give your chair a break and move your fat a**!”
Michael has since apologized for his statements on the show releasing the following statement -
“I apologize to the producers of ["The Insider"], the viewers and even Miss Leakes for coming back at her, for her attack on me, in the inappropriate manner I did. I do however wish I had known she was on the panel because then I would have known what I was in for and I would have handled things differently.
“To begin with, she may have children, but none in a crisis situation. Second, for her to call me a broke ass when I am not, but she had a house in foreclosure and 2 cars repoed [sic], I would have addressed that as well.
