NeNe Leakes Calls Andy Cohen Racist And A Manipulator On Twitter; Says Wendy Williams Is “On Cocaine”

DAMN, GINA! NeNe Leakes has gone nuts come out swinging, but metaphorically this time. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star is on Twitter again and to say it’s a lot is an understatement. We get it, she’s emotional, but now NeNe is saying things that could really bite her in the ass. On the bright side, she’s already out of a job, so there’s not much left to lose. Dignity went out the door about five years ago.

Viewers have seen NeNe upset before. She kind of remains in a bothered state, so this is nothing new. This latest temper tantrum finds NeNe throwing jabs at (former?) friend, Wendy Williams and former boss, Andy Cohen. According to NeNe, Andy is racist and Wendy is under the influence of cocaine. Because clearly anything is easier than admitting you are wrong. Now, NeNe isn’t giving lessons on how to burn bridges. She’s giving lessons on completely incinerating them.

NeNe Leakes is feeling some type of way again. On the heels of being “let go” from Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe has taken to social media to whine complain about the fact that her peach went bye-bye. Public social rants are common, especially when you lose your job, but NeNe is taking it next level. Viewers have become used to NeNe and her often caustic displays over the years. But while her antics have become legendary, they have also become intolerable.

NeNe has been given every opportunity to redeem herself. She could have taken responsibility for her violent outburst against a cameraman. She could have extended grace to her husband instead of reprimanding him publicly during his battle with cancer. Not spitting on Kenya Moore probably would have helped. Instead of accepting her fate and perhaps reflecting on what brought her here, NeNe is playing her favorite role. Martyr. This is all Bravo’s fault, you guys – because NeNe says so.

Considering that nearly half of the season had already been filmed without NeNe Leakes, it wasn’t surprising when NeNe finally made it official and announced her exit from Real Housewives of Atlanta. Girl, we all saw the photos of the cast filming. We already knew you weren’t there.

We all know that NeNe was holding out for more money. And, once again, I would just love to know how much money we’re talking here. How much was on the table? How much did she want instead? But anyway, NeNe’s exit has given her something she hasn’t had in a long time: positive headlines. Sure, the recent seasons have been rough to watch since NeNe became increasingly narcissistic and entitled. However, we must give credit where it is due. NeNe made Real Housewives of Atlanta the iconic show that it is… during the early seasons, anyway.

It’s looking like there’s a huge shake up headed to the Real Housewives of Atlanta this season. Not only has Nene Leakes exited stage left, but we have some new recruits! That’s right. Don’t forget we’ve already been teased with two new wives. Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali. Drew is coming to us as a friend of Kandi Burruss. My favorite trivia about her is that she acted in That’s So Raven. LaToya is a YouTube star. Welcome to 2020 y’all. Remember when housewives were all selling real estate or married to retired athletes?

Porsha Williams, who has been super busy getting this country right and tight when it comes to Black Lives Matter, is also bringing someone new to the show for season 13. I actually can’t for this new one! She sounds…perfect!

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Bravo has had to become creative putting together new shows. They’ve shot confessionals at home and reunions via zoom. It’s not the same, but it’s better than nothing, and these efforts are appreciated by the fans who are watching at home.

Now, there’s a new Zoom talk show coming up with a pretty random, all-star cast. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Below Deck alum Kate Chastain will executive produce and host Bravo’s Chat Room along with Potomac Housewife Gizelle Bryant and Hannah Berner from Summer House.

RHOA - NeNe Leakes

Aaaand that’s a wrap, again, for Nene Leakes. This icon is taking yet another leave from Real Housewives of Atlanta. We had expected it for a while. And there are already rumors swirling about new Housewives this coming season. But now it’s official.

Garcelle Beauvais is already trying to have Nene swap over to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise. She’s not the only Bravo-leb who’s been reaching out to Nene lately either.

Honestly, it’s 2020, so anything can happen at this point. It would be the reality television crossover no one asked for heard across the Bravosphere. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Garcelle Beauvais wants now former Real Housewives of Atlanta headliner, NeNe Leakes, to come on over to Cali. Garcelle, what have we done to deserve this? Well, NeNe needs a new gig and Beverly Hills has a vacancy. Now that NeNe has been let go left her journey in Atlanta, is it possible she could pop up in the Hills?

Quite frankly, it sounds like something Andy Cohen would salivate over. His “icon” stirring things up in a completely different environment. As with the usual Bravo formula, NeNe already has existing friendships with some of the stars. And she may be in LA on the regular filming her new, sure to be successful fashion show. So I suppose it’s conceivable, in some alternate universe, that this could happen. Garcelle lost her buddy Denise Richards to bullying scandal, now she wants NeNe to come in and fill her spot. Lisa Rinna is probably shaking in her boots at the mere thought, so maybe it is a good idea after all.

After months of speculation, and heated negotiations, Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes is done with the show… for now anyway. It would not be shocking if she made a return, since she has before.

In all honesty, it was pretty obvious that NeNe was gone. The upcoming season is currently filming. They are nearly halfway through and NeNe hadn’t filmed one scene. So, of course, she wasn’t coming back to the show. The writing was on the wall.
