NENE LEAKES SUES ‘REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA’ PRODUCTION COMPANIES FOR SUPPORTING RACIST WORK ENVIRONMENT

Nene Leakes Sues ‘REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA’.

NeNe Leakes, a former star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, filed a lawsuit against the show’s producers, al’leging that they fostered and tolerated a hostile and rac’st work environment.

According to The Associated Press, Leakes complained to show executives about raci’st remarks from white castmate Kim Zolciak-Bierman.

Instead of action against Zolciak-Bierman, Leakes was punished. The lawsuit names NBCUniversal, Bravo, True Entertainment, and Truly Original as companies. Show executive producer Andy Cohen is also named.

“NBC, Bravo and True foster a corporate and workplace culture in which raci’ally-insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated – if not, encouraged,” the suit reads.

In the suit, Zolciak-Bierman stated “words to the effect of: ‘I don’t want to sit around with NeNe and eat chicken” when a scene was set to be at a barbecue.

In season five, Zolciak-Bierman would refer to Kandi Burruss neighborhood as “ghetto” and suggested Burruss did not need a swimming pool.

She also all’eg’e’dly used the N-word in reference to Leakes, while also referring to her home as a “roach nest” and spreading false ru’m’ors of dru’g ab’us’e.

“As the Bl’ack Lives Matter movement swept our nation, Mrs. Leakes — Bravo’s historically most successful Black female talent — should have been embraced by NBC, Bravo, and True,” part of the suit reads.

“Instead, NBC, Bravo, and True forced her out of the ‘house she built,’ denying her a regular role.”

Zolciak-Bierman was not included in the suit. Leakes had a seven-season run on RHOA.
