Nene Leakes Confirms That Her ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Contract Is Being Negotiated
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes recently confirmed that her contract for RHOA is currently being negotiated. The reality star confirmed the news on Instagram live. “I’m still in a holding pattern. Let me start there. I also want to say that it’s not me, it’s them. Every single season when it ends for at least the last three to four seasons I have been dealing with this going back and forth. It’s not me. It’s them,” Leakes said.
“I know a lot of people think it’s me. ‘Nene holds out to the last minute. Nene’s holding out.’ That is not Nene. Nene is not doing that. A negotiation does take time. I can’t move their pens any faster than they move themselves. I can’t make their emails work. There’s been a lot of talk on both sides. The last three years there’s been a lot of talk that there have been so much issues with Nene and I don’t know why there’s a lot of different things coming from the other side.”
“One of the issues that we have addressed is that the other side said to my side that she calls herself a ‘queen’ and the ‘HBIC’ and quite frankly we are tired of hearing that. Well, I am a queen. I am Greg’s queen. I am Brent’s queen. I am Bryson’s queen. And I’m a Black queen. So you won’t be not hearing that anytime soon. I will continue to say I’m a queen because I am,” Leakes said of the matter.
“I wonder did Porsha get that same call because I know for two reunions she wore a crown. I wonder did she get that same call. Also, another thing that I know was addressed was that I was told that I hit one of the producers and they could have prosecuted me for that if they wanted to. Well, they showed the tape, so everyone that was watching. I never hit a producer. It was a camera guy. I grabbed his t-shirt and his t-shirt tore.”
“So I think everybody knows that. He’s a huge guy and you can go to interview him if you want to. I grabbed his t-shirt and I pulled his t-shirt, which made it tear. Now, I wonder would they prosecute Teresa from New Jersey when she pulled Andy [Andy Cohen] down at the reunion. I wonder if they had that same conversation with her. I was curious about that,” Leakes said.
“Well, another thing I know that was addressed was that I closed my computer early at the reunion. Well, I addressed that already and I addressed that again because it was brought up so I figured we might as well address that again. I closed my computer, rightfully so,” Leakes continued.
She also talked about how she was previously told that a “certain person” could no longer film with her, but she was saddened because she thought said person was “cool.” “I didn’t have a problem with them filming,” Leakes said before bringing up that that same person ended up showing up at the reunion.
