We have learned that the reality TV star struggled quite a lot with the backlash she has been receiving after telling a heckler she hoped she’d get raped during one of her standup comedy shows. The Real Housewives of Atlanta celeb Nene Leakes was then even fired from the tour with her Xscape bandmates as a consequence.
During an Instagram Live, Leakes opened up about what she feels now, in the aftermath of the scandal.
‘A lot of people know me as NeNe who is laughing and talking. A lot of people do not know me as Nene who, you know, would have a breakdown—a moment. Trust and believe me guys, I am so OK. I am in a great place today. I cannot say that I have been in a great place these last few days, but I’m so OK. I am so OK with everything,’ she told her followers.
Nene then apologized for her offensive reply to the heckler but claimed the woman had shouted ‘Go kill yourself’ before she shot back.

The reality star thanked fans for the words of support.
