As you may already know, NeNe Leakes lost her gig as a host for Xscape’s upcoming tour after she bashed an audience member in the crowd with a brash rape joke. Although she apologized for her choice of words, it appears as if her role on the popular series, The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, may be in jeopardy.
According to a report from BET, her co-stars are refusing to work with her because of her joke. Radar Online reported that her castmates are “over her” and the production team finds themselves between a rock and a hard place.
A source revealed to the publication that “Kim refuses to film” with NeNe anymore, so producers halted production for the “all cast” scene.
The publication alleged that “Porsha Williams is refusing to film with NeNe” who is on team-Zolciak. Sheree Whitfield is also backing out of her relationship with Leakes.
At the moment, no one is exactly sure how the remaining women like Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, and Kandi Burruss, feel about the situation. Either way, according to the report, NeNe’s role on the show may be disappearing.
The source alleges, “they are currently talking about firing her.” In case you hadn’t heard of the controversial statement; when NeNe was on stage at her gig in Oakland, California, a heckler was yelling at her from the crowd.
In response, NeNe exclaimed, “I hope your Uber driver rapes your as* tonight b**ch.” However, was it merely a joke as a part of the performance, or was it genuinely insensitive? In other news, James Corden, like NeNe, had to apologize for his Harvey Weinstein rape jokes. Rose McGowan and Asia Argento both claimed the audience members were “pigs” for laughing at his performance.
