Nene Leakes has recently been making headlines after reports starting coming up stating that the long-time cast member of “Real House Wives Of Atlanta” had been fired from the show.
The stunning 52-year-old TV personality has had a checkered past with her fellow cast members, often calling for them to be fired whenever she doesn’t get along with them.
Some have speculated that this was a long time coming after several instances of what is considered “bullying” on the show.
Nene’s long time “adversary” on the show “Kenya Moore” was recently mentioned in an interview where Nene explained that she doesn’t “like her in real life”. Moore has been frequently at odds with Nene, and the two are practically iconic at this point due to the nature of their feuds.
Although many stories have already come out detailing the speculation of her possible firing, Nene has denied all rumors on her social media. Her agent echoed her own denial of the reports, and others have come forward saying the same.
A spokesperson told People that these rumors of Nene being fired are simply not true:
“There is no truth to this story – Nene was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing,” the spokesperson told PEOPLE.
As mentioned before, Nene’s manager, Steven Grossman, came forward stating: “It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA. Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”
Co-star Cynthia Bailey has also had to defend herself amid rumors that she was also fired saying the following during an interview:
“I’ve been on [RHOA] for 11 years. I never signed on to be on it for the rest of my life, so I don’t worry about it.
“When the network decides it’s time for me to go, I’m going to go. I would like to be able to at least show where I’m at in my life with my wedding right now, but I’m pretty good.”
Some have speculated that any intention Bravo had to fire members of the “RHOA” cast were snuffed after so many accusations and possible lawsuits for “racism” started to come up.
It is highly unlikely that Bravo would fire anyone of color currently, especially after they just fired Peter Hunziker of “Below Deck Mediterranean” and four cast members of “Vanderpump Rules” due to alleged racism.
Their public stance to create a diverse workplace would immediately face scrutiny from social activist groups and the media should they bring that statement into question.
