“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes has some explaining to do after fans called her out, accusing her of making her skin lighter. The Bravo personality caused a stir when she posted a selfie from her home on Wednesday, June 24. Teasing that she was ready to spill the tea about the ongoing firing rumors, her post backfired when fans noticed her face looked much lighter than the rest of her body. Asking if “Karen” is doing her makeup, they made it clear they weren’t impressed.
Taking to her social media, NeNe Leakes posted a shot of herself wearing gold silk pajamas with her blonde locks in a sleek ponytail and out of her face. The 52-year-old flashed a salty smirk and sported a full face of makeup. “You only see me quiet in this picture but trust i have a lot to say! Coming soon,” she captioned the controversial selfie. The “RHOA” star also added the hashtag, “the truth will set you free.”

NeNe Leakes thought her caption would make headlines amid rumors she’s being fired from “RHOA,” but her makeup took center stage. Immediately after posting her photo, the Bravo personality’s comments filled up with people telling her to lay off the foundation claiming it looked way too light for her skin tone.
“WHO’S DAT WHITE WOMAN?” one follower questioned. “Who is doing your makeup? Asking for the people, is her name Karen?” added another. “I love you sis but that’s the wrong shade of foundation,” posted a third.

The comments bagging on NeNe Leakes’ makeup just kept coming. “Why you going light?” someone else wrote. Others took a softer approach at delivering the same message. “You have a natural lovely deeply rich beautiful brown skin complexion. This pale and pasty look is noooooottt it,” another shared, adding, “My black and born queens need to own that complexion!!”
As The Blast reported, NeNe Leakes is rumored to be on Bravo’s chopping block after threatening to expose other stars of the network after “Vanderpump Rules” personalities Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for a racial incident.
After Bravo shared their statement about axing Stassi and Kristen, NeNe Leakes commented, “Well alrighty then! Now we have a few more questions to ask about in other areas where there’s a major difference.” She then threatened “Should we talk privately or publicly?.”
While several fans begged NeNe Leakes for the tea, many others slammed the reality TV star pointing out that she’s one to talk considering she called Claudia Jordan, who’s bi-racial, a “half breed” years ago. Fans called on Bravo to fire NeNe Leakes next. It didn’t help when she was reportedly spotted at E! talking to executives about jumping to their network for a new show.
