NENE Leakes announced that she’s ready to move on from her ongoing feud from Bravo executive producer Andy Cohen after claiming that she experienced “systemic racism.”
The reality star admitted she’s ready to put the past behind her during her guest hosting stint on The Talk.
“I’m having a disagreement with Andy. I am not the kind of person who would hold a grudge forever,” the TV personality revealed.
“The ball is in his court. I’m ready to welcome him and Benny boo with open arms.
Back in September, NeNe lashed out on Twitter over comments made on an episode of What What Happens Live.
During an interview between Andy and talk show host Wendy Williams, the pair discussed NeNe’s recent departure on the series.
Wendy told the host, “Nene has quit the show several times, and you’ll have her back. NeNe likes attention, dramatic attention.”
She continued to question how the former RHOA star would support herself financially since she left the show.
“I don’t know what NeNe is going to be doing for money. I’m not trying to count coins, but the Housewives is that one thing that all the girls use to promote their other stuff.
Wendy then asked Andy about a possibility of a spin-off series: “Is it going to be like, Gregg and NeNe on another reality show? That’s boring. NeNe being a grandmother?
“That’s boring. NeNe and her own kids? That’s boring. NeNe trying to figure out Hollywood? That’s boring,” she repeated.
The TV star was not happy with her long-time frenemy’s comments, taking to Twitter to clap back.
“Both are f their ratings are LOW! Bye QUEENS,” she tweeted before continuing her rant in a series of posts.
“I have ALWAYS believed in multiple streams of income so the leakes are good you ole cocaine head and you ole racist. No one knew you until YOU knew me.”
She then directed her frustration towards Andy, writing: “They gone leave my name outta these shows. Send me your best discrimination attorneys info to firstname.lastname@example.org ITS WAR.”
NeNe furthered her discrimination claims against the Bravo host saying that as the only original black cast member, she has received “less and less” per season compared to her white co-stars.
The Georgia native also shared pics of “white” stars from the Real Housewives Franchise including Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer, and Teresa Giudice claiming that they received more air-time in one season while she only was offered “six episodes.”
She directly went after Cohen again in a tweet calling out the __year-old writing:
“Andy is THE biggest Gaslighter in all the Land of Housewives,” saying in another tweet that Andy “plays dirty.”
“So much you guys just don’t know! I’m going to bed now! The systemic racism is greater than you will ever know,” she added.
This was not the first time she has but heads with the Bravo King.
During last night’s second part of the reunion, the OG housewife walked out on the cast for a second time after being muted three times in the last two episodes.
She then took to Instagram to explain why she had done so in a lengthy statement typed out on her notes app.
The 53-year-old wrote just one hour after the show had aired: “It only felt right to personally remove myself from the reunion!
“So much had happened this season! (the cookie lady, Mark & Kenya’s fake marriage, Dennis accusations, Snake gate and much more) but drilling me on subjects, muting me, flashing back to things that had happened since the show has wrapped (like my relationship with Wendy [Williams] while in quarantine.”
She continued her lengthy post and said: “(Why didn’t they ask about Kandi’s restaurant shooting then if that’s what were doing) interviews I’ve done since we wrapped the show that has nothing to do with the show.)
“After deciding that apologizing for certain things was only right.)
“That wasn’t genuine enough! Starting over with lil sis Porsha was made fun of and here they go bringing someone on the reunion that I was personally told by executives wasn’t allowed on set anymore!
“All this and so much more felt like the rules only applied to me and that I was being held to a different standard than others but you continue to be the judge.”
Nene was going off after being involved in fights with Kenya Moore, Eva Marcille and then Kandi Burruss.
During the last two fights, the women had to be muted in order for the reunion to move on, which Nene seemed to take personally.
Nene, who has been on the show since season one, believed that more interesting things had happened on the show that deserved more attention than her friendship status with Wendy Williams.
This isn’t the first time that Nene has claimed she’s held to a different set of rules than the rest of the housewives.
A source had previously talked about how Nene felt towards the latest season: “Nene has expressed her unhappiness with how positively Kenya [Moore] is being portrayed on the show.”
Insiders expressed how she “feels like she is getting a bad edit and is being intentionally cut out of episodes.”
