The Atlanta Real Housewives stay ahead as the top rated franchise on Bravo. Recently there have been rumors that the network is eliminating Nene Leakes in order to attract a younger audience.
This was credible to many Bravo superfans who noticed that OGs get less screen time and that bravolebrities like Vicki Gunvalson were demoted as friends of the cast.
Wendy Williams covered this gossip in Hot Topics and got Nene’s unfiltered thoughts on it.
“I called her on the speaker. She was in her hair and makeup, and we quote her, she said she was anxiously expecting nothing! She said that they could eliminate it at any time and that she would not lose sleep, my child. Then she goes on to say, “Housewives are like soap operas, they come and go, but fans love the original stars.”
She went on to say that Leakes had raised the point that Cynthia Bailey was the oldest girl in RHOA, so she should be started first!
This may have come from Andy Cohen’s mess in a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live where he announced that a fan had pointed out that the former Glee was an outfit repeater.
Andy and Nene engaged in back and forth around the subject.
Leakes also went to Instagram to tell fans to log in and cast shadow on his co-stars in the process.
“Tune in to RHOA TONIGHT and watch these girls slander me as usual. As if I had become a punching bag for them and the others at this point, for real. If they weren’t talking about me, what the hell would they be talking about! Oh, I forgot EVERY OTHER like they already do @bravotv 8 p.m. “
Do you think the network could consider taking a catch from the Broadway star?
