NeNe Leakes Drops Lawsuit Against Bravo

NeNe Leakes has decided to drop her discrimination lawsuit against Andy Cohen, True Entertainment, Bravo, and the network’s parent company NBC Universal. 

On Friday (August 19), the 54-year-old former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star filed to dismiss the case “without prejudice,” meaning she has the option to reopen the suit at a later time. 

However, Page Six reported back in June that NeNe Leakes had been in negotiations with Andy, Bravo, and NBC Universal to settle the case out of court. 

NeNe Accuses Network Of Fostering A Hostile And Racist Work Environment 

NeNe originally filed her lawsuit in an Atlanta federal court in April and accused executives at NBCUniversal, Bravo, True Entertainment, Truly Original, and executive producer Andy Cohen of fostering and tolerating a hostile and racist work environment. 

In the lawsuit, NeNe listed multiple instances of racism from her castmate Kim Zolciak-Biermann from her saying she didn’t “want to sit around with NeNe and eat chicken” to her calling other Black “Housewives” the N-word. 

She also noted the time Kim implied NeNe used drugs and called her home a “roach nest.”

NeNe said she suffered consequences after complaining about Kim’s racist remarks and behavior, but Kim went unscathed.

The suit says executives “did not terminate their relationship with Zolciak-Biermann, nor take any other meaningful action to put an end to her racially-offensive behavior.”

Instead, they rewarded her with her own spin-off series. 

Ironically, NeNe called Kandi Burruss a racial slur on social media. 

Kandi attributed NeNe’s venom to her being jealous of her relationship with Bravo. 

Kandi has had multiple spin-offs on the network.

Has NeNe Leakes Been Blacklisted?

Prior to filing her discrimination lawsuit, NeNe took to social media and updated her Twitter profile with the following description: “Blacklisted for telling the truth and not wanting to be abused anymore.”

In May, NeNe took to social media claiming she and her family were being harassed and followed. 

She also tweeted, “Stop blacklisting Black women for speaking the truth. Stop paying off attorneys to not file discrimination claims! STOP IT!”

Almost two weeks ago, NeNe Leakes seemingly accused Andy of stopping her from working because she was a threat to his career.

She also noted she has voice recordings she wants to release.

I wonder if those recorded calls led to the dismissal of the lawsuit.

While no one has commented on filing to dismiss the case, the court documents state all parties agreed to not “seek recovery of costs or attorneys’ fees.” 

Now, if that doesn’t scream settlement…

Your thoughts?
