Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Nene delicious lawsuit Bravo & Andy Cohen for racial discrimination

NeNe Leaks is suing Bravo, the producers of The Real Housewives, and Andy Cohen for racial discrimination.

The lawsuit, filed in the federal court in Atlanta, claims that Nene, who is Black, complained to leaders about years of racist remarks by housewife Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who is white, but that only Leake suffered the consequences.

It names as defendants NBCUniversal, Bravo, the production companies True Entertainment and Truly Original, executives from the companies and “Housewives” executive producer Andy Cohen, but not Zolciak-Biermann.

“NBC, Bravo and True promote a corporate and workplace culture in which race-sensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated – if not, then encouraged,” the case reads.

Nene, 54, a television personality and actress whose legal name is Linnethia Monique Leakes, spent seven seasons as one of the central stars of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” between 2008 and 2020.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants’ actions violated federal employment and anti-discrimination laws, and it seeks financial compensation to be determined during the trial.

The suit says in 2012 during the fifth season that Zolciak-Biermann made “racist offensive and stereotypical” comments about housewife Kandi Burrus’ new home, calling her neighborhood a “ghetto” and maintaining a racial stereotype in an offensive comment about whether Burruss needed A swimming pool.

That same year, the case says, Zolciak-Biermann used the N-word to refer to Leaks and others of the housewives after a dispute with them. It also claims that Zolciak-Biermann erroneously suggested that Leakes used drugs and called her home a “roach nest”.

The case says that after Leakes complained to the executives who oversaw the show, “they did not terminate their relationship with Zolciak-Biermann, nor did they take any other meaningful action to put an end to her racially abusive behavior,” and if anything rewarded her by giving her own spinoff show.
