It seems like any news coming from Bravo about The Real Housewives of Atlanta is quite a story. Apparently it seems like Nene Leakes is being punished by the network for last season’s altercation with crew and production. Viewers only saw Nene tearing off a cameraman’s shirt, however both Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss have both stated it was way more physical than we saw. One member of the crew even had to go to the hospital with a missing tooth after Nene allegedly assaulted. Beyond that situation it seems the executives behind the show are becoming fed up with her attitude and disrespect and have begun looking for a potential housewife with a “Big Name.”

As revealed during the reunion, NeNe’s altercation with producers was way more intense than we saw. We saw NeNe rip a cameraman’s shirt, but Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss shared that one of the crew members ended up in the hospital with a missing tooth after NeNe put her hands on him.
For that reason, in addition to NeNe’s ‘bad attitude’ in dealing with producers and execs behind the scenes, sources tell lovebscott.com that NeNe has been forced to “sit out” for at least the first part of the season — maybe longer — as the ladies begin filming.
NeNe is being paid per episode, so every filming she misses is money out of her pocket — so we’re sure she’s not thrilled.
We’ve also been told that the network is on the hunt for a new housewife with a BIG name to draw viewers.
The season is just getting started and, as always, we’ll will keep you up to date on the latest ‘Housewives’ tea coming out of Atlanta.
