NeNe Leakes is doing something she doesn’t often do: apologizing.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is apologizing for her controversial statements she made over the weekend about a heckler at one of her stand-up shows.
“I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend,” NeNe wrote on social media. “Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so. As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used. I made a mistake, and I should have known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I am sorry.”
Well, NeNe didn’t like it and fired back at one woman who was heckling the reality star.
“I ain’t even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver. I hope he rape yo’ ass tonight when he take you home, bitch,” Leakes fired back. “And steal yo’ funky hello kitty, bitch.”
However, it seems like sorry may not be enough to save the RHOA star’s reality TV gig.
Sources say that NeNe’s RHOA job is “on the line” now that Bravo has deemed her a liability.
In fact, insiders reveal that Bravo “can’t stand by her statement” and are “having a meeting with producers to discuss her future.”
“There will be a punishment, and they are determining what it will be,” says the insider. “There’s been so much backlash and co-stars say she’s gone too far and they want her gone.”
“By tomorrow there should be some repercussion from a leave of absence to being fired,” the insider dishes. “They are filming now and would have to figure out how it will play out.”
To make matters worse, there’s even talk of replacing NeNe considering her hefty $2 million paycheck.
“Maybe bring Phaedra back…or a new person,” says the insider.

I think NeNe has gotten herself in quite the pickle. Between her rape comments and her issues with Kim and Brielle NeNe’s drowning in drama. I think NeNe could lose a lot from this, and while I think everyone is way too sensitive about being politically correct these days, rape isn’t ever funny.
Thoughts on NeNe’s apology? Do you think NeNe’s RHOA job is on the line? Should NeNe be replaced on RHOA?
