Let's Discuss: NeNe Leakes The Real Housewives of Atlanta - RHOA

NeNe Leakes Reveals She Had a ‘Breakdown’ After Rape Joke

NeNe Leakes reveals that she had a breakdown following the backlash she received after making a rape joke at one of her recent stand-up shows.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star opened up to E! News about how she’s dealing with the controversy.

“A lot of people know me as NeNe who’s laughing and talking,” NeNe explained. “A lot of people don’t know me as NeNe who, you know, would have a breakdown — a moment.”

“Trust and believe; I’m so okay, I’m in a great place today. I can’t say that I’ve been in a great place these last few days, but I am so OK. I am so OK with everything,” NeNe added.

NeNe explains that the heckler insulted her; forcing her to fire back.“I never imagined ever, ever, ever stepping on stage and somebody screaming out ‘Go kill yourself’ to me. It literally took me somewhere else, I apologize. I’ve let it go.”

However, the fallout from NeNe’s freakout continues to grow.

It’s rumored that NeNe’s Real Housewives of Atlanta gig could be on the line.

Meanwhile, NeNe was also fired from hosting XScape’s The Great XScape tour.

“Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend NeNe Leakes. As a result, we have decided to no longer proceed with her participation on our tour. It was an unfortunate incident for which NeNe has since apologized, and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period. As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best,” the group explained in a statement to TMZ.

Despite the setbacks, NeNe is making it clear that she’s “stronger” than she looks and “wasn’t built to break.”

NeNe is surrounding herself with good friends to help get her through this ordeal.

I’m not surprised NeNe is getting blowback from her comments. Hopefully, NeNe has realized she can’t just say anything and everything that pops into her head. I think NeNe will be dealing with the fallout from this scandal for a while.

Are you surprised NeNe had a breakdown after her rape joke? Do you think NeNe is worried about her career?
