NeNe’s issues with producers stem from season 11 when she ripped a cameraman’s shirt as seen on RHOA. However, co-stars Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss claimed the altercation was much more serious. In fact, they say that one of the crewmembers ended up in the hospital with a missing tooth after NeNe went after him. Yikes!
Now because of this and NeNe’s “bad attitude” producers are forcing her to “sit out” the first half of the season, or longer, while her co-star’s film season 12.
The publication also adds that NeNe is being paid per episode for season 12, which means that for every episode NeNe’s forced to sit out she’s losing money.
While this rumor sounds as juicy as a Georgia peach, NeNe’s rep says it just isn’t true!
In a statement to Us Weekly, NeNe’s rep says “I can say with authority that there is absolutely no truth to this. The only reason why she’s not currently shooting is because she is still in active negotiations with her contract.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 12 will likely premiere late this year on Bravo.
