NeNe recently went on a tirade about how she can’t seem to get her own spinoff show, but one of her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars continues to get various spinoffs on Bravo.
While NeNe didn’t name names, Kandi assumed the comment was about her since she’s had three successful spinoffs: The Kandi Factory, Kandi’s Ski Trip, and Kandi’s Wedding.
And soon enough, Kandi will be adding a fourth Bravo spinoff to her resume with Old Lady Gang. OLG will follow the ins and outs of Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker’s soul food restaurant.
Kandi shared the now-deleted video of NeNe complaining about not having a spinoff on her Instagram page.
In the video, NeNe said, “I think my not having a show is due to certain people not wanting me to have a show. Why one person gets to do a show every season after our show, it’s weird. To me, it looks really shady for one person season after season after season, and none of these other girls gets to do anything. It feels like someone is afraid that they would be bigger than you are. A threat basically, which is so ridiculous and so thirsty of them. It makes no sense to me.”
“This video won’t be up long, but I wanted to address this. So @neneleakes said on her live with @tamarbraxton that I misunderstood what she said on her Youtube…. Now I don’t know about y’all, but on this video, it sounded like a bunch of hating & blaming of ‘a certain person they keep giving a show to’ as the reason her show ideas aren’t happening. Am I trippin? Who is she talking about in this video then?” Kandi wrote.
Kandi continued, “FYI I do not have the power to stop anyone from doing anything on Bravo. I show support to every project that my castmates do. TV, business, or whatever they are doing, I always post for them even if we don’t get along. I don’t understand the shade towards me. I stay in my lane & I’m not blocking anyone. Anyway, Nene, we can discuss this at [the] reunion, but since you talked about it on your live, I figured I’d help the people get a little clarity on why I feel the way I feel.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
Thoughts on NeNe’s claims? And Kandi’s response?
