NeNe Leakes claims she’s been “blacklisted” from getting any jobs in showbusiness by her former bosses at Bravo and NBCUniversal.
This comes amid the former reality TV star’s discrimination lawsuit over alleged treatment during her time on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“Yes, I’ve been blacklisted – when you haven’t worked in three years when all of a sudden you’re working and sought after, and suddenly you’re not working, it’s being blacklisted,” NeNe told TMZ. “I haven’t caused any problems on any set; everybody I’ve ever worked with I had a good working relationship with, except for this group of people.”
NeNe also claims that Bravo did all they could to stop her from taking any legal action against them for years. As a result, she went from being booked for work constantly to not being able to get a job anywhere in Hollywood.
When it comes to what NeNe hopes to accomplish with her lawsuit, the RHOA OG says she hopes it will end discrimination against black women.
“The goals are to stop discrimination against black women,” NeNe admitted. “Stop discrimination. That’s just the goal.”
In April, NeNe sued Bravo’s parent company, NBCUniversal, True Entertainment, and Andy Cohen for alleged racism on RHOA.
“NBC, Bravo, and True foster a corporate and workplace culture in which racially-insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not encouraged,” the filing alleges.
The lawsuit also alleges that NeNe’s complaints of racism led to her being forced off the show in 2020.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
