On Monday night, NeNe Leakes went live with civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump to speak about the abuse she had tolerated as a housewife at Bravos Real Housewives of Atlanta.
NeNe says that while she’s the biggest star on the show, others got promoted before her – and she hired Crump to take her troubles to the courtroom.

“It took a long time. If there are other women who have experienced racial discrimination or abuse of any kind, please contact us. You can email me or contact one of my representatives. I’ll be represented by Bryan Freedman, Ben Crump and supported by the great Al Sharpton firstname.lastname@example.org “she posted a post on her Instagram.
Some of the ladies got their own spinoff shows – but NeNe is reportedly not supposed to be offered the same type of deal from the network just yet.
“I think the closed-door treatment that most are unfamiliar with was not fair treatment,” she said. “And um, that’s a cry for Bravo to sit down at the table and have a chat with me and my team to correct some of the things that weren’t done right. That’s what this is about. So I know a lot of the fans who have tuned into Bravo over the years love some of the shows that are on Bravo. They love the real Housewives of Atlanta. I’m not saying they never see these shows. These are great shows. I say that we need your help. And we ask Bravo to sit down and have a chat. Let’s correct some of the things that have happened. “
She claims she doesn’t beat up Bravo.
