Bravo Looking to “Punish” NeNe over Rape Joke + Kim Zolciak Preparing to Sue for Racist Allegations
Though she apologized, it looks like NeNe Leakes‘ joke about a woman getting raped by her Uber driver may cause her some money. RadarOnline reports that Bravo executives “can’t stand by her statement” and thus are “having a meeting with producers to discuss her future:”
“There will be a punishment and they are determining what it will be. There’s been so much backlash and co stars say she’s gone too far and they want her gone.
By tomorrow there should be some repercussion from a leave of absence to being fired. They are filming now and would have to figure out how it will play out.”
If she is again removed from the show, NeNe will lose a lot of money as she is currently making $2 million per season.
But that’s not all of NeNe. theJasmineBRAND reports that Kim Zolciak has hired a high-powered lawyer as a result of of her social media feud with her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star:
“Kim hired [a lawyer] to represent her and handle NeNe in light of Nene’s defamatory comments about Kim. [They] are advising Kim about what actions she can take.”
Kim later confirmed the news herself:
“I’ve hired legal counsel at this point. It’s just that bad.”
