You may recall how Leakes and her former frienemy Sheree Whitfield parted ways last season (if not CLICK HERE to watch a drag queen re-enactment), well word on the curb is that it was Leakes who issued the final order to give Whitfield the boot.
We all know Sheree was fired…. even though she tried to save face with an official statement saying she “Quit.”
Fast forward to today and Nene is finally spilling the tea about her former co-star being fired from the hit docu-drama.
Leakes sets the record straight on what REALLY happened to the former housewife and says that Whitfield, as well as fellow EX-housewives Lisa Wu-Hartwell (aka Sharon Millette) and DeShawn Snow all have something in common.
Nene did a recent interview with Vulture.com where she stated:
The producers chose not to pick up her option for this past season. I know she’s out there telling people that she decided to leave the show, but from what I KNOW that is not what she decided to do. That is what THEY decided to do.
She put out whatever reports she wanted to put out, and I don’t think they tried to challenge it because they don’t really give a s—t at the end of the day.
Leakes also believes that Whitfield, as well as previous ex-Atlanta Housewives
Lisa Wu-Hartwell Sharon Millette and DeShawn Snow all have a common denominator as to why they are no longer members of the RHOA clique.
I feel like they’re all gone for a reason, and I don’t think any of them were smart enough to stick around for this long, and I don’t think any of them were smart enough to use this platform in ways they could have used it.
They’re gone and I don’t think that they’re missed. Both (current cast member) Kandi (Buruss) and I have a business sense. That’s one thing a lot of girls on the show don’t have.
Some people come on these shows to be famous. I was never interested in fame. I was always interested in supporting my family. (source)
Welp… I guess that all sounds about consistent to what I’ve been telling you all along.
At any rate… I knew y’all were smart enough to know that Sheree would not willingly walk away from such an easy job.
What do you think of Nene’s comments about her former RHOA co-stars?
