Literally I could be wanting to scream, and on the outside I’m still preforming sic. The fact that I tell people no at all is therapeutic progress for me obvs.” The actress went on to say that “boundaries can sometimes be so difficult but when you people please or always try to avoid conflict, you let yourself down every time…”
NENE LEAKES CLAIMS BRAVO USED HER TAX DEBT TO KEEP HER SILENT ABOUT RACIST WORK ENVIRONMENT: New details are emerging about NeNe Leakes' lawsuit against Bravo. According to the Jasmine Brand, according to legal filings, NeNe has claimed that the network leveraged her hefty tax debt against her to keep her silent about the racism allegations. NeNe alleged that it all happened after her and Kim got into an argument following a girls trip where Kim's daughter called her home “roach infested.” NeNe later tweeted, “Kim & her daughter oops whole family are racists! What her daughter did at my home … was pure disgusting, racist, learned behavior etc.” According to court docs, NeNe took the issue to Bravo and RHOA producer Andy Cohen. She alleged that the network responded to Nene’s allegations by telling her publicly disparaging Kim was “bad for business”. Additionally, docs state the network forced Nene to remove her post, but allowed Kim to keep hers posted. Once the issue had settled, court docs state the network began to target Nene. Allegedly, Bravo began to raise concerns over a $824,000 tax lien. However, Nene’s legal team stated the move was “clearly retaliatory” as the network was previously informed about the debt.
