LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 17: NeNe Leakes attends VH1 Hip Hop Honors: The 90s Game Changers at Paramount Studios on September 17, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

A rep for Nene Leakes recently said that the reality TV star isn’t a part of a rumored discrimination lawsuit against Bravo. A source close to Leakes told TMZ that Leakes is not preparing to file suit or any type of legal action against the television network at this time, nor is she “teaming up” with other women of color who might be considering such.

The gossip site was told that Leakes is currently focused on herself and her own career, specifically, prepping for her newly announced show with E!, Glamsquad Showdown. The reality star is also attempting to work through negotiations with Bravo on possibly returning for another reason for Real Housewives of Atlanta. Leakes is also seeking a larger television role in NBCUniversal TV-sphere.

People might have assumed that something was brewing with Leakes due to innuendo and the fact that Leakes has alluded to being mistreated during her tenure on RHOA, both explicitly and implicitly.

Leakes had recently gone on her Youtube channel and aired out a few grievances regarding how she felt some of the RHOA showrunners and executives were treating her differently than some of the women during the show’s last reunion. She also made a few suggestive comments regarding the ‘Vaderpump’ racism scandal from a few months ago. In addition to that former RHOA costars like Eva Marcille have been naming Leakes when mentioning this rumored lawsuit that’s forthcoming.
