NeNe Leakes has dropped her lawsuit against Bravo producers and Andy Cohen after accusing the network of ignoring alleged racism claims on the set.
According to reports, a document filed on Friday (Aug.19) in Atlanta courts shared Leakes and Bravo had filed a joint dismissal without prejudice– meaning she can re-open the case in the future. The court documents confirming the dismissal does not state why NeNe decided to drop her claims at this time.
According to the document, “All Parties consent and stipulate the foregoing dismissal…No party will seek recovery of costs or attorney’s fees in any submission to this Court.”
NeNe was on The Real Housewives of Atlanta from season one, which aired in 2008, until season 12, which aired in 2019. Earlier this year the reality star turned businesswoman sued Bravo and Andy Cohen over claims that she suffered years of racist remarks from former co-star Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who is white.
The lawsuit says NeNe complained to executives about years of racist remarks from Zolciak-Biermann but that only NeNe suffered consequences.
Her suit names the defendants as NBCUniversal, Bravo, production companies True Entertainment and Truly Original, executives from the companies and Housewives executive producer Andy, but not Kim.
NeNe has also been pretty vocal about her issues with Andy Cohen since leaving “Real Housewives Of Atlanta.” In April, she claimed that Andy “sabotaged” negotiations surrounding her potential Sirius XM radio show. She’s also previously claimed the TV host is racist and aided to the alleged toxic work environment she experienced during her time on “RHOA.”
Following news Leakes drops the lawsuit many on social media speculate she could return to ‘RHOA’ next season.
