In Touch magazine has learned that NeNe Leakes has given producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta an ultimatum regarding next season.
NeNe “has told producers that she won’t appear on the show next season if Kim [Zolciak-Biermann] is involved,” a show source reveals to In Touch, explaining that their recent feud has pushed NeNe, 50, to her breaking point.
The women have been at war since early October, when NeNe berated Kim’s daughter Brielle Biermann, 20, for posting a Snapchat video of herself in NeNe’s home posing next to a bug on the floor. (After NeNe called out Brielle and Kim in a since-deleted Instagram post that suggested they’re racist, Kim hired famed attorney Marty Singer to take NeNe to court over the comments.)
“NeNe’s feud with Kim has totally drained her,” the show source explains to In Touch. “She’s done playing games and has made it clear she won’t stay on if Kim is there, too.”
An insider close to NeNe denies that the star has issued the ultimatum, but the source says the show’s producers aren’t happy. “It’s a tricky situation for them as they don’t want to lose either talent,” says the show source. “They want to keep both stars on the show.”
