If you bought your tickets to see Nene open for the Xscape tour, I have good news and I have bad news.
The bad news is that Nene has been dropped from the tour after some distasteful comments toward a heckler at one of her shows. The good news is that you still get to “Kick off your shoes and relax your feet” with Xscape! See what I did there? You’ll also get to see Monica and Tamar Braxton sing their faces off!
But back to Nene…
If you are familiar with Mrs. Leakes, you know she stays booked and busy honey and one of her many gigs is that of a stand-up comedian. Well, according to US Weekly she was at a show last week in Oakland where she started talking about male Uber drivers trying to have sex with their female passengers when some hecklers started booing her. Well, the Real Housewives of Atlanta OG is not one to take criticism well so she zeroed in on a particular woman in the crowd and told her “"I ain't even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver. I hope he rape yo' ass tonight when he take you home, bitch," followed by, "And steal yo' funky hello kitty, bitch."
There is some grainy video footage of the exchange which was posted and chaos ensued. Nene has since apologize for her comments via her Facebook page saying "I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend," she continued, "Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so. As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used. I made a mistake and I should have known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I am sorry."
It seems #thelifeofnene has been marred with controversy lately because just a few days before her vocal faux paux in Oakland, she fired social media shots at the eldest daughter of fellow RHOA OG Kim Zolciak-Biermann. Brielle Biermann posted a video on Snapchat of what she claimed to be roaches at Nene’s house and the Fashion Police Host was not impressed. She went on to Instagram to say "We don't have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky p--sy!" and finishes by calling 20 year old Biermann "racist trash."
Mother Bear Kim quickly clapped back on Instagram saying "It's so sad and offensive that someone can stoop so low as to call someone a racist " Leakes former friend continued, "Everyone in my life knows that I am far from racist and unfortunately NeNe Leakes has tried for the last 10 years to paint that picture because that's her last resort."
All of this tea comes before the November 5th premier of the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta where Nene and Kim are back so this should be an interesting season.
