A rep for Nene Leakes is denying a rumor that the reality TV star assaulted a Real Housewives of Atlanta producer. MediaTakeOut reported on Thursday that Nene might get axed from the program because of the alleged incident. According to the gossip website:
“…Nene and producers had been butting heads over filming since production began two months ago – and this week, it got PHYSICAL. Our insider claims that NeNe ‘struck’ one of the producers in the FACE during a scuffle.”
The website goes on claim:
“We’re told that the housewives are leaving today on their annual ‘Housewives Trip’ and when they return, the powers that be will decide what to do with NeNe.”
A rep for Bravo and a rep for Nene tell RumorFix that Nene will not be fired because the “physical assault” never happened. And Nene had this to say about the gossip just moments ago, writing on Twitter:
“I really do appreciate the press but can u guys come up wit a better story than that.”
Don’t give them a challenge Nene, because we all know they can.
