At the start of season 12, Leakes did not appear in the first few episodes. It’s rumored that her diva behavior and difficulty working with producers caused such.
Per Funky Dineva, a former production source told the popular vlogger that Leakes often got into tifts with production, walked off set, and refused to film certain scenes. Dineva alleges that some producers were even instructed to give into Leakes’ demands in order to complete filming.
Leakes alleges otherwise. She claims that executives behind the scenes began punishing her for speaking up about unfair treatment. She also alleges spinoff opportunities she presented were blocked and instead given to her former co-stars.
After months of speculation, Leakes confirmed she would not be returning to the show for season 13, citing failed contract negotiations as a reason. She claims she was phased out of the show and offered a minimal role. Leakes has called for a boycott of Bravo.
