What is Nene Leakes looking for?

Leakes is one of the most recognizable reality TV stars thanks to her amazing reads and one-liners on the Bravo franchise. The former RHOA star was with the show for the first seven seasons and then returned for three additional ones. Leakes had been engrossed in a battle behind-the-scenes that ultimately led her to away from the series she helped make a success.

The Fashion Police alum has been crying for help on Twitter as she feels discriminated against. Leakes went on The Tamron Hall Show to express her feelings about what she is looking for from her former employer.

“I can’t tell you everything that I want from them but I can tell you that I want fair treatment,” Leakes said. “I deserve fair treatment, I haven’t done anything that no one else has done there, or haven’t done even worse … I don’t deserve this treatment. I’m as confused as you are.”

Despite what many think is a plea to have her peach back, Leakes assured Hall that she does not want to return to the show. She also said that she is not looking to get revenge for having been axed from the series.

“No, that’s not it at all,” she answered. “I don’t want to get them back. I would never sit here on national television and tell you that something has happened to me and it did not happen to me.”

What did Nene Leakes say at the time of her departure?

The Glee alum was in good spirits and there was no negativity around her departure. Leakes was thankful for the platform that The Real Housewives was in her life and seemed hopeful for all her future projects.

“You could’ve never told me that I would star on this little show and it’d still be going strong 13 years later,” Leakes reflected. “I’m just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for Black ensemble reality shows to step up and be a part of what we all now love so much, reality TV.”
