“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leake is allegedly threatening to quit the show if Kenya Moore isn’t fired, according to a report from urban gossip website Media Take Out. But another report says that the article is incorrect.
“NeNe has given Bravo word that she DOES NOT want to return for next season… unless Kenya Moore is fired. NeNe has basically given Bravo an ultimatum — fire Kenya, or she QUITS. And NeNe is serious about it too,” the report claims.
The website claimed that Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams could be replaed with newcomers–Natalie Williams and Mynique Smith.
Phaedra Parks might not also return due to problems with her husband’s legal situation. Apollo Nida was arrested a few weeks ago for charges related to tax fraud.
However, Gossip Cop, citing a source close to the matter, reported that the rumor about Leakes quitting is not true. “A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the rumor about Leakes threatening to quit is 100 percent not true,” the website states.
Media Take Out has made dubious claims about celebrities in the past, often times reporting on rumors.
Moore said that Nida is “definitely” going to jail.
“I’ve never seen him outside of Housewives tapings but we talk about it amongst the cast obviously. I don’t have anything to say to him after the lies he’s told on me. I don’t have a reason to have a conversation with him,” she said on the “Bethenny” show.
Nida was arrested for allegedly creating fake businesses, using stolen checks, and using false bank accounts, TMZ reported It drew attention from the Secret Service’s Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad.
Nida is alleged to have deposited millions of dollars in “stolen and fraudulently obtained checks” as well as “auto loan proceeds” and “US treasury checks,” reported ABC News.
“This is a really big deal for Apollo,” Steven Mindel, a certified family law specialist not connected to the case, told ABC News weeks ago. “Any time that the federal government files criminal charges against you, you can expect they’re looking for jail time.”
Nida was released on $25,000 bond earlier this mont and will appear in court in February.
Nida served time for racketeering charges before he was released from prison in 2009.
