NeNe Leakes is in hot water with the producers of Real Housewives of Atlanta. First, she publicly accuses them and the network of staging the reunion fight between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore. Now, she’s posting up text messages that definitively prove that the entire drama during the reunion was scripted and planned in advance.
It all started when Cynthia Bailey and NeNe fought during the reunion, with NeNe calling Cynthia’s husband a ‘damn bitch’. Cynthia called NeNe out on it, saying that it was inappropriate and unacceptable behavior on NeNe’s part. However, NeNe is trying to prove that Cynthia’s full of it, since she posted a text message from all the housewives planning to call each other’s husbands ‘bitches’ to raise the drama and stakes.
Apparently, the text was sent just one day before the scene was filmed, and if the text message is legit, that means that this cast clearly knew [or were instructed] that they were going to get into fights. The screen grab of the message [via Radar Online] from Cynthia to NeNe had, “Change of plans for the scene. Not going to do the b*tch thing with Gregg. I thought it would be funny, but I really don’t want to call him out… even as a joke.”
Well, it looks like Cynthia was the only one who pulled out, because the rest of the ladies certainly had their hands full with all the insults they were hurling around. Even then, it’s obvious that this whole thing was scripted, so considering that Cynthia knew that, I don’t think she’s legitimately angry at NeNe – or if she, she’s mad that she was the only one who didn’t go through with the plan.
Again, this isn’t really a surprise. NeNe definitively hinted at behind-the-scenes manipulation, but can you blame the producers? We know most reality television is rarely actual ‘reality’, but considering that the reunion special brought so much attention to the show, the producers are going to justify their actions with the ratings.
