Months after Nene Leakes announced that she was suing Bravo TV after being fired from the Real Housewives of Atlanta, her former friend Kim Zolciak-Biermann is speaking out, Media Take Out confirmed.
Back in April, news of Nene’s lawsuit surfaced with documents showing that the reality star accused Bravo of allowing her RHOA castmate Kim to make racially insensitive statements on the show. When Nene complained about unfair racial treatment, Nene argues that she was unfairly terminated.
In one episode, Kim Zolciak-Biermann reportedly said, “I don’t want to sit around with NeNe and eat chicken.” In another episode, Kim called Kandi Burruss Black upper class Atlanta neighborhood “ghetto” and dubbed Nene’s home to be a “roach nest.”
During her visit to The Nightcap with Carlos King, Zolciak-Biermann denied the allegations that she was racist or made racist comments.
“[NeNe] knows what she’s saying is not true in regards to me,” Zolciak-Biermann said. “That’s ridiculous, and she knows it.” She added, “I’ll deal with her when she’s done with them. You can’t say things that aren’t true and try to defame somebody.”
However, Leakes’s lawsuit against the reality-centered network stated otherwise.
“NBC, Bravo and True foster a corporate and workplace culture in which racially-insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not, encouraged,” the lawsuit claimed. Check out Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s clip below.
