NeNe Leakes, the highest paid star of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” may be fired over a physical brawl that involved one of her co-stars and a male producer it has been revealed.
The 44-year-old and her co-star Kandi Burruss, 35, “get into a fight with production” during the filming of season five, and “It’s really bad,” according to the New York Daily News.
“[They] have been real divas this season,” a source told the Daily News before confirming that the incident will likely air during the upcoming season.
It is unclear what prompted the altercation, but Leakes was reportedly the aggressor and she is believed to have “struck” a member of Bravo’s production staff.
Bravo TV, the network which airs the popular reality TV show, reportedly has a zero tolerance policy for violence against crew or staff members, and because Leakes is allegedly in breach of her contract over the incident, she may ultimately be let go, according to Media Take Out.
Leakes could become the second veteran Atlanta Housewife to be fired this year, after he former co-star and friend-turned-enemy Sheree Whitfield was let go.
