With her hilarious one-liners and unprecedented ability to throw shade, NeNe Leakes may be one of the most quotable stars in Housewives history, but lately she’s been making headlines over her legal battle with Bravo and Andy Cohen.
Back in April, the former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star filed a discrimination lawsuit against Bravo, executive producer Andy Cohen and the production companies behind the series. Now — according to new court documents acquired by E! News and People — Leakes has dropped the case.
“Leakes hereby dismisses this action and all claims asserted by Leakes without prejudice, thereby concluding this case before this Court at this time,” the documents read. “All Parties consent and stipulate to the foregoing dismissal. No party will seek recovery of costs or attorneys’ fees in any submission to this Court.”
In the original lawsuit, Leakes had accused the defendants of violating federal employment and anti-discrimination laws, claiming that they fostered “a corporate and workplace culture in which racially-insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not, encouraged.” Leakes also alleged that her former RHOA co-star Kim Zolciak-Biermann made racist comments for years without any consequences from the network.
While Zolciak-Biermann was not listed as a defendant, the original lawsuit stated that she “was allowed and permitted to engage in racially-offensive conduct and/or make racially offensive statements.”
Zolciak-Biermann addressed the lawsuit in an interview on The Nightcap with Carlos King in June. “She knows what she’s saying is not true in regards to me,” she said. “That’s ridiculous and she knows it. So, I’ll deal with her when she’s done with them.”
