During her standup act in Oakland, CA this past weekend, NeNe Leakes responded to a booing heckler in the audience by saying she hoped the woman got raped by her Uber driver. Unfortunately, she meant the real deal and not just rape by 7x surge pricing. It seems NeNe (for once) understands that she was in the wrong.

Considering NeNe has stubbornly double downed on her prior outrageous claims (like saying Kim Zolciak‘s daughter Brielle Biermann brought critters into her bathroom by way of her pussy purse), an apology this is pretty surprising. But some say it comes down to cash.
Radar says Real Housewives Of Atlanta producers have deemed NeNe a liability and said that her job is “on the line.” RHOA produces a particularly potent breed of crazy, so one would assume everyone’s job is always on the line, but sources say NeNe’s rape rant may have genuinely gone too far:
“There will be a punishment and they are determining what it will be. There’s been so much backlash and costars say she’s gone too far and they want her gone. By tomorrow there should be some repercussion from a leave of absence to being fired.”
I think an acceptable form of punishment should be to force her to film that road trip show she and Kim were supposed to do a few years back when they reconciled. Eighteen hours on the road with nothing but “Tardy For The Party” and “Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing” on loop is far worse than going to an actual jail!
The same source says that Phaedra Parks is being floated as NeNe’s replacement (which naturally means the source is her and none of this is true). Honestly, they should just replace NeNe with one of Kandi Burruss‘s vibrators since it won’t talk as much, will likely make everyone smile more, and won’t hiss all the time about making sure it gets paid more than Bethenny Frankel. Case closed! Bloop!
