NeNe Leakes has always been regarded as something of a problem child on The Real Housewives of Atlanta after having issues with several of her cast mates, but during a recent reunion, Leakes revealed some of the things that happened to her in the past to make her the way she is today.
Leakes said she felt like she was being attacked during a group therapy session after several of her costars began airing their grievances with her, including Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, and Claudia Jordan. Leakes said she felt like the counselor, Dr. Jeff, allowed everyone to play the victim when it came time to talk about their issues with her, but that she wasn’t being listened to.
“I don’t want to be a victim. I never want to be a victim. I’m a strong woman. My mother didn’t raise me. My father never claimed me…everybody had all these issues that caused them to feel this way when I was in the room,” NeNe said.
The brief talk about her family caused NeNe to break down in tears, which surprised the others at the reunion; Leakes is normally not one to show emotion, but once she opened up a little about her past, everything came flooding back. Eventually, once the other women found out what had happened to NeNe, they were able to form a bond and said they wanted to move past what had happened.
NeNe and one of her former costars, Kim Zolciak, had their share of issues in the past but are moving on to their own show called NeNe And Kim: The Road To Riches. Zolciak said it will be nice to spend time with her friend without all the drama that came with The Real Housewives.
“It will be good not having anyone interfering with NeNe and I. We’re back to we started twelve years ago, no other noise. No other people talking nonsense. It will just be her and I and we have a really good time,” Kim said.
