NeNe Leakes: Shunned by Fellow Housewives! Career in Jeopardy?!

We don’t say this often, but it’s a good time to be Kim Zolciak. Because it’s a bad time to be NeNe Leakes.

As it turns out, going up on stage and telling a heckler that you hope she gets raped doesn’t make other people want to be around you. 

In fact, it sounds like NeNe’s costars are now shunning her. And that means less screen time. … Is this the end of NeNe’s career?

NeNe Leakes does stand-up, which in and of itself would be surprising but not a huge story.

We’ve heard of instances in the past of once-beloved actors tanking their careers because their stabs at stand-up lead to racist or otherwise deeply offensive rants.

It turns out that NeNe Leakes can offend and horrify with the worst of them.

After she attempted to do stand-up relating to Uber drivers and sexual assault, she was heckled. That’s not polite, but audience members often do it. It unfortunately goes with the territory of stand-up.

NeNe fixated on a single heckler, a woman, and said this:

“I ain’t even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver,” NeNe responded. “I hope he rape yo’ ass tonight when he take you home, b–ch. And steal yo’ funky hello kitty, b–ch.”

That is … an inexcusably vile response.

NeNe Leakes says that she had a breakdown and, to show that she knows how serious this was, NeNe Leakes has apologized.

Apologies are so important and they’re good, but she’s an adult and she should know that it takes a lot of time and discussion for people to be okay with you.

Apologies aren’t some sort of magical incantation that rewrites history and absolves you of your wrongdoings. Nothing can do that.

For now, NeNe Leakes sobbing and begging for forgiveness is exactly the right thing to do.

It’s not fun, but not saying terrible things isn’t actually all that hard. And it’s not like this was an old video, dredged up from years ago just to make her look bad.

She brought this on herself.

RadarOnline reports that some of the rest of the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta have responded to this scandal by refusing to film with NeNe Leakes.

In a lot of ways, that makes sense — sharing a screen with someone who is disgraced can tarnish your own name and brand.

This is no surprise, but the Real Housewives protest of NeNe starts with the one costar who could conceivably share screentime with NeNe without it reflecting poorly upon her.

“Kim Zolciak refuses to film with NeNe any further, so producers scrapped the all cast scene planned for last week.”

See, Kim Zolciak is feuding with NeNe. So Kim and NeNe sharing a screen and staring daggers at each other wouldn’t hurt Kim’s brand at all.

And then the hits keep coming …

“Porsha Williams is refusing to film with NeNe and is siding with Kim.”

And coming

“Sheree [Whitfield] is also siding with Kim.”

NeNe Leakes probably shouldn’t have ranted about Brielle Biermann and accused her of being racist right before saying something inescusable on stage, huh?

We have a feeling that Kim’s conscientious objection to sharing a screen with NeNe has a lot to do with the fact that this woman has been feuding with her and with her daughter.

One thing, though … it looks like NeNe is dipping her toes into the idea of playing the victim. This could backfire catastrophically for her if she does.

But some of the posts that she’s shared on social media have seemed less apologetic and more along the lines of “well, nobody’s perfect!”

That might give her diehard fans some ammunition, but it could majorly backfire for NeNe’s career.

Wishing rape upon somebody is not the hill that you want your reality career to die on.

American Idol Revival: In Jeopardy?

Ever since Katy Perry was confirmed as the first judge on ABC’s rebooted American Idol, there has been much speculation about who would be filling the other seats on the panel. 

Despite negotiations that feel like they’ve been dragging on for an eternity, it appears that the producers are no closer to filling up the panel than they were a few weeks ago

That’s a bit worrisome when you consider the fact that filming is scheduled to begin at the end of September. In an ideal situation, the panel would be locked in weeks before. 

Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan and Keith Urban were thought to be in the mix a few weeks back, but since no deals have been announced, it sounds like they do not like the deals being offered to them. 

According to TMZ, the thing holding up Lionel from signing on the dotted line is the proposed pay he would receive from taking on the role. The report states his management team is demanding $ 10 million for his services. 

However, producers only want to offer $ 5 million, and it’s unclear whether Lionel would sign for such an amount. The figure is huge, but Katy Perry is set to pocket $ 25 million for her services. 

That’s a big difference when you consider the fact that Lionel has been in the music business for much longer than Katy. Something tells us the producers are probably regretting offering the “Bon Appetit” songstress such a big payout. 

On top of that, producers are debating the number of judges to have on the panel. Previously, three seemed to be the magic number, but it sounds like there will be four. 

That’s assuming the panel can even be filled in time. 

Earlier this year, it was reported that Ryan Seacrest was lobbying for a figure similar to Perry’s but TMZ reports that he settled for somewhere between $ 10 to $ 15 million. 

What do you think about all of this?

Will the show find the right talent before the time is up?
