  • NeNe Leakes is asking her followers to stop watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

  • NeNe's comments comes after accusing Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams of being racists.

NeNe Leakes may have announced her decision to leave The Real Housewives of Atlanta back in September, but believe it or not, the drama is stillll going strong. After announcing her departure, she accused Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams of being racists for wondering what her career plans will be post-RHOA...and now she's straight up telling her fans to boycott RHOA altogether.

"Y’all ready to start this boycott yet? What has happened behind the scenes is WRONG!” she tweeted. “While others were being promoted, BLACK WOMEN who created shows, created genres, built franchise and built networks were being DEMOTED…TURN OFF YOUR TV’S.”

And for good measure, she added, “Sign the petitions when you see them, repost the boycott flyers when you see them, turn off your TVs.”

Despite how NeNe is feeling right now, she did acknowledge that being part of RHOA helped open up doors for both her and others in the Black reality television space.

“It wasn’t an easy decision for me. It was hard,” she said in a YouTube video announcing her decision to step back from the show. “I’m just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for Black ensemble reality shows. I want to thank everybody that has looked up to me over the years. I want to thank Bravo for all the memories. Thank you to the cast for all of the memories.”
