NeNe Leakes ‘Negotiating’ Discrimination Lawsuit With Andy Cohen And Bravo!

According to court records obtained by Page Six, NeNe Leakes is in talks with Andy Cohen, Bravo, and NBCUniversal to potentially settle the discrimination lawsuit she filed against them outside of court.

An Atlanta judge granted the parties a 45-day extension on Wednesday until August 19 after the defendants requested more time to “negotiate” the dispute, the court doc read.

In a motion filed on June 24, Cohen Bravo, and NBCUniversal argued that per contract agreements existing between them and the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum the ongoing disputes are “already subject to arbitration in New York.”

According to legal experts via Page Six, arbitration is a process in which two parties in a dispute use an independent, impartial third party to settle.

The motion also noted, however, that Leakes “disagrees” with the notion of arbitration, but that both parties are “in the process of negotiating this issue in an attempt to avoid the time and expense of a motion to compel arbitration” through their respective counsel.

Since both sides “agreed” that a 45-day extension is “appropriate to complete these
discussions,” the judge granted the deadline extension.

If you recall, NeNe filed the lawsuit in April over claims that she suffered years of racist remarks from former co-star Kim Zolciak-Biermann.

The former RHOA star alleged that only she dealt with consequences from the network and their respective production companies because they “foster a corporate and workplace culture in which racially-insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not, encouraged,” according to the lawsuit via Page Six.

Leakes told has maintained that she has been “blacklisted” from booking other jobs in the entertainment space as a result of her speaking out, according to the publication. “I was constantly being retaliated against, being blacklisted, not able to work, being silenced, and so, you know, it was difficult to do,” she told TMZ in May.
