Continuing to parlay her reality TV success into another career, Nene Leakes recently announced a series of comedy shows set to take place across America this summer. But thanks to her apparent legal action against “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Porsha Williams, fans are vowing to withhold their support for Leakes.
The star announced she’s going to be hitting up the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles as part of the “Ladies Night Out” comedy tour. The reality star-turned-comic will take the stage on Saturday, May 11 and will be joined by the likes of comediennes Loni Love, Kym Whitley, Sherri Shepherd, Adele Givens and Melanie Comarcho.
But while Leakes urged her followers to purchase tickets for the show on Ticketmaster on April 26, fans lit her up in the comments section and questioned her for allegedly serving Williams with a cease-and-desist letter.
“Hell no!!!!!!! Not a single cent to a person that have such of dark soul, nope.”
“NENE WHY DID YOU SEND MY GIRL PORSHA A CEASE AND DESIST? @neneleakes #TEAMPORSHA #STOPFATSHAMING.”
“Save your money.”
“How u gone send @porsha4real a cease and desist when you started the drama..I guess one of the ladies need to send u one.”
The news of Leakes sending over the paperwork to her one-time “lil sis” came when Williams spoke to People magazine in an article published Friday.
“After that whole Instagram back and forth that she started with me, she ended up sending me a cease and desist,” she claimed. “So once she sent me a cease and desist, at that point, I was like, ‘You know what? This is just a sure sign that I should be done with the relationship.’ So I’m over it. I’m concentrating on my baby girl. And people who love and support me at this moment.”
Williams expounded further on the issue as she made the rounds on various New York-based radio shows this week. Speaking on “The Breakfast Club,” the star said she fired off a cease and desist memo of her own to Leakes.
“That’s stupid, so I’m about to send you one back,” she said after saying she didn’t know why Leakes sent the legal paperwork in the first place. “Let’s just do this, then. Let’s just play.”
Leakes issued the notice to her friend-turned-foe after their text message exchange became public on Instagram in March. Both women traded barbs against one another, with each making fun of the other’s appearance. Williams fired off her text thread first, which followed Leakes’ YouTube video where she accused Williams of adding in that she was “scared” in the recording studio after Leakes allegedly assaulted her during her “Bye Wig” party on “RHOA.”
