[NEW PHOTOS] EXCLUSIVE: Nene Leakes NOT FIRED From RHOA Attends Bravo Upfronts in NYC

The 2014 NBC Bravo Upfronts are happening right now! (May 15). Real Housewives from Atlanta, New Jersey, New York, Beverly Hills and Orange County along with other Bravolebrities are preset to represent Bravo.

The Bravo Upfronts are very important to the network. It’s a time for Bravo to showcase their entire portfolio to advertisers in response to marketplace demand. So Bravo only invites their top-notch Bravolebrities from every show to represent them.

The media has often used the Bravo Upfront attendees as a  gauge to determine who’s in and who’s out!

One stand out on the Red Carpet is,  Nene Leakes. Nene has been rumored to be fired or demoted to a “friend of a housewife,” however as we reported Nene is not going anywhere. Nene is in attendance and all smiles. Not the image of a recently fired housewife. As you all know had Nene “Rich B*tch” Leakes been fired she would not be in attendance to happily a promote a show she no longer works for.

UPDATE: We’ve gotten a report from someone who attended the Upfronts and they’re saying Nene’s attitude was gross! She treats her fans poorly.

  • Norrth

    Wasn’t Sheree scheduled to attend the upfronts the year she was let go? I can’t lose my hope that this chick is GONE!

    • LOLOL!!! I hear ya honey. Did Sheree actually attend?

      • kim

        no she did not lol….sheree was nowhere near the bravo upfronts…..where do people get there info…the pictures were all on the internet and only 4 rhoa cast members were there…and all 4 even took a picture together

        • oh ok…thanks for the info, Kim! 🙂

    • iam1erica

      She attended and was let go shortly thereafter.

      • Hi iam1erica! If Nene was fired she would not be there clowning with Andy and smiling. You know Moose just could not do it.

        • iam1erica

          I 100% agree with that. Her ego is too big

      • I just checked and Sheree did not attend the Bravo Upfronts. She was on vacation when she got fired.

      • Elaine

        So does not mean nay Nay could be gone?

  • Kandi looks AMAZING! Todd did that gal good!

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed Doc. I was wondering if Kandi had some kind of body alterations. Her figure is perfect.

      • Hi Marsie….Agreed. She’s doing something right….maybe the gym…whatever it is…she looks fab!

        • Birdie11

          I think that dress is working for her…probably some good underwear too!

        • RealitySuxx

          Todd and Kandi work out together…she’s on a whole new fitness regimen…down to a Nutritionst!!

          • Thanks for the info RS! You can tell, she looks amazing!!!

      • iam1erica

        It’s probably a shaper. Kandi has lumps and bumps…she’s not that smooth.

  • Michael

    I’m guessing the reason NeNe and Kandi were at the Upfronts event, is because both of them will have their own spinoffs airing before the next season of #RHOA whether NeNe is asked back for another season or not.

    • Nene has her own spin-off? I know about Kandi’s ….do tell?

      • Michael

        I had thought that I Dream of NeNe had been renewed for season 2. I went back a looked at Bravo’s new and returning shows announcement, and it wasn’t on the list, but the announcement did say that there were more announcements to come.

        • Ok thanks. I don’t think the ratings were good. You would think as big and bold of a character Nene is she could pull off her own show but it was rather boring.

          • Elaine

            I watched couple of episodes and it was boring as hell she can’t carry a show she has nothing going on, at least cynthia has her modeling agency

          • LOL–Totally agree! Nene is nothing without RHOA. Everything she does on her own flops! New Normal = FAIL, I Dream of Nene = FAIL, Celebrity Apprentice = FAIL, DWTS = FAIL

    • kim

      rhoa is not letting nene go..that was a dumb rumor…obviously her and andy are still tight,..they were taking pics together at the bravo event

      • Michael

        I wouldn’t put too much stock in NeNe & Andy’s friendship just because there are pic of them at the same event. Of course Andy would be seated with Housewives, they are his baby. Andy is always polite to his employees, as well as former employees, in public. Remember, he did sit down with Jill Zarin for a 1-on-1 long after she had been fired. NeNe disrespected Andy and the #RHOA with her behavior at the reunion, especially the comment about pulling Andy’s pants down and kissing his ass. I’m sure your boss would fire you ifd you disrespected him/her in public like that. The only thing NeNe has on her side are the past seasons ratings, and if Bravo/Andy thought that it was NeNe bringing in the viewers, they would have announced that her ‘I Dream of NeNe’ spinoff would have been renewed in their recent announcement. The didn’t hesitate to renew Kim and Bethenny’s spinoffs.

  • TaudryHepburn

    I see (on Kyle’s twitter & fb) that the Richards sisters and Yolanda are at the upfronts, so it seems any hope that any of them may not be returning next season has been dashed 🙁

    • Hi Taudry Hepburn…..Ugh!!!

      • TaudryHepburn

        Hi Dr Seuss 🙂

  • SAMRA1116

    Was there an 18 wheeler available??? That’s the only way Nene is leaving.
    Ugh ATL is her main money, she needs to get her ass, off her back, her attitude stinks.

    • Marsbars09

      True dat! I don’t see how the Bravo celebrities can look her in the face. She’s so repulsive.

      • SAMRA1116

        She has friends in the HWS — they have a few just like her.

        • Marsbars09

          I guess. I just couldn’t deal with her.

          • Birdie11

            If I ever met her, I think a disgusted look would appear on my face, and it would be beyond my control.

          • Marsbars09

            I heard that.

  • NiKki-T

    Maybe Ne-Ne can have her own show entitled, “Ne-Ne and Friend(s)” or something similar.

    • Marsbars09

      I don’t think Bravo should give her sh*t, she hates being on the show so much.

    • WestCoastFeed

      NeNe and Greg. She doesn’t have any friends left.

      • LOLOL! 🙂

      • Tigerlily

        Was just about to say, ‘What friends?’ What friend, for that matter?

    • Hi Nikki-T…..great idea…anything to get her off of RHOA is good in my book!

  • Marsbars09

    I guess Moose isn’t fired after all. Damn! I wonder what kinds of terms to her contract she accepted.
    This proves how disgusting, lowdown, and probably fake Andy Cohen and Bravo really are. They are going to re-hire someone that insults and disrespects the gay population on national TV? I don’t know if Andy is Nene’s boss anymore, but she dissed him as well. If it were any normal corporation Nene would have been given the pink slip.
    I don’t think I will ever view RHOA the same way again. This franchise is on it’s way to the gutter.

    • Well said, Marsie!

    • Bonita Gee

      I think she’s STILL fired. Showing at the Upfronts could have been something STIPULATED in her contract she HAD to do fired or not.

      • Marsbars09

        I don’t think Moose would be smiling if she knew she’d been fired.

        • Bonita Gee

          No I STILL think she’s been fired. that smile is just her natural arrogance. She’s probably thinking ”so what I’m still employed. I have my Cirque de Soleil’s Zumanity DEAL! BOOP! i’M RICH BITCH!”
          It’s just pure ARROGANCE! it’s her nature to grin all the time like she has the upper hand in everything.

          • We are talking about Nene here. She gets an attitude over nothing much less something as big as being fired.

          • Elaine

            The zumanity deal is just for a couple of days as an old washed up stripper she’s perfect for that show.

      • Hi Bonita….Upfronts are not contractually obligated, it’s invitation only. Only 3-4 housewives attend to represent each franchise. If Nene was fired Bravo would not parade a volatile person in front of advertisers. This is a major event for the network to impress advertisers and basically keep the lights on. Without advertisers there would not be any NBC/Bravo shows.

        • Bonita Gee

          yeah but then again she could be showing up to stay relevant and think that’s her was of ”networking” herself to get more deals like Zumanity..
          so she’s NOT obligated but it could be by her own business decision thinking she’ll benefit from it either way……

          • Girl….you sound like you’re talking about a rational, level headed person like Lisa Vanderpump, who keeps her cool under stress. Miss Nay-Nay from Athens, Georgia is a moose in a China shop. She’s shown us (many times) she irrational and lacks self control. Sorry but I’m not buying Nene would keep her cool (at such a major event) after being fired.

          • Bonita Gee

            Okay NO she’s NOT a Cool or level headed person, but some people especially her have EGOS that BIG and arrogance. IF she is fired it’s just NOT phasing her right now.
            I’m buying it because like I said… I REALLY believe she’s that arrogant.
            But lets just say she’s NOT FIRED for NOW… You have to look at it like this; the next season Premier of RHOA hasn’t aired yet and probably hasn’t started the taping for next season…. so who’s to say they won’t fire her between now and then..
            It’s possible.

    • Elaine

      Well said, Andy handed his balls! To the big moose a long time ago she is disrespectful to him and Bravo and they seems to think the public still want her, she walked off celebrity apprentice, fight with her partner Tony on DWTS the woman is an ego maniac
      used to like her not anymore.

  • Marsbars09

    Kandi’s hourglass figure is perfect. I wonder if she had some kind of body contouring?
    Sonja looks skinny and gaunt.

  • WestCoastFeed

    No Teresa.

    • Feds Watching….gotta keep a low profile.

    • JZ

      she’s probably busy plotting a bank robbery

      • WestCoastFeed

        Or our on the street corner peddling bottles of Fabellini. $10.00 a bottle. Cash only. No receipts.

      • LMAO!!! Good one JZ!

  • Birdie11

    Moose in a giant black bra? Pass the brain bleach, please.

    • WestCoastFeed

      At least she wore one of her better wigs. Be thankful for small favors, Birdie.

      • Birdie11

        The Donald Trump Sports Edition.

        • Marsbars09

          Great snark, birdie.

        • ROFL!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi birdie! How are you?

      • Birdie11

        I’ve been so busy…a lot going on. But I’m fine…how are you sweet Marsie?

        • Marsbars09

          I’m trying to stay cool. It’s hot as beets in my parts.

          • Birdie11

            No AC?

          • Marsbars09

            No. I gotta rely on my little fan to keep me cool. 🙁

          • OH GAWD….was AC usage banned bc of the fires?

          • Marsbars09

            No, I just don’t have it.

          • Oh ok.

    • Hee-hee-hee-HILARIOUS!!!!

      Missed ya yesterday chika! 🙂

      • Birdie11

        UGH! SO busy…I hate it, Miss you all too…I am so behind this week!

        • I was wondering what happened to my sweet Birdie. Are you near those terrible fires?

          • Birdie11

            Nope…Florida. Drove thru a torrential downpour today with tornado warnings…such fun.

          • I know what those downpours are all about and y’all get big ass rain drops too…ugh! sorry boo!

          • Birdie11

            Something new today…someone next to me drove thru a lake puddle and flooded my windshield for about 5 seconds…I felt like I was underwater and almost had to stop in a 45 mph zone..it was nuts.

          • Sorry! Those are the worse! I get that a lot here and when it rains, these mofo’s here think they’re at a raceway speedway. They drive faster than when it’s dry. Can you imagine a Ford 150 pick-up going 100 mph in a torrential rain?

          • Birdie11

            Jump over to NY thread when you can…I need someone to catch up with!!

          • on my way!

    • Tigerlily

      Here ya go Birdie!

      • Birdie11

        Excellent!!

      • nan/4

        LOL!! Love it. ;-))

        • Tigerlily

          Thanks Hon! Wish they had a real version sometimes between Tre in that vinyl skirt with the ‘squatting’ pose & Neigh Neigh in her bra? & me having a super-duper memory I’ll never be able to get those images out of my head! LOL! Oh LAWDY!

          • nan/4

            Now I have combined those two images in my mind……HELP!!! I NEED BRAIN BLEACH, AND I NEED IT NOW!!!! lol

            Hope all is well with you and yours, sweetie.

            Later, gator! 😉

          • Tigerlily

            OMG Nan! Could you just imagine a Tre/NeighNeigh combo child? Ahhhhh, Call an exorcist! Now that would be some kind of chit demon just too scary to imagine! Although considering the size of each of their heads if you combined them the thing would probably not be able to walk upright! LOL!

            Thanks Honey, hope all is well with you & yours too! ☮
            After a while crocodile!

  • Bonita Gee

    Just because Nene is showing in the Upfronts doesn’t mean anything.. All it COULD mean is that she was obligated to do that in her contract fired or not fired. It can be something that was a stipulation in her contract to finalize, fired or not…
    That’s my theory. I believe she’s still fired. and it’s probably just extra money she’ll make right before she LEAVES RHOA for good. Heeeeee heeeeeee!! Bye Girl!

    • WestCoastFeed

      She looks awfully happy for someone whose contract has not been renewed.

    • Highly unlikely, Bonita. Upfronts are not contractually obligated, it’s invitation only. Only 3-4 housewives attend to represent each franchise.

  • Tigerlily

    No Brandi? No Lisa Vanderpump?
    Where’s the queen? Tre.

    • Hey hon! Yes, they were all there. I will respond to ya mail shortly, love.

      • Tigerlily

        Ahh okay. Didn’t see all the pics.

        • My bad T-Lily! Lisa and Brandi did not attend.

          • Tigerlily

            Hmmmmm. Prior commitments maybe or unwilling to play nice? I wonder?

          • Hi Honey. I’m a little behind today. I owe you (didn’t forget)

            True. From what I gather on Twitter….Brandi is conveniently on vaca and Lisa is busy with the opening of PUMP. Lisa told E! online she was asked back for another season. She didn’t say if she accepted or not.

          • Karma

            Brandi had a prior commitment too. She was at a Comcast party, which is the company that owns NBCUniversal/Bravo.

          • Thank you, Karma! Great info.

          • Karma

            You’re welcome! 😉

          • Karma

            Here’s another tidbit.

            That same night, Lisa was at a charity event hosted by the UFC and Rhonda Rousey.

            Of course, this just might be a coincidence, but to set up why that might be interesting. Rhonda Rousey recently negated her contract with her old management. They discovered, financially supported, trained, and developed her talent into what she is today.

            Her old management is Darin Harvey, Brandi’s favorite ex-husband.

  • TartLemon

    Was Kenya there? I see the Richards hags are back.

    • WestCoastFeed

      The last tweet I saw from her was a couple of days ago. She was on vacation and off on a long flight to London. I am guessing that it also includes a trip on to Nigeria.

      • TartLemon

        Is hers the same Nigerian Prince who has been e-mailing ME? Even promised to send me $$.

        • WestCoastFeed

          No, that’s my Nigerian prince. She actually does have a group of Nigerian friends that she visits in Lagos.

          • TartLemon

            Seems odd Kenya would miss a chance to flaunt on camera. Sheree was conveniently ‘on Family vacation’ when she was fired.

          • WestCoastFeed

            After being physically assaulted and having her property stolen on the same day, I think she just wanted to get far away from Bravo and Atlanta and recoup. Especially if her lover really does live there.

          • I agree.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            No, you are both wrong!! He has been emailing me and needs my money!!

    • No–Kenya is in Europe.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Good for Kenya.

  • SAMRA1116

    Wow Kandi looks good, hope she keep dressing better. No excuse for the outfits she wears.
    Todd make sure she doesn’t go back, looking good n happy.

  • SDC

    Great, Kim Richards will be back. UGH!!! -________-

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Double Ugh!!

      • Morning lovely Naws!! 🙂

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Good morning sweet Doc!!

          • So no fire…Lisa V is not quitting? 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            No, No, I think she is just dragging her feet!!

          • Thanks for the info….I think you’re right!

    • Triple Ugh!!!! Happy Friday, SDC!

  • RealitySuxx

    Love to see Kandi looking so happy … not surprised Nene continues to act as the ogre she is. I hope they re-tool Flipping Out – I love Jenni and Jeff…but the show is ridiculous…I still hate Gage! LOL I want less focus on their office crapola and more focus on the business.

    …and I am sure that BRAVO is sweating over Lisa V….I really am torn about her quitting and focusing on her restaurants – or coming back with a big ol’ middle finger to her horrible cast mates.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Did I miss something?? Did Lisa V quit???

      • RealitySuxx

        I don’t think she quit – but I think BRAVO won’t stop sweating until she actually starts filming.

        When I said I was torn, I mean I WANT her to quit and focus on her restaurants…but I also do NOT want her to quit – and to return to stick it to those bitches.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Thank you for the info!!!

        • Morning RS! Happy Friday!!!!!!!!

          I saw her on E! last night and she said she’s been asked back. She was all smiles.

  • WestCoastFeed

    No Brandi? I would guess not. Advertisers would shy away from buying with her on the show. Doesn’t mean she won’t appear. Just means Bravo doesn’t want to remind the advertising folks that she exists.

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL is claiming that Bravo is unhappy with Teresa for not attending the Upfronts yesterday. Bravo has to know that she can’t risk any possible unfavorable publicity now just before her sentencing.

    • Who in their right mind would put Teresa in front of advertisers now? She’s a PR nightmare, just ask Wendy Feldman.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        She could always try and sell handcuffs!!! Or ankle bracelets!!!! She could be a spokesperson for law enforcement!!!!!!

        • LMFAOOO!!! Good one, Naws! 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed

        You have mail,

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yep, Bravo wants to sell advertising time, not drive it away by promoting a convicted felon.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    She should have thought of that last year!!!! She gets “unfavorable” publicity almost every day!!!!

  • RonnieIsBack

    I believe it…she is sooooo nasty and soooo rude.
    She could be there because of that mess I dream of Nene.
    Either way Moose has lost a ton of her fans….

  • RonnieIsBack

    I nee the corsette Kandi is sporting…Her waist looks teeeny..Wow!

  • iam1erica

    Upfronts is to discuss the upcoming season. The SHOWS will be back, but not necessarily the characters. just sayin

    • Upfronts have nothing to do with the upcoming season. It’s more to showcase Bravo shows to advertisers.

    • Bonita Gee

      Thank you…… Upfronts ARE for the upcoming season. And you are right, the show WILL BE BACK ”but not necessarily the characters”. Like you said. I agree.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    That’s kind of misleading! What a dumb thing to do!! Why bother???

    • Naws…it’s a big game to Nene, all done to drum up publicity.
