NeNe Leakes has been suffering tons of backlash since her tasteless joke at a stand-up show. She lost her hosting gig at Xscape's upcoming tour, and there have been rumors of her being fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta. Now, the producers of the reality show supposedly have a trick up their sleeve.
According to theJasmineBrand.com, the producers are looking to get licensing and clearing to air the viral rant on the show. NeNe was recorded telling a heckler at her Oakland, California, gig, "I hope your Uber driver rapes your a*s tonight, b***h." The site reports, "Sources tell us that RHOA producers are scrambling to try and get licensing permission to air it on the upcoming season of the show. 'They want to add it as part of her storyline this season. NeNe doesn’t want it on the show.'"
Is it too far to air such a vile joke on television, especially when NeNe doesn't want it to air and anyone can view it online? It's a rough world out there in reality television.
