AceShowbiz - Season 11 of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" puts one of its highlights on NeNe Leakes, who assaulted a cameraman in one episode of the Bravo reality TV show. During the third and final part of current season's reunion, it was revealed that her victim was sent to the hospital as she got his tooth knocked out when she tried to stop him from filming her closet.
According to MTO News, the 51-year-old TV star had to give her $200K an episode salary to the cameraman. The star, who is said to be making $5M per season on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta", was also reportedly suspended for one episode following her violent meltdown.
In the Sunday, April 21 reunion episode of the network's highest rated show, co-star Porsha Williams revealed that the man "got choked up, scratched up, went to the hospital." NeNe, who insisted that she didn't hit the man but only pulled his T-shirt, asked, "Did he go to the hospital? I didn't hear nothing about that."
"He absolutely did and absolutely had scratches on his back. Choked up and head drug against the wall," Porsha replied. Kandi Burruss chimed in, saying that "his tooth got knocked out."
"The producer that she choked up was [holding his hands up in the air], making sure that every move was on him from her," Porsha went on adding. "And then NeNe comes in, and she said, 'I said get out!' "
The closet drama resulted in NeNe feuding with Porsha and Kandi, who insisted to go to check out the former's private closet even though she said no. Porsha, who was pregnant at the time, accused NeNe of pushing her during the chaos.
"I felt a hand on my back, and my belt came off, and I went forward. So at that point, I was like, 'Okay, you know what? She means it.' And once I walked on out the closet, that's when I saw the man's shirt ripped, and then I saw her choking up the producer. And that's exactly what happened," Porsha detailed.
The two were engaged in social media war in the recent weeks with Porsha accusing NeNe of body-shaming her post-baby bod instead of sending her positive message after she gave birth to her daughter Pilar. NeNe fired back by sharing a slew of screenshot photos of her congratulating Porsha for her baby.
