Kandi Burruss says she has “no opinion” on NeNe Leakes’ lawsuit targeting Bravo, Andy Cohen, and the production companies responsible for ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’

“I don’t think anything [of it],” Burruss, 45, sniffed to Page Six exclusively Tuesday at the opening night of “Strange Loop” on Broadway.
“I don’t have anything to say about it,” she continued. “Never! Absolutely have no opinion.”
Earlier this month, Leakes, 54, sued the companies behind the reality show, claiming that they fostered a racist work environment.
The suit alleged Leakes, who is black, had to endure years of racist remarks from fellow “Housewife” Kim Zolciak, who is white.
NBCUniversal, Bravo, production companies True Entertainment and Truly Original, executives from the companies and “Housewives” executive producer Andy Cohen were named as defendants.
“NBC, Bravo and True foster a corporate and workplace culture in which racially insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not, encouraged,” the suit claimed.
Leakes starred on “RHOA” from Seasons 1 to 7 and 10 to 12. Burruss, for her part, has been a regular cast member since Season 2.
The former co-stars are not on good terms these days, as Burruss claimed in March that Leakes had called her a racial slur.
“I don’t know what her problem is with me. I’ve seen her say all kinds of stuff,” the Xscape singer said on a TMZ podcast at the time.
“This right here pissed me the f–k off … when she said somewhere calling me a ‘c–n’ or something,” she claimed. “That right there, that’s when I was like, ‘OK, you know what …’”
Burruss was able to brush off the drama for a night when she checked out “Strange Loop” alongside Ronan Farrow, Queen Latifah, Tommy Dorfman, Jordan Roth and Bryan Cranston.
The “Kandi & The Gang” star, who co-produced the Broadway play “Thoughts of a Colored Man,” was thrilled to see the musical, which describes itself as “the big, black and queer-ass Great American Musical for all.”
“This is super exciting to see another wonderful show with representation, because representation matters!” she said. “To see love represented in this way, that hasn’t been accepted always, and now we’re here on Broadway and we’re going to see them on this wonderful stage.”
Kandi has always been a class act.
