NeNe Leakes has deleted her Instagram.
The move comes after former ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ star Tamra Judge confirmed B. Scott’s exclusive report that NeNe Leakes was essentially fired from ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’
In case you missed it, Tamra shared a throwback photo of herself and the now-fired Dorinda Medley on Instagram and welcomed her to the ‘other side,’ referring to Housewives who are no longer on the show.
“@dorindamedley you will be missed icon, but it’s pretty amazing on the other side #Vicki #Tamra #leeann #Nene #LVP #Bethenny #dorinda gone but never forgotten,” she captioned the photo.
Not long after Tamra’s post began make headlines, NeNe deleted her Instagram account — but not before taking to Twitter to share some words about Black women.
Support Black Women, Protect Black Women! You have no idea what they’ve been thru or the WEIGHT they have carried on their backs silently for yearsssssssssss. Thank you! Bye

According to reports, Dorinda was fired from ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ for poor behavior and being ‘difficult.’
“The reunion was the final straw,” the source says. “Dorinda was very aggravated all season long and it was too difficult to work with her.”
“It’s obvious she needs to work on herself,” the source adds. “The reunion was rough and she wouldn’t acknowledge her bad behavior.”
As we previously explained, the network has a very clear way of pushing Housewives out — regardless of the verbiage they like to use.
The network will offer the ‘fired’ Housewife a bad deal for a fraction of the money and less episodes. This basically gives the ‘fired’ Housewife two options — accept the bad deal and make an image-saving exit while working for peanuts per episode, or to refuse the deal and announce her departure.
Ultimately, the network expects the Housewife not to return.
The network wins either way — the Housewife stays and the network gets to use her name and image for one more season at a fraction of the cost, or she leaves and the network uses what would’ve been her expensive salary to pay one or two new Housewives.
Although, since the network never technically ‘fired’ a Housewife in the legal sense, they’re protected to a certain degree if a Housewife were to threaten any type of wrongful termination or discrimination lawsuit.
It’ll be interesting to see if NeNe addresses Tamra at all…
