NeNe Leakes is all smiles after it was confirmed she's landed her own reality TV series after losing her peach on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The 52-year-old reality TV star was unceremoniously fired for insubordination and just a general bad attitude on the set of RHOA.

But the sassy former stripper landed a new show on the E! Television network title Glamsquad Showdown.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo Network and her manager broke down after the mom-of-two demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise but she turned it down.

NeNe was reportedly "hurt and depressed" over losing her six figure per episode salary on RHOA.

A source says the New York native was worried because she's responsible for three households, including her $2.1 million, six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath mansion in Duluth, her eldest son's home, and a rental property on the West Coast.

NeNe is the sole supporter for her unemployed husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor, whom she reportedly cheated on with a younger man.

The source says NeNe's finances have been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

With little money coming in from her clothing boutiques, NeNe reportedly took out loans to keep her finances afloat.

Her first round of applications for a federal grant and a PPP loan in March were rejected according to another source.

NeNe Leakes responded to allegations that she was let go from Real Housewives of Atlanta for insubordination and being a b*tch to her castmates.

"I promise I'll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love," she tweeted on Thursday, after blogger B. Scott reported she was fired from the reality TV series on his blog, lovebscott.com.

NeNe's manager also shut down rumors that she was dismissed from the cast after repeated acts of insubordination on and off the set.

"It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA," Leakes' manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. "Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be."

But B. Scott stands by his sources, and refused to retract his article.

A confidential source told Sandrarose.com that NeNe was "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her manager reportedly broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

It isn't clear why NeNe turned down the raise - or if she thought the 5% was beneath her.

A spokesperson for Bravo denied the reports that Leakes was not ousted from the series.

"There is no truth to this story- NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing," the spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

Remember, celebrity managers are paid to shield their clients from the truth.

NeNe Leakes reacted to reports that she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta by posting an Internet meme that shows her laughing out loud (see below).

She captioned the image: "I can't chileeeeeeee."

But behind closed doors, friends say NeNe is "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She's hurt and depressed," an insider whispered to Sandrarose.com late Wednesday night. "She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

The source said NeNe was "shocked" by her sudden termination, which was first reported by blogger B. Scott on Wednesday.

Bravo Network overnighted pickup letters via FedEx and emailed to the cast and their attorney of record, according to TamaraTattles.com.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her rep broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

Cast member Eva Marcille quit before she was fired. She reportedly earned a meager $7,500 per episode last season.

NeNe will sorely miss her six figure per episode salary.

The source says the 52-year-old New York native worries about her financial responsibilities -- she pays the bills for three households, including her $2.1 million, six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath mansion in Duluth, her eldest son's home, and a rental property on the West Coast.

NeNe fully supports her husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor, whom she reportedly cheated on with a younger man.

The friend says NeNe's finances have been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus crisis. With little money coming in from her clothing boutiques, NeNe reportedly took out loans to keep her finances afloat.

Her first round of applications for a federal grant and a PPP loan in March were rejected according to another source.

NeNe Leakes has been fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, blogger B. Scott reports exclusively.

Sources tell lovebscott.com that NeNe has not been offered a contract to return to season 13 of the longest running Real Housewives franchise that she co-created.

B. Scott said it's not surprising that she's been let go. NeNe's insubordination on and off the set and ongoing friction between her and other RHOA cast members led directly to her termination.

Another cast member, Eva Marcille, announced her resignation from the show rather than face the humiliation of being fired.

NeNe's list of violations include:

1. Starting off season 12 suspended following her physical altercation with one of the cameramen in season 11.

2. Popping off on a producer and walking off set while filming in Greece — in addition to not appearing in other episodes.

3. Walked off set multiple times during the season 12 virtual reunion.

4. Demanded the termination of former Executive Producer Andy Cohen.

5. Made not-so-subtle threats to sue the network.

Social media reacted to NeNe's termination:

Eva Marcille is leaving "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" after three seasons. Eva announced her decision to leave "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" on The Rickey Smiley Show on Tuesday.

"I appreciate the bond of friendship that I've made with my castmates and strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers of Bravo," she said during an appearance on The Ricky Smiley Morning Show.

"I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities. I look forward to serving the community on ‘Ricky Smiley Morning Show’ and finding other ways to be a voice during this transformational time during our country for people of color."

The 35-year-old mother-of-three married Michael Todd Sterling in September 2018. The couple share Michael Todd Sterling Jr., 2, and 1-year-old son, Maverick. She also shares a daughter, Marley Rae, with her ex Kevin McCall.

"I have a 6-year-old daughter and two young boys still in diapers. They are 24 hours a day and there is a lot of work to be done. I decided to spend my time and energy focusing on my kids and my community and not so much reality show business.

"I believe my time is up," she said, before adding she respects the RHOA cast members.

"I love every single one of those black women. They are all queens all in their own right. They are stars and I wish them the most successful season and transformational Season 13 that the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' has ever seen."

Andy Cohen broke his silence about Stassi Schroeder's termination from Vanderpump Rules. Cohen said he supported Bravo's decision to fire Schroeder and 3 other cast members, including Kristen Doute, for their racist actions in the past.

Schroeder, who is white, was fired on Tuesday for a 2018 incident involving cast member Faith Stowers, who is Black.

"There's so much happening in the Bravo universe," Cohen said on his Sirius XM podcast show. "So much talk about Vanderpump Rules and then, of course, the reunion ended up airing last night. I will say this about what happened. I absolutely support Bravo's decision, I think it was the right decision."

Cohen spoke up about Schroeder's dismissal after fans of the Bravo show pestered him via emails and social media.

He was quick to say he has no control over the show's programming or casting, having stepped down as executive producer in 2013.

"I want to remind people because I've been getting so many tweets and messages and whatever about Vanderpump Rules and about Southern Charm and other shows. I'm not in charge of programming at Bravo anymore," Cohen added. "I am not an Executive Producer of Vanderpump Rules. I don't have anything to do with the show except I love it and that I host the reunions."

But NeNe Leakes was not satisfied with his explanation. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum hinted that Cohen should be fired because he allowed the racist atmosphere to prevail on his sets.

She was also annoyed that Cohen chose castmate Kandi Burruss to confide in about Black Lives Matter, rather than NeNe, who everyone knows came up with the original concept for RHOA way back when.

The show is NeNe's legal property as co-creator. That’s why NeNe can never be fired - in case you're wondering.

Stassi Schroeder's little brother pleaded for forgiveness for his sister after she and other "Vanderpump Rules" cast members were fired for racist incidents in the past.

According to Page Six, in a now-deleted Instagram video, Nikolaoi Czermak, 15, pleaded:

"This goes out to Lisa Vanderpump, 'Vanderpump Rules,' Bravo TV, anyone that has been involved with Stassi getting fired. I want everyone to hear me out because my sister is one of the most loving people you will ever meet in your life. She deeply apologizes for what she said and I'm so desperate for her to succeed ... I just want her to go as far as she can."

Nikolai, who appeared in episodes with Stassi, continued:

"I'm asking for another chance for her, and she'll show everyone how good of a person she is and how much she cares about everyone. She likes entertaining people, that's why she does all this TV stuff ... My family is heartbroken from what’s been going on with her. Everything’s been taken away from her."

Brands terminated Stassi's sponsorships and Bravo TV fired her after former castmate Faith Stowers recalled a racist incident in 2018.

Faith, 31, appeared on Instagram Live chat with "Floribama Shore" star Candace Rice and discussed a 2018 incident where Stassi and co-star Kristen Doute tried to get cops to investigate her for a crime she did not commit.

Faith said Stassi read a Daily Mail article about a light-skinned woman who resembled Faith. "I guess this woman was robbing people," Faith said. "And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview."

Stassi bragged about her detective work on "the Bitch Bible" podcast in 2018, saying, "We are like, we just solved a f--cking crime. We start calling the police. The police don't give a f--k."

Bravo also fired Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni on Tuesday for their past racist tweets.

Nikolai addressed Faith in his video, begging:

"Faith, please, is there any way that she can fix anything or do anything that can benefit both of you guys — to get her career back and to make you live the best life ever? Is there anything that we can do for you? Please. I don't want to see my sister like this anymore … I love all you guys, but please, one more chance to forgive her."

Stassi apologized to Faith on Instagram, although Faith says she hasn't heard directly from her.

Faith told Page Six: "I feel so vindicated studios and production are able to see blatant racism and make these positive changes and help move the race forward — help with the fight forward."

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris is disappointed that one of his sons has refused to appear on his Vh1 reality TV show The Family Hustle.

T.I. spoke with Big Bank and DJ Scream on their podcast show "Big Facts." T.I. explained that his son Domani Harris has chosen to take a different path to stardom and won't appear on The Family Hustle this season.

T.I., who shares Domani and six other children with his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris, said Domani will not appear in the current season because he no longer wants to be associated with the show or with his dad.

T.I. said the 19-year-old left $85,000 on the table.

"That man gave up -- what was it for one season? I think it was $80,000 $85,000. They told him all you got to do is show up. Just for being in the background."

Even with production offering to limit his camera time, Domani declined to participate in the reality show.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

The aspiring rapper recently released the song "The Truth." In addition to following in his father's footsteps, he also took up acting and appeared in "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical."

T.I. said his son wants to embark on his own career path without any ties to the scripted reality show or his famous father.

The "King of the South" could not hide his disappointment.

"He real adamant about making his own path, you know what I'm saying? You know he has a keen intent to separate his legacy from my legacy."

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

T.I., pictured center with sons Messiah Harris (left) and Domani, said he understood the teenager's decision, but he would never walk away from that much cash for basically doing nothing. He said his son is not a paper chaser like him.

"I wouldn't have given up any money. I wouldn't have let no money slide by, but I get it."

Question: Would you walk away from $85,000 to choose your own career path?

Love Is Blind cast member Carlton Morton threatened suicide after social media users refused to support him when he came out as bisexual.

Love is Blind is produced by power couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey. The show followed 20 couples who meet for the first time on a blind date. The couples speak to each other through walls before meeting face to face.

If they click, their engagement is fast tracked and they proceed to get married or abandon their partner at the alter.

Contestants Carlton and Diamond Jack did not make it to the alter after he confessed that he was bisexual.

Diamond was upset that Carlton kept his secret lifestyle from her. According to theJasmineBrand.com, Carlton and Diamond forgave each other on the reunion special.

Carlton's confession didn’t bring him the attention and press coverage that he had hoped for. Oprah and Ellen Degeneres didn't call him to book interviews.

He went off the deep end when the Black LGBT and T media accused him of using the bisexual lifestyle for attention.

The overly emotional Carlton took to social media to complain that his "celebrity friends” abandoned him after he came out.

Feeling alone and depressed, he wrote a series of suicidal notes to manipulate his social media followers into expressing false sympathy for him.

In a goodbye message on his Instagram story, Morton wrote:

"Today is one of those days where I don't want to be here. I feel extremely alone and unsupported. I've cried for help since Feb. 13. No one cares."

In another post, he wrote: "Goodbye everyone."

As a result of his Diva antics, the hashtag #BisexualMenExist trended on Twitter.com.

Joseline Hernandez caused a minor uproar on Black Twitter after she bent down and kissed the feet of her man, Ballistic Beats, in the latest episode of Marriage Boot Camp.

Hernandez, who got her start on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, was accused of being "disrespectful" after she showed attention to other men in their home.

Ballistic, who was watching her the whole time, objected to her feeding fruit to one man, and ordered her into the house.

Black Twitter was shocked when Joseline SPRINTED inside the house. The couple went upstairs where she apologized profusely.

"I'm sorry. I should'a never fed the fruit to the guy. I'm sorry, my apologies," she said sincerely.

"Not coming from my queen," said Ballistic, who reminded Joseline that he is the king of his castle.

Fearing losing another man due to her attitude, Joseline dropped to the floor and kissed Ballistic's feet in front of company while sobbing uncontrollably.

The episode showed a side of Joseline many of her fans have never seen before. It seems that Joseline has discovered island women's secret to keeping their men happy.

American women, particularly Black women, don't fully understand the power of submission, and how to harness that power to their own advantage.

"This can't be the same Joseline Hernandez?!" wrote one Black Twitter user.

Question: Would you kiss your man's feet in front of company if you knew you did something wrong?

Sean Combs was forced to cancel his appearance at a party on Friday night after he tripped and fell, suffering an injury to his quadriceps, the large muscle group in his thigh.

The injury was the perfect opportunity for the Instagram showman to garner sympathy for himself.

Just 24 hours earlier, Combs, 50, was the laughing stock of the Internet after Nipsey Hussle's widow, Lauren London, curved him on Instagram.com.

Combs was humiliated on Thursday, when he tried to start a rumor by posting and deleting a B&W photo of himself admiring Lauren London.

London, 35, took to Instagram to set Combs straight and to assure her fans that she is still mourning the love of her life, Nipsey, who was gunned down by a rival gang banger on March 31, 2019.

"I'm all love and peace but never forget....I'm a woman in grief and I don't play about Nip, my family , my character and code," London said.

She added: "Stop f*cking with me and my name. Now let me get back to healing.”

Combs took to Instagram on Friday to share various clips from his hospital bed as he prepared to go under the knife to repair the leg injury, telling fans he's "probably one of the most accident prone people in the world".

"Yes, I'm accident prone... I'm clumsy, I trip, I fall, I fall in holes. It's always been like that," he said in one video, where he listed his surgeries over the years.

"I've had two rotator cuffs, a knee replacement, and now it's on quad. At the end of the day this is God's work to slow me down and take better care of body and ya know, eat right and just stop treating my body like a machine," he said.

In one video, Combs, wearing a blue surgical cap and gown, promoted his upcoming talent competition reality show. He explained he's holding auditions for talented R&B singers. The first stop is in Atlanta next week.

Tamar Braxton is back on the market after dating David Adefeso for 2 years. Friends say the single mother of one was not comfortable playing second fiddle to her African boyfriend's other women.

MTONews confirmed Braxton removed all of Adefeso's pictures from her social media accounts.

After removing the Nigerian's pictures, she wrote "If they don't want you, there is no talking... let it go and let God bring you the one who will be all that you need."

Braxton, 42, transformed herself from a Brazilian weave-wearing socialite to a member of team natural, having shorn her hair off to make a new start after divorcing industry executive Herbert Vincent, the father of her son.

Braxton wrote that her "flaws [are] not her weakness, but the strength and attraction to the one that is meant to be in [her] life."

Adefeso began appearing on the Braxton Family Values reality show on season 6. He planned to appear in the upcoming spin-off, titled Tamar.

Last year, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey's daughter, Noelle Robinson, made a shocking announcement on an episode of the Bravo reality show.

Noelle, 20, told her mother she goes both ways.

If you thought the confession was just a PR stunt for the show, you were wrong. According to AceShowBiz, Noelle brought her girlfriend, Alexis Powell, to dinner to meet Cynthia and her fiancé Mike Hill. The group was joined by Mike's daughters Kayla and Ashlee.

Cynthia expressed her support for Noelle, saying, "I just want you to be happy, Noelle. If you meet an amazing young lady - that's a blessing. If you meet an amazing young man - that's a blessing. As long as they're good people and they love and support you."

Alexis is a Howard graduate and a filmmaker/media personality by trade, according to her social media bio.

Alexis used to be a lipstick lesbian in college. She has since turned into a butch stud (male-identified lesbian).

Cynthia raised Noelle as a single mother until she met and married reality TV personality and scammer Peter Thomas. Noelle's father is hunky actor Leon.

The 2nd season of Dog the Bounty Hunter's spin-off series Dog's Most Wanted has been cancelled months after Duane "Dog" Chapman months proposed to his mistress during an appearance on Dr. Oz.

Season 1 aired on WGN America from September to November 2019, and documented Chapman and his wife Beth during her final days before her death from cancer last year.

The news comes months after Chapman proposed to Beth's best friend, Moon Angell, on Dr. Oz's show, but the couple reportedly aren't engaged.

Angell told Dr. Oz that Chapman "ordered" her to move her clothes into Beth's closet and to move Beth's things out. "It wasn't a negative thing," Angell said, adding that he would smell Beth on her clothes and sit in the closet and cry.

The engagement hurt Chapman's 32-year-old daughter, Lyssa Chapman, who complained that Angell dated her brother before she started dating Chapman.

"If you went to your mothers closet and saw she moved all her clothes and replaced them with her own, what would you do," Lyssa tweeted in January.

Chapman previously denied reports that he cheated on Beth while she battled cancer and while she lay on her death bed.

The scandal proved too sordid for WGN.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper the show wouldn't be returning for a second outing: "WGN called Dog last week to tell him the show was canceled.

"He would absolutely have loved to make a second season of the show so is obviously disappointed,"

The couple married in 2006 after nearly a decade together. She and Duane share three children, while the 66-year-old has a total of 12 kids from four marriages.
