Losing a job is always difficult. Last month, NeNe Leakes tearfully admitted she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, the reality TV series she helped to create in 2008.

After calling bloggers liars for months, 55-year-old NeNe finally came clean during an episode of Tamron Hall. She confessed that she was forced off RHOA by the show's producers.

She stopped short of saying why (hint: her attitude needed adjustment).

Now NeNe claims she is "losing sleep" because of the "trauma" she's been through.

In a heavily filtered post on her Instagram stories, NeNe said, "I haven't slept well lately! Kinda in a daze. Sometimes when you've been thru [trauma] it's hard to sleep."

NeNe's followers expressed their support for her, saying she has a lot to live for despite being kicked off RHOA.

Others begged her to stay off social media due to its addictive and manipulative environment.

Tanya Sam walked away from Real Housewives of Atlanta in mid-season over a male stripper scandal.

Tanya, who is not an official 'Housewife’ - but collects a paycheck as a "Friend of the Show", walked off the set and refuses to film the rest of the season, production sources told TMZ.

According to TMZ sources, the drama started at a bachelorette party for castmate Cynthia Bailey (right) when Tanya (left) and Porsha Williams allegedly participated in a threesome with a male stripper -- after the cameras stopped rolling.

The tech startup entrepreneur is reportedly upset over the focus on the show's male stripper incident. She's also annoyed that her fiancé's cheating took center stage in season 12.

Tanya reportedly quit the rest of the season, so viewers will notice she is gone after a few episodes.

She is allegedly so upset that she's not even considering doing the reunion show when the season wraps.

Viewers are jealous of Jen's incredible lacefront wig, which looks natural like it's growing out of her scalp. Beyonce should holler at Jen's wigmaker. Beyonce has never worn a lacefront wig that looked authentic or genuine in her life.

Mary is annoyed because her only son, 17-year-old Robert Cosby Jr., is in a serious relationship with a girl at his high school - and Mary is desperate to break them up by sending him away to a boarding school in Los Angeles.

"I feel like it isn't necessary," says Robert, who adds that he will be lonely without his girlfriend there. Meanwhile, Robert looks to his father, Robert Cosby Sr., for a little help and support. But Robert Sr. doesn't say a word in his son's defense.

Brooks, Meredith's overbearing, effeminate, 21-year-old son forbids his mom from having a sleepover with Jen after Jen inadvertently exposed her lady parts to him and his sister Chloe.

"That's definitely not happening," he tells Meredith in an authoritarian way. "You're a CEO," he tells her, "You're never gonna have time for a sleepover in your life."

He was placed in a room with a flamboyant inmate, Ms. Foxy, who flirted with him. "I was waiting on you at the door," Ms. Foxy said. The scene launched a popular internet meme.

Moniece Slaughter says production companies treat Black reality show cast members like "slaves to the machine."

In an interview with The Jasmine Brand, Moniece, 33, said Black reality TV personalities routinely receive lower pay than their white counterparts.

She said Black reality stars are "not being managed by Kris Jenners" who tell them "We know your worth, we're gonna fight for your worth, and we're not gonna let you do anything that is below what you're worth."

Moniece also alleged that producers use a loophole to get out of paying cast members for working over filming schedules. Moniece accused some producers of being "two-faced" backstabbers who tell networks not to work with cast members who are insubordinate or difficult to work with (such as NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks).

In 2019 Moniece announced her departure from Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, saying her main focus was to be a good mom to her son Kamron (by former fiancé, Fizz).

On the outside, the newest Real Housewives of NY cast member Eboni K. Williams seems to have it all: brains, beauty, financial security, and a successful career.

But she's not married and her love life is a complete mystery to her loyal fans.

RHONY made history by hiring Eboni, 37, as the first Black cast member in the show's 13-year run.

The internet wonders why Bravo picked a Black woman who has never been married and has a history of failed relationships.

Internet sleuths uncovered information that Eboni dated her childhood friend Gray Sandy, but they split up.

A Fox News fan page on Twitter suggested that Eboni is high maintenance and she can be intimidating to men. The fan page noted that Eboni was "furious" that her ex-boyfriend didn't give her an orchid. That seems like a petty thing to some people.

The fan page even mocked Eboni, saying the "K" in Eboni K. Williams stood for "Kardashian."

But Eboni had a ready explanation for her controlling behavior.

She replied to the tweet with a joke, saying her ex-boyfriend promised to give her the flower only to renege because the plant was too expensive.

"Only because he promised me that he would lol.. then said they were too expensive lol," she tweeted.

Eboni also mentioned on August 11, 2017 that she was in a "wonderful relationship."

"I'm actually 34 years old (in sept) and I'm in a wonderful relationship."

Eboni, who was raised by a loving single mom, compared being fatherless to an open wound.

She tweeted: "@DrStevePerry Wow! You made me realize I've never purchased a Father's Day card either...amazing how unaware we are of our wounds #lifeclass"

She continued: "@G_u_r_A_MAYzing @DrStevePerry Truth!! My mother is INCREDIBLE but as fantastic as she is, she could never replace the role of father."

Cynthia Bailey's bachelorette party was off the chain. They say that, allegedly, two of her fellow cast members enjoyed a little girl-on-girl action. We don't believe it - especially if the RHOA cameras were on.

According to Page Six, things took a wild left turn with some girl-on-girl action and a scandalous hookup between two "Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars and a male stripper.

Cynthia is set to tie the knot with fiancé Mike Hill at a lavish wedding in front of 250 guests in Georgia on Oct. 10.

via Page Six --

A source who witnessed the bash exclusively told us that some of the women began hooking up with each other in the living room of the house they were staying in in Charleston, South Carolina. There were about nine or 10 guests total invited to the party.

"There were multiple people that had girl-on-girl," a source said, adding that the hookups went beyond making out to oral sex in some instances. "They were so drunk."

We're told the cameras captured the alleged hookups in the living room since the cast is currently filming Season 13 of "RHOA."

The "Real Housewives of New York City" is making history by hiring their first Black cast member in the show's 13-year run.

TMZ has learned the Bravo series hired Eboni K. Williams to join the Big Apple ladies for season 13, which is already in production.

The attorney and TV host is ecstatic about her new gig, telling TMZ, "NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I'm excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can't wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn't been seen before."

Eboni added, "Anyone who's aware of my work knows I don't hold back. I'm going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else."

It's true. Eboni has a reputation for being loud and argumentative (which may explain why she's single).

The 37-year-old Charlotte native co-hosted "FOX News Specialists" before leaving FNC at the end of 2018. For a short time, Eboni co-hosted a talk show on WABC Radio in NYC and currently co-hosts "State of the Culture" on Sean Combs's Revolt TV.

Eboni earned her law degree from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law -- and she clerked for Louisiana's Secretary of State and the state's Attorney General.

As TMZ reported, the show's producers Also auditioned Bershan Shaw, another potential Black housewife. In the end, they decided Eboni was the better fit as a full-time cast member. It's still possible Bershan will make appearances.

After months of denials, NeNe Leakes finally confirmed that she was let go from the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

But Wendy Williams doesn't believe NeNe will go quietly. The talk show Diva is convinced NeNe will beg for her job back after the going gets rough.

Wendy, 56, resumed her talk show on Monday, and discussed NeNe's departure from RHOA.

"It's a money thing," said Wendy, who has an on-again-off-again friendship with NeNe, 52. Wendy is convinced NeNe is simply holding out for more money.

"She said she can't do it. She knows what she's worth and she can't be there. There's not enough filming time for her to make sense and there's not enough money in it for her to make sense."

Wendy said NeNe is too desperate for attention to stay away for long.

"NeNe will always be the queen bee and I don't believe she won't be back. I think she likes a lot of attention and I think Bravo likes to boil the pot and bring them back."

Wendy said she texted former RHOA executive producer Andy Cohen, and "he texted back and said [there will be] 'a lot of surprises this season.'"

"In conclusion, I don't believe anything about the NeNe thing," Wendy said.

NeNe Leakes is in good spirits a day after confirming she is departing Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.

NeNe posted a boudoir photo that showed her wearing a lacy negligee on Friday. The former stripper captioned the heavily Photoshopped photo, "Sometimes you have to hit the reset button."

NeNe's unmade bed was blurred out in the background of the photo.
 

NeNe confirmed her exit from RHOA in a video on her YouTube channel on Thursday. "I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation," she said.

NeNe tried to save face by claiming she made the decision to leave.

"There's been a lot of emotion flying from both sides. It has been hard, and I have made the very hard and very difficult decision to not be a part of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' Season 13. It wasn't an easy decision for me. It was hard."

Word has it that the producers thought NeNe, at age 52, wasn't connecting with Gen-Z. Her constant rants and jabs at everyone from her castmates to producers grew tiresome.

"I'm just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for black ensemble reality shows," she said.

She thanked Bravo's producers for "all the memories, the laughs, the tears."

Bravo isn't done cleaning house. Other aging cast members who will be phased out next year reportedly include Cynthia Bailey, 53, Kenya Moore, 49, and Kandi Burruss, 44.
