NeNe Leakes filed a federal lawsuit against Andy Cohen and Bravo TV alleging they encouraged and tolerated a hostile and racist work environment.

NeNe, 54, filed the lawsuit in Atlanta's federal court on Wednesday, according to ET Online.

Co-defendants include NBCUniversal, Bravo, True Entertainment and Truly Original, and "Real Housewives" executive producer Andy Cohen.

The lawsuit claims the co-defendants ignored NeNe's repeated complaints about Kim Zolciak-Biermann's racist behavior on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

"From the day the series began filming, NeNe was the target of systemic racism from co-star Kim Zolciak-Biermann, which was tolerated by Bravo executive producer Andy Cohen and other executives," said NeNe's Beverly Hills attorney David DeRubertis in a statement to ET.

DeRubertis added: "For years NBC, Bravo and TruTV have permitted – even encouraged – a corporate and workplace culture that tolerates cast members and talents' racially-offensive and insensitive conduct, statements and actions without any meaningful consequence or remediation. NeNe hopes that coming forward with this lawsuit [will force] these networks ... to ensure a workplace free from racially discriminatory or harassing behavior."

NeNe is seeking millions of dollars for her pain and suffering.

Kim Zolciak says NFL players are swarming into daughter Brielle Biermann's DMs on social media. Speaking on the "HollywoodLife Podcast," Kim said her daughter's inbox is always full. Most of the messages are from horny NFL players.

Kim seems proud of the fact that NFL players might think of her 23-year-old daughter as an easy woman who gives up the goodies without hesitation.

"A lot of athletes DM Brielle," said Zolciak, 42. She noted her husband, former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, is all too aware of what the athletes want.

"Kroy's a rare athlete, you know, he definitely verbalizes what men want," she continued. "We all know, obviously, kind of what they want, but there's those few far in-between guys that definitely want a relationship and a connection."

She added: "Kroy's worked with them, and he has a lot of great friends that are athletes as well, I mean, I think everybody's different. We find it funny like, oh, this NFL player is DM-ing Brielle, and Kroy's like, 'Oh, God.'"

Brielle previously dated With Sox pitcher Michal Kopech, 24. They broke up in March 2018.

A neighbor of a Real Housewives of Atlanta star was arrested after a SWAT standoff that lasted for several hours on Wednesday.

George R. Moore was arrested after firing a gunshot inside his mansion in the affluent Manor Golf and County Club in Milton, GA.

Channel 2's Mike Petchenik, was at the scene when police and SWAT officers set up a perimeter around the house in the gated subdivision of million dollar homes near Hopewell and Hamby roads.

Petchenik learned that Moore is the next-door neighbor of Kim Zolciak and her husband, ex-NFL player Kroy Biermann.

Footage shot by NewsChopper 2 shows a man come outside and surrender to police, who handcuffed him and led him to a police cruiser.

The drama unfolded on Wednesday afternoon after family members called police to report that someone at the home was in distress and asked for a welfare check.

When officers arrived at the home, Moore refused to open the door and hung up on them when they called his phone.

Police later determined Moore had fired a handgun inside the home. No one else was in the home at the time.

Moore was charged with reckless conduct and booked into the Fulton County jail.

"This is the kind of resolution that we hope for when we get into these situations," Captain Charles Barstow told Petchenik.

Zolciak's chef, Tracey Bloom, was cooking dinner at the time of the incident.

"When I was in the house, everyone was running around," Bloom told Petchenik. "I was just cooking and I was like, 'What's going on?' My boss, Kim, was like, 'Get all the wine and bring it down to the safe room.'"

Bloom said she's seen the man before in the neighborhood.

"From what I hear, he was cool, but then if you got on his bad side, he'd go crazy and get weird and stuff like that," Bloom said. "I hope this guy gets the help he needs."
