NeNe Leakes is unloading her luxury Buckhead condo six months after she dropped $1.85 million on the purchase in November 2021.

Sources say NeNe is selling the condo to keep her boyfriend's wife from seizing it as part of her alienation of affection lawsuit.

The former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" recently listed her condo for $2.5 million.

The reality TV personality purchased the condo for $1.85 million in November 2021.

The ritzy residence is part of the 5-star Waldorf Astoria Residences, just steps away from the fabulous Shops at Buckhead Atlanta, Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza.

The gated townhouse, one of just three on the property, is set apart from the hotel. It is accessed through a courtyard and gated entrance.

NeNe purchased the condo following the death of her husband Gregg Leakes in September.

Most potential home buyers in the Atlanta area routinely check crime map data to be better informed and to protect their families before placing bids on homes.

However, both Realtor.com and Redfin.com have removed their crime map data on their sites in an effort to reduce "blatant racism."

The websites typically sourced their crime data from the Atlanta Police Department or Spotcrime.com.

High crime areas in Atlanta are usually in majority minority neighborhoods. But some areas on crime maps that are historically hot -- indicating violent crime incidents -- are also gentrifying rapidly.

Neighborhoods in Cascade, West End and Mechanicsville areas of Atlanta that were once crime-ridden are gentrifying and majority white. But those areas are still glowing hot on some crime maps.

In a statement, David Doctorow, CEO of Realtor.com, said the crime map has been removed in order "to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer's home search experience."

Redfin's chief growth officer, Christian Taubman, also announced the crime map data was removed.

The news was met with skepticism from potential homebuyers and multiple listing services who rely on crime map data to inform their clients.

"If you are looking for a new home, a place to raise your children, to prosper, to grow old, and through it all to be safe, how is ignoring the truth of the existence of crime in any given neighborhood something that will help end that crime?" wrote Gopusa.com.

NeNe Leakes slashed the price of her marital home again after she previously cut the price $200,000 in late October.

NeNe listed the 10,000 sq. ft. Duluth, Georgia mansion for $4 million in September, after her husband, Gregg, died of colon cancer at age 66.

According to Zillow.com, the former RHOA star slashed the price of her 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom manse another $305,000 to $3,495,000.

NeNe and Gregg originally purchased their marital home while it was under construction in 2015 for just north of $2 million.

The Mediterranean-style mansion sits on a lush golf course with gorgeous views overlooking a sparkling swimming pool with fountains.

Local real state agents say NeNe isn't the only one who doesn't want to stay in her home after her husband recently died there.

There is an obscure law requiring real estate agents to disclose a death on a property to potential buyers.

According to Redfin.com, a death in a home is considered a "material fact" just like a leaky roof or a cracked foundation.

Material facts must be disclosed to a buyer before the deal is closed.

Most buyers don't want to sleep in a home where someone recently died because his spirit may be restless.

Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, is stepping down amid allegations she misused donations.

BLMGNF announced Tuesday, May 27, that Cullors is stepping down from her role as the movement's executive director.

"With smart, experienced and committed people supporting the organization during this transition, I know that BLMGNF is in good hands," Cullors said in a statement. "The foundation's agenda remains the same — eradicate white supremacy and build life-affirming institutions."

Last month, Hawk Newsome, another BLM founder, called for an "independent" financial investigation into Cullors' spending after she made substantial real estate transactions with no apparent source of income.

Cullors owns a total of $3.2 million in real estate holdings.

Cullors bought a three-bedroom home in Topanga Canyon for $1.4 million. The home is located in an area with a Black population of just 1.8 percent.

The property is located about 20 miles from her childhood home in an "impoverished" area in Van Nuys, California.

Cullors purchased two other homes in Los Angeles, according to public records.

In 2017, she bought a house in Inglewood for $510,000. The property is now worth $800,000.

Cullors and her lesbian spouse Janaya Khan also purchased a home in Atlanta, Georgia for $415,000.

Cullors previously complained that the criticism surrounding her real estate portfolio was an example of "white supremacy".

A Florida couple invited guests to their lavish wedding at a 16,300 square foot mansion complete with a tennis court, bowling alley and pool with a waterfall.

In their glossy wedding invitation, Courtney Wilson and Shenita Jones - who referred to themselves as "the Royal couple" - claimed they owned the sprawling $5.6 million mansion with 15 bathrooms.

They called the Southwest Ranches mansion their "dream home" and they said God sent them a message to hold their dream wedding there.

However, the homeowner didn't receive the same message from God.

Nathan Finkel's late father, who owned the mansion, was an early IHOP restaurant franchisee. Finkel recently listed it the home for over $5 million.

Finkel was baffled when Wilson showed up outside the gate on Saturday morning to set up for the wedding.

The homeowner told Wilson he never gave them permission to hold their nuptials there.

"I have people trespassing on my property," Finkel told a 911 dispatcher, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.

"And they keep harassing me, calling me. They say they're having a wedding here and it's God's message. I don't know what's going on. All I want is (for) it to stop. And they're sitting at my property right at the front gate right now."

Police arrived promptly and told Wilson and his friends to hit the road. No arrests were made.

Wilson previously toured the home as a potential buyer. He fell in love with the property and fancied himself and his new bride living there.

Then he received the Divine message from God telling him the home was his free and clear.

Squatters around the country claim to receive that same Divine message.

"The guy figured it was a vacant house and didn't realize Nathan lived on the property in a different home," Poliakoff said. "This guy had no idea he lived there. You know the shock that must have been on his face when he showed up at the gate and the owner was home?"

A California couple says they were lowballed on a home appraisal because of their race. Paul and Tenisha Austin say the value of their renovated home skyrocketed 50% after a white friend met with the appraiser.

The Austins purchased their Bay Area home from another Black couple in 2016. After completing $400,000 in renovations, including adding 1,000 square feet to the home, they decided to put the house on the market in 2020.

The appraiser, an older white woman, told the Austins the house was worth $989,000 -- just $100,000 more than the original purchase price. The Austins are convinced race was a factor.

"I read the appraisal, I looked at the number I was like, 'This is unbelievable'," Tenisha Austin told the Atlanta Black Star.

"It was a slap in the face," said Paul Austin.

After discussing the situation with a white friend, the woman agreed to pretend the Marin City home was her own.

"She said 'No problem. I'll be Tenisha. I'll bring over some pictures of my family. She made our home look like it belonged to her,'" Paul told Atlanta Black Star.

The ploy worked. The home appraised for $1,482,000 -- or close to $500,000 more than the original appraisal weeks earlier.

The Austins' story only added to the frustrations of Black first-time homebuyers who are often rejected for home mortgages based on their race.

According to the Census Bureau, 44 percent of Black families owned a home in the first quarter of 2020, compared to nearly 74 percent of white families.

"Half of all blacks born between 1956 and 1965 were homeowners by the age of 50, but blacks born from 1966 to 1976 have a homeownership rate of just 40 percent," said Donnell Williams, president of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers.

"If trends continue, black millennials may not even reach a homeownership rate of 40 percent by the time they turn 50," he added.

Miami's ultra wealthy parents are reportedly "losing their minds" over where the privileged children of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner will attend private school if they leave Washington, DC.

Page Six reports the Kushners purchased land on Miami's exclusive Indian Creek enclave where they plan to build a mega mansion if they're forced to leave Washington, DC.

Miami's mega-rich parents exchanged a flurry of text messages after the news broke of the huge land purchase. "I must have gotten 10 texts [about this] yesterday," one parent told Page Six.

"The closest good Jewish school to where they bought their land is Lehrman, which is about 5 minutes away. Otherwise, Ransom Everglades, which would be far for them, Miami Country Day — which is about 15 minutes — and Cushman are all very good private schools. Pinecrest is a very good school, but super far. If they are going Jewish and plan to in the meantime rent or live in that area near where they are building the house, I bet Lehrman."

The well-to-do parent said they don't expect to meet their neighbors any time soon since construction crews have yet to break ground.

"The thing is, they bought a plot of land and building a mansion on Indian Creek is no small job — the houses are enormous," the parent said. "How long does it take to build a house from scratch? So who knows when they'd actually be in that house."

The Kushners have three children: daughter Arabella Rose, 9, and sons Joseph, 7, and Theodore, 4.
