NeNe Leakes took to Instagram to reveal her disappointment after allegedly being snubbed by Porsha Williams on the set of Netflix’s “The Upshaws.” Leakes, excited about the opportunity to work on the comedy series, shared that her management company had informed her of the interest from “The Upshaws” production team. However, upon arriving at the studio for rehearsals, Leakes discovered that Williams hadn’t shown up and had reportedly expressed a desire not to work with her due to past issues.
“I went back to my hotel, and when I got to my hotel, production called me and asked me if I had any issues with any ‘Housewives’ because they were going to be recasting the other position” NeNe said.

Leakes expressed shock and disappointment at the turn of events, especially since she and Williams had previously shared good times together, including double-dates and trips to various destinations. Leakes emphasized that she had no issues working with Williams and was confused by the alleged reasons for Williams’ decision.
In response to Leakes’ claims, Williams reportedly cited her ongoing divorce as a reason for not being in touch. Leakes, however, stated that she didn’t want to intrude on Williams’ privacy but was surprised by the situation, especially considering her past support for Williams during her divorce from Kordell Stewart.
Leakes concluded by asserting that professionals can share the spotlight, implying that Williams’ decision may have been driven by a desire to hog the limelight. This incident marks a rift between the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars, who have not shared the screen since Leakes left the show in 2020.
