Nene Leakes is threatening to quit the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and walk away from her nearly $5,0000,000 in salary.

According to multiple sources, Nene Leakes has been "suspended" from the first part of the new season of Bravo's reality hit show Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Blogger B Scott first broke the news of Nene's suspension yesterday. He reported:

As revealed during the reunion, NeNe’s altercation with producers was way more intense than we saw. We saw NeNe rip a cameraman’s shirt, but Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss shared that one of the crew members ended up in the hospital with a missing tooth after NeNe put her hands on him.

For that reason, in addition to NeNe’s ‘bad attitude’ in dealing with producers and execs behind the scenes, sources tell that NeNe has been forced to “sit out” for at least the first part of the season — maybe longer — as the ladies begin filming.

But Nene is furious that she's being "suspended" this season, a source close to Nene explained. 

As MTO News reported months ago, Nene already was "suspended" for her actions. Nene was already suspended for one episode from the Atlanta Housewives last season - and had to forfeit her $200K an episode salary to the cameraman/victim.

You see, Nene is paid on a per episode basis - so she loses $200,000 for each episode which she does not appear. Her new suspension could cost the star of the Bravo franchise millions.

And it appears that Nene is now threatening to quit the show over this "suspension."

She posted a cryptic message last week on social media, which suggests that she may be leaving the top Bravo show, unless they remove her suspension.

Here's what she posted. The image is captioned "Say what now? Nawwww Happiness over everything #byeforever#putsomerespekonmyname."
