During part three of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss revealed that a crew member was injured during the Bye, Wig party brawl this season, and they accused NeNe Leakes of knocking out a producer’s tooth. Could Leakes lose her peach because of her behavior?
After Leakes admitted that she tore the T-shirt of a cameraman who was filming in her closet, Williams revealed, “the other guy got choked up, scratched up, went to the hospital.”

Leakes then asked if he did go to the hospital, adding that she didn’t hear anything about it. But, Williams wasn’t buying Leakes’ claim of ignorance.
“He absolutely did, and absolutely had scratches on his back. Choked up and head drug against the wall,” Williams said.
Burrus backed up Williams, saying, “His tooth got knocked out.”
But, according to Radar Online, this isn’t what really went down. An insider says that Leakes didn’t knock out a producer’s tooth during the fight that started when Burruss and Williams stormed into Leakes’ closet.

The source says that the producer chipped his tooth because he was rushing into the room to get to Leakes when the fight started and ended up falling after tripping over equipment. The producer immediately went to the hospital because that is the standard policy when someone is injured during filming.
Even though she got into a brawl with her co-stars, the source says that Leakes isn’t in danger of losing her job on RHOA because it wasn’t her fault.
“Security was there, and when she went off, he rushed in, it was total chaos, but she’s not getting in trouble for it,” said the snitch.
Eva Marcille claimed during the reunion that security grabbed Leakes when she pulled the camera guy by his shirt, but Williams had a different version of the story. She said that security grabbed Leakes after she choked a producer.
The insider explains that things got so heated at the reunion because Gregg Leakes’ cancer battle was weighing heavily on NeNe when they filmed the special. And, with Cynthia Bailey blindsiding her with Kenya Moore at the end of the season, NeNe was having a really tough time. However, Bravo executives like the Glee alum and they continue to support her.

During NeNe’s recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen attempted to mend NeNe and Bailey’s broken friendship, but NeNe wasn’t having it. She said that she doesn’t believe Bailey’s explanation, and it looks like betrayal, so he should stop acting like it’s not.
While the ladies of RHOA are on hiatus, NeNe Leakes is set to star in the new scripted comedy Ride Or Die.
