Andy Cohen Responds to NeNe Leakes’ Discrimination Lawsuit

Lawyers for Andy Cohen and Bravo parent company NBCUniversal and others sued by former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes are trying to have her federal lawsuit moved out of the public eye.

A June 24 court filing reveals attorneys for those being sued by Leakes say the contracts she signed to appear on the Bravo reality show subject her to arbitration in New York. The two sides are working to settle the dispute, the court filing obtained by Heavy reveals.

Leakes filed the lawsuit, which can be read here, in federal court in Atlanta in April 2022. Attorneys for Cohen and NBCU say the parties are working toward a settlement on issues including where the dispute will be heard. They have asked for an additional 45 days to continue those talks before they issue a formal response to Leakes’ accusations in the Northern District of Georgia. Magistrate Judge Justin S. Anand granted the defendants’ motion on June 27, agreeing to allow the private discussions to continue until August 19.
