Nene Leakes Loses The Great Xscape Tour Gig!!!
Another day and another development in the recent Nene Leakes drama! Yesterday, I told you how Nene was removed from online advertisements for her RHOA co-star’s Kandi Burruss’ “…Great Xscape Tour.” Many people including my nosey ass, came to the assumption that Nene was losing her gig as the host of the tour, because of her recent controversy! Nene was recorded on camera telling a heckler that she hoped the woman got raped by her Uber driver on the way home!
Well it is now official, Xscape has released a statement. Nene Leakes has officially been let go as the host of the show.
Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend Nene Leakes. As a result, we have decided to no longer proceed with her participation on our tour. It was an unfortunate incident for which Nene has since apologized and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period. As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best. Our hearts go out to all female victims and we stand with you! This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends. As always, we are grateful for the love and support and we look forward to seeing all of you at “The Great Xscape” tour.”
Although I am a huge fan of Leakes, I do believe that Kandi and Co. made the right decision. Nene would have been a natural fit for the role as host of the tour, but rape is a serious matter and it is not to be talked about in a playful manner.
I have faith that Nene will recover from all of this. There’s rain before the rainbow…
