Now the only thing Nene has trended for in the past year is initiating or dismissing court cases.

Nene, however, did not have a clean and cordial goodbye with Bravo.

Right after leaving the franchise, Nene initiated a war by suing the entire production company. She decided to file a lawsuit against True Entertainment, Bravo, NBCUniversal, Truly Televisions, and even Bravo’s head hunk Andy Cohen.

The lawsuit claimed, “NBC, Bravo, and True foster a corporate and workplace culture in which racially insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not, encouraged.”

Fans praised Nene for standing up for a cause that mattered to her even if it meant biting the hand that once fed you. Surprisingly, this didn’t last very long because Nene backed out before the war even got serious.

She opened up about her dismissing the court case in an interview with Carlos King. She said: “I don’t have any hard feelings. I’m a Sagittarius. So at some point, I may be mad with you, but then I get over it. I’m not the kind of girl that carries a grudge or hold the grudge forever. I’m also not [an] ass kisser.”
