NeNe Leakes has issued an apology after she addressed a heckler at her recent stand-up comedy show being raped.
“I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 49, wrote on Facebook on Monday, October 9. “Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so. As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used. I made a mistake and I should have known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I am sorry.”
The performance took place over the weekend at Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California, on Saturday, October 7. NeNe attempted a joke about a male Uber driver trying to have sex with his female passenger but the joke fell short and the audience booed. That’s when one woman took it too far and began heckling the reality diva.
“I ain’t even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver. I hope he rape yo’ ass tonight when he take you home, bitch,” Leakes fired back. “And steal yo’ funky hello kitty, bitch.”
As reported, NeNe and Kim Zolciak are embroiled in a heated feud after Zolciak’s daughter Brielle Biermann posted a Snapchat video of cockroaches on the floor in Leakes’ bathroom.
“We don’t have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky p–sy!” Leakes replied on Instagram on Thursday, October 5, before calling Biermann, 20, “racist trash.”
Kim denies NeNe’s racist allegation in a statement she posted on Instagram.
“It’s so sad and offensive that someone can stoop so low as to call someone a racist just because they are made. Everyone in my life knows that I am far from racist and unfortunately NeNe Leakes has tried for the last 10 years to paint that picture because that’s her last resort.”
However, Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, also accused the mom of six of being racist.
“Kim doesn’t like chocolate,” Jaxson said. “She actually uses the n-word all the time…”
