NeNe Leakes Close to Settlement with Bravo and Andy Cohen

Earlier this year former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mate NeNe Leakes sued Bravo and RHOA producer Andy Cohen for racial discrimination [click here if you missed that]. 

The two sides are currently negotiating a settlement...

NeNe Leakes is in talks with Andy Cohen, Bravo and NBCUniversal to potentially settle the discrimination lawsuit she filed against them outside of court, Page Six has learned.
An Atlanta judge granted the parties a 45-day extension on Monday until Aug. 19 after the defendants requested more time to “negotiate” the dispute, according to court documents.
In a motion filed on June 24, Cohen, 54, Bravo and NBCU argued that per contract agreements existing between them and Leakes, 54, the ongoing disputes are “already subject to arbitration in New York.”
The motion also noted, however, that Leakes “disagrees” with the notion of arbitration, but that both parties are “in the process of negotiating this issue in an attempt to avoid the time and expense of a motion to compel arbitration” through their respective counsel.
Since both sides “agreed” that a 45-day extension is “appropriate to complete these discussions,” the judge granted the deadline extension.
