NeNe Leakes Hoping Kathy Griffin Will Help Bolster Bravo Lawsuit

Last month it was reported that former Real Housewives of Atlanta fan favorite NeNe Leakes and Bravo were in negotiations to settle NeNe's racial discrimination lawsuit against the network [click here if you missed that]. 

Now insiders are claiming NeNe is still putting up a fight and hoping comedian Kathy Griffin will help prove her case...

While a judge has given both sides until August 19 to “negotiate” the dispute, Leakes is busy trying to recruit a heavy hitter to help her win the lawsuit: Kathy Griffin.
“Kathy was one of the first-ever stars on Bravo,” a source connected to the lawsuit told
“Long before The Real Housewives, Kathy had her own hit show on Bravo. My Life on the D-list put Andy Cohen on the map at a time when the network was basically still a start-up.
“Kathy knows everything about Bravo and Andy. She was there from day one and saw how the machine operates. NeNe knows that.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta producers recently met with several high-powered Beverly Hills attorneys and plans to meet with Griffin next, we’ve also learned.
They added, “She knows there are others who claim they haven't been treated right by Andy. She just has to get them to be brave enough to speak out knowing they will never work on television again."
Another source added that most celebrities associated with the network are refusing to help Leakes. But if Griffin agrees to be a witness, they said, the “floodgates will open up.”
