Did producers of Bethenny Frankel’s show play hardball with NeNe Leakes demanding that she appear on Bethenny’s show or she won’t get invited to Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show?
Ellen is the executive producer of Bethenny and RadarOnline claims the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was told, “If NeNe wanted to go on Ellen [in the future,] she had to agree to appear on Bethenny’s talk show. NeNe wasn’t happy that she was being forced to go on Bethenny’s talk show.”
But RumorFix talked to NeNe’s rep who tells us, “None of it pertaining to NeNe is true. NeNe was very happy to reconnect with Bethenny doing her show. They hadn’t seen each other for a while and NeNe was happy to be a guest on Bethenny to help launch her talk show series and promote her own series at the same. The strong arming nonsense is just that – nonsense — in fact, Bethenny was one of the very first talk shows we booked to when we planned NeNe’s PR tour.”
Anyway — do we really think anyone can force NeNe to do anything?
NeNe appeared on both shows in the same week of September promoting her spin off show, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
