“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes may have participated in the Los Angeles gay pride parade last year, but it sounds like some of her co-stars are not too convinced that she is all about gay pride. In fact, Kenya Moore went on “Watch What Happens Live” and revealed that NeNe didn’t really support the gay community with her comments on Sunday’s episode. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Feb. 10, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes is now being accused of gay bashing after the infamous fight.

"I was really disgusted by that,” Kenya emphasized to Andy Cohen. “It was disgusting to watch someone that's built her entire career off of copying gay men's lingo... for her to make defamatory and humiliating remarks. I think it was uncalled for and it's no place to gay bash.” Of course, NeNe didn’t actually gay-bash Brandon DeShazer, but she did call Brandon Kenya’s girlfriend in the red robe.“We’re a show that loves gay people, obviously… And what does it matter what someone's sexuality is [as to] whether they got beat up or not? What does that have to do with anything? It's completely uncalled for. I was quite disturbed by those remarks,” Kenya added.

While watching the episode, Brandon DeShazer had a few things to say. And he was not thrilled with NeNe's comments. “Trying to oppress me with Stigmas that you demonstrate at every given moment??? Come harder...#FACT,” he revealed. “Despite your words, I was born a man, raised a man and chosen as a man. IM ALL MAN! #FACT. Calling me "queen" "girlfriend" says MUCH less about me and MUCH more about you! #FACT.”
