A month later, Leakes claimed she sued the respective parties two years after she left “RHOA” because it “felt like it was the right time… a few years ago.”

Leakes said she realized she was blacklisted when she “suddenly” found herself “not working” after years of being “wanted”.

Leakes was on the show from seasons 1 through 7 and then seasons 10 through 12 before dropping out.
