Weeks into production on the new episodes, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star shared a very telling post on her Instagram page in regard to a number of former Real Housewives as Nene deleted her account entirely and posted a message demanding support and protection for Black women on Twitter.
“[Dorinda Medley] you will be missed icon but it’s pretty amazing on the other side,” Tamra wrote in the caption of a photo of herself and Dorinda, who announced her departure from The Real Housewives of New York City on August 25.
Then, while sharing hashtags for Vicki Gunvalson, LeeAnne Locken, Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Vanderpump, Dorinda, Nene, and herself, Tamra told her fans and followers that she and her fellow Bravolebrities are “gone but never forgotten.”
Around the time of Tamra’s post, Nene deactivated her Instagram account.
“Nene’s Instagram is gone. When did this happen…?” the Queens of Bravo wondered on Twitter after noting the change in Nene’s account.
While Nene’s Twitter account is still active, she did share a cryptic post with her fans and followers on Tuesday night.
“Support Black Women, Protect Black Women! You have no idea what they’ve been thru or the WEIGHT they have carried on their backs silently for yearsssssssssss. Thank you! Bye,” she wrote.
Following her post, a number of Nene’s followers questioned her about what the tweet was in reference to while others simply wanted to know whether she was returning to RHOA for season 13
“Are you fired or not?” one person asked. “Like let us know so we can cancel bravo. It’s September. We ready to do what needs to be done but say something already.”

Rumors first began swirling earlier this summer in regard to Nene’s potential exit from RHOA after it was confirmed that she was not yet filming and that two additional cast members, including actress Drew Sidora and YouTube star LaToya Ali, had been added to the series. Since then, Nene has alluded to the fact that she dealt with discrimination behind the scenes of the show on a number of occasions.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13 is expected to return to Bravo later this year or early next year.
