'Atlanta Housewife'

Walks Out on FOX Show

3/12/2010 4:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Atlanta Housewife' Walks Out on FOX ShowNeNe Leakes is pimping her book all over NYC today -- but she put her hatred of FOX ahead of book sales this morning when she refused to go on a local TV show.

The "Real Housewife of Atlanta" star was supposed to be a guest on FOX 5's "Good Day New York" to talk about her new book, "Never Make the Same Mistake Twice." Sources on the set tell TMZ that she realized it was a FOX show just a few minutes before her appearance.

She bailed, according to witnesses, telling people she hates the network. We're told it might have something to do with a FOX Atlanta report that didn't paint NeNe and her husband in a very positive light.

A rep for Leakes had no immediate comment.

Goes to show you that yo do not needa high IQ to give head. If this dummy couldn't tell the differance between the FOX network and a local affliliate, then her book should fail. And if she were to show up on FOX cable news then some people would actually buy her book.

"She is entitled to her opinion just like you right wing, rabid hate-filled pus bags."

Who is right wing? Just because you think she;s a joke doesn't mean you are right wing.

Your going to sprain your ankle knee-jerking that fast.

That was a mistake on her part. She could have sold some more of her books. She needs the
money to bail out that druggie son of hers who just got arrested !

Probably because she knew the "Fair and Balanced" Fox Network would be anything but "Fair and Balanced" during the interview!

DUH!

FOX NEWS IS NOT the Fox 5 affiliate. Just like any other Fox local channel. Wanda sykes is on FOX local affiliates bashing FOX NEWS. TMZ is kinda stupid for this story. It has nothing to do with FOX NEWS and makes this lady look real un-educated on current life....all you posters who don't get it also. Makes the point that most people have halfway opinions...they don't know the FACTS. Maybe if you looked at FOX NEWS, not the FOX affiliates who often times have absolutely nothing in common with FOX NEWS CHANNEL and/or viewpoints, you might learn something. Not to agree, but to SEE both sides of issues. So your opinions don't come off un-informed. I watch all News and compare the reports, and FOX NEWS hands down shares the news most effectively and presents it with the most information for me to consider.
Ding Dong to all the people who cannot tell the difference between an affiliate and FOX NEWS...not connected people...BILL O'Reilly staes this all the time when Fox affiliates are referenced.

NENE WAS VERY LIKEABLE THE FIRST SEASON, NOW I DON'T LIKE HER AND SHE LOOKS LIKE A DRAG QUEEN.

THE ONLY ONE I LIKE OUT OF ALL THE HOUSEWIVES IS GRETCHEN, SHE REALLY DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT ANYONE ELSE AND SHE IS REALLY THE ONLY PRETTY ONE !
