NeNe Leakes claims she is being falsely advertised as the host and judge for an event called “Roc Da Runway,” but new documents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com prove otherwise.
The event organizer is speaking out after the Real Housewives of Atlanta star denied her involvement with the fashion event, which is being held on Jan. 19 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“NeNe was booked to host the evening but backed out,” organizer Carlondo Brown tells Radar – adding that he has a signed contract to prove it.
The alleged contact, signed Nov. 26, appears to be signed by the reality TV star, who agrees to make a one-hour appearance at the show, followed by one hour at the after party.
Leakes’ two-hour appearance fee was $15,000 — which includes all travel and lodging expenses — and she was given a $7,500 deposit.
The “Roc Da Runway” event flyers bared the Bravo star’s image with the following info: “Celebrity Guest NeNe Leakes (The Real Housewives of Atlanta) will be hanging out with us this year as a HOST & JUDGE!”
After the flyers surfaced online, Leakes re-tweeted several posts regarding the evening, claiming that she is not hosting the event and declaring the details “all lies.”
“I am NOT a part of this event! Please take my picture off this flyer! Stop trying 2 fool the people,” Leakes claimed on Dec. 25.
The event organizer is “appalled” by her Twitter rant, exclusively telling Radar: “We are disappointed that she disrespected and hurt our brand. She has no integrity.”
“Our hope this that she’ll be honest with her fans and admit she was booked but decided to back out for some unknown reason,” Brown adds.
