Radar previously reported that Leakes, 49, told a heckler at her performance in Oakland, "I hope your Uber drive rapes your a** tonight." Bravo immediately rushed to have eyewitnesses sign releases for their video footage in case the scandal was brought up by her costars, and had conversations about firing her behind the scenes.
