Nene Leakes was on fire in her red Marchesa dress during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show but RadarOnline.com exclusively learned Harvey Weinstein’s fashion designer ex-wife was “horrified” that she was in her gown.
Georgina Chapman, whose fashion line was nearly destroyed after the news broke about her movie mogul husband’s shocking sexual assault scandal, refused to dress the Bravolebrity in her gown, despite sales coming to a near-halt.
“Georgina was horrified that NeNe wore one of her dresses on TV,” a source close to the shamed Chapman told Radar.
“NeNe bought that dress at Neiman Marcus because Georgina refused to ever gift her one of her dresses for free.”
Leakes loved the dress and captioned one picture wearing it with the hashtag “slayingmarchesa,” but the insider snitched to Radar that Weinstein’s wife was haughty about the reality star.
Leakes had a lengthy love affair with the line, reaching out in 2013 to wear a dress on the RHOA reunion and the label turned her down.
“Georgina said she would never dress a Housewife, ever, and she still feels that way. NeNe was turned down and she bought that dress off the rack too.”
A rep for Chapman denied Chapman snubbed Leakes.
“This is completely false. Georgina is always honored when any woman chooses to wear Marchesa," the spokesperson told Radar.
Chapman left Weinstein as the sexual assault scandal broke and the pair reached a divorce settlement in early 2018.
As Radar readers know, despite the backlash from her rape joke scandal, Leakes was offered another lucrative contract to return for another season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
