The group released a statement on Thursday morning saying the Real Housewives of Atlanta star will no longer be hosting their reunion tour, adding they were “dismayed” at her remarks.
"As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best.
"Our hearts go out to all female victims and we stand with you!

They also wished NeNe the best as she "navigates this very difficult period."

UPDATE 2 (10/10/17 at 9:43 a.m. ET):
Nene Leakes’s “comedy” stunt over the weekend may cost her millions.
According to sources, the reality star could lose her Real Housewives of Atlanta gig after she told an audience member “I hope you get raped by your Uber driver.”
“There will be a punishment and they are determining what it will be. There’s been so much backlash and co-stars say she’s gone too far and they want her gone,” a source told Radar Online.
“By tomorrow there should be some repercussion from a leave of absence to being fired. They are filming now and would have to figure out how it will play out.”
If they do decide to let her go, she could lose up to $2M!
Original story (10/9/17 at 1:50 p.m. ET):
Nene Leakes just can't seem to hold her tongue.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star found herself in a lot of trouble after she lashed out at a fan during her comedy show over the weekend.
One audience member snagged footage of the incident and, we have to admit, this does not look good for the reality star.
It all started on Saturday, October 7 during the 49-year-old's set at the Paramount in Oakland, California.
Things turned for the worse when the Fashion Police co-host started to get booed by her audience.
If we know anything about Nene, it's that she hates negative attention.
Needless to say, the Bravolebrity did not handle the criticism well and took her frustrations out on one audience member in particular.
She told the woman in the crowd "she hopes her Uber driver rapes her tonight," according to Ta Mala Drake-Smith, who got the footage.
"So NeNe Leakes comes to Oakland at the Paramount, gets boo’ed, then tells a woman in [the] crowd ‘she hopes the Uber driver that picks her up rapes her.’ Wow," she wrote on Facebook.
"This is a prime example as to why everybody is not a comedian.”
We know, it's revolting.
The Atlanta native lashed out at the 20-year-old on Instagram.
“We don’t have roaches! If you found one, you brought it with you or it fell outta yo funky p—y," she wrote.
"Please know I will get you all the way together when you start f—king with me and mine!"
She continued, "Go somewhere and let the air outta those fake lips, fake t—tties and fake ass because you will never be Kylie Jenner.”
This is all so immature.
