REAL Housewives Of Atlanta alum Nene Leakes referred to the “pain” she feels after quitting the series as she let her hair down on a drinks night.
The Bravo TV star, 52, confirmed her exit from the show last month, before an emotional interview during which she discussed the alleged “bullying and discrimination” by the network.
Putting her tears temporarily behind her, the 52-year-old glammed up in a strappy black dress with her blonde hair in a poker-straight style.
She wore sunglasses for her night out with her pal, in which they posed in front of a cocktail-filled table.
Nene uploaded the shot to her Instagram page with the caption: “When your girlfriend hit you up and say ‘Let Me Turn Your Pain Into Pleasure.’
“THEN you find out she was talkin bout drankinnnnnnn🍸🍸🍸#weononetonight @terragreenfield.”
The actress and author looked blissfully happy to be putting the past few weeks of turmoil behind her.
Nene recently appeared on The Tamron Hall show where the minute long clip began with Tamron noting that Nene had been “crying this entire” commercial break leading up to the segment.
The host said that Nene wanted to speak with the bosses at Bravo to discuss bullying and discrimination.
The RHOA alum explained: “I can’t tell you everything that I want from them, but I can tell you that I want fair treatment. I deserve fair treatment.”
Nene continued: “I haven’t done anything that no one else has done there or haven’t done even worse.
“I don’t deserve this treatment. I’m as confused as you are.”
When Tamron asked if Nene wanted to return to the Bravo show, she answered: “No, I do not.”
Following weeks of speculation that she was leaving RHOA, the Georgia native admitted she could not strike a deal with Bravo after a series of “emotional negotiations.”
She choked up as she confirmed: “I have made a hard, difficult decision to not be part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13.”
As the TV personality appeared more emotional, she reiterated: “It wasn’t an easy decision for me. It was hard.”
This led to Andy Cohen calling Nene an “icon of the genre,” and fans clearly agree, with many showing their support under recent Instagram snap.
One insisted: “I ain’t watching Bravo until you come back🥂.”
