NeNe Leakes and Bethenny Frankel have “no issues” with each other — even though the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum scrubbed every trace of her appearance on the latter’s “Just B” podcast from her Instagram.
A source close to the situation tells Page Six exclusively that Leakes, 55, and the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star, 53, “have been talking and texting all week,” even discussing working on “future projects together.”
“NeNe was promoting the podcast episodes AS they were airing,” our insider says of the September shows. “There is no reason for her to promote old episodes, and Bethenny has had new episodes since then.”
We’re told Leakes — who sued Bravo in April 2022 for allegedly fostering and tolerating a hostile and racist work environment — simply “cleaned up her Instagram from old promos, as many people do, including Bethenny.”
Our source points out that Frankel — who has taken aim at both the network and honcho Andy Cohen amid her “reality reckoning” movement — “is so grateful that she and NeNe got to do a few episodes together.”

One informant tells us that Leakes recently re-followed Bravo’s Instagram page, while another claims it was the network that started following Leakes again.
Either way, they now follow each other, which comes shortly after Cohen’s eyebrow-raising remarks at BravoCon 2023.
When the “Real Housewives” executive producer was asked during the three-day convention whether Leakes would be able to return to “RHOA” after her September 2020 exit, he replied, “I’m a nostalgic guy. She and I came up together, and there’s always room in my heart for, you know, everybody.”
“Who knows?” Cohen, 55, added. “I mean, she asked me a few years ago to keep her name out of my mouth, so I try to respect that.”
Reps for Leakes, Frankel and Bravo did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.
