Nene Leakes is claiming she experienced abuse while on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

On Monday, the former “RHOA” made a series of tweets claiming she has text messages that detail ongoing abuse from her time with the show. “You can’t turn on your teammate and get away with this @ stevengrossman #DarrellMiller #Foxrothschild suppression, retaliation, discrimination, unequal pay, devaluation against black women is real, it’s painful and it hurts. I will fight for all women rights PS: FIX IT,” the reality start wrote. In the tweet she tagged her manager Steven Grossman, her attorney David Miller, and Fox Rothschild. 

“Sorry abt my typos! I don’t tweet abt the show, i do not watch the show, i don’t talk abt the show & i don’t talk abt the girls. My concern is the treatment & abuse behind the scenes that you DO NOT see. Please don’t make fun of that. It’s real, painful & it’s happening,” she said in another tweet. 

Her last tweet read: “I have numerous emails, text messages, RHOA group text, voice recording that go back yearsssss. I never got rid of anything! Fix your dirty work. Being a racist is so yesterday.”

These tweets follow a series of posts Leakes made on her Twitter on Feb. 1. “stand up, protest, sign the petition & stop watching! The treatment of black women behind the scene is wrong. Even the cast that’s currently filming knows wrong is & was happening. They try to silence us! We MUST speak up when wrong is happening. I won’t stop,” Leakes wrote. “They pay off & reward lawyers, managers, agents & even certain cast members to keep their dirty work going. I won’t stop speaking out until something is done. I will call names if need be,” Leakes continued. 

In her last tweets on Feb. 1, Leakes said she wouldn’t hesitate to call out individuals by name. “They scared to loose their checks but you can’t let them get away with Discrimination, retaliation and blacklisting and unequal pay! There’s power in numbers. I will start calling EVERYBODY OUT,” the tweet reads. “I didn’t say anything publicly for years but i spoke out behind the scenes in emails, text messages and conferences call. I can show you! I spoke to an executive for help as well for years. it MUST STOP! It doesn’t matter your race, just fight for what’s right.”

Cops arrested a man who attempted to bury his wife alive during a violent attack at a California beach Thursday night.

According to The New York Post, cops responded to a 911 call from the woman just before 9 p.m. She told the police that her husband had just tried to kill her on Coronado Beach.

Twenty-three-year-old Jose Luis Mares III was arrested for attacking his wife after the couple got into an argument that quickly escalated to violence while they were at the beach.

Cops told KSWB that Mares III originally tried to throw his wife out into the surf before bringing her to a lifeguard tower, where he tried burying her alive in the sand.

“She said there was a hole in the ground, and the hole had previously been there from probably kids digging it during the day,” Detective Ryan Brennan of the Coronado Police Department told the news outlet. “But during the struggle, she said he threw her in that hole when he began putting sand on top of her.”

The suspect kicked his wife repeatedly and then suddenly stopped and fled. That’s when the courageous woman ran toward Ocean Boulevard, where a passerby found her on the sidewalk and alerted authorities.

Fans are receiving the first look at HBO‘s documentary centered around the life and music career of iconic singer Tina Turner.

On Tuesday, HBO dropped the official trailer for the documentary “Tina.” According to People, the documentary will start at the beginning of her childhood. “My mother used to sit in the window of the kitchen when she was making dinner on Sundays. I used to just watch her. She was just so pretty,” the 81-year-old says in the trailer. “One day, she wasn’t in that window. She was never in it again,” said Tina referring to the moment her mother left her family to get away from the abusive relationship she had with Turner’s father.

“I wanted her to come for me. I waited, and she never did. And it’s alright — you know why?” she adds. “I’m a girl from a cotton field that pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes. And I’m here for you.”

The documentary was directed by Dan Lindsay, T.J. Martin, and Lightbox. In the description, the doc is described as a “revealing and intimate look at the life and career.” “Tina” will include interviews with Tina in her hometown of Zurich, Switzerland, along with new footage, audiotapes, and personal photos of the songstress.

Hollywood greats like Oprah Winfrey and Tina Turner – who played her in the hit film “What’s Love Got to Do with It” – will also be featured in the documentary. The doc will hit HBO on March 27.
