Atlanta’s most famous housewife, NeNe Leakes, is accused of stiffing her wedding planner out of millions of dollars.
Leakes, who remarried her ex-husband, Gregg, in a lavish, fairytale wedding in June, is being sued by celebrity wedding planner Tiffany Cook for $2.5 million. Cook claims she planned Leakes’ over-the-top nuptials, which will air on Bravo this fall. She said Leakes paid a deposit, but skipped out on the remaining balance of $1,1142,900.
Leakes told TMZ, "I don't owe her a f*ing dime." She said she never hired Cook and that Cook is trying to grab 15 minutes of fame to jumpstart her business. It is reported that Cook planned the ill-fated marriage of Leakes’ “Real Housewives” cast mates Porsha and Kordell Stewart in 2011.
Leakes also tweeted: “My wedding planner was Tony Conway & I don't owe him a dime! My wedding was paid 4 n cash! Tune n Sept 17th @ 9pm on Bravo & see 4 yourself!”
“I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding” premieres on Bravo on Sept. 17.
