NeNe casually brushed off the allegations with a sense of humor.
‘Nobody want to steal nobody else’s problems, honey,’ she said laughing.
NeNe was sued by Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh who alleged in a new lawsuit that NeNe began her relationship with boyfriend Nyonisela Sioh while he was still married.
In legal documents, Malomine claims NeNe and Nyonisela’s relationship has resulted in her suffering emotional distress, mental anguish and loss of affection, TMZ reported.

Under North Carolina criminal law, where the suit has been filed, adultery is a misdemeanor, which is defined as when any man and woman, not being married to each other ‘lewdly and lasciviously associate, bed and cohabit together.’
The alienation of affection law is based on 18th century English common law in which a husband could sue another man for the loss of his wife’s affection.
Women could not sue at the time, since they were considered the property of their husband’s, but now either sex can sue under the statute.

Malomine is seeking around $100,000 in damages according to the suit.
NeNe and the men’s fashion designer were first spotted together in December 2021 in Miami, about three months after NeNe’s husband, Gregg Leakes, died of colon cancer at age 66.
The Dynasty actress posted some pictures from her birthday on December 15, and her new beau was included in some of the shots.
Since then, the couple have been public, attending various events together.
Suing: The former RHOA cast member is suing the creators of the Real Housewives franchise, claiming they ignored her complaints about allegedly racist remarks from Kim Zolciak. Pictured Atlanta November 2009
In April, the RHOA alum filed her own lawsuit against the companies that produce the Real Housewives shows, claiming they created a racist work environment.
‘NBC, Bravo and True foster a corporate and workplace culture in which racially insensitive and inappropriate behavior is tolerated — if not, encouraged,’ the suit claimed.
NeNe alleges she had to endure years of racist remarks from cast member Kim Zolciak, and that her complaints to producers were ignored.
