The Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes says a report that she and her husband have been evicted is "a huge misunderstanding and grossly inaccurate.

"I am truly blessed to enjoy a wonderful life and lifestyle," she says in a post on a Bravo blog. "We have indeed moved to another home, but we did so on our own free will. We live in an absolutely beautiful home, and we are fortunate to be able to live in the place of our choice."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that an eviction notice was filed Sept. 24 against NeNe's husband, real estate investor Gregory Leakes, because he owed $6,240 in past rent on their five-bedroom home (featured on their hit Bravo show).

"Unfortunately, there are many families who are facing real foreclosures and real evictions. That is not and never was the case with us," NeNe claims. "I know where we live and how we live, and for those blessings, I am humbly thankful. "Without wasting time on the details, the only thing I will say is that we were NOT evicted," she goes on. "Everybody knows that I like to be honest, real and upfront. If something was wrong, I would tell you!"
