This ‘RHOA’ Housewife Is Rumored to Be Leaving After Season 12
Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is just getting started and the drama is heating up. The return of Kenya Moore to the cast after taking a season off has ruffled feathers. Although NeNe Leakes says that she’s unbothered with Moore’s comeback, she did not welcome her with open arms either. There are rumblings that it’s Leakes that might be unhappy on the show and is preparing her exit.
Leakes went missing for the two first episodes of season 12 after reportedly holding off on signing her contract. Production for the show had started without the OG but producers were able to convince her to sign on for another season. Leakes says she is not sure if she will return for another season after the current one wraps up.
“I don’t know…I really don’t know that. Never really know what I’m doing until the season is over and we talk about it,” Leakes told Hollywood Life about returning to RHOA.
The Glee alum revealed there’s drama behind the scenes that she doesn’t find “fair” and making her rethink her return.
“I just think there’s a lot of things that aren’t fair,” she added. “Just things that — Behind the scenes things that you guys don’t get to see. So I just have to talk with my team and decide what’s best for me.”
Nene Leakes feuds with Andy Cohen
After last week’s episode of RHOA, Andy Cohen made a shady comment about Leakes on Watch What Happens Live that started a new feud. The Bravo host shined a spotlight on Leakes for wearing the same dress twice.
“By the way, one of Nene’s confessional looks this year is the same dress she wore to our big doorbell show in L.A. where the strap broke, so I guess she fixed her strap, which we love,” Cohen said on his late-night show.
Cohen alleged that he meant no shade by his comment but Leakes thought otherwise.
“Can somebody please tell me what was the point of this?” she asked. “Like I don’t get it. That was 2 years ago I wore this dress ONCE, so i can’t sit in a confessional with it on @bravoandy. How many times have you recycled your suits and ties? #pointless #messy why you care?”
“It’s enough that we #RHOA ladies come for each other and now we have to worry about executives coming for us!” Leakes continued. “No, I mean coming for me! It’s not cool. Wasn’t you interviewing those girls? What you mad about? Y’all stay coming for me but soon as I say something or do something I’m wrong. I DONT APPRECIATE THIS AT ALL.”
Is Nene Leakes hinting leaving ‘RHOA’?
Leakes is hinting there’s tension with production and is seemingly unhappy with what is happening. In response to a fan, she furthered the narrative that her relationship with Cohen is faltering.
One admirer, in particular, believed that the Atlanta resident was one of Cohen’s favorite but after that, she changed her mind. In addition, Leakes confirmed she’s not.
“I am not his favorite. Trust me on that. I know a lot [of] things you don’t,” Leakes replied.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs every Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
