Although there are rumors that Leakes has not been asked to continue on RHOA, her representative shot down all the negativity.
“It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA,” Leakes’ rep, Steven Grossman, told People in a statement. “Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”

There are also rumors that Leakes is looking to get a spinoff on another network. However, it was later reported that E! is not interested in developing a show around the “tastiest peach” in Atlanta. More news about RHOA Season 13 is expected to come out in the coming days.
