NeNe Leakes May Not Return For ‘RHOA’ Season 13 “I Need To Have a Conversation with The Network..I Can’t Have These Girls Fighting with Me On TV For No Reason Anymore”

Posted May 19, 2020

Is NeNe Leakes calling it quits on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ again?

The OG peach holder did an interview with People where she revealed that her time on the show may be coming to a close once again.

Fans may recall that Leakes previously departed the show to take some time off back in seasons 8 and 9 (although she appeared as a guest on season 8) she didn’t return to the franchise full time again until season 10.

Well, Leakes says it may be time to take another break, but she’s not quite sure just yet. She revealed that she plans to have some serious talk with the network as she feels the ladies have all ganged up on her, and are allowed to do so.

“I don’t know. I just don’t know, I got back and forth with it every day. I feel like it’s a big conversation I need to have with the network and with production. Because if they value their talent in some sort of way, then we need to talk. We need to come up with some sort of compromise here.”

“This time, being quarantined [amid the coronavirus pandemic] has really made me appreciate a lot of things about my life anyway,” Leakes adds. “I keep saying to people, ‘I want my life back.’ I can’t have these girls fighting with me on TV for no reason anymore. I’ve got to move forward. And if that’s all you want from me, I have to move on and I got to go. Me and my wig got to leave, honey.”

NeNe’s comments come after one of her most rocky seasons to date, which saw her initially on the outs with every full-time cast member including Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Eva Marcille, Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore.

She was able to make amends with all the ladies except for Kenya by the end of the season, but things went back to square one with her at odds with all the ladies (except Porsha) just in time for the virtual reunion that is currently airing.

Despite holding her own at the reunion, NeNe says that she’s tired of the banter and back and forth with the women, and feels like their behavior is unfair.

“I’m still human, it’s not okay, sitting and being attacked over and over by the same people about nothing. It stresses me out. I am sensitive, I am. If that’s all these girls have the time to do, then production needs to get some new people on the show. Because why are you guys still focused on me over here? Why do you bother me like this? Leave me alone, child. Let me just be over here by myself. Why do you bother me like this? It doesn’t make sense. Why do they argue with me every time they see me?”

“You want to see if you can break me or not? You want the throne? It’s not going to happen. They ain’t going to be able to have it. It’s not going to be able to work. It’s impossible, honey,”

“So I would just say we cut it out. It’s too much work.”

She also revealed that if she is able to come to a compromise, she would be happy to return next season, and just wants to be in a better place with the ladies. However, she has no intention of making up with Kenya.

“I don’t have a problem with filming with her. I just don’t have anything to say to her. There’s nothing that I need to say to her because I have said all that I need to say, I have made apologies. I’ve extended olive branches. And she don’t deserve it, but I did it anyway. Somebody has got to be the bigger person. So I’m not engaging. She wants to keep the arguing going on for as long as she can. But what are we going to keep up? We look stupid now. We don’t have a reason! So I have another thing coming for that, sister. The door is closed, sweetie.”

She also took to IG to address her “walking off” from the reunion.
