NeNe Leakes will not be returning as a regular to ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
The news came courtesy of the reality star herself during a sit-down interview on The Steve Harvey Show.
Usually a fire-cracker, a surprisingly subdued Leakes explained that she “felt like Kelly Ripa” after not being contacted to appear in season 9 of the Bravo hit.

Her words ring somewhat odd given that she also didn’t feature as a peach-holding housewife in the last season of the show.
In any case, fans of outspoken Leakes needn’t riot just yet. For, she offered an optimistic outlook on her future with the franchise.
