She’s Back! NeNe Leakes Announces ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Return

Published: Wednesday 14th Jun 2017 by Sam

It’s official! NeNe Leakes is returning to ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’ 

The outspoken reality star made the announcement on Twitter moments ago, writing:

Recruiting NeNe – the only original Housewife left on the series – will come as quite the coup for Bravo execs, who’ll no doubt be looking to make the show’s landmark 10th season unmissable.

Her comeback comes on the heels of confirmation that Phaedra Parks has been let go from the show, following the dramatic “lie-gate” saga.

It also appears as though NeNe will be returning in tandem with frenemy Kim Zolciak, who is reported to have signed back on last month.

Season 10 of RHOA premieres this Fall.

    It’s almost comical to me that she had to humbled by dried up Hollywood offers & a season that went successfully without her, for her to come crawling back. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT — Nene needs the series far more than the series needs her. And as much as I can’t stand Kenya, I can’t wait for her to drag Nene for having to return after pretending to be so ABOVE the franchise. I can’t stand Nene Leakes’ brute behinds.

      Everything you said!

    • The Truth June 14, 2017

      But Sis…. she didn’t leave because she wanted to pursue her career in Hollywood! She left because she needed a break from the franchise! Who wouldn’t return to the money???? FOH!

    • Jasmine June 14, 2017

      That is not true. You know what happens when contract negotiations don’t work out. Nene wanted an amount Bravo was unwilling to pay out. I would not be surprised if Nene is just returning as a friend of the show instead of full-time. Bravo knows what Nene offers and her value to the show went downhill when producers stopped wanting to follow her around solo or when she made a debut on “Brawayy”.

      Ms. Gurl. NENE owns this show. She is the OG. Do not get it twisted HER READS ARE S_HIT OF LEGEND. Kenya is a cheap bad skin copy of NENE. NENE is the True OG. She is the ONE. Do not be fooled by BRAVO trying to Make FETCH happen with KENYA, she twirls with her CORNY storylines. NENE is the ICONIC.

    So desperate, so embarrassing

    • The Truth June 14, 2017

      Embarrassing to get your coins??? Where the hell yall get these people from??? Lol

      • Jasmine June 14, 2017

        @TheTruth I agree. Many people leave jobs and come back years later in a different position (more money). That is a part of life and being a good business person. If you are stuck in the same job, making little raises each year (non-risk taker) you end up making less than the person who left the company and came back as a consultant of higher-paid executive. Consultants get paid more and work less.

      • Sam June 15, 2017

        Yep, its embarrassing! She didn’t just leave in silence she left acting f she was bigger than the show and expresses that she was leaving to do bigger better things and the ratings would dip considerably after she left…. thats why its embarrassing. She needed to humble herself and thats the problem, yes, leave to do other things but don’t act if the whole integrity of the show falls on you.
        Coins or no coins

    Funny how the tables have turned, I agree with the first comment. Nene acted as if Hollywood was begging for other roles, and now she has signed back on. Its no shade, If i didnt have any other gigs I would sign back on too. I know the check to return was FAT.
    I just hope she keeps that human off the camera that Nene calls her husband? Hes weak and has no place on the show

      Boy shut up like stfu forever

      I like Greg. It would be nice having a guy on the show that is not a biittch. Todd and Peter have too much estrogen and Apollo is getting bent over off-camera in the jail shower.

    She’s not needed. Neither is Kim Z. Bring back Phaedra, she is this show.

    • Jasmine June 14, 2017

      Phaedra is being brought back as a “friend of the show” filming with only Porshia so far. I think Kim Z should be brought back because she is a great representation of the rednecks in GA. Nene is probably just being brought back as a friend of the show.

  5. Achooo! June 14, 2017

    Nene was never a Hollywood star only her eyes. She need to play the reality game smartly here on forward. I’m glad she is back but they need to get rid of Trailer Park Kim, Thotlandia Porsha and Delusion of Grandeur Sheree as they are tacky and desperate. I wish they make Marlo fulltime and bring three new strong housewives as Atlanta is need of a shake up.

    • Jasmine June 14, 2017

      Marlo will never be full time because the other women do not like filming with her. Since Bravo keeps numerous boring white women on payroll as “housewives” for their franchise I see no reason why people are scrutinizing the few black women on payroll as “housewives.” It is just tv and Bravo can hire whomever they like.

  6. The Truth June 14, 2017

    Isaa return!!!!! Get those coins Queen!!!! So excited!!!!

  7. fr3sssh2deathhh June 14, 2017

    Bish built like whole fridge. Not a white one tho, Nene too rich for that lol

  8. bravo!! June 14, 2017

    We all know the truth behind why HBIC return for another season.. We also she don’t have nothing to talk about or a story line. She back to divide, cause drama, show off her new work, & give a good read … We all know Hollywood wasn’t Giving NeNe no work. Welcome back NeNe!!

    • Jasmine June 14, 2017

      I think Nene has a better storyline than the rest of the women on the show. Unlike most of the women, Nene has a husband, a clothing line, businesses, acting auditions, a song going to college coupled with another son in and out of prison, etc. She makes good reality tv and she knows how to read and shade the other women to a T. Kenya is a snorefest with her bad acting / lack of a real life, Kandi serves Mama Joyce hating but cancelled her best storyline (singing / music producing), Sheree is booooring, Porshia is on thin ice with the other women not wanting to film with her, and Cynthia is extremely booooooring.

    • Tammy June 15, 2017

      She has her own fashion line
      She’s doing her comedy club tour
      She’s on fashion police
      She’s doing speechs, meet and greats
      She’s working on her blog
      And is actually now working on something new that she will be annoncing soon, check her resume before you speak boo 😉

      • Tammy June 15, 2017

        My comment was for @bravo!!

      • bravo!! June 19, 2017

        I haven’t heard nothing about her clothing Line, comedy tour in like 2 yrs. I haven’t watch fashion police in a while. But if she still got that gig more power to her. Question.. if you know all this about NeNe how is her story line better than other housewives? We do hear about some drama before the season began. But if we already know a person whole season then there is no story line. She not going to talk about her oldest son life, which will be a story line. But she choose not too. People will relate to you having all the money & still have family issue

  9. Frank June 15, 2017

    I’m ready for Nene to address Kenya throwing shade on the breakfast club and I’m ready for all the girls to come at Nene about what she said on watching what happens live.

  10. Ropeburn June 21, 2017

    Pathetic! I guess she doesn’t have any more offers to play the “sassy black woman” on cancelled sitcoms.
