As Nene Leakes‘ future on the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ hangs in the balance, a new report claims the star is vigorously shopping her own spin-off show.
Full story below…
Last week the 52-year-old hit headlines when sources alleged that she has essentially been “fired” from the Bravo series; with the intimation being that she hasn’t been asked back. Or at least not in the capacity she desires.
Steven Grossman, Nene’s manager, was quick to clap back with a denial and stressed that negotiations were on-going. He notably added:
“[We are] having on-going bigger picture conversations with NBC Universal and have not made any decisions regarding next season specifically.”
Well, it appears more has been shed on the matter.
A fresh report has revealed that Nene is angling for her own show on the E! network – which oh so interestingly is owned by the NBC Universal group (along with Bravo).
A source said:
“Nene is pursuing her own show at E! because she’s felt like her time at Bravo has been up for awhile.
Nene has been “pushing for [the spinoff] behind Bravo’s back so when they do let her go, she looks like she came out on top with something else already in the works.
Bravo isn’t budging on the contracts so unless she accepts that, it looks like she won’t be coming back [to RHOA].”
As for the status of the show Leakes is proposing, E! “has shown no interest in green-lighting the series” thus far.
Would you check for a Nene spin-off?
