Ever-outspoken actress-comedienne Mo’Nique has had enough of the rumor mill spinning stories of her alleged plan to join the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ cast.
Taking to Instagram Wednesday (July 8), the Academy Award-winner addressed the murmur head on that she was in talks to replace veteran cast member NeNe Leakes on the show’s forthcoming 13th season.
Hear her words inside:
“I wasn’t gone say not a damn thing cause I knew it was a damn lie.
But, it keeps on going and going and going…Mo’Nique, are you doing ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and replacing NeNe Leakes?
Let me let it come straight from my mouth – no my sweet babies. I am not doing ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and in my humble opinion, NeNe Leakes is irreplaceable.
NeNe Leakes is ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ if you ask me, baby.”
Mo’s statement comes weeks after execs from the show’s network home, BRAVO, officially stated there was “no truth” to swirling reports Leakes had been fired.
Even her manager, Steven Grossman, echoed the sentiment by saying:
“It was made abundantly clear [by Bravo] prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”
