Nene Leakes has confirmed the murmurs: she will not be part of the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
And by the tone and choice of her words, it looks like her exit may be final in more ways than one.
Full story below…
Moments ago, the reality star took to her YouTube page to formally announce that – after lengthy negotiations – she will not be a cast member of the Bravo show’s upcoming 13th season.
Perhaps most notable, though, was how thoroughly she bid adieu – almost as if she’s left entirely.
Also of note was Leakes’ vague-but-noticeable insistence that she had no part in a recent report claiming that she isn’t set to sue Bravo as part of a rumored discrimination suit along with other dismissed + disgruntled stars. Things that make you go hmm.
Watch Leakes spill in her words:
Leakes, a RHOA original, joins Eva Marcille on the list of names no longer in the mix of the hit show.
Harsh as it may sound, we’re here for it.
Anyone who has watched recent seasons can attest to how awkward Leakes’ presence has been for the the cast, viewers, and herself.
It’s clear her issues with the ladies make for a hella tense atmosphere – and not in the entertaining way.
The irony is that the warmth and lightness vibrating from her in the video above are exactly what would have served as a redemption of sorts on the show. But, alas, the situation is what it is.
Roll on RHOA season 13!
