This can’t be real life….
NeNe Leakes has just announced that she will no longer be on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It is being said that NeNe’s departure from the show was caused by her wanting more money for the next season.
NeNe has released the following statement about her exit from the show
NeNe Leakes tells People Magazine
“This was definitely a hard decision for me. Me and my husband have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”
So what is up next for NeNe?
“I’m actually going to be doing a new primetime television show with a big legend. All of my fans will get to see me be really happy, witty, and funny and tell all of those one liners that I always have said on Housewives.”
NeNe went on to say
“I feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. There were times I was a target. I won’t miss the negativity.”
“I think some of the girls will be happy. They always felt like I was the star and they were never able to really shine with me there, so here’s their opportunity to shine. I’m not saying I’m gone forever. I’ll probably pop up and play with those girls every now and then.”
Sad that his last Atlanta OG is leaving, Andy Cohen wrote this sweet message to NeNe on Twitter
“We love NeNe Leakes and she is always welcome back to the house she helped build! She’s a Real Housewife forever!”
Although I didn’t always agree with NeNe, I am still going to miss her being on the show. Andy was right in saying she helped build the Housewives franchise. Hope to see her come back eventually.
