NeNe Leakes' future with Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to be a source of speculation. If you're a natural cynic like myself, you're probably starting to think this looks like a big ole' PR stunt by Bravo (and NeNe)!
First there were rumors that NeNe was demoted for angering Andy Cohen, refusing to bring the drama, and making unreasonable demands. Then came the rumors, started by NeNe herself, that she had quit the show. Then NeNe made a prominent appearance at the Upfronts and along with Kandi Burruss was the only RHOA star to represent. Now I firmly believe all the ladies from RHOA will be invited to return, will they all accept – who knows, but with with ratings this high Bravo is not going to mess with success too much!
However, NeNe continues to stoke the rumors that she may leave the show. In a recent interview with NaughtyButNiceRob she admitted she is considering downgrading her role. "I will still work for Bravo – I’m happy to stay on. We just need to work out some things," NeNe revealed. "I’m happy to do some things. I don’t know if I’m happy to be a full time Housewife."
Per the usual with the end of a Housewives season, casting rumors are abound! However, given that Real Housewives of Atlanta ended on such a tumultuous note (albeit with the highest ratings in Housewives franchise history!) it's no surprise that some casting shakeups are likely.
There's been some reports claiming NeNe Leakes has been fired from the show that made her a household name for her lackluster storyline and ungracious behavior toward the network. I, for one, do not believe for a second that NeNe was fired. Especially with Bravo honcho Andy Cohen just giving an interview where he named her the HW he likes to have dinner with the most!
A source tells Life & Style, however, that Andy has tired of the monster he created! “He was pissed about the way that NeNe acted on the reunion this year, so much so that he might not ask her to come back,” the source says. “He thinks she has become a diva and was very irritated with her for not really answering his questions!”
The super-duper sized 3-hour episode of Celebrity Apprenticeaired last night and it did not disappoint! The episode brought us a not so surprising whiner and quitter, a sequel of a previous firing, and ended with arguably the most shocking “you’re fired” of the season!
Let’s begin with Donald Trump meeting up with the remaining 7 contestants to give them instructions for their new task. Nene Leakes, who verbally attackedStar Jones last week for reasons still unclear, is feeling much better this day and ready to make up with Star. When asked by Trump if she was ready to work with the Nene, Star made it clear that answer was a NO. And can you blame her? Trump ended up moving Nene to the other team, and the overly sensitive bully’s feelings were apparently hurt. Victim Nene stated she needed some time to herself, and selfishly disappeared on her team, who were forced to work without her. “Nene is so disappointing to me. You can’t abandon us. She didn’t even say goodbye,” stated John Rich.
