As we all get ready for the new season of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, it goes without saying that it is going to be strange without the Queen Bee, aka NeNe Leakes. In fact, so many fans are claiming that they won’t even watch the show now, while many others are holding out hope that Leakes will change her mind and return to the series. Don’t hold your breath, folks.
You see, whether or not you want to see NeNe Leakes return, it doesn’t look like she is going to. We know, never say never, but according to Leakes herself, she is much happier being away from the ladies and the drama of the show. However, that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of her. Come inside and check out what NeNe had to say recently.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is definitely going to have a different feel without NeNe Leakes on the set, but don’t worry about NeNe, because she is doing just fine. In fact, the star recently told CBS, “I feel like I’m happier. When you work in a lot of negativity, it becomes a part of who you are and I feel like I’m getting back to me, myself and I. It’s happy and free. It’s been a refreshing time away from the girls,” of leaving RHOA.
With that in mind, that certainly doesn’t mean Leakes won’t return – it’s just not happening right now. “No. I’m a part of the Bravo family. I love Bravo, they love me — I have a great relationship with Andy Cohen. Everybody over there loves me. We all have a good relationship. I started the show and I’d go back whenever I felt like going back. I just don’t ever want to say never, ” NeNe went on to dish.
That also doesn’t mean she is stepping away from television altogether. In fact, next year, Leakes will be joining Betty White to host a show called To Tell The Truth, which she says, “It’s going to be an amazing show. It comes out in the new year. Anthony Anderson is hosting it, Betty White is on the panel, myself and Jalen Rose. It’s the same as the old show ‘To Tell the Truth’ — they revamped it and we turned it into something that’s a little hilarious.”
We’re thrilled to hear that NeNe is so much happier, but we will definitely miss her on the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
