Somehow, NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey made amends this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. That is miraculous after all of NeNe’s nastiness because Cynthia was friends with Kenya Moore. The conflict between Kenya and NeNe continued to drive much of the drama this season on RHOA.
The ladies filmed the first virtual reunion in Bravo history, and it is epic! I am here for all the ladies’ fashion and their shadiness. I love that host Andy Cohen has his own mute button, which certainly came in handy.
Speaking of reunions, it is normal to have a Housewife storm off the set, and later return. NeNe left during the first part of the virtual reunion to pee and handle some feminine issues (ummm…thanks for sharing.)
But during the second installment of the RHOA reunion, shortly after Andy was discussing NeNe and Cynthia’s friendship and Cynthia’s relationship with Kenya, NeNe closed her computer and peaced out.

Cynthia expressed her displeasure during an interview with HollywoodLife. Cynthia stated that she “wasn’t happy” that NeNe wandered off.
“We’re at work. We’re shooting a show,” Cynthia explained. “I [also] would’ve liked to have walked out and maybe taken a nap for a couple of hours and came back if we could just walk out.” Then Cynthia broke down how NeNe might have cost all of the Atlanta Housewives some money.
The model remarked, “Just from a professional standpoint, I thought, ‘You know what, the longer everybody stays in their seat and tries to contribute and really engage in the show, the more episodes we’re going to get and the more episodes we’re going to get, the more money we’re going to get, so NeNe walking out probably cost us an episode because she wasn’t there the whole time that Yovanna [Momplaisir] came and that is coming up next week,’” Cynthia shared. “And I felt like that was her opportunity to clear her name and there was a lot of stuff.”
So, will RHOA viewers see NeNe at all in the upcoming third part of the reunion? Will NeNe get into it with Yovanna over “snake gate?” Cynthia doesn’t think so.

“I don’t even think we got to NeNe’s package because she left. She was in my package and there were some things that I wanted to talk about to get straight and just let the fans know where we were and be a little more specific but we never got to because she left and we didn’t talk about it and we didn’t stop,” Cynthia commented. “We didn’t take a break. We just kept going and just left her square empty.”
Cynthia added, “I don’t know how they’re going to edit it. I don’t think she came back. When we shot it, I don’t remember her coming back,” Cynthia said. “I don’t know how that’s going to work. All I know is when she left that last time, she didn’t ever come back.”
