A few months ago, NeNe Leakes‘ frenemy Wendy Williams claimed that NeNe was leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe denied that, of course. But then, her behavior was, well, a bit confusing. Then again, that was just typical NeNe behavior in all honesty. She was barely in the beginning of the season. It is unclear if NeNe refused to film or if she was cut out, but the start of the most recent season was just so strange. Even when NeNe wasn’t there she was the topic of conversation.
Then, she just walked out in the middle of filming the reunion. She left her monitor on, with her notebook full of pre-prepared reads open. Most people would get fired for not doing their jobs. However, that doesn’t seem to be a concern of NeNe’s. Instead of returning to the reunion, she called Porsha Williams while she was filming, which was annoying and just made no sense. Just show up if you want to be heard. Plus she was filming from her home. It doesn’t get much easier than that when it comes to a commute to work. This week the offer letters went out for Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13. We already know that Eva Marcille
got fired left the show. Porsha is back for sure. Other than that, it’s just a guessing game of looking for social media clues. And that’s why a lot of people think NeNe got fired.
NeNe’s friend-turned-enemy B. Scott claimed that she got fired. NeNe even tweeted (and deleted), “You are NOT gonna get away with this! I promise.” This sure fed into that narrative. She also retweeted, “I wouldn’t watch RHOA without Mrs. @NeNeLeakes she is what keeps me watching the show, she cracks me up!” How suspicious!
NeNe’s manager spoke to People about the rumors, saying, “It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA. Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”

The manager added that they are “having on-going bigger picture conversations with NBC Universal and have not made any decisions regarding next season specifically. Any speculation or sources trying to create controversy by stating otherwise are incredibly inaccurate. Bloop.”
Gotta love a “bloop” reference here and there. But, let’s read between the lines. Apparently, NeNe wasn’t “fired,” but that doesn’t mean she’s definitely returning either. Seemingly, she has some demands that she’s hoping to receive.
A spokesperson for the Bravo network told the outlet, “There is no truth to this story- NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing.” So, again, I read that as NeNe wants something, whether it’s more money, a guaranteed appearance in every episode, or just something to keep her happy.
In a less official response, NeNe posted a photo of herself laughing at an old reunion with the caption “I can’t chileeeeeeee.” She also tweeted a bunch of laughing emojis, which may be in response to the rumors, but is 100% a bid for attention.
