Kenya & NeNe at RHOA reunion

Kenya Moore Credits NeNe Leakes For Making Real Housewives Of Atlanta The Success That It Is Today

All of us Bravoholics have our opinions about every Real Housewives. But the one I cannot understand is the lack of respect some Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers show to NeNe Leakes. Yes, NeNe’s last few seasons on the show weren’t her best by far. And people like Kenya Moore, who is an expert at playing the villain, were calling her out on it in their own ways. But NeNe is and always has been the Beyonce. She’s THE OG of OGs. And she deserves to be respected as such. BLOOP.

NeNe recently made my heart flutter by saying she’d be open to an RHOA return, after a sit-down chat with Andy Cohen. It seemed to me like NeNe burned her last bridge with the network, but I don’t think her points were totally invalid. I think if communicated calmly and off-camera, she might find a way to patch things up with Andy. As for some of her RHOA co-stars, that might take a little more work and a few clauses added to her friendship contracts.

NeNe and Kenya particularly had a rough few seasons. Their feud got ugly, and I attribute it to their cut-throat attempts at battling for the Queen Bee spot. But NeNe’s the star, that’s just the case. Does that mean sometimes she might need to be checked when her ego gets the best of her? Absolutely. We’ve seen Kandi Burruss take that route before. Twirl is iconic in her own right on the show. NayNay can play the Real Housewives game better than anybody, and her legacy should not be questioned. At least if NeNe comes back, she won’t have to worry about Cynthia Bailey getting in the middle of her vs. Kenya these days.

Twirl recently made some kind comments toward NeNe when Gregg Leakes sadly passed away from cancer. It was nice to see her put her differences aside and show some respect. So I was excited when Kenya said in a recent interview on E! Online’s Daily Pop a few actual nice remarks about NeNe.

When asked her opinion about if NeNe should return to RHOA, Kenya wasn’t all that shady. “I know she has a lot of fans and people love her,” Twirl said. “She has made her mark on the show and she made the show what it is.” Now THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. Good old fashion respect. Kenya added that by NeNe’s recent statements, it sounds like her old co-star is really wanting to come back. Come on Bravo MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Kenya was a little bit skeptical about NeNe’s ability to make peace with Andy and the network. “Whether there’s a future for her there in terms of with the network or, you know, the higher-ups, I can’t really speak to that,” she added. Baby steps, baby steps.
