NeNe Leakes Gets New Reality Show on Lifetime

It’s finally happening! Everyone’s favorite Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, NeNe Leakes, is making her reality TV comeback. Of course, she’s not coming back to Bravo. That door is closed. Instead, she’s bringing her talents to Lifetime with a new show called Outrageous Love with NeNe Leakes.

Outrageous Love will bring the former RHOA star into a slightly different format of reality TV. Rather than documenting her life, this new show will allow her to talk about other people’s lives. The show is said to capture the “trials, triumphs, and tribulations of real couples.”

A press release explained, “The new series showcases wild clips of real people caught up in love as NeNe reacts and gives her personal insight alongside the action.”

NeNe’s new Lifetime show will be her first major project since exiting Real Housewives of Atlanta. Although she’s made some brief appearances on other reality shows, she essentially got blackballed due to her highly-publicized falling out with Bravo. Lifetime is doing us all a favor by putting an end to the NeNe drought.

NeNe isn’t the only former Real Housewives of Atlanta star clawing her way back onto our screens. Her on-again, off-again frenemy Kim Zolciak also just signed on for a new show called Got to Get Out. In the upcoming show for Hulu, Kim, Cynthia Bailey, and a handful of other celebs will be locked inside of a mansion, having to scheme their way out for $1 million.

Clearly, all of these ladies have come a long way since their RHOA heydays. We’re just happy to see them on our screens. Whether it’s a clip show on Lifetime or a ridiculous Hulu competition, we always appreciate any chance to see The Housewives.

Outrageous Love with NeNe Leakes premieres on Lifetime, Monday, July 1 at 10/9c.
