NeNe Leakes is no longer a cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but maybe someone should let her know. In September, she announced that she wouldn’t be part of RHOA Season 13 after some “emotional negotiations.” In other words, NeNe didn’t get the cash she felt she deserved.
It wasn’t a surprise when NeNe dipped out of the Season 12 RHOA virtual reunion. Then all hell broke loose. NeNe alleged that her former friend, talk show host Wendy Williams, uses cocaine. Then she accused Andy Cohen of being a racist. NeNe also claimed that Bravo forced her to exit the show.
Real Housewives of Atlanta fans have watched NeNe Leakes drag all of her co-stars this season. NeNe had a lot to say about cast member Kenya Moore’s marriage and split from husband Marc Daly. But I’m not sure that NeNe should be doling out marital advice. RHOA fans know that NeNe and her husband, Gregg Leakes, divorced in 2011, only to remarry in 2013. But Gregg’s diagnosis of colon cancer in 2018 strained the couple’s marriage as NeNe stepped into the role of caregiver.
But it looks like karma is returning to bite NeNe. Maybe it is the same karma that NeNe invoked when she wondered if her husband Gregg developed cancer because he cheated on her. Damn, NeNe! That was harsh.
NeNe Leakes has never been shy about accusing people of nefarious activities. Perched high atop her soapbox on Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe has often been front and center in a quest to keep all focus centered around her. Unfortunately, sometimes those desperate bids for attention backfire and serve to diminish any redeeming quality left in someone’s otherwise questionable personality.
NeNe didn’t have a spectacular RHOA season. Much of her storyline was forced apologies because the rest of the cast was over her attitude. Now NeNe is under speculation for having a “secret lover” and the rumors are being fueled by none other than Kenya Moore. ‘Ol Ken might have a score to settle with NeNe, who ran her mouth about Kenya’s marriage. Now Kenya is speaking on NeNe’s supposed affair.
NeNe Leakes is having quite the season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Despite bringing little to that table (in my humble opinion), she stays in the news. And maybe that’s her end game. Doing the bare minimum on the show and then staying in the lime light on her own terms.
So far this season, we haven’t seen much of her. But we’ve seen her all over her Instagram and YouTube channel, ripping her cast mates to shreds. NeNe has accused Kandi Burruss of never being number one at anything in her life. She’s called Eva Marcille boring. She even reignited an old beef with Sheree Whitfield. NeNe couldn’t even finish filming the reunion when ex-accomplice Yovanna Momplaisir showed up to tell her side of the Snake Gate story. And let’s face it, storming off made NeNe look guilty as hell for starting the whole thing, just like Yovanna was saying.
