NeNe Leakes Is Not Returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta
It’s the end of an era.
We’re sad to report that NeNe Leakes will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
The reality star announced on her YouTube channel that she will not be returning to the series for its upcoming 13th season.
“Thank you to all of you guys that have been showing me a lot of love and support as of late. I feel you, I hear you. I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation. There has been a lot of emotion flying on both sides,” she said in the video. “It has been hard, and I have made the very hard and difficult decision to not be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13.”
“It wasn’t an easy decision for me,” she continued. “It was hard. I started on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008. We took off like a rocket. I mean, we took off. You could have never told me that I would start on this little show and it still be going strong 13, 14 years later. And it is. I’m just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for Black ensemble reality shows to step up and be a part of what we all now love so much, reality TV.”
She ended her message by promising, “I will see you again. Real soon.”
