Nene Leakes has made her return to “Real Housewives of Atlanta” after taking a season and a half off. The reality royalty is back to claim what’s her since she is the one who started it all.
Andy Cohen and Bravo have presented an impressive lineup of binge-worthy television over the years but out of all of the ‘Housewives’ franchises — Atlanta is the most-watched of the network and has provided its viewers with the funniest catchphrases.
The executives have always been accused of favoring Nene Leakes and they have good reason to. Mrs. Leakes is the Alpha and Omega of the Atlanta girls.
In an interview with US Weekly, Nene opens up about how the network came to her and asked to film her circle.
“I was the girl who they came to and interviewed and asked, ‘Who are your friends? We want to build this show. Who are your friends? We love you,” the star explained.
Since then, the 50-year-old has taken the opportunity she was given to make her a very rich you-know-what. She’s cashed Trump checks, acted in a Broadway play, and starred on prime time television.
Her influence of pop culture starts with her shady comments like ‘Bye wig’ and ‘So nasty and so rude’ and ends with some of her most iconic hairdos.
The show was definitely missing her presence and Leakes couldn’t stand by and allow it to continue without her which is why she came back.
The Glam-ma explained: “The show to me is like my baby and it’s really weird when I watch the show and I see all these new people sitting there and I’m not sitting there. Last season, it was very heavy and dark. When I was there, obviously we had drama, but I felt like we laughed.”
Now that she’s a part of the group again, she’s bringing the drama every week and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
