Despite previous rumors that NeNe Leakes would not be part of season 12 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the reality TV star confirmed she is in fact going to appear on the fans’ small screens after all. Speculations said that she was suspended from RHOA.
One source tells HollywoodLife that she always planned to join the upcoming season but that ‘NeNe just wanted to make sure that she was being compensated fairly. She was not going to start filming without a deal that she was content with in place.’
They went on to dish that ‘It just took longer than expected, but she’s happy with the outcome. NeNe was always confident that a deal would be worked out.’
As for her beef with several of her co-stars, including Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams, the same source stated that ‘She’s not a fan of most of the other ladies right now, but she loves the show and the platform it creates for her and never wanted to walk away. It was always her plan to return and was confident it would happen. She was laughing at the reports saying she was suspended from filming as there was not any truth to any of that.’
Apparently, NeNe does not necessarily enjoy filming since for her it’s just a job.
Furthermore, she doesn’t like being around the negativity either since she’s feuding with Cynthia.
She cannot stand Kenya either and things are not going great with Porsha either!
But at least she and Kandi are doing better and she can lean on new cast member Yovonna Momplaisir so it’s safe to say filming is going to be more enjoyable in season 12 for NeNe.
