NeNe Leakes is the Queen of RHOA and is the only original housewife left on the franchise but it seems like she is less than happy being on the show.
NeNe is possibly the Housewife who’s used the Real Housewives platform the most successfully. NeNe has built quite the acting career since first appearing on RHOA, and her career in Hollywood seems to grow larger every year. Being away from RHOA seems to be her happy place at the moment so where does the reality show stand in her life.
“…Working on ‘Housewives’ can be very negative at times. I think that’s the way (the producers) position the show,” Leakes told NBC NY. “Every season they want someone to come for me. It’s tough.”
Nene is saying that season 6 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta was dark and toxic but she will decided to come back for season 7.“This past season was very dark and toxic; there was a lot of negativity,” NeNe previously told Life & Style magazine. “I just don’t want to work with so much negativity.”
NeNe says the show changed her.
“…The show has definitely damaged me to the point where I don’t want to make friends with new people. People who I open up, later on they turn on me once they get a raise on the show,” she told NBC. “I always think to myself, ‘God, these people will work for a $1.50 to do ANYTHING.’ I just can’t do it.”
All of this seems like NeNe is strategically planning her exit from RHOA. I just hope she doesn’t bite the hand that feeds her, it’s one thing to leave RHOA and move on but its another to talk badly about the show. It’s always important to leave on good terms because NeNe may need to come back to RHOA if her acting career ever dwindles.
What do you think of NeNe’s comments? Do you think NeNe is planning on leaving RHOA?
