The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leaks has recently opened up about her tension with the other housewives these season and has hinted on various occasions on not coming back for a next. NeNe recently sat down with Meredith Vieira on the Meredith Vieira Show where she discusses how she really feels about the direction that the reality television show has taken since it’s premiere.
When asked if she is ready to leave the show, NeNe says, “I am at a point where I don’t know how much longer I can stay in this situation.”
NeNe was then asked if she’s ever felt embarrassed about her own behavior on screen and responds, “Absolutely. I’m embarrassed about a lot of things that happened. In the beginning when it started, I was having fun. I would have to say now I am not having as much fun. I feel like anybody, whether you’re a good person or not, if somebody pushes you up against the wall, you do have a breaking point.”
NeNe continues, “There are times when you will say and do things that you wish you hadn’t said and done. You don’t want to be seen that way. There are times when I do go home and wish I wasn’t seen that way because I am not that person every day. And so I do feel bad about certain things that happen on the show.”
She then opens up about her thoughts on RHOA saying, “I have to say reality TV has become very nasty. I think our show, in the beginning if you will, it was more about reading and being shady and no physical fighting. I think as of late, it has become very nasty, because I feel like the networks have to compete with one another. There are some shows that are physically fighting, drinking, and I think they have to now compete.”
Although she feels networks have to compete, NeNe assures that she is never told to increase the drama saying, “I’m not being encouraged to drink or to fight, but I do feel the pressure of turning it up.”
