NeNe Leakes has confirmed that she will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta as a full-time cast member for the eighth season. There have been many discussions as to why she really left and what she will do next, but one thing she can confirm is if there is anyone from the show she will miss.
In an interview with People Magazine, NeNe discussed what she will most from being on the show for so long.
“I’ll miss some of the laughs that I’ve had on the show over the years,” NeNe said.
Will she miss any of her former costars?
“I don’t know if there’s anyone in particular that I’ll miss,” NeNe revealed.
This response may be surprising to viewers as NeNe has made friends on the show, despite the drama. Specifically, on this past season, NeNe became even closer with Porsha Williams and started a close friendship with Phaedra Parks as her husband Apollo began his prison sentence.
Even though NeNe does not seem too torn up about moving on from her former costars, she does admit that this was not an easy decision to make since she has been on for so long.
“It’s been bittersweet for me,” NeNe said. “I’ve been there since the very beginning. When I started, my youngest son was in third grade, now he’s in the 11th!”
Are you surprised to hear that NeNe will not miss any of the ladies from RHOA?
