Nene Leakes was a natural during her return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, leaving fans wondering if she’ll be back as a full time housewife next season. Nene has stayed busy since her premiere to reality TV and has really built up her resume in front of the cameras. For a while Nene was acting like she was too good for the Bravo reality show, but lately, but she’s been staying mum on the show in the press; alleging a return may be in her future.
Nene’s once estranged stepson Damian Leakes (who clearly needed to make some money) spoke to Radaronline about the future of his step-mother’s career, and spilled some dirt on how she hopes to be behind the camera pretty soon!
“I can’t say if she’s coming back or not, she’s got a lot going on,” Damian said (on Nene’s RHOA return). Adding, “She wants to put her production company out there on a bigger scale, maybe directing might be in the near future with her production company.” (NeNe behind the camera I like it!)
Damian also spills that despite the threat from her NBC Universal bosses to pull her new Fashion Police gig if she doesn’t come back to RHOA full time, Nene isn’t worried about working, she’s always got ideas in the works. First up; producing a reality show about her family.
“Gregg and the kids being able to do a reality show together, maybe a three-show series like I Dream of Nene…we’ve been playing with that idea,” Damian dished. “We think it would be a pretty cool show to see our interactions with our dad.”
While Nene wouldn’t be the star of this show, she of course would be in front of the camera as well. “We’d get Nene to pop up every now and then and show everyone we are a very fun family,” Damian says.
Nene’s family would probably need more of her “every now and then” to make the show successful. My thoughts are that Bravo would pick up the show, if Nene agreed to be more involved; and just like that another Nene Leakes spin-off is born.
Whether they start their reality TV careers or not Daiman says the Leakes clan has completely worked out all of their past issues. “We don’t get upset anymore, we are family,” he claims, adding, “We are all rooting for Nene.”
I’m not surprised that Nene plans on starting a production company, Bethenny recently did the same thing. Her step-son might be getting his spot on the show taken away if he keeps blabbing to the press, but it’s great to hear all is calm with her family, for now.
I’m rooting for Nene’s to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and if she does you can bet starting a production company with be her next story line.
Thoughts on what Damian had to say? Would you watch a reality show about Nene’s family? Do you want Nene back on The Real Housewives of Atlanta? What were your thoughts on this week’s episode?
