Uh oh, NeNe Leakes may be over the drama on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“Nene is really seriously contemplating more so than before if she’s going to be doing another season of Housewives. The show is really a job for her now and she doesn’t love it like she used to,” a source close to production reveals.
“She’s in total work mode and she’s just not sure if arguing with women she doesn’t like surrounding herself with other than for work purposes is worth the paycheck,” the source explains. “She’s thankful for what the show has done for her, but she’s unsure how much the stress is worth it. The fighting like that is just not something she wants to be a part of anymore.”
As fans saw in the RHOA mid-season trailer, NeNe and Kenya get into another heated exchange while on the cast trip to Greece.
“Please go to jail again,” Kenya told NeNe as NeNe clapped back, “You is a dumb a– b–tch.” Producers had to pull the RHOA veterans apart as the began to get in each other’s faces.
“She’s at a totally different place in her life now and this season was very different from her than seasons before due to certain relationships and the shifts they took,” the source continued.
However, Kenya isn’t the only one NeNe has beef with at the moment. At the end of season 11, fans saw NeNe’s friendship with Cynthia Bailey crash and burn. During season 12, NeNe accused Cynthia of saying “saying really horrible things” about her after hearing a secret audio recording.
Despite all the drama, NeNe hasn’t made any final decisions about season 13 of RHOA and beyond.
NeNe “hasn’t fully decided on anything yet, but she’s thinking differently than before,” the source concludes.
In fact, NeNe herself isn’t sure if season 12 will be her last or not.
“I don’t know…I really don’t know that. I never really know what I’m doing until the season is over and we talk about it,” NeNe told HollywoodLife in December 2019.
According to NeNe, she thinks “there’s a lot of things that aren’t fair,” that happened “behind the scenes things” and that fans “don’t get to see” on the show.
NeNe also was sure to point out that she will NOT let Kenya drive her off RHOA.
“No, [Kenya’s return] didn’t frustrate me. I don’t care to think about Kenya,” NeNe clarified. “I’m a pretty strong girl, and Kenya honestly cannot handle me.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
