Will she or won’t she?
For weeks now, rumors have been swirling about whether or not NeNe Leakes will be returning for season 13 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Filming for season 13 is set to being in July, but as of now, NeNe STILL hasn’t decided whether or not she’ll be signing her contract.
You may be wondering why?
Well, NeNe is holding off on making a decision because she’s focusing on her brand new show on E! with former Fashion Police co-host Brad Goreski.
The show loosely titled Glamsquad Showdown will be a comedic beauty competition show that will feature the best celebrity “glam squads.”
“Nene is definitely leaning towards finding ways she can do both her new E! show and RHOA,” a source close to production tells HollywoodLife.
As for those rumors about whether or not NeNe will be back for season 13 of RHOA, the source says that the RHOA OG thinks some of her co-stars are behind the rumors.
“Nene was discouraged when she heard that the rumors about her being fired were planted by someone from the show,” the source continued. “She’s sick of feeling sabotaged and manipulated to lose her cool since they know which buttons to push behind the scenes.”
The source says that NeNe has a lot to think about before signing her season 13 contract but is grateful for all of the support she has received from fans.
“She appreciated the support, and she’s definitely taking it into consideration as she continues discussions for next season,” the source said. “She didn’t take the bait, and they underestimated her relationship with Bravo when the network went to bat for her and publicly shot down the claims.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo for season 13 in late 2020 or early 2021.
