NeNe Leakes shocked her fans when she announced over the summer that she would not be returning for season 8 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe has had her schedule backed up with plenty of new projects, but this week she revealed that a return to her hit show isn’t out of the question.
NeNe told Access Hollywood that she’d entertain an offer to move to a new city in the Real Housewives franchise. “I would love to join the Beverly Hills ‘Housewives.’ I’d be the only brown girl there. [I’d love] to fight those girls a little bit. They need a brown girl, I promise. I’d love to do it.”
While she might be kidding about a Beverly Hills move, she isn’t ruling out a return to her Atlanta roots. “I may go back some day.”
As for her reasons for leaving, NeNe is adamant that it wasn’t not about the money. “Honey, money ain’t everything, OK? I was the only original there, and it was the end of my contract. I was offered Season 8, to come back, and it was my decision.” She added, “They offered me nice money, and I made nice money being on the show. So it was not about money. Honestly, I’m not that girl. I’ve turned down lots of good money many of times. It’s about happiness for me.”
Are you excited about the newbies coming up on the new season? Will you miss NeNe?
