It seems that even the most popular reality shows have an expiration date and judging by some recent tweets sent out by NeNe Leakes, Real Housewives of Atlanta may be taking the Basketball Wives route. During last night’s episode, the 45-year-old Glee star agreed with fans who complained over how “boring” the episode was and even hinted that a spin-off show is in the works.
NeNe’s desire for a spin-off isn’t all that surprising, just last year she told the New York Post that she would eventually depart from the Bravo franchise.
“At some point I do [plan to leave RHOA]. I love the acting world. So at some point…I can’t continue to be a Housewife. At some point, I have to back out,” she said.
She also expressed a desire to host her on talk show.
“I would keep it real for the whole hour! Whatever the topic is, I feel I could talk about anything. Politics, men, money, shoes . . . anything. I wouldn’t want to do a ‘Maury Povich’ show. Baby daddy! Who’s your daddy? Who’s your mama? I wouldn’t want to do that kind of show.”
“It’s just a matter of time. I am here now, because I am supposed to be here. And I guess when it is my time to cross over there, I will be over there. I am not religious, but I am spiritual, honey. My day is coming!”
It looks like that day may be coming sooner than later. It’s pretty difficult to imagine RHOA without NeNe Leakes.
Do you think the show could survive without her?
