Is NeNe Leakes Planning To Leave ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta?’

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?

    I think this is Nene’s last season. I’m sure the show will go on, but it will be very different. Only time will tell!

    I think the show will survive without Nene. She thinks it is boring and as a viewer I think she is boring to the show. She is just trying to hard and the other ladies are rising up with their issues and sure it’s not super fabulous however it is better to see the truth of the other ladies and what happens in their lives. Nene shows herself to much in a negative way. The thing I use to like about her was that she was fun and she carried herself in a way as the other ladies did. Yes they had issues and they voiced them but it wasn’t all about trashing them and pointing the finger at certain ones who you feel is not how a friend should act ect. Nene is guilty of this over and over and over, and god forbid if you disagree with her then all hell breaks loose. She may do things on the show for ratings but when people see the change in her so much to the point of no longer being like these women and believing you are above them just means that you Nene have nothing else to offer. It isn’t that the ladies of this show have changed and that quite possibly your fame has you believing your better then them and that is why you have nothing no longer to offer to the group. I just know as a viewer that you have changed so much from when you first started to now even down to your laugh which I might ad is fake. You even lost that and changed it up for something that you believe sounds better and the way you use your words now don’t even sound real yet again fake. I am one of those people who believe that you are an actress who has it in you to be real but believes that acting like someone who mix and mingle with the rich folk makes you feel like your a part of them . That being said I find that really sad. I also think that you have lost your shine on the show because of this and that is why the other ladies stand out more than you do. Practice what you preach cause lord knows you got a lot to say but never one to hear what your saying. When you began getting noticed on the show it was because that was the real Nene, Seriously the commercials are more interesting now when you enter the room.

    What happened to this person? I haven’t watched the show in years and happened to be home sick and watched. I’m floored she isn’t even close to the person she was four or five years ago……who the hell does she thinks she is?!?! That head is going to pop!

    I think that RHOA has seen it’s day. Nene needs to go to. Hope she does not get another show. She is loud and boisterous. She has nothing to offer. She is extremely narcissistic. She is sickening how she touts off about being rich. She does not come from wealth. She is not old money. She really has nothing to offer except to show off. Take Gregg and her kids with her.

    • momma bully

      she does enjoy showing off in a belittling way yes. She gets along well with people who jump when she says jump and those people are ones such as Gregg ect. But when you have an opinion of your own then she feels not as large as life as she thinks she is and is threatened and you become someone who is not her friend ect. Her and Gregg will make it as long as he thinks that the ground she walk on is perfect especially since she has probably told him how she owns it ha ha ha (her fake laugh) and he should be lucky that she is allowing him to walk on it! She most definitely has changed!!!!!!!!!!!

  • That’s My Story

    Personally speaking, If we could buy NeNe for what she is truly worth, and sell her for what she believes she is worth, we would all be rich!!!! NeNe FORGOT where she came from, and wants the reality world to think she was always “MONEY”. Personally speaking again, I find it difficult to watch NeNe give her rendition of a stellar performance. I hate her form of acting!!! If NeNe leaves the RHOA, it will be just like it was when Kim Z left, Lisa Woo left, DeShaun left and Sheree….EVERYONE is expendable. NeNe DOES NOT make the show!

    • momma bully

      Absolutely well said! I wonder if she ever reads these post or if she does would she ever believe that the public her “viewers” see the change in her and how it is so very clear that an act is an act is an act. She always says to Andy that they need to talk about who needs to leave, as though she runs the show, lol.

  • Treacle234

    Come on now the only job NeNe has at the moment in RHOA. New normal got cancelled and Glee is ending after this season. Where will she featured in next? If she does get a reality tv show, what would it be about……her life is not that interesting especially since she is not in Hollywood acting.

  • Coletha Woodson

    No! Pleeese. No more “celeb” talk shows. NeNe do a movie or series. Revive “Get Christie Love” as a movie. NeNe would be great. Am I right, old school blk ppl?

  • Sasha

    The show is a lil boring but if anybody gets a talk show or a spin off I won’t watch to much overexposer. I didn’t watch I dream of nene.

  • Chas

    I love Nene and the show but I must admit she has an “I’ve outgrown this” vibe.

  • Tee Elyse

    If Bethanny can get a talk show, NeNe definitely can! She IS RHOA!!!!

  • Kimberly Reese

    NeNe is the star of the show.So she needs to stay

  • BabyBlue

    I must agree that this new season is boring. Nothing is really new. Apollo and Pheadras situation is kinda a repeat on when they first got on the show. People are talking about their relationship and trying to figure them out. Kandis mother is still having issues of who she dates which is a repeat of her first season on the show. Cynthia and Peter having financial troubles which is a repeat of their first season. Kenya is still crazy from her first season. Porsha is still “married” with crusty Kordell and Nene is still funny with her punch lines. Nobody is really displaying growth. It’s the same stuff being repeated. I’m bored.
