NeNe Leakes Would Return To ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Just ‘For The Fans’

NeNe Leakes knows her presence on The Real Housewives of Atlanta is missed and would be willing to return to the show just “for the fans.”

On July 4, Leakes was out shopping on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills when she was approached by a TMZ photographer. As Leakes was an OG on RHOA alongside Kim Zolciak-Biermann, the photog asked about the latter’s messy divorce from Kroy Biermann.

Leakes and Zolciak-Biermann helped make RHOA a staple within the Real Housewives universe with their years of feuding on the show. The two have been on-and-off friends in the years since they both exited the show.

Leakes did reach out to Kim amid her high-profile divorce. “I don’t know how she’s doing overall,” she told TMZ. “I just reached out to her because she reached out to me during a time when I was really going through something.”

leakes continued, “I would have to think that she’s taking it hard. It’s a divorce, it’s not easy.”

As to whether or not Leakes would be willing to return to RHOA, she expressed openness to the idea, considering how much the fans continue to demand it.

“I would come back for the fans,” LEAKES said. “Because the fans are the ones that love me.”

The Swagg Boutique owner noted how much fans loved her “position” on RHOA as the head queen in charge, and said she “would do anything” for them.

The photographer mentioned a recent episode of RHOA where a photo of the show’s original trailer was shown but she was missing from it. When asked about how “upset” fans were to see her purposely edited out of the show’s first trailer, Leakes said it was a decision made by higher-ups and not the show’s producers.

“I thought that was funny and I thought that was kind of crazy to do,” said LEAKES.
