NeNe Leakes, “I Don’t Know If I’m Happy To Be A Full-Time Housewife”


One of the biggest controversies surrounding The Real Housewives right now is the fate of NeNe Leakes’ role on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. It started with rumors that Leakes was feuding with Andy Cohen after the RHOA reunion and now NeNe tells Naughty But Nice Rob she’s working out the details of her contract with the network.

“I will still work for Bravo. I’m happy to stay on. We just need to work out some things,” NeNe tells Rob. “I’m happy to do some things. I don’t know if I’m happy to be a full time Housewife.”

NeNe continues, “I wouldn’t say I’ve outgrown [the show] because people would want to throw eggs at me. I would just say that I have grown and I’m at a different place in my life.”

“I personally don’t want to go to work everyday where you have to be negative,” NeNe continues. “When I wake up every morning and I go off to be negative it just feels like it spills over into my regular life… you become what you work with.”

“I think people enjoy my realness, I think people enjoy how genuine I am,” Leakes adds. “They can relate to what I’m saying. I’m very direct. Some people appreciate the directness and some people don’t.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
