Despite reports, NeNe Leakes says she isn’t going anywhere and confirms that the rumors she was suspended from The Real Housewives of Atlanta are not true.
“I have never been suspended,” she told Vic Jagger on the Majic Radio Show this week. “And I am on season 12. Thank you very much.”
There have also been many rumors that NeNe has been shopping around her own spin-off show.
“If I’ve gotten a spinoff, they haven’t told me yet, and I need them to call me…If I had a spinoff, I’d be happily telling you.”
So what caused the reports that NeNe had been suspended from RHOA?
In an episode that aired in March, NeNe was shown ripping a cameraman’s shirt when he went into her closet, following Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams, after she told everyone not to go into her closet.
“Hell no,” NeNe had yelled to Kandi after she asked to see the closet. “My closet is not together.”
During the reunion, Porsha revealed that the altercation was more than just a ripped shirt, and said that NeNe pushed her and ripped her belt off, and accused NeNe of “choking up the producer.”
A rep for NeNe tells E! News that the reason for the delayed start had to do with active contract negotiations, and there was “absolutely no truth” to the rumors of a suspension.
