NeNe Leakes is not expected to come back to The Real Housewives of Atlanta after the death of her husband Gregg Leakes, according to a new report.
Hollywood Life reports that according to a source, there’s “no way” Leakes will decide to return to the popular Bravo series. Without Leakes, the show is now facing a conundrum regarding talent since Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey are not returning either.
The source said that while Bailey is reportedly “open to returning again the future,” there’s “no way that NeNe will ever be back on that show after the way things were left between the network and her.” The source went on to say that that rumors of Leakes possibly returning “are completely false” and that there “have not been any conversations for her to appear.” Bravo, the source said, wants “different ladies with a different vibe.”
Williams recently revealed that she is leaving the series after 10 years. On Instagram, she wrote how she is ready to face the “next chapter” of her life.
“This was a difficult decision to not only make, but also come to terms with. It’s one I have put a lot of thought into and because of that, I know it’s the right one,” she said. “I have so much love and endless gratitude for my Bravo family and supporters. You’ve made the past decade a truly special one. One where I’ve dealt with unbelievable highs and unbelievable lows, and I can honestly say I would not have made it through some of them without the unconditional love and support I have gotten from all of you.”
