It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday! Maybe for Boyz II Men, but not for reality superstar Nene Leakes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Leakes has had her ups and downs on the show, but during Season 11, Leakes seemed to have an issue with all of her fellow cast mates. After it appeared that the ladies were finally getting along, Leakes became infuriated with everyone, including Cynthia Bailey, Eva Marcille, Porsha Williams, and Kandi Burruss after Bailey invited Leakes’ rival Kenya Moore to Bailey’s Seagram’s Escapes peach bellini launch party without telling Leakes.
In an interview with TooFab, Burruss stated: “From what I can tell, she’s upset because we had invited Kenya [Moore] to Cynthia [Bailey]’s party, and Cynthia didn’t give her a heads-up. She felt like that was an attack against her, which it wasn’t,” Burruss said.
The reunion drifted Leakes further from her friends and cast mates once the situation was brought up again. Now, many are wondering whether or not Leakes is officially done with “RHOA.” Leakes posted a photo via Instagram three days ago in a car wearing a white tank top while sticking her tongue out and throwing up the peace sign. Leakes’ post fired up speculation on if she was done with the show or leaving her husband Gregg, who has beaten colon cancer and with whom she also has had her fair share of ups and downs.
Leakes posted the picture with the caption “Say what now? Nawwww Happiness over everything #byeforever#putsomerespekonmyname,” garnering more than 40,000 likes.
Fans didn’t hesitate to give their thoughts on her post.
“Oh lawd is NeNe leaving the show or Gregg. 🤦🏽♀️😫”
@SingleladiesAtlanta feels if Leakes is leaving, it will be better for her and Gregg. “🍑🍑🍑🍑Thank God Gregg is better. I prayed for him. I lost my Daddy to cancer, and I took care of him to his last breath. He fought for our country, and he fought for his family. Nobody understands the Fight until you’re in it 💪🏽Love you #SwaggedOutBlessings #MySista.🍑”
@mzjmbbazz82711 told Leakes that she is forever a fan and to do “What you think is best for you just keep us posted.”
“Braxton Family Values” outspoken reality star and host Tamar Braxton also gave Leakes several hand claps with hearts and kisses supporting her decision in whatever she decides to do.
However, some commentators feel that Leakes isn’t leaving the show because she enjoys the check too much.
“She is not leaving the show y’all .. she already clarified that ..who would quit making 2.85 mill.. not this white v neck wearing girl”
“Leaving the show or leaving Gregg? I hope it’s neither one.”
“She has outgrown the show anyway… her presence is bigger than that stage.”
Leakes last left the show following season 7 in 2015, after many arguments and drama were centered on her. When she first exited “RHOA” she said that a huge weight had “been lifted off of [her] shoulders.” Leakes returned for season 10 for the sake of her fans, she claimed. Maybe Leakes will leave again to get away from the drama that always seems to find her on the show.
