The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes QUITS after 7 years

30 Jun 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

NeNe Leakes is leaving.

On Monday, Leakes told People Magazine that she and her husband, Greg Leakes, went back and forth on whether she should do the eighth season of the show, but ultimately decided it was time to move on. “…My contract is up, and I just think this is the right time,” Leakes told People. “This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.” Leakes said she is taking the opportunity to focus on a new primetime TV show that she is filming with a “big legend,” though she did not reveal who the legend is, according to People.

In March, Bravo announced that Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann, a former RHOA star, were teaming up for a spinoff show, NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches. A former stripper, she has written a book, launched a clothing line, performed on Broadway, appeared both “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Dancing With the Stars” and acted in NBC’s “The New Normal” and Fox’s “Glee.” She divorced and remarried the same person. Leakes was the star and often in the middle of the action and fights. “There were times when I was a target,” she says. “I won’t miss the negativity.” Her departure also might save Claudia Jordan, who has been grappling with rumors she might be leaving the show after just one season or demoted to part-time status. (Reality is the producers won’t be making a final decision until after the cameras begin rolling next month.) The show remains Bravo’s most popular “Real Housewives” franchise, even though ratings fell off season seven after peaking season six.
