Just a few months ago, I spilled the tea about Leakes not being ‘asked back’ to the show this season (click HERE if you missed that). Recently, Nene hit the tweets to confirm that she’s not returning this season, and also revealed that two of her fellow veteran ‘housewives’ will be there to pick up the slack.
Yesterday, after throwing a series of her customary shady tweets, Nene was presented with a direct question about her status on the show.
A fan sent a morning tweet to Leakes stating that RHOA would go down in flames without her, whereas Nene replied ‘I wish the single housewives of ATL the best’
Another follower then inquired if Nene’s response indicated that she would not be coming back, to which the fan favorite responded: ‘I am NOT on season 9.’
As previously reported, Leakes and Bravo had been at a stand still regarding contractural negotiations and producers proceeded with filming a few months back without her.
Nene reiterates via twitter that it wasn’t her decision to leave the show, stating ‘I wasn’t asked 2b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree and I think Kim Z.’
No word yet on if the two veteran housewives are ‘friends’ of the show or if they will be holding a peach, but there is at least one confirmed newbie, Lena Chenier, who will reportedly be tying the knot to her longtime R&B boyfriend on the show.
Meanwhile, Nene has something else up her sleeve…
What do you think of Nene’s casting revelations?
Will she be missed on season 9?
