In a world where rumors seem to be spreading like wildfire, the always outspoken NeNe Leakes and her team are committed to shutting one of those rumors down.
Point blank – she is not leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Indeed, while news began to spread that she had not been offered a spot on the season of the much-loved Bravo show, Leakes and her team say its not true at all. According to her manager, Bravo has not fired Leakes. In fact, she is still in talks to return for season 13 of the show.
“It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA,” Leakes’ manager, Steven Grossman tells People magazine. “Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be.”
“There is no truth to this story,” added a spokesperson from Bravo. “NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing.”
Of course, Leakes certainly wasn’t helping her cause when she ended up sending some tweets that seemed to signal trouble.
“You are NOT gonna get away with this! I promise,” she wrote in a tweet that has now been deleted, according to People.
Leakes also retweeted a follower’s tweet that said that she wouldn’t watch the show without the sometime actress on it.
Let’s not forget that back in January, even Leakes seemed unsure if she would end up returning to the show.
“I don’t know. I just don’t know,” Leakes told the outlet last month. “I go back and forth with it every day. I feel like it’s a big conversation I need to have with the network and with production. Because if they value their talent in some sort of way, then we need to talk. We need to come up with some sort of compromise here.”
However, the 52-year-old Tweeted a message to her fans on Thursday (June 18) saying, “I promise I’ll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love.”
I promise I’ll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love ❤️
