NeNe Leakes will NOT be returning to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’
In June, lovebscott.com exclusively reported that NeNe Leakes was essentially fired and wouldn’t be returning to the show.
Despite misleading reports of “negotiations” from NeNe’s camp and not-so-subtle social media outbursts we made it clear that NeNe wouldn’t be part of season 13.
Andy Cohen took to Instagram to confirm NeNe’s exit with a farewell letter.
Nene Leakes is an icon of the genre. She is a gif and catchphrase machine. In 11 years of #WWHL, Nene has been our most frequent guest, and she is always A BLAST. Nene nicknamed me “Buttercup” the first day we met, and still calls me that today. Through her whole run, she has always had a serious concern and drive to maintain the success and well-being of #RHOA. I am going to miss Nene on the show, but I’m hoping we work together again soon and will remain in each other’s orbits forever. XO, Buttercup. #Bloop #LowDownMonkeyWithAWig #CloseYourLegsToMarriedMen #WeSeeEachOthah #ISaidWhatISaid #TrumpCheck #ByeWig #SoNastyAndSoRude #Buttercup

Vindication is so so sweet — sweeter than a Georgia peach.
