NeNe Leakes has been filming The Real Housewives of Atlanta for all the seasons that have been created for the Atlanta franchise, but she is always saying that she doesn’t want to deal with the drama. NeNe has threatened to quit several times, and she has been using the platform to start a career in Hollywood that could have been her springboard into other television gigs.
But NeNe keeps returning to the drama-filled reality show produced by Bravo. Leakes got one of the biggest paychecks last season. It was rumored to be close to $1 million for one season of filming. But with that large paycheck came broken friendships with both Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore.
According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report, NeNe Leakes is now revealing why she keeps going back to the show. “Over the years, I feel I have grown for the best,” NeNe Leakes has said about her experiences on the show. “I have grown as an adult. I am older and wiser. I know so much more now that I didn’t know when I came into this world. I feel I have gotten better. I feel my life has changed for the better.”
Of course, NeNe Leakes has grown over the various seasons, especially when it comes to her personal relationship with her husband. The two got a divorce and spent some time apart, before realizing that they needed to be together again. They married in a Bravo special and NeNe Leakes returned to the show a brand new person.
But NeNe’s story line this past season has been about her broken friendship with Cynthia. During the reunion, Leakes pointed out that some things were not meant to be fixed, no matter how much they hurt. But NeNe is now revealing that things may not be that bad after all.
“I think people misunderstand,” NeNe has revealed about her feud with co-star Cynthia Bailey. “I don’t go out a lot. I am very private. I am really chill. I understand why the girls on the show are made to come after me. I am the original.” It sounds like she doesn’t want to take the blame for things falling apart.
However, NeNe Leakes is sending out some odd messages on her social media account. Just this week, she revealed that she was working with someone evil, which could be both Cynthia and Kenya. She has talked about her co-stars trying to sabotage her career, according to The Inquisitr.

Leakes may still be pursuing her career in Hollywood, but she is currently filming the newest season of the show. Perhaps she is hoping that this season can teach her a few things about strong friendships and leaving people behind.
