NeNe Leakes has a reputation for being a diva. Since getting her start on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, her career has been pretty impressive. Leakes has done Broadway, tried her hand at her own spin-offs, and now, Fashion Police. A lot of what she does is self-promotion, and she is good at it. Leakes has done promotional tours for her projects and appeared on various talk shows. Because of her strong personality, some people just aren’t sure how to handle her.
Working with NeNe Leakes is rumored to be difficult. Her personality is very strong, and she is often making herself the center of attention. With her job on Fashion Police, things are getting more and more tense. According to Radar Online, NeNe Leakes is wearing out her welcome on Fashion Police. Not only is she butting heads with Melissa Rivers, she is not getting along with any of the other co-hosts either. Kris Jenner was a special guest on the show last week, and she took over Leakes’ spot. That did not go over well, and Leakes was said to be very upset at the snub over a Kardashian. While there was some speculation about why the network hired Leakes to be on Fashion Police, no one anticipated the amount of drama such a personality would cause.
Not only is NeNe Leakes reportedly on the verge of being canned from the show, she is on the receiving end of an ultimatum. The network has decided to let Leakes continue to be part of Fashion Police if she returns to full-time status on The Real Housewives of Atlanta next season. The ratings are tanking without Leakes, and the minimum appearances she has made have boosted individual episodes for the series. Because NBC Universal owns both Bravo and the E! network, several of the deals can be crossed over. If Leakes opts not to return to reality television, she may be without a job.
It seems that NeNe Leakes has not only found drama on Fashion Police, but she also found it from her minimal appearances on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Right now, Leakes is under fire over comments she has made about Kim Fields’ husband. The entire situation is chaotic, and Leakes was thrown into the drama by returning. According to E! Online, NeNe Leakes is not planning to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta full-time. While she misses some of the women from the show, reality television is not where she wants her focus to be. It will be interesting to see what next season brings and whether or not Leakes finds herself a part of the show or not.
Right now, NeNe Leakes has a game plan for her life. She feels that if she goes back to reality television, it is a step backwards. The Real Housewives of Atlanta was a stepping stone for Leakes, and she wants to leave it behind and only move forward. With the conflicts on Fashion Police, fans are anticipating Leakes to be removed from the show before long. Working well with others has never really been her strong suit, and Melissa Rivers isn’t the one you want to have issues with on the show. While it was cruel to out Leakes in favor of Kris Jenner stepping in, Leakes is going to have to deal with stuff like that happening. After being in the business for several years, having a diva-like personality is not going to win anyone over. If NeNe Leakes can’t calm down and work with her Fashion Police co-stars and agree to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she will not be sticking around.
