NeNe Leakes Drives A Hard Bargain: Will She Return To ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Again?

NeNe Leakes does a great job of keeping things interesting on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The idea of another season without NeNe shocks everyone. There is some talk whether or not NeNe will be back next season. Radar Online shared whether NeNe will return next season or not and what they might have to do to get her to stick around. Of course, NeNe on the show comes along with a big paycheck. The thing is the ratings that NeNe Leakes brings in makes her paycheck worth it to Bravo.

A source shared that NeNe Leakes has a lot of production stuff going on right now and so she wants a lot to come back full-time. During Season 8, she was only on the show part-time, but more NeNe means more drama. Everyone knows that NeNe will do whatever it takes to bring in the ratings. The source went on to share that NeNe knows that her money comes from Bravo and of course, she wants that paycheck. That could be enough to get NeNe to stick around as long as the show wants her.

It has been revealed that NeNe Leakes is being paid $2 million a season, which is a pretty big paycheck for reality television. The source went on to share the details about how NeNe knows how to do the right thing. She will do what she can to get the good paycheck and the ratings.

“NeNe is not dumb. She does exactly what needs to be done on RHOA. She is not afraid to fight with anyone and her take on every story is what the fans want. No one cares about the random ladies on the show. NeNe is the one they tune in to watch. So she will be back, earning the big bucks and laughing all the way to the bank.”

Reality Tea shared that NeNe Leakes just started a new business venture and now has her own app. A lot of other celebrities, such as the Kardashians, have their own apps as well. The new app is called Nemoji-naturally. It is not just an emoji app, though. NeNe Leakes’ new app is also a game. One part of it is a dressing room where you can dress up NeNe in clothes and even pick her hairstyles. It is already available for iPhone, but for Android, you are going to have to wait another month or so before the app is out.

NeNe is always staying busy and finding new things to do. There has been a lot of talk about her doing a reality show with Kim Zolciak as well. The two had their issues, but then they turned out to be great friends. If this show happens, it will have NeNe and Kim out back on the road together. This would be a hilarious show, but it was canceled and then they said it might happen again so nobody seems to know for sure.

If NeNe Leakes didn’t return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the show would go on fine. They have done it without her before, but the idea of NeNe not being there is something some fans just wouldn’t be okay with at all. NeNe is great for ratings, and everyone knows it. It sounds like NeNe will be around for at least one more season and hopefully more.
