NeNe Leakes Hasn’t Filmed Yet For Real Housewives of Atlanta, Allegedly Filming Her Own Spinoff
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans know season 11 was a doozy for NeNe Leakes. After a tumultuous season showcasing “closet-gate” with Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss, marital issues with Gregg Leakes following his cancer diagnosis, and the end of her friendship with Cynthia Bailey – rumors swirled that she wouldn’t be returning to the show for season 12.
However, a rep for the OG peach is shutting down those rumors. A statement reads:
“I can say with authority that there is absolutely no truth to this. The only reason why she’s not currently shooting is because she is still in active negotiations with her contract.”
But, a week into filming, NeNe Leakes has, reportedly, not started filming with the other girls yet. A source told Love B. Scott that NeNe has been placed on a suspension of sorts for violently attacking the cameraman on duty for the “closet-gate” episode. They said:
“For that reason, in addition to NeNe’s ‘bad attitude’ in dealing with producers and execs behind the scenes, sources tell LoveBScott.com that NeNe has been forced to ‘sit out’ for at least the first part of the season — maybe longer — as the ladies begin filming.”

Rumors speculate that she’s not letting “Housewives” stop her flow. Sources tell Bossip that NeNe is filming a “Vanderpump Rules”-esque spinoff show about Swagg Boutique’s three locations. The source dished:
“The show will be like Lisa Vanderpump’s famed ‘Vanderpump Rules’ and follow NeNe’s sales associates as they ‘work, party and deal with drama.'”
Would you watch a spinoff about Swagg Boutique? Let us know in the comments.
