NeNe Leakes Denies Ever Being Suspended From Real Housewives of Atlanta & Says She Does NOT Have A Spin-Off: If I Had One, I’d Tell You!
NeNe Leakes is clearing up some things ahead of the new season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Fans of the show witnessed some of her explosive moments as she was accused of physically assaulting a cameraman and falling out with most of her co-stars and now former friends. Now, in a radio interview with MAJIC 102.3/92.7, Leakes has addressed a number of reports that have circulated about her since the 11th season wrapped earlier this year.
For starters, Leakes says she was not forced to sit out the first half of the upcoming 12th season because of her behavior. She said,
“I have never been suspended. I am on season 12, thank you very much. Stop reading the blogs.”
She also shut down rumors that she landed her own spinoff.
“No, that’s not true. If I’ve gotten a spinoff they haven’t told me yet, and I need them to tell me… I haven’t filmed a thing. I read that too. If I had a spinoff I would be happily telling you. We read a lot of stuff and then we start laughing about it… like, ‘I got a spinoff. That’s really nice that they’re saying I got a spinoff. It would be nice if I had one, but honestly I don’t have one.”
Anyone who tuned in to season 11 of the popular reality show knows that season 12 will be one for the books. Leakes had a falling out with her best friend Cynthia Bailey over speculation that Bailey set her up to film with arch nemesis and former cast member Kenya Moore.
Her friendships with Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss were also altered when Williams and Burruss went into her closet without her permission, causing her to pull a cameraman out of the area by his shirt. Williams and Burruss also hinted that Leakes got physical with Williams who was pregnant at the time.
Meanwhile, some of the ladies, including Moore, have been spotted filming for season 12.
