NeNe Leakes has announced her glorious return to the Bravo franchise that launched her career. “It’s been a long process but we’ve finally reached an agreement! All Hail the Queen for season 10 of #RHOA @bravotv #thethreatisback,” she declared on Instagram.
Leakes was a full-time cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta from its inaugural season to its seventh. After quitting that season, she briefly appeared as a guest for Season 8.
Leakes will reunite with her former frenemy Kim Zolciak-Biermann for the reality show’s milestone tenth season. With exception to a cameo during Season 9, Kim hasn’t appeared on RHOA since Season 5. Rumor has it, Leakes will be a full-time housewife, while Kim will only be a friend of the housewives.
I love that the OGs are back for Season 10. Equally as satisfying is the fact Phaedra Parks will no longer be part of the show. Was never a fan of Shady Phae Phae. Reportedly though, she’ll film one final scene with Porsha Williams to tie up loose ends.
In other RHOA-related news, after enduring a horrible season, Bravo has rewarded Kandi Burruss with another spinoff. This time, the series will chronicle the reunion of her girl group, Xscape, as they prepare for their first performance in over 20 years.
Excited that NeNe is back? Thoughts on Phaedra leaving? Weigh in below.
