Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes is making news again. She's claiming that fellow housewives Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burress formed an "alliance" against her.

Alliances are mostly used on survivor-type reality shows, not in shows like Bravo's Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

Nene told the interviewer, "Kandi and Cynthia formed an alliance . . . because together they are strong and separate they are weak. They need each other"

Nene continued, "Also their storylines are not that strong. They need each other to come up with something [interesting]."

While forming "alliances" 

Luckily for Nene, the alliance may be coming apart. According to multiple sources at Bravo - it does not appear that Cynthia Bailey will be returning next season.

As MTO News reported last month, Cynthia was NOT asked to return next season, unlike most of the other cast members. While Bravo has not made a final decision as to Cynthia's status on the show - it doesn't look good for her.

According to Ebony Mag, early this month Cynthia Bailey appeared on Kandi Burruss‘ YouTube series Speak On It, where she addressed lying to NeNe Leakes about intentionally inviting her on-again off-again nemesis, Kenya Moore, to a filmed event that aired during the Season 11 finale of their reality show.

According to Bailey, Moore, a former RHOA cast member, was invited to her event but declined because she knew Bravo cameras would be present and she wouldn’t be paid for her appearance.

Burruss said she attempted to get Moore to show up despite her original plans not to. “We’ve all been invested in her finding love and her eventually having her baby that she always wanted. It did not work out for her to be on the season,” she said. “I just felt like we were kind of cheating the fans for them not being able to at least being able to see her pregnant.”

Despite her efforts, Burruss said she was unaware of Moore’s decision to come until seconds before she arrived. “At the end of the day, I knew that she possibly might be coming but I did not share that with Cynthia.”
