Nene Leakes fell out with several ladies while filming the last season of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' but for the upcoming season, Bravo has cast one of Nene's close friends so that she is not left out in the cold.

Gail ‘Yovanna’ Momplaisir is going to join the cast of 'RHOA' which is starting to filming in early June as a friend,” a source close to 'RHOA' told HollywoodLife.

“Everyone, including Nene, felt that Nene really needed someone in her corner and an alliance, so producers heard her and now Gail will be joining the ladies which Nene is really excited about,” the source added. “The two have been good friends for a while.” 

Last season, Nene had fallouts with Tanya Sam, Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss and is not on good turns with returning housewife, Kenya Moore. It is reported that Nene did not begin filming with the other ladies because of a pay dispute - but some hear that Nene was suspended at the beginning of filming because of her attack on Bravo staff last season.

Yovanna can be seen in the pics below.
