Porsha Williams may be eager for Nene Leakes to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta -- but the rest of the ladies could not care less.
“The other ladies don’t care either way if NeNe returns or not. They’re not surprised that NeNe hasn’t signed her contract yet because she does this every season,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “Last year she wasn’t in the first few episodes because she refused to sign her contract. They know NeNe is NeNe. They know she doesn’t make or break the show and feel it’ll go on successfully with or without her in it,” they concluded.
During the reunion, Nene caught flack from all of the other housewives except for Porsha and Marlo Hampton, who both had her back.
Last week, her manager issued a statement denying rumors that she had been fired from the show.
“It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA. Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be," the rep said.
