NeNe Leakes Sounds Off On RHOA Season 12 Virtual Reunion Drama With Eva Marcille, Kandi Burruss And Kenya Moore! Plus NeNe Thinks The Show Needs “Big Shake-Up” For Season 13; Says “A Couple Of These Girls Need To Move To ‘Friend’ Or Move On Out”

NeNe Leakes is opening up about the drama that went down on The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 12 virtual reunion. "All they had was to focus on NeNe Leakes," she told Entertainment Tonight. "My check need to be doubled, thank you very much. My check need to be doubled, because the rest of you girls live a false life."

"You're paying all these girls to sit up and talk to me all day, can I get my raise, please?" she asks. "Thank you very much."

Leakes claims that for more than three hours the reunion more than three hours of questioning directed solely at her, which surprised the Bravo reality star because according to her, most of her co-stars shaded her for not being featured in many episodes this season.

"I may have missed episodes, but I did not miss one check -- and they teased me [in] every episode until I showed up," she explained. "So, for anybody that has anything to say about me not being in an episode, NeNe, don't forget to let them know, honey, you never missed a check and you were teased until you showed up. And if I wasn't needed, they wouldn't have had to tease me, honey. They couldn't have teased Eva and everybody tuned in. Who would have tuned in for that?"

Leakes then opened up about her reunion fights. "I felt like Eva was, you know, scratching to survive," NeNe says, reviewing her co-star's performance at the reunion. "It was like they told her in [a] meeting, like, I can see them now, sitting in the meeting with her and telling her, ‘You've got to step it up, Eva! You need to step it up! I mean, you're on thin ice over here!’ And I think she went in, like, ‘OK, I'm gonna step it up! Every time somebody says something, I'm gonna jump in!’ So, she jumped in every single time."

"If nothing else, she did her best to step up, but we slapped her down so many times," NeNe quips. "She should be tired! She should be tired."

She then reflects on facing off with Kandi Burruss. "I called Kandi [Burruss] 'number two,'" NeNe shares, implying that she is number one. "'You're number two, just want to make sure we remember to tell you that. You're number two, honey. Don't want to get confused.'"

"I can't really remember that much between Kandi and I," NeNe says. "She's so boring. So, I don't remember a whole lot that happened between us. I know she said whatever she said, ‘I'm embedded in your head,’ but honey, you can never be embedded in my head. You got to be way more entertaining to be embedded into anything over here. I'm actually embedded in her head and her friends’ head, because I'm all that they talk about. So, I don't remember it being that much."

"I think Kandi wanted some smoke with me, she created it herself," NeNe declares. "You got it, girl. Miss Boring. Snoozefest."

As far as her feud with Kenya Moore, NeNe says she’s "done" with Kenya after this season.

"I feel like, there's nowhere for me and Kenya to go," she told Entertainment Tonight. "Like, at this point, it looks stupid to continue to argue. I’ve extended olive branches to her, because -- as people love to say -- someone has got to be the bigger person, right? So, I've extended olive branches. I've apologized. I've agreed to move on. There's nothing else that I can do. I've done everything that was asked of me to do, I did."

"There's no reason for me to keep walking around arguing with her," she continues. "The only reason why she wants to have an argument with me is just to have her name lighted up with mine. My name is such a good name, you know she wants her name printed right next to mine, honey, OK!"

NeNe then shares why she shut her computer and walked away from the reunion.

"The whole reunion is just NeNe. What did you think about part one? Were they asking the questions to anyone besides NeNe? It's NeNe, honey. NeNe, NeNe... to the point where I said to Andy, 'Is there anybody else here, honey? Do you have any questions for anyone else here besides just NeNe?'" she shared. "Everybody is being paid a check, correct? So, NeNe shouldn't have to carry everybody on her back. Let some of these other girls work for their checks, Andy."

"Like, you have all these girls," she continues, "you decided that you wanted them in all your episodes then, please, make all of your girls work."

Andy also used his power to "mute" NeNe's microphone a couple of times during the reunion shoot, something she found confusing. "You want to mute me, but I'm the very person that you need to ask the question to," she says with a shrug.

Leakes adds that the series needs a "big shake-up" in order for it to move forward and not repeat the season that just ended.

"Like, a couple of these girls need to move to ‘friend’ or move on out, or wherever they’re gonna go, go on, whether I’m here or not. It doesn’t make a difference," she told Entertainment Tonight. "If I leave, I guess it'll give them some room to talk to each other. I don't know, but I feel like a peach-holder -- at least two peach-holders -- need to exit this season."
