Kandi Burruss Admits She ‘Would Love’ NeNe Leakes To Return To RHOA For Season 13; Says “I Definitely Feel Like She Is A Major Part Of This Show”

Kandi Burruss recently revealed that she hopes NeNe Leakes decided to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the show's upcoming thirteenth season. “Listen, she and I, we’re like oil and water sometimes, but I definitely would love for her to be back,” Kandi told HollywoodLife.

“I definitely feel like she is a major part of this show,” Kandi said of Nene. “I feel like it would suck if she decided not to come back. I feel like why wouldn’t she come back, but I feel like ultimately that is up to her, so we’ll see…. I have not talked to Nene either and I do not know what her plans are, so I don’t know and honestly.”

The news comes after celebrity blogger Love B. Scott reported last week the following: “Pickup letters went out last Friday via emails to each of the ladies’ representatives and NeNe did not get one. Eva Marcille already announced she isn’t returning.”

However, NeNe’s manager Steven Grossman denied the report that his client has been fired from RHOA. “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,” he told HollywoodLife in a statement. “We are having on-going bigger picture conversations with NBC Universal and have not made any decisions regarding next season specifically. Any speculation or sources trying to create controversy by stating otherwise are incredibly inaccurate.” Steven added “Bloop” at the end of the statement, referencing NeNe’s infamous catchphrase. 

Bravo has also responded, noting there is “absolutely no truth” to the report that NeNe was fired.
