NeNe Leakes’ peach is no longer in harvest and fans are dying to know the details of what happened! 

Back in September, Leakes announced her departure from the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which had fans shocked. She said even though she doesn’t have plans on returning to the franchise, she still would like to have a conversation with Bravo.

“I want fair treatment. I deserve fair treatment. I haven’t done anything that no one else has  done there or haven’t done there or even worse…I am just as confused as you are,” she said emotionally on the Tamron Hall Show. Leakes then continued to say she doesn’t want to be on the show again, but she would like to have a voice within the network to prevent issues similar to hers happening again to someone else. 

“A seat at the table. I wouldn’t want another young woman to experience or go through the things that I have had to deal with over the years,” she said. 

She took to social media and posted these memes that may be hinting toward the treatment she’s been facing with the network and Andy Cohen.

In the midst of all the drama, Leakes said the negotiation process was long and she’s had enough, even though it’s hard for her to walk away.

“I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation. There’s been a lot of emotion flying from both sides, it has been hard, and I have made the very hard and difficult decision to not be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13,” she said on her YouTube channel. 

Fans on social media have been wondering if Leakes would be closing her reality television chapter, but she has yet to confirm or deny those claims. However, on ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’, Wendy Williams said she doesn’t think Leakes getting her own spinoff show would be something people would want to watch. 

“Is there going to be like Greg and NeNe and you’re going to give them another reality show? That’s boring. How about NeNe being a grandmother? That’s boring. Ya know, NeNe with her own kids? That’s boring. NeNe trying to figure out Hollywood? That’s boring,” she said. 

Now, this may not come as a surprise to fans of Leakes because she’s already expressed her disdain for Williams revealing a private conversation on her talk show as well as her sharing her true feelings about Leakes’ resignation with Cohen on his late night show.
