NeNe Leakes

Entrepreneur NeNe Leakes announced her long-awaited return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV series yesterday. The 49-year-old mother-of-2 made the announcement on her Instagram page late Wednesday.

Leakes returns to the reality TV series that she helped create. She sat out all of season 8 to pursue other television opportunities.

“It’s been a long process but we’ve finally reached an agreement!” Leakes wrote, referring to bitter negotiations with Bravo TV. “All Hail the Queen for season 10 of #RHOA @bravotv #thethreatisback”.

“Got my eyes closed thinking bout how imma get you bitches together! Let’s go #RHOA #thethreatisback #Queen,” she wrote under a heavily Photoshopped image of herself wearing a crown and hoisting a peach atop a champagne glass.

Leakes joins fellow original RHOA cast member Kim Zolciak who is returning to the series in a limited capacity because she has her own reality TV show ratings to worry about.

Leakes will be eligible for an AARP card when she turns 50 on December 13.

    Is This A Surprise? Everytime She Ventures Out On One Of Her New Endeavors And Fail She Runs Right Back To Bravo. #ThirstyForThatCheck

  • ~~eb

    TACKY, plain and simple.

  • CookieMobster

    She looks like a tranny.

  • NeverSurprised

    These tummy tuck belly buttons really should become more refined. In that first pic, there appears to be about 2 feet of space between her belly button and her crotch. Very strange looking.

  • zeta4life

    THAT’S IT!!!…LMAO!!! *couldn’t put my finger on it* thanks

  • zeta4life

    It’s something how some of the “rea-lie-ty” stars whom where so above the drama after they got a little shine, not realizing the gigs that u got was because you were on these shows, I look at her and Evelyn with a side-eye and eye roll…I think they need to recast the whole show, and I haven’t watched since season 3

  • zeta4life

    Just what I was saying above…I hope her storyline ain’t about anymore acting, because it seems like all that has dried up AFTER she left RHOA

  • zeta4life

    is her “naval” off centered??? QTNA

  • zeta4life

    sandra , u know she done stared getting all the AARP mail…hell I can’t wait until I get mine in September…LOL!!!

  • Torae

    She wasn’t missed nor was Kim and both of them and their plastic surgery look a MESS…

  • SuperScooper1

    THIS! I won’t be watching. Seriously, can’t they just make Marlo a cast member? She’s allegedly got a checkered past, but a number of cast members do AND she’s actually fabulous.

  • Renee26

    Harpo who dis woman??

  • Renee26

    The last couple of seasons that she was on there she only made cameo appearances because she thought she was too good to be around the other ladies…they stupid for wasting money to bring her back and she isn’t even going to get much camera action

  • Renee26

    Her nose is going to fall off like MJ’s did if she keeps this up

  • ShelbyMoore

    True! But, is something fishy about her belly button? Isn’t your pants button usually under your belly button? Why is her belly button to the side of the middle of her body? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/979b15fc5b425f6bcc1c28cd8e092525fbc55f0bc4f3dcc9f2dde6e6e674eaf6.gif

  • Lady_Elle

    Now we know where Nene spent her paychecks…
    She has had a lot of work done!
    Looking good Nene!!!

  • free

    i don’t understand how they can bring these two back and not marlo.

  • free

    when the coins run out….

  • Teresa Autrey

    Her belly button is crooked???

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Because Marlo is very violent and called gay men “fags”. She offended an ENTIRE network. That heaux will NEVA (cardi b voice) get a ?.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    These reality chicks kill me tryna act like they’re so above the reality show thing, then when they realize they cannot do anything else they come crawling back. Joseline Hernandez feeling herself because she hosted The Real for a week, Erica Mena thougt Bow Wow would marry her, Nene Leakes really thought she was an “actress”. Kim Zolziack husband is unemployed. Lol These people are funny.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Exactly

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Yep. She can’t act for shyyt.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    She should call her plastic surgeon and demand a refund.

  • Yoni7

    Cardi B became a rapper.
    Olivia thought she was a singer.
    Golden Brooks, Countess Vaughn and Elise Neal were actors.
    Disclaimer: Not wishing on anybody’s downfall….
    But I agree.

  • A-way29

    The last thing we need. Time her and company to dumb down society. We gotta do better and demand better

  • SuperScooper1

    Wow…But they say they like “drama.” I think it’s because (whatever her issues) they don’t want to show a truly fabulous Black woman on TV. i.e. House paid for, living well, actual taste and style, etc. Marlo is not the best example of that, but there are women like that who would welcome the extra coins.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Girrl i forgot all about Olivia. She can actually sing though idk why she’s not more successful.

  • Malcom Flex

    The pictures are disgusting enough I’m so happy I don’t watch that crap.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    True, drama is great for ratings but honestly if i were a producer, I’d be intimidated to put someone like Marlo on because she has a history of violence. The other ladies may fuss and argue, but Marlo would REALLY hurt someone if provoked.

  • Tee Tee

    Sandra I swear I love your shade lmao at;
    ” she wrote under a heavily Photoshopped image of herself wearing a crown and hoisting a peach atop a champagne glass.”
    You are such a mess!

  • lil goodie

    The shade was her being ready for her AARP card…..

  • Kanyade

    The photoshop is so real in that top image.

  • SuperScooper1

    Good point…

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Thanks??

  • Peter Piper ATL

    LOL…NeNe, honey, you’re seconds away from that 15 minute window closing up. Girl, you got to earn a chunk of loot–lots more than you EVER would have made on that stripper pole–and you made yourself famous. But let the narcissism go darling because even though you now look like a 34 year old tranny, you are in fact a 50 year old moose with a pricey wiglet sitting up top of your head. You are known for being a loud mouthed, ignorant woman. That’s your shtick. You ain’t Halle or Oprah or Olivia or Viola dear.

    And you won’t ever be Cisely or Diahann, for sure.

    And that body looks like material somebody salvaged from an old mobile home, rusty bits and all.

    And this show needs to be canceled. There is absolutely no reason it should be on the air, other than maybe the folks who watch this mess on Sunday night only have basic cable. When you think about it, the show could have ended its run after the nonsense with Phaedra because nobody cares if Porsha and Kandi become friends again. Its TV folks.

    I think producers realize this show is nearing its end run so they brought back Ms. Moosey to try and see if they can squeeze another 2 or 3 seasons out of this ghastly spectacle.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Damn they got Nene up there looking all manly or should I say more manly than usual.
    But anything for a paycheck, right?

  • AListDiva29

    For how much confidence she displays with her attitude, she needs to match it with her self esteem, because she’s starting to look cartoonish (i.e. Tamar) with all that plastic surgery!

  • Rayne

    I can’t wait!

  • Yoni7

    I liked her voice as well and I thought she was cute too. She looked like she could be the sister of Ciara and daughter of Wanda Sykes. She was cute nonetheless. I wonder what she’s up to these days.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Who’s more manly Nene, Wendy or Brucie (Jenner)???

  • 4RGSpot

    ===================================================cold Cold COLD!!!! LOLLOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!! You dragged her backwards and forwards!!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • imright

    Evelyn Lozada too ???

  • Quitedeliteful

    NeNe can’t be happy that she’s coming back to this mess and the girls still on the show can’t be happy that she’s coming back to this mess…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Money must be getting low for NeNe. I wonder how her made for TV clothing line is doing on HSN…

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • Pooh

    i hear really really good. My mom has some of her pieces.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    “Hoisting” really tickled me…. ?. Once again I’m thoroughly entertained ??.

  • Pooh

    She look good to me. What is wrong with getting older?? Like my grandmother says, “if you not getting older guess what? Your a** is dead!” lol

  • GinGee

    and she eligible for the card NOW, shade thrown w/o facts

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    I liked Olivia in the Man in 3B, even though her part was small.

  • Yoni7

    Is that the movie with Lamann Rucker? I never watched it.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    But No No dissed Andy to his face during one of those reunion shows. Don’t remember whether it was about him or the gay community but this won’t end well for her.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Lmao @ no no???

  • Quitedeliteful

    Oh wow! Ima have to check it out…

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Honey, I’m all for the Underdog but NeNe has gone Hollywood. And for some reason I can’t identify. I mean, what has she really done but dance like a big lumbering man on Dancing With The Stars, and screamed at people on RHOA. Every other thing she’s done was canceled or short-term, but she acts like she has a catalog of blockbuster films under her belt, and a room filled with Oscar trophies. Girl, just stop.

    And those ugly clothes she’s always trying to sell. Chile. Those outfits look like they came out of Bea Arthur’s estate sale.

  • Reina1718

    Thank u lol nene tryin 2 do it all from clothing, comedy lol girl sit down & live off the “coins” u made lol

  • Reina1718

    She seems lazy

  • Reina1718

    Yes she went asking 4 the Tamar! Lol

  • Reina1718

    & she was corny

  • Reina1718

    Yesss!!! Lol i thought her comedy shows were sold out! How she have time for RHOA

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Right, and Greg’s ssi.lol

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    How so?

  • i troll it like i see it

    KIm can’t be happy either, she left the show very pissed.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    Yeah it’s a pretty good story for straight to DVD.

  • ShWa

    Nene’s face and hair always look off to me can’t quite pin point what it is….

  • Tlowe89

    50 and fabulous. She and Cynthia are aging very well, especially cynthia.

  • MythCalledLove

    Her navel looks odd I don’t know too high off center maybe?? Anyway when I think of her & Kim in the beginning it is no wonder they suffer from delusions of grandeur. NeNe had low self esteem and Kim sold her sold to the highest bidder.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Two episodes in and Nene and Kim will be at each others throats.

  • Reina1718

    She’s a great singer but doesnt seem driven

  • Tlowe89

    I think it’s the money Nene’s after, as well as the Continued popularity. A lot of famous people are probably more addicted to the fame/attention than the money. It’s an ego thing. I’m super glad she’s coming back though. I hope they ditch porsha since Fakedra is leaving too. If they bring on porsha real bff shaneka then I could see it working. But they really should just have Nene, Kenya, Sharee. Demote Porsha, Cynthia, and Kandi to a friend. Bring in Shaneka, and 2 other new girls. The show needs some new Fresh blood. Nene and Sharee will always be good humouress reality tv. Kenya is the one who will always bring wild drama so they need her. Kandi has some unresolved issues from last season, but I’m just kind of tired of watching her. Cynthia is wonderful, and very relatable, but that doesn’t make for interesting reality tv. She serves as a buffer for the other ladies. She’s not drama filled or crazy like the other ladies. Porsha Porsha Porsha, just too stupid, her voice irks me, and she’s a delusional lier with her rental boyfriends.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Gotcha

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    hell… I am embracing my AARP card like you Ms. Sandra…don’t shun the card…embrace the card! #MADDISCOUNTSCOUNTS

  • Tlowe89

    Wendy, Bruce, Nene

  • Renee26

    Right…when she first started she was at least funny with hr sarcasm and wise cracks but now she’s just bougie

  • Tlowe89

    That’s different. People like kim z and Nene were reality stars 1st, but got to big for their britches and thought they were real actors or someone would save them but learned the real hard way that, that’s not how it goes. People like Olivia and Golden were actors 1st but personal things or  Hollywood  saw no continued need for these  ladies. They were real singers or actors, but unfortunately they had to turn to reality tv to make some cash. They had or have real talent, unlike the people like Nene, Kim K, Kim Z, Evelyn L

  • Tlowe89

    Whose had more noses…. Nene or MJ

  • Coco

    Back then she had movie roles, She’ll get camera time this time and even start drama because she got nothing else going on.

  • Coco

    Cynthia is. Nene’s plastic surgeon and photoshop app are working overtime.

  • Yoni7

    I got her point.

  • Clock

    As if she had anything else to be doing…

  • Yoni7

    I don’t know why it never caught my eye. I see the book in the library all the time. I skip right on over it.

  • Luv Pitties

    Damn Peter! Lol Andy needs to tap you in for a season on this show to read all those cackling hyenas for filth but then he may sick Miss Lawrence on you and I don’t want to see that .

  • Sincerity7

    I’m happy for the original folks to be coming back though.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Someone was just raving about getting their AARP card because of all the benefits you get. If the GOOD LORD is willing I’ll live to get mine too. Age shaming is also immature and what’s wrong with society now.

  • Tlowe89

    Good eye. I went back and looked and the Photoshop got the belly button of center. Look at the jeans button and zipper area, her belly button should be right above it, not above and over to the right. Also Nene has changed since season one. The 1st season Kim seemed like the spoiled “it” girl and Nene seemed like the lacky. You could tell there was some self esteem issues. That’s probably how she got her fan base, by showing she too is not perfect looking, and has self esteem issues. But with the surgeries, and the added fan base and media attention from the show, her head go big, and she got those delusions of grandeur over the years. I’ve heard she not friendly if you bump into her in public…. But for some reason I still like her, because she gave the best most funniest shade. She and Cynthia were my favorites. The were like sour patch kids, sour but sweet.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I’ve checked it out already, she does have some nice pieces. I actually like how Nene dresses.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Puhlease, i betchu they both happy to be cashing them checks tho!

  • Ant Hill

    she needs to do something with those ugly man hands.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    FOR WHY THO!!! LOL….if that’s the case then CALL OUT EVERY REALITY TV STAR EVER MADE…they are all narcissistic in some way…e-ver-y BODAY….selling their souls for a check. It is what it is.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Reality tv is a curse. Once you get there it’s hard to leave. If you are in a healthy relationship when you start, it ends. Only two have been able to really pull away and that is K. Michele and Tamar. But even Tamar is still on there and K. Michele albums aren’t selling like they first did.

  • Tee Tee

    lol I missed it!

  • Yall StayWoke

    Tranny in Drag #Poor Excuse for A Woman. Neggher Nathan even has on a Kingz crown, not one a lady would wear.

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    I wholeheartedly agree with you. Hell as long as I don’t look or feel 50ish then there shall be no shame in the game! And discounts all the way too!

  • Wile E. Coli

    She’s pretty rough.. even WITH the ‘cultural appropriation’.

  • Decked Out

    Why does she look like a Tranny now? This is so sad. Please Wake Up Ladies.

  • BaybeK8s

    All those surgeries is going to have her body naveless like Tamera from the RHOC. Her face is already like the cat woman from the upper east side.

  • Yall StayWoke

    Yes….but without their original faces

  • Mister Fantastic

    Her belly button high as a muuug!
    #Photoshop

  • Wile E. Coli

    She’s disgusting. TV shows should be about decent people like these folks. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/88c72b917d8a91f134786fb2f15e56bd4e1b3fe84489785d2d62a3faf92cc0b8.png

  • i troll it like i see it

    I don’t see any real relationships coming out of this show from here on out. They will all be just tolerating each other for the checks.

  • pynkrose407

    haha!!! she has changed and not so much for the best in looks

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    This should be the final season for the peach carrying ATL woman. I think this one and the apple carrying women of New York too. They are tired and the stories are too. I will watch if Tiny goes on though , because I would love to see her interact with the women beside her bestie Kandi. I can’t see myself really watching the shows all the way through though….

    I just don’t see the point in her being there.She hasn’t been entertaining since season 5. Nene is just going to sit around with her senile husband Greg and act like she’s so above the rest of them.YAWN!!!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    …Especially that old man-shaped ass Joseline.

    Her hard looking ass looks like she belongs on a chain gang in Mississippi.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Miss Lawrence…oh, THAT. As it relates to that monstrosity, the reads pretty much write themselves. Miss Lawrence looks like a damn fool!!!

    I was introduced to that llama at a social event some years ago and a person who is in the reality TV world was there, and he told a few of us that Miss Lawrence was gonna be the next “big thing”.

    I was appalled. And in disbelief. There’s just not enough MAC cosmetics to make that baboon look camera-worthy, I thought at the time. But now I know what’s obvious: Bravo TV is desperate as hell.

    Well, BIG and Thing are two words that describe Miss Lawrence well, among other things. But anyway, somebody there thought it was a good idea to take a group picture. Hunneeyyy, when I tell you I eased my ass on up outta that photo op….

    There was no way on Earth I was gonna be permanently photographed standing next to something that has the balls to come out the house looking like that every day.

  • Tlowe89

    Now that would be s good storyline. And I’m here for that. Leon is a handsome man

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yeah me too. But she found love so I’m happy for her, it does change things though. Kroy was a catch, a guy his age doesn’t normally want to fall into family life so soon, I believe he was only 26 when they met.
