NeNe Leakes is all smiles after it was confirmed she's landed her own reality TV series after losing her peach on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The 52-year-old reality TV star was unceremoniously fired for insubordination and just a general bad attitude on the set of RHOA.

But the sassy former stripper landed a new show on the E! Television network title Glamsquad Showdown.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo Network and her manager broke down after the mom-of-two demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise but she turned it down.

NeNe was reportedly "hurt and depressed" over losing her six figure per episode salary on RHOA.

A source says the New York native was worried because she's responsible for three households, including her $2.1 million, six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath mansion in Duluth, her eldest son's home, and a rental property on the West Coast.

NeNe is the sole supporter for her unemployed husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor, whom she reportedly cheated on with a younger man.

The source says NeNe's finances have been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

With little money coming in from her clothing boutiques, NeNe reportedly took out loans to keep her finances afloat.

Her first round of applications for a federal grant and a PPP loan in March were rejected according to another source.

NeNe Leakes responded to allegations that she was let go from Real Housewives of Atlanta for insubordination and being a b*tch to her castmates.

"I promise I'll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love," she tweeted on Thursday, after blogger B. Scott reported she was fired from the reality TV series on his blog, lovebscott.com.

NeNe's manager also shut down rumors that she was dismissed from the cast after repeated acts of insubordination on and off the set.

"It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA," Leakes' manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. "Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be."

But B. Scott stands by his sources, and refused to retract his article.

A confidential source told Sandrarose.com that NeNe was "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her manager reportedly broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

It isn't clear why NeNe turned down the raise - or if she thought the 5% was beneath her.

A spokesperson for Bravo denied the reports that Leakes was not ousted from the series.

"There is no truth to this story- NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing," the spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

Remember, celebrity managers are paid to shield their clients from the truth.

NeNe Leakes reacted to reports that she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta by posting an Internet meme that shows her laughing out loud (see below).

She captioned the image: "I can't chileeeeeeee."

But behind closed doors, friends say NeNe is "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She's hurt and depressed," an insider whispered to Sandrarose.com late Wednesday night. "She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

The source said NeNe was "shocked" by her sudden termination, which was first reported by blogger B. Scott on Wednesday.

Bravo Network overnighted pickup letters via FedEx and emailed to the cast and their attorney of record, according to TamaraTattles.com.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her rep broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

Cast member Eva Marcille quit before she was fired. She reportedly earned a meager $7,500 per episode last season.

NeNe will sorely miss her six figure per episode salary.

The source says the 52-year-old New York native worries about her financial responsibilities -- she pays the bills for three households, including her $2.1 million, six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath mansion in Duluth, her eldest son's home, and a rental property on the West Coast.

NeNe fully supports her husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor, whom she reportedly cheated on with a younger man.

The friend says NeNe's finances have been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus crisis. With little money coming in from her clothing boutiques, NeNe reportedly took out loans to keep her finances afloat.

NeNe Leakes has been fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, blogger B. Scott reports exclusively.

Sources tell lovebscott.com that NeNe has not been offered a contract to return to season 13 of the longest running Real Housewives franchise that she co-created.

B. Scott said it's not surprising that she's been let go. NeNe's insubordination on and off the set and ongoing friction between her and other RHOA cast members led directly to her termination.

Another cast member, Eva Marcille, announced her resignation from the show rather than face the humiliation of being fired.

NeNe's list of violations include:

1. Starting off season 12 suspended following her physical altercation with one of the cameramen in season 11.

2. Popping off on a producer and walking off set while filming in Greece — in addition to not appearing in other episodes.

3. Walked off set multiple times during the season 12 virtual reunion.

4. Demanded the termination of former Executive Producer Andy Cohen.

5. Made not-so-subtle threats to sue the network.

Social media reacted to NeNe's termination:

Eva Marcille is leaving "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" after three seasons. Eva announced her decision to leave "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" on The Rickey Smiley Show on Tuesday.

"I appreciate the bond of friendship that I've made with my castmates and strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers of Bravo," she said during an appearance on The Ricky Smiley Morning Show.

"I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities. I look forward to serving the community on ‘Ricky Smiley Morning Show’ and finding other ways to be a voice during this transformational time during our country for people of color."

The 35-year-old mother-of-three married Michael Todd Sterling in September 2018. The couple share Michael Todd Sterling Jr., 2, and 1-year-old son, Maverick. She also shares a daughter, Marley Rae, with her ex Kevin McCall.

"I have a 6-year-old daughter and two young boys still in diapers. They are 24 hours a day and there is a lot of work to be done. I decided to spend my time and energy focusing on my kids and my community and not so much reality show business.

"I believe my time is up," she said, before adding she respects the RHOA cast members.

"I love every single one of those black women. They are all queens all in their own right. They are stars and I wish them the most successful season and transformational Season 13 that the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' has ever seen."

Someone sent StraightfromtheA.com's Michelle "ATLien" Brown an exclusive video drone tour of the Real Housewives of Atlanta's homes.

The aerial tour includes detailed video footage of homes owned or leased by RHOA cast members Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Eva Marcille, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey.

Original RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield's home wasn't on the tour since she is no longer a cast member. But she might be back on the show soon, thanks to that stunt she pulled with her mama.

The tour is so invasive detailed that one or all of the Housewives complained immediately to the YouTube gods, and the original video was taken down.

But Michelle only reviewed the video -- and didn't post the original video to her channel -- so her review was allowed to remain.

Kenya Moore is back at it again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star takes great pride in her long, glorious hair weave which she claims as her own hair. At age 48, Kenya is an inspiration to young women who believe they, too, will have waist length hair when they approach 50.

Unfortunately, things are never as they seem. Kenya, 48, took offense to fellow cast member Marlo Hampton saying she wears wigs.

In response, Kenya posted a video in which she claims all of that lustrous hair is growing out of her scalp.

Granted, her stylist did a great job installing her wig unit, but it's very difficult to blend thin hair into a lacefront and pass it off as your own.

Here is an image from the video that clearly shows the line where Kenya's thin hair is blended into the wig. Look at the hair above her ear.

If you still can't see it, here is another image where you can see the difference in texture and color of her real hair verses the wig. I lightened the thin, wispy hair over her ear so you can see the change in texture at the demarcation line.

Now watch the video again. Notice that her stylist parts her hair at that exact line above her ear where the wig begins.

Then Kenya pulls her hair back from her face to reveal her jagged edges and the thinning hair over her ear.

No 48-year-old woman has thick, jet black hair down to her butt. Even Stevie Wonder can see that's a wig.

Do better Kenya.

Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were livid when the latest episode didn't feature a fight between cast members NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore that was shown in last week's preview.

NeNe (pictured above) is seen as she arrived at the Strahan, Sara, and Keke in New York City on Monday.

According to Meaww.com, RHOA fans were eager to see the fight go down on this week's episode. But the episode ended without featuring the much anticipated beat down.

Instead, the episode shows NeNe bonding with Eva Marcille, while Kenya investigates a "snake". Kenya is pictured Christmas shopping with her infant daughter last month.

RHOA fans are hungry for drama - real or fake. They took to social media to express their disappointment in Bravo TV for trying their patience.

"No hotel fight tonight?!!!! All this dragging and dragging out the snake situation and Kenya and Nene fight is crazy.. Come on @BravoTV!! #RHOA."

Another fan tweeted, "Sometimes the only thing holding me together is seeing the Nene and Kenya fight and bravo dragging that out is just... #RHOA."

And a third user wrote: "Bravo keeps on playing with us, WE WANT TO SEE THE FIGHT BETWEEN KENYA & NENE #RHOA."

Question: Did you tune in to RHOA to see the fight? Do you think the fight between NeNe and Kenya is real or manufactured for views?

NeNe Leakes is reportedly nervous about being let go as an original cast member of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The 52-year-old TV personality and entrepreneur is anxiously awaiting her fate after rumors swirled in Atlanta that Bravo is considering replacing the aging cast members to attract a younger audience.

NeNe was all smiles as she exited the ABC studios where Good Morning America is taped in New York City on Monday. She was there to promote RHOA as part of her contractual obligations.

RHOA's TV ratings are respectable at just under 2 million viewers per episode and a 0.6 rating among the coveted 18-49 age demographic.

But, as NeNe clashes with her co-stars, the show's crew, and even fans - her screen time has been significantly reduced to just one scene per episode.

On 'Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen', the host threw shade when he noted that "NeNe felt a bit lost on her spiritual journey so she stopped and asked her life coach for directions."

RHOA cast member Kenya Moore added that NeNe's life coach is "failing her."

After the episode aired, a hurt NeNe took to Twitter to suggest that she - not Cohen - runs RHOA and that showing her just once per episode is not good for the show. She also said the other cast members wouldn't be stars without her.

"Me being seen ONCE per episode. They try so hard and these girls still can't bring it without me. #threaten you wouldn't be a star even if I was gone boo #thirst."

NeNe Leakes, right, was mistaken for drag queen Tiffany T. Fantasia, left, in South Beach, according to Page Six. The 51-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV personality was mistaken for the popular drag performer when she stopped by drag hot spot the Palace.

A witness tells Page Six that after NeNe entered the club, "A group of tipsy boys shouted, 'You'd better work it, Tiffany T. Fantasia!' But it was NeNe."

The spy said NeNe laughed off the mistaken identity. "She entered and played it off like a true diva. She walked in with a fierce walk and winked at the table."

Once fans realized NeNe wasn’t the world famous drag performer, the reality star was swarmed with "selfie requests". Leakes has previously frequented the bar with Bravo TV personality Andy Cohen.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returned for season 12 on Sunday, Nov. 3. In case you missed it, the middle aged cast - Porsha Williams, 36, Kandi Burruss, 43, Kenya Moore, 48, Eva Marcille, 35, and Cynthia Bailey, 51, continues the same reality TV formula that helps them to stay relevant.

This week's episode is entitled, "The Moore the Merrier" to promote the return of the second eldest cast member, Kenya Moore. The former Miss America, who was born under the Aquarius sign, welcomed her first child, a daughter named Brooklyn, in November of 2018. Kenya and the baby's father, Marc Daly, separated in early 2019.

Michelle Brown, of StraightfromtheA.com, recapped the season premiere.

Michelle says Bravo TV's producers reminds the viewers of Kenya's history of failed relationships and fake boyfriends, including Walter Jackson and Matt Jordan.

Michelle writes:

Kenya relishes in her new role as mom to her daughter Brooklyn, while struggling to maintain her long distance marriage to Marc. Porsha’s relationship with Dennis hits a rough patch after he betrays her trust. With a new baby on the way, Eva is feeling the pressure to find the perfect house for her expanding family. An unexpected guest shows up at Kandi’s restaurant to reveal some shocking news regarding Dennis. Meanwhile, Cynthia’s obsession with wanting to get engaged reaches new heights. Kenya throws a coming out party to introduce the ladies to Brooklyn, but the celebration soon takes a left turn when Eva makes an off-handed comment that rubs Kenya the wrong way.
