Reality TV show veteran NeNe Leakes has come a long way from her days working the pole in strip clubs to make ends meet. The 47-year-old Queens, NY native married her best customer, Gregg Leakes, and together they raised a family.
The road to wedded bliss hasn't been easy for the couple. But their 18-year marriage has stood the test of time.
NeNe obviously believes the unmarried 'housewives' sends the wrong message and damages the credibility of the franchise.
That is why NeNe recently gave Bravo producers an ultimatum: fire the unmarried 'housewives' on Real Housewives of Atlanta or she won't renew her contract.
NeNe made a recent appearance on LIVE with Kelly & Michael, where she discussed her ongoing issues with the show.
When asked if she’d be interested in returning to the series, Nene had this to say:
“I would be there if some people left. They need to get rid of some folks. Everybody that ain’t married. Well, I mean the show is called ‘The Housewives’ isn’t it? Well yeah, so you need to be married to be on the show.”
Apparently, she believes that some of the single women are to blame for negativity displayed on the show.
“Over the years, the show has become very negative. There have been some people who have been thrown into the mix that have become negative and made the show very negative. I think they should recast.”
Nene then went on to say that perhaps one or two single girls can stick around, but the rest need to go.
“I don’t mind if there are maybe one or two girls who are unmarried because it’s always great to see a single girl like dating and all of that kind of stuff. But to have as many girls as we have on our show that’s not married…I think we need to get rid of a couple of them.”
