Andy Cohen is giving mixed signals on Nene Leakes’ return. NeNe Leakes had a very public falling out with Bravo when she accused the network and Andy Cohen of racism but now she wants to join the Real Housewives of Atlanta girls. The question is, will she make it?

On her recent appearance on “The Real” talk show, NeNe admitted that she is open to returning to the show, although she still has some issues to hash out with Cohen. Nene said all she has to do is “sit down and talk to Andy” and she’ll be on her way to RHOA.

NeNe has been a Real Housewives of Atlanta OG for nearly a decade. There is no doubt that fans of the show would definitely want her back as a peach holder. But at the end of the day its the network’s decision to take.

During a December 1 interview on “The Real,” Loni Love mentioned to Cohen that Leakes expressed interest in becoming an “RHOA” cast member again. Cohen played it cool and focused on RHOA’s upcoming 14th season that will feature Marlo Hampton as a full-time housewife and Shereé Whitfield’s return, minus NeNe.

“You know, we’re in the midst of shooting season 14 of ‘Atlanta Housewives’ and it’s great and Marlo [Hampton] has her peach and Sheree [Whitfield] is back and we have some new faces, some great faces and Kenya Moore is on fire now so I’m really focused on season 14 of the ‘Housewives of Atlanta’ and not really looking beyond that,” Cohen said. Bravo Boss made similar comments about Leakes’ interest in being an “RHOA” star in future seasons while speaking to Entertainment Tonight in November 2021

NeNe’s husband recently passed away after battling colon cancer. In her interview with PageSix Kenya Moore mentioned that NeNe “has a very interesting story to tell now, especially with the unfortunate passing of her husband [Gregg Leakes],”. Despite past differences, Kenya appreciates NeNe for her contributions to the show and wants her back too.
