NeNe Leakes ‘Always Planned’ On Joining ‘RHOA’ Season 12: Why There Was A Delay In Filming

NeNe Leakes, 51, confirmed she would be on The Real Housewives of Atlanta on June 25. Despite earlier fan speculation that she may sit season 12 out, a source close to production EXCLUSIVELY told Hollywoodlife that she “always planned” on joining the hit Bravo show again. “NeNe just wanted to make sure she was being compensated fairly. She wasn’t going to start filming without a deal she was content with in place.”

“It just took longer than expected, but she’s happy with the outcome,” the insider revealed. “NeNe was always confident a deal would be worked out.” Speaking of NeNe’s ongoing feuds with Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, and Kenya Moore, the pal continued, “She’s not a fan of most of the ladies right now, but she loves the show and the platform it creates for her and she never wanted to walk away. It was always her goal and plan to return with a peach and she was confident it would happen. She was laughing at all the reports saying she was suspended from filming as there was never any truth to any of that.”

The suspension rumor started after the wild season 11 finale, during which NeNe went off when Kandi Burruss, Porsha, and a cameraman went into her closet during a party without her permission. NeNe leapt up and ripped at the unnamed cameraman’s shirt to prevent him from going further. Porsha claimed during the reunion episode that he went to the hospital after the altercation.- Source
