NeNe Leakes says she would consider returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta if she could iron out her differences with executive producer Andy Cohen.
On Thursday’s episode of The Real, the hosts grill NeNe about possibly going back to the hit Bravo series.

“The question that people really want to know NeNe, you know it, would you return?” Loni Love asks.
“I’m ok with returning to the show as long as you know, we can work through a few things. I’m happy to return to the show and besides I have a lot of unfinished business with a couple of them they confirmed on the show,” NeNe responds.

Loni wants more details and asks, “What kind of business, NeNe? What could get you to come back?”
The reality TV veteran then says the decision is up to Andy Cohen.
“I think Andy and I were really close for a really, really long time and I love Benny Boo, and I helped pay for his baby shower and all those things. I think that Andy and I need to have a sit down and talk and then we’re off to the races,” she says.
But that might be difficult considering NeNe left RHOA in 2020, and publicly hinted at alleged mistreatment behind the scenes.
“I can’t tell you everything that I want from them, but I can tell you that I want fair treatment,” NeNe said in an October 2020 interview with Tamron Hall. “I deserve fair treatment. I haven’t done anything that no one else has done there, or haven’t done even worse, so I don’t deserve this treatment. I’m as confused as you are.”
Days earlier, NeNe told a fan on Twitter she was “forced” off the show by Bravo executives.
“It sound[s] like they forced you out!” the fan tweeted, prompting NeNe to reply: “They definitely did.”
Looks like we’ll have to wait for Andy to chime in on NeNe’s future with the franchise. Stay tuned.
