NeNe Leakes finally addresses those rumors that claim she was suspended from filming the first half of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" Season 12. Deets inside...
Just a few weeks ago, rumors started circulating that the self proclaimed HBIC of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" had been suspended from filming the first half of the upcoming season.
There were conflicting reports as to why NeNe Leakes wouldn't be filming for the beginning of the 12th season. One site alleged she was refusing to film because of Kenya Moore's return. Another publication made claims producers FORCED her to sit out after her insane altercation with the camera crew that sent one person to the hospital with missing teeth.
Now, the Swagg Boutique owner - who recently opened a store in the DMV area - is putting the rumors to rest. She claims she has NOT nor has she ever been suspended from filming.
“I have never been suspended,” NeNe told radio host Vic Jagger on the Majic Radio Show. “And I am on Season 12. Thank you very much.”
So, if NeNe is telling the truth, viewers won't have to worry about not seeing one of their faves the entire season.
The 51-year-old reality star also set the record straight about a rumored spin-off series.
“No, that’s not true,” NeNe confirmed. “If I’ve gotten a spinoff, they haven’t told me yet, and I need them to tell me. I haven’t filmed a thing. I read that, too. If I had a spinoff, I’d be happily telling you.”
There you have it.
By the way, a rep for Nene confirmed to Page Six she WAS delayed in filming the upcoming season, but that was due to contract negotiations. They claim there is no drama going on behind-the-scenes.
