Rumor has it that NeNe Leakes has been having meetings with E! to secure her own show. A source told the Sun, “Nene is pursuing her own show at E! because she’s felt like her time at Bravo has been up for awhile." E! is also owned by NBCUniversal, the network that is also Bravo's parent company.
The source added NeNe is determined to “go out on her own terms” and is hoping to secure a “spinoff” behind Bravo’s back so that when it comes out that the network (Bravo) is done with her, it will look like like she had “something else already in the works.”
But it is being reported that E! “has shown no interest in green-lighting [NeNe’s] series” at this point.
Although NeNe has denied being fired, B. Scott has maintained that the reality star has not bene offered a deal to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta — and has reported that secondary sources have confirmed that story.
Meanwhile, The Blast has reported that none of NeNe's castmates cares if she returns to the show — except for Porsha. A source said, “They’re not surprised that Nene hasn’t signed her contract yet because she does this every season. Porsha is really hoping that Nene does sign her contract and come back to the show. They’ve gotten extremely close especially during quarantine. Nene is like a mother hen to her and always is checking in on [her 1-year-old daughter] PJ, it’s sweet."
