Next season, you may not see NeNe Leakes on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Why? Allegedly, she's threatening to leave this show. Here's why her departure is a welcome one.


According to gossip sites like, NeNe Leakes is planning to leave the Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA). A few years ago, news like this would have made me cringe. After all, for a long while, she was the life blood of this show, but not anymore. Currently, there are three good reasons why Nene Leakes should throw in the towel and ditch RHOA.

Her story line is dead.

There's no longer any REAL drama. She's back with Greg. Her oldest son is under control. This RHOA veteran is pulling in bank and she even managed to make up with arch enemy Kim Zolciak. In other words, NeNe Leakes is kind of boring, a characteristic not well-suited for reality TV.

RHOA needs new blood.

Along with NeNe, the current players of RHOA know the reality TV game too well. Cynthia, Kandi, Phaedra, Kenya, and Porsha are ALL pushing products through this genre. So, viewers aren't really witnessing what it's like to be a wealthy Atlanta housewife. They’re only see how entrepreneurial females behave who are trying to add zero’s to their net worth. It's time for Andy Cohen to bring RHOA back to basics and hire believable married women who can show viewers how the other half lives. There's got to be a few fame-hungry African American women rolling in dough that don't mind letting the less fortunate into their private lives.

She's a decent TV actress.

All successful men and women have to start some where - even Oprah began as a reporter before carving a niche in daytime TV. Yet, the smart ones know when to let go and move onto new territory. NeNe Leakes needs to have this epiphany. Her roots may be in reality TV, but this diva's past roles on Glee and The New Normal reveal she actually has talent. NeNe Leakes CAN do more than reality TV. However, first, she needs to rid herself of RHOA and spend more energy building up a genuine Hollywood career.


See why NeNe Leakes should leave RHOA? As a long time fine of the show, I love, but I'd rather her see her out than in next season.

Stephanie I agree with you. It is time for NeNe to expand her horizons. I would love to see her in more acting roles. I think she would make a great villain in one of the super hero films.
