NeNe Leakes Talks ‘RHoA’ Season 9 Return, Stuns in Swimsuit (VIDEO)
NeNe Leakes has been a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta from the beginning, and even though she quit the show after Season 7, she just can’t bring herself to say goodbye to the Bravo hit forever.
The OG H’wife still showed up sporadically during RHoA Season 8 — even surprising her former co-stars during their cast trip to Jamaica — so with Season 9 expected to begin this summer, NeNe is trying to figure out just how involved she does or doesn’t want to be with the series that made her a household name.
During a May 9 appearance on FABLife, the mom of two discussed her future on the show, telling co-hosts Joe Zee and Lauren Makk she “doesn’t know” if another year is in the cards.

“I’ve always been there, I’ve never not been there,” NeNe said, adding she was pleased she got to attend the reunion and still be involved with her “baby.”
“I had to go because I have been doing this show since the day we ever rolled a camera and had one little van and one little camera,” the 48-year-old added.
Calling the show her “dysfunctional family,” NeNe revealed she isn’t sure if a full-time gig for Season 9 will pan out, but her allegiance to RHoA and to Bravo is clear.

“I always like to say to people that Bravo and the Housewives helped launch my career, so I will always be loyal to them and be there in some capacity,” she explained.
The rumored massive payday probably doesn’t hurt either!
Should NeNe return to RHoA, we can expect to see more of her quick wit, sassy attitude, and playful personality.

Case in point? The reality TV vet shared a split shot of herself on Instagram rocking a revealing bathing suit while sporting a sly expression.
The revealing swimwear is from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Tammy Rivera’s line, and it makes our girl NeNe look like the hottest glamma around.
Work it, girl!
