Kandi Burruss, 44, shared the news during an Instagram live interview when actress and producer, Lena Waithe, asked the Real Housewives of Atlanta star if her castmates had reached out following her sex scene in the series “The Chi.”
“No they haven’t hit me yet honestly. You know we’re supposed to start taping this week too,” she told Waithe.
Since then, there have been numerous rumors regarding NeNe Leakes’ status on the show. However, last month AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively reported that the reality star is currently negotiating her contract.
Rumors that the 52-year old reality star had been fired and replaced by Mo’Nique were finally put to bed last week when the actress said that there was absolutely no truth to the gossip.
“Let it come straight from my mouth. No my sweet babies, I am not doing the Real Housewives of Atlanta and in my humble opinion NeNe Leakes is irreplaceable. NeNe Leakes is the Real Housewives of Atlanta if you ask me baby.”
NeNe Leakes is usually last to sign her contract. In fact, she missed the first three episodes of season 12 due to contract negotiations.
Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, and Kenya Moore have confirmed their return for Season 13.
