When we think about whether NeNe Leakes should leave Real Housewives of Atlanta now that she’s on The New Normal, we feel like a parent whose kid wants to go to college 3,000 miles away. On one hand, NeNe has already made “The Leap” that most reality stars dream of making. She’s costarring on Ryan Murphy’s new show, guests on Glee from time to time and, even more importantly, is generally perceived to be vivacious and fun rather than…you know…completely deranged like some other Housewives that come to mind. At this point, NeNe’s career is in no need another glass of white wine to the face. On the other hand…what about us? The woman was made for reality TV! What about our unscripted NeNe needs?
Luckily for us, we won’t have to give up a NeNe-packed RHOA just yet. “I haven’t decided, but I will tell you this: I’m very loyal to Bravo, and I will continue to do both shows for as long as my schedule allows it,” Leakes revealed on Big Morning Buzz Live this morning, when discussing whether this season of Housewives is her last. “When you are a good person, good things happen for you,” she laughed. Well, we’re good people…so good things will happen to us….ERGO NeNe Leakes will stay on RHOA until the sun burns out! Hurray! Oh, or she could get her own daytime talk show. We’d be more than okay with that too.
