NeNe Leakes Talks Possible ‘RHoA’ Return: “They Need Me” (VIDEO)
NeNe Leakes thinks the cast “needs her” for Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 9.
The 48-year-old appeared as a guest on Live With Kelly on June 14 and discussed her potential future on the show amid reports that she’s bargaining with Bravo to return to the series that she left last year.

When asked about whether or not she will be back, NeNe said, “I can’t tell you guys that yet, but what I will tell you is I’ve always been there, I’m loyal to Bravo, so I will be there in some capacity.”
Co-host Jerry O’Connell then brought up NeNe’s “intermittent” Season 8 role, and asked if she still watched the show even when she wasn’t on the small screen.

“Yes I did,” NeNe revealed, before admitting she knew she needed to “hurry up and get back” after seeing the reality TV hit without her.
“They need me,” she added.
While we prefer NeNe when she’s slightly less full of herself, Bravo seemingly agrees that she’s an integral part of RHoA.

Before quitting last June, our gal was earning a reported $2 million a season for her work on the Bravo stalwart — substantially more than any other H’wife — so clearly the network knows exactly what she’s worth.
Here’s hoping this means more NeNe in Season 9!
