Just a few days ago, ET reported that Rosie O’Donnell — who will officially be returning to co-host The View this fall — had a clause in her contract that would effectively ban NeNe Leakes from also co-hosting the ABC chat-fest, should producers offer her a spot. We doubted the accuracy of that report considering Rosie had previously praised NeNe, and it turns out we were onto something!


On August 6 Rosie took to Twitter to set the record straight. “I luv nene & hav no clause n my contract abt reality stars & as nene said - she is a super star,” Ro told her followers. Not surprisingly, NeNe retweeted the message and added a thumbs up emoji.

Truth be told, we don’t even know if NeNe is in consideration to co-host The View, but either way the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has plenty going on. For starters, her NENE By NeNe Leakes collection is already selling out on HSN with new items set to debut in October, and a recent tweet from Ms. Leakes indicates that she’s got even more up her sleeve.

“Thanking God 4 another productive day Connected wit some great ppl today! Nite Nite tweetie pies,” NeNe tweeted on August 4, and it sounds like things went very well because earlier today, August 6, she shared, ”Up this early on a business conference call out of the country. I never stop working.”

Are you surprised by everything NeNe has going on? Do you think she would make a good addition to The View? Sound off below!
