You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to notice that our girl NeNe Leakes has been woefully absent from Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and even though the cast is headed out to L.A. for a set visit with her on next week’s episode, viewers are still annoyed by the lack of Leakes.

One such viewer even tweeted Bravo exec Andy Cohen, noting the need for more NeNe, and he responded, “@princessglammy @NeNeLeakes the Glam-ma was shooting two shows while we were doing RHOA - we are showing all we have of her!”

While that may not be the most satisfying answer, Mr. Cohen speaks the truth. During the filming of Season 5, NeNe was hard at work on The New Normal, and we’re still not sure we’ve seen the last of her on Glee, either.

So, like it or not, our girl was busy making things happen in Hollywood, so she dialed back RHoA. Do you think this season is in desperate need of NeNe? Sound off below!
