‘RHOA’ Producers Desperate To Keep Nene Leakes — Report
“Show execs do not want Nene to leave,” an insider revealed to Radar Online. “Nene is the driving factor in ratings. Her big blowout in Canada was the first episode to hit over two million for the season.”
In addition to being behind the show’s ratings boost, producers and Bravo executives also feel that she brings the drama and that without her, the show may suffer. “The network does not want to let her go because it is her drama that everyone tunes in for,” continued the source.
As previously reported, Nene has been floating the idea of leaving RHOA for weeks and all of these stories are likely coming from her camp.
While she may be behind the rating boost, she has barely even appeared this season and it is clear that the cast can carry the show without her, much like they did when she quit a few years back.
With the rest of the Real Housewives veterans heading out the door, Nene may want to slow her roll when it comes to leaving RHOA and it looks like she has the support of both producers and the network if she wanted to stay.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays on Bravo.
