NeNe Leakes to Make Return to Real Housewives of Atlanta

Nene Leakes 2

NeNe Leakes is back. And for those who didn’t miss her she probably has one thing to say: Bloop!

Just four months after the veteran Real Housewives of Atlanta star announced she would not be returning for the eighth season of the Bravo reality show,but sources say that she will be making a surprise return.

RHOA is currently filming season eight’s trip to Jamaica, and NeNe will make an appearance—unannounced—much to the surprise of her former cast mates and the rookies on the show, according to sources close to production. The source also added that NeNe will be making an undetermined number of appearances in the new season.

Leakes may be returning to stir things up a little, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t busy with other projects. The reality star, who landed major acting roles on TV and Broadway over the past several years, will be teaming up with Betty White for ABC’s revival of the ’50s game show, To Tell the Truth.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 premieres on Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
