When season seven of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" airs in November, viewers may see a housewife from another city. During her appearance on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live" on Sunday, August 3, Melissa Gorga, star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," said that she filmed with NeNe Leakes.
Melissa, accompanied with her husband Joe Gorga, talked to Andy about being good friends with Beverly Hills housewife Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky. When asked if they're friends with any other housewives from other cities, Joe brought up NeNe. Melissa revealed that she actually filmed an episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" with NeNe. The way Melissa described it, her filming with NeNe wasn't planned but was just a pure coincidence.
Melissa said that she ran into NeNe at the Home Shopping Network studio. NeNe, presumably with Bravo's cameras following her, arrived to film her segment for her plus-sized clothing line just as Melissa finished up her segment for her jewelry line so they spoke to one another. Melissa said that Joe and Gregg Leakes, NeNe's husband, had a lot of fun together and that she loves NeNe.
If Melissa does indeed make it on screen with NeNe, it won't be the first time that viewers see housewives from different cities interacting with one another. Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster, from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," were in one season six episode of "The Real Housewives of New York City."
Brandi and New York City housewife Kristen Taekman have been very good friends in real life for many years. Brandi even took part in Kristen's Las Vegas bachelorette trip and her wedding to Josh Taekman. So one episode of "The Real Housewives of New York City" showed Brandi and Yolanda meeting up with Kristen and her co-star Carole Radziwill for lunch.
Embarrassingly for Kristen, Brandi revealed that Kristen was so in love with an Elvis impersonator during her bachelorette Vegas trip that she wanted to spend the night with him. Melissa Gorga's appearance on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" with NeNe Leakes likely won't be as juicy!
