Season 6 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was chaotic. Rumors have been swirling for weeks about who will and will not be returning for Season 7. While there have been no confirmations either way, NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams are the two most talked about. Williams was kicked off “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show after she attacked Kenya Moore. According to a May 30 report from The Huffington Post, in order for NeNe Leakes to return for another season she will need a significant pay raise. Leakes is already the highest paid housewife in the franchise.

NeNe Leakes has been seen everywhere lately. From “Glee” to “Dancing With the Stars,” this woman is a natural actress. Her fan base spans across a very broad spectrum and some feel like “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is only a small part of who she is. Leakes often gets drama started on the show between the women, and there is almost always something for fans to talk about.

Rumors have been circulating that NeNe Leakes was fired from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but they are untrue. The speculating began when Leakes took “housewife” off her Twitter profile. Several of her tweets have been mysterious, but nothing concrete has been said about whether or not she will return. It is being said that Bravo extended opportunities for Season 7 to all of the women, including Leakes.

If the money is right, fans believe NeNe Leakes will return to “The Real Housewives” of Atlanta. It has been said that some of the cast may be changed, but there is no official word. Without Leakes there wouldn't be enough drama to keep the fans entertained. Hopefully an official announcement will come from Leakes or Bravo regarding the status of her return. For now fans can catch more of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” by watching “Kandi's Wedding” airing Sunday nights on Bravo.
