NeNe Leakes’ cryptic tweet has some “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans wondering if “Dancing with the Stars” isn’t the only reality TV show that’s let her go.
“Good morning tweetie pies! Never continue n a job u don’t enjoy! Follow ur passion & success will follow u! Hav a great day,” NeNe wrote amid swirling rumors that “RHOA” has demoted her.
NeNe and co-star Porsha Williams, who was already rumored to be on the chopping block before her violent altercation with Kenya Moore, have reportedly gone from full-time cast members to friends of the show, according to blogger Tamara Tattles.
Though Bravo has not confirmed the gossip, NeNe’s tweet raised eyebrows for many. The Cirque du Soleil guest star has several means of income, so it’s possible she was referring to another job or just sending out a message of encouragement to her 1.5 million followers.
“Porsha was fired, but all the controversy led Andy [Cohen] to maybe, possibly let her come back in a Marlo [Hampton] capacity, but NeNe is no longer worth her salary and they are letting her go,” the anonymous source told Tamara.
On May 10, NeNe’s tweets suggested that she found the rumors humorous, but her newer post validates the gossip for some.
It would be ironic if NeNe were dismissed considering that she’s been credited with getting others fired from the show—something NeNe denies—and she suggested that her former BFF Cynthia Bailey had nothing to offer the series.
However, Cynthia and Kandi Burruss reminded fans that NeNe has little to do with hiring and firing.
Good morning tweetie pies! Never continue n a job u don’t enjoy! Follow ur passion & success will follow u! Hav a great day
