NeNe Leakes — known for her larger-than-life attitude, quick-witted reads and very rich bank account — is returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for its upcoming 10th season — and Kandi Burruss is welcoming her back with open arms!
“Bringing the blasts from the past back into the future, it’s going to be crazy, I’m sure. I’m just hoping that the craziness is not on me,” she told Life & Style at the Babypalooza at Blogger Bash in NYC. “C’mon now, give me a break this year. Hopefully, it won’t be so over the top dealing with me.”
After a seriously rough season nine, the Xscape songstress is eager to step back and have NeNe along with Kim Zolciak, bask in the drama spotlight.
As readers know, the now fired Phaedra Parks, attempted to frame Burruss for planning to drug and rape co-star, Porsha Williams. However, during the explosive season 9 reunion, it was revealed that the southern belle created the malicious lie.

Kandi’s hoping that NeNe and Kim can take some of the drama off her hands.
“Since NeNe’s been gone, I was the one that took a lot of the heat, different drama, you know, and I can not wait for her to help relieve some of this,” she said with a laugh. “Relieve the pressure.”
As reported, NeNe would be returning to the Bravo reality series full-time, while Kim will return in a part-time status.
The 49-year-old star Instagrammed the news, accompanied by a shot of herself in a cleavage-bearing top and crown holding a champagne glass and a peach.
“It’s been a long process but we’ve finally reached an agreement!” Leakes wrote, the new later confirmed on Bravo’s website. “All hail the Queen for season 10 of #RHOA. #thethreatisback.”
And for anyone hoping that there is still some drama between Kandi and Real Housewives of Atlanta alum NeNe, prepare to be disappointed. In May, the Fashion Police host gave an update on Watch What Happens Live, and there’s no bad blood between the two ladies.
“Kandi and I are good now. Thank God she came from under Phaedra’s spell,” NeNe shared during her appearance in the Clubhouse. “The whole time I was watching the reunion, she kept saying to Porsha, ‘Girl, you speaking for her.’ I was saying to myself, ‘Kandi, child, you used to be the same way, honey. And I’m so glad you came from under Phaedra’s spell.’ So Kandi and I are good. Hey, Kandi, call me girl.”
