*NeNe Leakes spoke candidly when asked about her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” castmates this morning on “Good Morning America.”

“I don’t like when they come on and they’re doing so much. It’s like; it’s a lot when they come on. They’re trying so hard,” Leakes said on “GMA.” “It really disturbs me because when we started with me and Kim way back, we were just being ourselves, and new girls come on and they do so much just to be on camera for a few minutes.”

Leakes was at the Times Square studio to promote her turn in Broadway’s “Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella” and new HSN clothing line, “NeNe by NeNe Leakes.”

As for the “RHOA” newbies this season, NeNe isn’t trying to give them any advice as the show’s lone original cast member.

“Nobody gave me any advice” she told co-host Lara Spencer. “They don’t give you a handbook; you kind of have to learn as you go.”
