*NeNe Leakes is again suggesting that she’s had enough of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and will not return for an 8th season because her career is exploding.
She told In Touch Weekly recently: “I don’t know if I have the patience for another season – all those women arguing is draining.”
NeNe did say she would consider her own spin-off show, or even a talk show. But another year on “Housewives,” she says, would be difficult because of her messy co-stars.
“They’re absolutely jealous. No ifs, ands or buts about that,” she says. “I feel like girls are purposefully hired to gang up on me – doing exactly what they’re told, like robots. The show has opened up so many doors for me, but it has a negative side.”
She added that she would prefer to focus on her future and next step.
“Five years down the road, I hope my entrepreneur-ness is in full bloom. I want to retire young!”
Leakes, who has starred in the hit series Glee as well as The New Normal, also just completed her first stint on Broadway as the wicked stepmother in Cinderella. She was a part of the first cast when The Real Housewives of Atlanta first debuted on Bravo.
