But that didn’t stop her from honestly telling “Extra,” “I don’t know if I’ll return or not, I don’t know.”
Nevertheless, re-up with “RHOA” all comes down to whether of fellow cast mates are coming back or not, according to Leakes.
“I will return, however, if some of the other girls leave the show, because the show’s called the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ There’re a lot of women on the show this season who are single, they’re not moms, they’re not married, not dating,” she told AJ Calloway.
“I’d love to see a single woman on the show that’s dating, think that’s great, and fun to have that girl that’s looking for love, but we have too many girls that are looking for money instead of love, so I like to find a girl that’s looking for love, really wants to find a husband. I feel like we have a bunch of gold diggers on the show, so it’d be great if we found somebody really looking for love.”
Leakes’ comments come as the three-part “RHOA” reunion is set to air on Sunday (May 10) on Bravo. As she reflects on the past season, Leakes admits she didn’t feel a lot of love from the other housewives. Instead, she said she “felt attacked.”
“All season I felt like a lot of the girls were coming for me, but I’m not surprised by that.,” Leakes shared. “I’ve been there since day one, lot of girls are gonna come for me, I’m a threat and it’s to be expected, I’m a strong woman, I can handle it, don’t necessarily like it, but can handle it.”
Although her time on “RHOA” has been filled with drama, Leakes is more focused on the new reality show she has with former “Housewife” and on-again BFF Kim Zolciak, “NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches.”
“We’ll start shooting this summer, gonna do fish outta water experiences, traveling around the world,” said Leakes said about the upcoming Bravo series. “It’s gonna be super fun, probably a little drama here and there.”
“NeNe and Kim” is one of many ventures Leakes has going on outside of Bravo. And with talk of her being a possible co-host for E!’s “Fashion Police” when the show returns in the fall, could we be seeing more on the reality show fixture’s plate.
“I think ‘Fashion Police’ is great, I co-hosted many times when Joan was alive. I sat there, enjoyed the show, so I don’t know,” she told Calloway.
