NeNe Leakes may not be on this season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she isn’t missing a beat. She is gearing up for her second Broadway turn as Matron Mama Morton in the hit “Chicago.”

She stopped by to sit on the couch at The View and dished on everything that was going on in her life. Of course she started out by saying how grateful she was for the opportunity to be one of the original cast member of the Real Housewives franchise.

She talked about how marrying her husband Gregg again after their divorce, made their love and relationship better. She even joked about how good love is the second time around. She went on to say “I love companionship. I love being married.”

When asked why she chose not to return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 8, she states “I felt like season 7 was really hard.  I felt like there was times I felt really ganged up on. I can handle myself.  It’s not cool, it’s not fair for everybody to come at you at once and everybody trying to make you appear to be something that you’re not.”

But it wouldn’t be NeNe if she didn’t figure out a way to make a cameo on this season’s show. With this move many people are left wondering if this one action is setting the stage for her to reappear as a regular on Season 9. “Maybe.  Maybe not.  Housewives has been very good to me. The platform has been amazing. It’s opened up many doors and opportunities for me, as you can see.  And lots of girls would like to imitate the NeNe Leakes brand.”

Well NeNe has definitely come a lonnnnnng way from the little, country girl she was when she appeared in Season 1 for the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Salute!!!

We can’t wait to see what’s next for her.
