NeNe Leakes has revealed whether or not she is interested in returning to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” for season 14.

On Thursday, November 3, the former long-time housewife appeared on “The Real” where the subject of her potentially returning to the show came up.

“Yeah, sure. I’ll return to the show,” NeNe said on the show. “I’m okay with returning to the show as long as we can work through a few things. I’d be happy to return to the show.”

She even admitted she’s been in talks with producer Andy Cohen about returning.

“I think Andy and I were really close for a really, really long time and I love Benny Boo [Benjamin] and I helped pay for his baby shower and all those things. I think that Andy and I need to have a sit-down and talk and we’re off to the races,” she said on the show.

NeNe was on the first season of the show, which initially began airing in 2008. She stayed on for seven seasons before taking a “friend of” role for season 8. She skipped season 9 entirely then returned for three more seasons before quitting again after season 12.

She spoke at length about her departure in September 2020 when she revealed a “an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation” via her official YouTube page.

Season 14 was confirmed by Bravo in October with the following ladies on board: Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, and Drew Sidora, Marlo Hampton, Shereé Whitfield and Sanya Richards-Ross.
