Exclusive! Kenya Moore Says NeNe Leakes Should Step Back from ‘RHOA’!

Kenya Moore isn’t holding her tongue when it comes to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star/nemesis NeNe Leakes!

On Wednesday, the “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” singer appeared on “The Real,” where she was asked about Leakes’ apparent desire to quit the hit Bravo show.

During a recent episode of “The Wendy Williams Show,” Wendy Williams claims friend NeNe sent her a text that read, “I’m quitting.” The host also said NeNe is holding on to a top-secret, bombshell announcement.

In response, Moore said on Girl Chat, “Does she have bills that need to be paid? No, I don’t think so. I think that’s fake news. Listen, it’s not a lot of jobs that will pay a woman in their 50s, a black woman especially, close to or over a seven-figures salary. So no, I don’t think she’s going to quit anytime soon.”

However, while teasing “SpitGate” — where Leakes gestures spitting on Moore in an upcoming episode — Kenya believes NeNe should step back from the reality TV program.

“I do think there’s a sympathy card involved, but listen, she’s been on the show for a long time, since the beginning,” Moore said. “The last two years have been really hard for me. ‘SpitGate’ is coming up, where you know, she has issues spitting things at people, including myself. And I just think that’s not the NeNe we fell in love with. We want to see the fun-loving, ‘home girl’ NeNe, and I think maybe it’s time for her to take a step back from the show and get herself together.”

“She’s done it before, and I think she needs to do it again,” Miss USA 1993 added, referencing NeNe not being a Housewife during Seasons 8 and 9 of the show.

When asked whether she believes NeNe has leaked any stories about her, Kenya exclaimed, “What stories has she not leaked about me? I think a lot of them come from her.”

After Williams’ reveal, Leakes seemed to address the drama on Twitter, writing, “Private conversations should be left in private! What are girlfriends for if you can’t vent to them on those type of days.”

However, TMZ said Wendy and NeNe later talked it out and are still friends. As for that bombshell announcement, Williams is reportedly keeping quiet until Leakes is ready to dish.
