'Real Housewives of Atlanta': Fans upset about NeNe Leakes getting just a few minutes of screen time
Even though 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star NeNe Leakes' appearances have been few and far between this season, it cannot be taken away from her that she's an OG. For over a decade, she has entertained viewers with her unique storylines, but now things are coming undone (at least from the looks of it) and fans are not in favor of it.
Even though there has been no information on whether the peach will be taken away from or will she be demoted to a 'friend' (just like Vicki Gunvalson), the limited screen time bit seems to be bothering everyone, NeNe included. "Just finished watching TONIGHT’S #RHOA. TUNE IN to see me walk thru the door the last 30 seconds of this episode. Last week tease was just that...a TEASE!...The End #theytriedit," the reality TV star tweeted.
NeNe is one of the strongest cast members and yet there's been a no-show from her. She didn't even appear for the first two episodes this season, all thanks to her beef with Kenya Moore. They had a massive showdown previous season and NeNe was apparently mad when she learned she was coming back, an insider informed Radar Online. "NeNe was furious that Kenya was coming back. And she was adamant that she didn’t want to spend time on camera with her at the beginning of filming," the source added.
However, in one of the previous week's episodes, we see how NeNe is completely invested in getting in touch with her calmer, spiritual side, hoping to forge a sisterhood that'll last longer. She is yet to settle her scores (in a good way) with good friend Cynthia Bailey, with whom she had a major spat about Kenya, who got invited to the latter's finale party last season.
Meanwhile, viewers are getting restless about NeNe's missing-in-action phase. While one said: "I’m tired of them playing with @NeNeLeakes with these couple seconds on episodes. We need her the full hour," another added: "We need to stop with the no @NeNeLeakes scenes. It doesn’t help the show at all. #RHOA."
