Just when reports were swirling that Kim Zolciak would be coming back to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 9, NeNe Leakes has revealed that she will not be returning to the show.

On Tuesday morning, Leakes revealed on Twitter that producers did not ask her to return for the new season, as a full- or part-time cast member. “I wasn’t asked 2 b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree & I think Kim Z” she said.

When asked if she was bitter by one Twitter follower Leakes responded, “Never bitter! Please support them.”

The news is pretty shocking since Leakes has always bragged about being an “OG” on the show. Last season, Leakes only appeared as a part-time cast member, as she was juggling other projects.

No word from Bravo on the casting changes for this season. But network head honcho and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen did post a few teary-faced laugh emojis after Leakes said: “I wish the single housewives of ATL the best.”

Eve Responds To Nicki Minaj’s Paper Magazine Cover: “I Just Don’t Think It’s Right.”

Looks like Eve isn’t holding back her opinions as the newest co-host of ‘The Talk’. On Wednesday’s show the ladies discussed Nicki Minaj’s racy Paper magazine cover, and Eve wasted no time giving her two cents.

“I worked with Nicki, I got to know her on ‘Barbershop’… she’s a nice person, she’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist I respect her… but as a woman, from my point of view, personally, I would not be able to do that. I think in this climate, it’s not good.

“I think every artist has a right to express themselves however they want to express themselves and I respect that as well,” she continued. “For me personally, as I started coming up in the business, I started realizing that young girls were looking up to me and younger people were looking up to me, and that, not that you want to be a role model, but it becomes what you become, it is what you are.”

She adds, “As I’ve gotten older… I’d just rather be a voice that’s uplifting… I can be a voice for those girls that might not have a voice, in a different way without showing myself off… For the Nicki fans, I love her, respect her. Go women in hip hop. It’s not my thing. I just don’t think it’s right.” 

But Eve isn’t just giving her opinion. She’s talking from experience. The “pitbull in a skirt” was also on the cover of Paper magazine back in 2001 ( yes it’s been around that long) and opted to keep her cookies and cakes covered.
