NeNe Leakes is  back and ready to snatch some wigs and peaches on the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

After much speculation, Leakes made the official announcement via social media Wednesday afternoon. “It’s been a long process but we’ve finally reached an agreement!” Leakes, 49, wrote. “All hail the Queen for season 10 of #RHOA @bravotv #thethreatisback.”

Leakes will return for Season 10 after sitting out all of Season 9 and making just a few appearances on Season 8. “Got my eyes closed thinking bout how imma get you bitches together! Let’s go #RHOA #thethreatisback #Queen,” she posted.

After Season 7, Leakes seemed to be at odds with most of the cast and was very vocal about her frustration with Season 9’s explosive reunion. Since, rumors have swarmed that Leakes and former co-star Kim Zolciak would be returning, and Phaedra Parks would be out.

It has been confirmed that Zolciak is returning for a limited role, while Leakes will return in a full-time capacity. No word on the other cast members, but cameras were spotted inside filming during Shameka Morton’s recent bridal shower.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
