NeNe Leakes talks "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast shakeup.

NeNe Leakes, the star of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” made some TV news on “The Wendy Williams Show” (weekdays on Fox).

NeNe and Wendy discussed the cast shakeup for the upcoming Season 5 of the reality show. NeNe denied rumors that actress and former Miss USA Kenya Moore would be joining the cast. She also commented on the departure of Sheree Whitfield, saying, “It’s probably a good thing that she left,” and noted that she “didn’t know” if Marlo Hampton would be back.

At one point in the interview, Wendy practically pleaded with NeNe to leave the franchise, asking, “Can you please leave the Atlanta 'Housewives' alone? You’ve outgrown that.” NeNe responded that the show had been a “great platform” for her career, she “loves the people at Bravo,” and confirmed that she will be a part of Season 5.

NeNe is currently playing cheerleading coach Roz Washington on “Glee,” and will star as Rocky on NBC’s upcoming show “The New Normal.”
