Recently, there have been rumors circulating regarding RHOA star NeNe Leakes fate on the series. Many fans and viewers have already been speculating if NeNe will return or not due to the RHOA virtual reunion. Rumors have been swirling about replacements and even the return of some past cast members including Phaedra Parks and comedian Mo'Nique.

Yesterday , Mo'Nique cleared the air (via Instagram) and let us know that she has no intentions on joining the Bravo franchise. She also stated that she doesn't feel NeNe is a replaceable cast member, she pretty much is the show. "I wasn’t gonna say not a damn thing because I knew it was a lie,” she said. “No, my sweet babies, I am not doing the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,. And in my humble opinion, NeNe Leakes is irreplaceable. NeNe Leakes is the Real Housewives of Atlanta if you ask me, baby, that’s been 13 years.”

The comedian went on to say although, she loves and respect the women on the show she couldn't see herself feuding and being catty with other women it wouldn't be good for her spirit. "So no, I am not joining that cast though I respect all of those sisters they do what they do, and I am not replacing NeNe Leakes. Y’all know my spirit couldn’t take it. I couldn’t do those confessions talking about my sisters like that."

Kudos and respect to Mo'Nique because most people would've jumped at the chance to be on that franchise.
