NeNe Leakes Was Excited -- & Scared! -- to Return to 'RHOA'

We could not possibly be more excited about NeNe Leakes's return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. And NeNe feels the same way, too. In fact, when The Stir caught up with the reality star and actress at NBC's All-Star Party at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, she filled us in on how she really felt about going back to the show. 


What surprised us the most is that the typically unflappable NeNe admits that she was a little trepidatious about entering back into the RHOA world:

I was excited to go back. I had a long break and I felt like I was getting back to me, so I was excited to go back. I was a little scared because I knew the girls were going to try to show me a little shade. I went to my go-to cocktail and I was like, 'Bring it on, girls. Bring it on.'

Although the cast has been doing a solid job of keeping the drama on RHOA alive without NeNe, there's nothing quite like her signature quips and zingers, which we've really missed. But what does NeNe miss about being a full-time cast member? The travel! She says:

I miss the girls. I miss the drama a little bit. I miss the fabulous trips. They have good trips. We went to Jamaica. We stayed at a fabulous resort. And, by the way, I had never been to Jamaica. I had a great time in Jamaica. It was a little nerve-racking; however, it was great. I had a good time.

Catch NeNe's big return on RHOA this Sunday at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
