LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 26: NeNe Leaks (L) and Kandi Burruss attend the Annual Mercedes-Benz + ICON MANN 2017 Awards viewing party at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on February 26, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

During a recent interview, Kandi Burruss said that “it would suck” if Nene Leakes didn’t return to Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. “Listen, she and I, we’re like oil and water sometimes, but I definitely would love for her to be back,” Burruss said.

“I definitely feel like she is a major part of this show, I feel like it would suck if she decided not to come back. I feel like why wouldn’t she come back, but I feel like ultimately that is up to her, so we’ll see…. I have not talked to Nene either and I do not know what her plans are, so I don’t know.”

Burruss also said that she would love to see Leakes and Sheree Whitfield return to the hit reality TV series, but she said she doesn’t know if either of the ladies would have a peach for the forthcoming season. “Honestly, I don’t know, and I don’t know,” Burruss said.

“As far as Nene, I have not talked to Nene either, and I do not know what her plans are. So I don’t know. Honestly, we’re so early in taping I wouldn’t know who’s coming back, who’s not. I know that [they] have talked about new people, bringing some new people on.  But I don’t know who those people are yet,” Burruss continued.

“It’s too early for me to know because in the beginning, you tape some of your own personal stuff you’re dealing with. Then all of a sudden other things happen because you start having the group scenes, and that’s when you start meeting the other people that are going to be apart. So I don’ know who all is going to be apart.”
