Why the New 'Real Housewives' Season 'Disturbs' Alum NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes had some choice words for her new "Real Housewives" cast mates.

— -- NeNe Leakes had some choice words for her new “Real Housewives” cast mates this morning on “Good Morning America.”

“I don’t like when they come on and they’re doing so much. It’s like; it’s a lot when they come on. They’re trying so hard,” Leakes said on “GMA.” “It really disturbs me because when we started with me and Kim way back, we were just being ourselves, and new girls come on and they do so much just to be on camera for a few minutes.”

Leakes stopped by to promote her new career as an actress in Broadway’s “Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella” and designer with her new HSN clothing line, “NeNe by NeNe Leakes.”

But it was chatting about the show where she got her start that had the sassy Leakes talking. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” returns this Sunday with a few new members, to whom Leakes has nothing to say.

“No I don’t [have any advice],” she said. “They don’t give you a handbook; you kind of have to learn as you go.”
