NeNe Leakes has put the rumor mill to rest. The reality TV star confirmed that she will return for another season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” E! News reports that she is still a part of the Bravo series and has already began shooting scenes for the upcoming season…

“NeNe Leakes is still gainfully employed by Bravo as a cast member of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ In fact, NeNe took some time to shoot while visiting in New York,” a representative for NeNe told E! News.

There was speculation that NeNe was being replaced by Marlo Hampton, who is engaged to NFL player Charles Grant. Ironically, NeNe was allegedly dating Grant when she and her husband were having marital problems.

NeNe’s larger-than-life personality is sure to cause a few stirs on the upcoming season of “Real Housewives,” slated to air this fall.
