In June, NeNe Leakes announced that she would be stepping away from The Real Housewives of Atlanta to focus on other projects — but didn't rule out a return to the series entirely. Now, Bravo can confirm that NeNe will appear on Season 8, which premieres next month.
NeNe is also currently preparing for a return to the Broadway stage. In November, she’ll begin a four-week run in the Broadway production of Chicago as Matron “Mama” Morton. In addition, she recently teased an upcoming performance on the second season of Lip Sync Battle, which will also include an appearance by Gigi Hadid.
RHOA returns on November 8 at 8/7c. Check out the trailer below.
