Leakes went from the RHOA to the Celebrity Apprentice in 2011 and would be remembered as the first celebrity to quit on Donald Trump before he could utter the words, “You’re Fired”.

Leakes did not stop there. After her memorable departure of Celebrity Apprentice, network TV seemed to be her home. Ryan Murphy offered her a recurring role on the Fox hit series Glee as the no-nonsense coach Roz Washington. Her 13 episode stint ended as the show came to a close and then went on to co-star on the short-lived series The New Normal, on NBC as Rocky Rhoads.

Now that Phaedra Parks is out of the Real House Wives franchise who is going to replace her? According to BETONLINE, Leakes is being offered $2.5 million to return; $1.5 more than she was making before she left the franchise.

Is there a catch to this return? Her arch nemesis Kim Zolciak and former best friend is also reported to have signed on and would be making less than Leakes.  How would this effect RHOA and will this make the drama of the franchise more intense than the drama between Phaedra and Kandi? As of today, BravoTV has not disclosed the new cast of season 10 and it is still up in the air if NeNe Leakes will return.
