“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” may be losing its biggest personality over salary disputes.

It looks like NeNe Leakes has just confirmed her exit from the hit Bravo reality show!

Although the network stated that all six of the Atlanta Housewives have been invited back for season 7, the status of NeNe’s role always seemed to be in flux. At first she was supposed to be coming back full time. Then there were reports from Star Magazine that Bravo had hit her with a major pay cut and reduced her screen presence to a part-time gig.

Was NeNe going to be coming back? If so, would she no longer be part of the central cast? She put the entire guessing game to rest on Friday with a 140-character statement, confirming gossip of contract disputes.

We’re not entirely surprised by NeNe’s confession. She’s the only member of the original cast that was still on the show, and she was the highest paid lady on “RHOA.” It’s not likely that she would have just accepted the cutback in pay and screen time without a fight.

Here’s hoping she can stretch her spin-off, “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding” into its own series.
