SHOCKED WENDY SPILLS THE TEA

Wendy and NeNe, who were once at odds, have become close since the talk show host's divorce.

“I took a break in between commercials ... my office is right there behind the set. I had to go to the bathroom and so I looked at my phone in between commercials. And NeNe texts, ‘I’m quitting.’ ”

Despite Jerry's urgings, Wendy refused to go into details, but the actor did establish that Gregg and NeNe's sons were all in good health - leaving the possibility that the reality star might be ill herself.

Wendy then addressed her friend directly, urging her to come on her show and reveal her secret, and her real self to the world.

NENE LEAKES HINTED AT RHOA EXIT IN DECEMBER 2019

NeNe Leakes' supposed exit from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" is not as big a surprise as some fans may think.

The reality star first spoke about the possibility a little over two months ago, in December 2020 in an exclusive interview with Hollywood Life in which she stated that she was very unhappy on the show and was considering leaving.

NeNe, 51, has been a part of the cast of RHOA since 2008 and has recently revealed that she was disappointed with her colleagues, especially since the return of Kenya Moore to the show reignited their feud.
