NeNe Leakes' health ultimate caused her to bail on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and no, we don't mean her mental health caused her to quit the cast.

NeNe: Who, Me?
We just can't get enough of NeNe's wonderful wacky faces.

More literally, she canceled a flight to the Philippines for the Bravo show because of a recurring problem with blood clots forming around the reality star's lungs.

This same condition landed NeNe in the hospital last November.

Flying long distances - it's a 20-hour flight from Atlanta to the Philippines - is potentially dangerous for people prone to blood clots, so this one was ruled out.

Sadly, that means no NeNe if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online unfold in the coming months, but only for the episodes filmed there.

Kenya Moore has just served NeNe Leakes. Or so she believes.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, one-time Miss USA and sometime Porsha Williams punching bag says she's doing damn well financially, thankyouverymuch.

The reason this is a big issue in her mind? Allow us to explain ...

  • Kenya's Cleavage
  • NeNe: The Side Eye

Kenya says she wrote a $20,000 check to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, defying NeNe's comments on The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show.

We know that NeNe Leakes' salary is insane, and that her business success backs up her swagger when it comes to being the queen of the housewives.

But Kenya is pissed that she was called out by her over money.

Leakes implied that Moore was all smoke and mirrors and didn't have the money she was fronting like she had. Well, that check for 20 large can speak volumes.

Not only does Kenya want her to eat her words, she wants NeNe to cough up 20 big ones of her own for a good cause and back up her own charitable talk.

NeNe Leakes muses every off-season about walking away from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, yet always ends up back on board when the show returns.

Now we know why. NeNe's salary for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 has been revealed, and her haul will be a record-breaker for the network.

Just how big a haul are we talking about here? Read on ...

NeNe Leakes Is Honest
"I'm not gonna stab you in the back. I'm gonna stab you in the chest."

NeNe got a massive pay raise and will be earning a stunning $1.5 million for the upcoming season, making her the highest paid Bravo reality star.

Leakes was able to “broker the huge pay increase because she is the most popular housewife of any of the Bravo franchises,” a source confirmed.

“Without NeNe, RHOA wouldn’t be the ratings blockbuster that it continues to be. “NeNe made it known she would need a significant raise to [return]."

Bravo execs, in the end, "had no choice but to agree to it.”

"While some of the other shows including RHONJ and RHONY have endured ratings slumps, Atlanta has never had to endure that,” the source said.

You’re not afraid of a little pussy, are you?

Oh, yes, that line is uttered at the outset of the first trailer for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, which Bravo just released and which introduces some new faces to the franchise.

Fearsome fivesome NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss are all returning on a full-time basis to the series.

Meanwhile, Porsha Williams (whose Season 6 reunion show brawl with Moore will live in series infamy) has been downgraded to recurring player.

Claudia Jordan (a model and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant) is now on board as a cast member, while actress/singer Demetria McKinney will also pop up frequently.

Look for Cynthia and NeNe to try and rebuild their friendship after having a falling out this fall; and also for Phaedra to struggle with raising her two sons after husband Apollo Nida was sent to prison.

Based on the above footage, it looks like Parks may be dating a new man.

And that Nida is anything but happy about it, to put it mildly.

Also: the words "whore" and "slut" are said a lot. Enjoy!

We've heard rumors about NeNe Leakes quitting The Real Housewives of Atlanta in the past, but for some reason, the quotable fan favorite has stubbornly stayed put.

Has she finally had enough of the show that made her a star, however?

NeNe: Who, Me?
We just can't get enough of NeNe's wonderful wacky faces.

It's somewhat baffling, because few - if any - Housewives have found the sort of popularity and success beyond Bravo that NeNe has enjoyed. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online or even read about it, you know the show is more stuffed with insane drama lately than ever before.

So much so, it's hard to imagine that NeNe still has room for it in her life.

And that may be why after seven seasons on the hit series, NeNe might finally be ready to hang up her heels, or so the current rumor goes ...

New Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 cast member Demetria McKinney celebrated her birthday in Puerto Rico with all her fellow Bravo stars last weekend.

This marked not only a fun birthday bash, but the first time the expanded, eight-person cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta were photographed together!

While Bravo has remained officially quiet about the new additions to the show, McKinney and the other newcomer, Claudia Jordan, fit right in with the current stars.

NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss will all return for Season 7, despite their differences.

Money talks for the #1 show in the franchise.

Things are about to get very crowded on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

And, we're guessing, very dramatic.

Bravo has announced that Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams will ALL return for new episodes of its hit series.

But the ladies will also be joined by two new faces:

Oh, it is so very much on between NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams.

Last week, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star posted an Instagram picture of an unusual Birkin bag with the caption: "#personalized #birkin #neneisms #hermès custom by me & my husband had a fit."

The purse (which can cost up to $10,000) had "Neneisms" written all over it, such as "I'm a very rich bitch" and "close your legs to married men!"

Williams responded to this item in a manner NeNe didn't appreciate.

  • Wendy Williams Red Carpet Pic

The radio and TV personally asked a “Hot Question” to followers on Twitter, asking them: What do think about @NeNeLeakes defacing her Birkin bag?

Suffice it to say, Leakes did NOT take well to this couched criticism.

Money talks. Ditto ratings. With plenty of each to go around, all six stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are set to return for the upcoming Season 7 on Bravo!

Despite the ladies' differences, and rumors that at least one cast member would be out, every cast member has signed on to return for next winter's insanity.

In addition to Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore, fan faves Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, and even NeNe Leakes have re-upped as well.

The incredibly explosive reunion had insiders calling it "highly doubtful" that both Kenya and Porsha would be back, while NeNe openly mused about leaving.

"For me, It's like a blessing and a curse," said the always-expressive reality star. "It has definitely opened up so many doors and opportunities for me.

"I have been able to do some of everything just from being on this platform," she explained. "But at the same time, it can be very negative and very draining.

NeNe Leakes posted a tweet yesterday that some are interpreting as an unofficial announcement of her resignation from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. 

"Never continue n a job you don't enjoy!" Nene tweeted.

"Follow your passion and success will follow u!"

NeNe Leakes Is Honest
"I'm not gonna stab you in the back. I'm gonna stab you in the chest."

Could just be some random words of encouragement, but considering that Nene has discussed leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta as recently as last month, fans can't be blamed for seeing the tweet as a sign of Nene's resignation. 

RHOA, of course, has been surrounded with controversy ever since the Kenya Moore-Porsha Williams fight on the series' reunion show. 

In the wake of that ugly incident, every kind of cast shake-up has been rumored, but given her frustration with her castmates and success outside of the show, NeNe quitting the long-running reality series seems almost inevitable.
