Fear not hardcore fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans. Just because you wonât see star and resident diva NeNe Leakes on an upcoming episode of the popular reality series, it doesnât mean sheâs no longer on the show.
Leakes had to cancel a flight to the Philippines for an upcoming episode of RHOA because of the long 20-hour flight from Atlanta to the South Pacific country. NeNe bowed out of the trip simply because of health reasons; she has a recurring problem with blood clots that form around her lungs. Since long flights are considered medically dangerous for people who have a propensity to develop clots, Leakes felt the flight was way too risky for her to take. And in doing so, she ended up skipping the episode.
The rest of the cast will appear on this special episode, and although NeNe wonât, you will definitely see plenty of her this season. Good call NeNe; put your health, life and well being first, girl! Sheâs still rich yâall and she wants to keep it that way.
