We bet Andy Cohen is breathing a huge sigh of relief right now.
NeNe Leakes shocked us all back in June when she revealed that she would not be returning to Real Housewives of Atlanta despite being the only remaining original cast member.
Well, it looks like the people over at Bravo were pretty convincing about getting her to come back, because we're hearing that the highest paid housewife will be on Season Eight after all!

Similarly to how Brandi Glanville will pop up on RHOBH next season, NeNe was apparently just brought in to stir up conflict with Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore, Kim Fields, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, & Porsha Williams — since the ladies are currently filming their vacation in Jamaica.
Plus, it sounds like none of the women knew NeNe was showing up… so this surprise attack could totally be one for the Bravolebrity history books! LOLz!!!
Make sure to catch NeNe's return to Georgia when Season Eight of RHOA premieres Sunday, November 8 at 8/7c on Bravo!
