AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes finally made her first appearance in season 12 of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" during the Sunday, November 17 episode of the Bravo reality show. She joined the ladies at NYC's WorldPride but since it marked her first reunion with their co-stars following last season's tumultous reunion, things were so awkward.
Further making things worse was the fact that NeNe arrived after she slammed frenemy Cynthia Bailey in the press just moments before the event. Co-star Eva Marcille showed a video of the interview, in which NeNe called Cynthia "pathetic," to Cynthia.
NeNe revealed in the interview that she was upset by all the interviews Cynthia had done. Not happy with what she heard in the video, Cynthia responded by saying that the only thing that was pathetic was NeNe's wig.
Interestingly, NeNe didn't seem to have an idea that Cynthia had watched the video of her insulting Cynthia. She could be seen making a beeline for the latter and acting nothing bad had happened between them.
The two later shared a hug but the episode ended in cliffhanger. Before viewers got to see Cynthia's reaction, the episode cut to an end.
Prior to the airing of the episode, NeNe appeared to shade her co-stars in a recent Instagram post. Even though the new season actually aired its first episode on November 3, NeNe called the episode featuring her return the premiere instead.
"Just like DAT' she's back for the PREMIERE of RHOA TOMORROW @ 8pm on Bravo!" the "Never Make the Same Mistake Twice" author wrote on her account on Saturday alongside a photo of her for the new season poster. "They tried real hard on the pre-show hunni but it didn't work! The #HBIC #OG #the1 See y'all tomorrow."
