AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes has broken her silence on rumors about her being let go from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". The Bravo personality made use her social media accounts to laugh off the rumors.
In a Wednesday, June 17 post on Instagram, NeNe shared a meme of herself laughing which seemed to be serving as her response to the rumors. "I can't chileeeeeeee," so she wrote in the caption. She also tweeted several laughing emojis on her Twitter page.

"And we know you not goin NOWHERE," said one user. Meanwhile, someone else stated, "You're face when the haters finds out you got that season 13 contract."
Speculations that NeNe was fired from the Bravo reality TV show started to circulate online after NeNe wrote in a now-deleted tweet, "You are NOT going to get away with this! I promise." That prompted people to think that the 52-year-old was permanently removed from the show.
Further fueling the rumors was famed blogger B. Scott who shared an exclusive report of NeNe's alleged firing. The blogger claimed that the producers of the show didn't ask NeNe to return for the next season. Additionally, the report said NeNe's rep asked the blogger to take down the story but refused.

"I appreciate the bond of friendship that I have made with several of my cast mates and the strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers at the Bravo and Truly Entertainment companies," she said in a statement.
Eva went on saying, "I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities."
