While there are rumors surrounding her departure from BRAVO’s hit reality series ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ NeNe Leakes says she is not going anywhere and neither is Tameka Foster… Speaking with Sister 2 Sister magazine, Leakes recently dismissed talk that she would be missing when season three of the hit show premieres due to a previously signed contract. “We all signed up for a third season when we signed on from day one,” says Leakes. “If anybody has been fired, nobody knows anything about it. We know nothing about it. I don’t know where the rumor came from.” In the midst of rumors of her exit making their way around blogs earlier this month some claimed BRAVO had been in talks with both Victoria Rowell (‘The Young and the Restless’) and Tameka Foster (Stylist, ex-wife of R&B singer Usher). While Leakes claims to be unaware of either woman joining the cast for season 3, she says Foster would not be able to do the show due to Usher ! “No. Tameka is definitely not coming on,” says Leakes. “They don’t know who’s coming on, but it’s definitely not Tameka because she … whatever Usher did, she can’t do the show.” Contrary to Leakes’ statement, Foster claims she was approached last season and declined the offer. “While I am flattered at the rumor circulating about being considered to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, I am absolutely not joining the cast,” Foster told Eonline.com. “I was initially approached by the producers for last season and declined. At this point, my priorities are focusing on being a mom and my philanthropy, Lost Ones Foundation.” As previously reported, both Leakes and “Tardy For The Party” ‘housewife’ Kim Zolciak were rumored to be on their way out.
