NeNe Leakes Says Bravo Should Get Rid of All the 'Unmarried' Housewives -- Do You Agree?

2014 NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Upfronts

NeNe Leakes is speaking out against her Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members and letting everyone know who she feels should be able to hold a Georgia peach.

Mrs. Leakes has always been vocal about being the last remaining original ‘housewife’ left on the Atlanta franchise and now says that being a housewife should be a requirement for staying on the show.

She dished to Live With Kelly and Michael:

“I think that over the years the show has become very negative and there has been some people thrown in the mix that come negative and made the show negative so I think they should recast,” says NeNe. “I don’t mind if there’s one girl, maybe two girls, that aren’t married because it’s always great to see a single girl like dating and all that kind of stuff. But to have as many girls as we have on our show that aren’t married. I think we need to get rid of a couple.”

It’s easy to see that this is a direct jab at Kenya Moore and newbie Claudia Jordan. We’d quickly lump newly-divorced Porsha Williams into that circle, but at this point she’s just a ‘friend of the show’ anyway.

We do wonder if NeNe would feel the same about her friend, the possibly soon-to-be divorced Phaedra Parks. Surely NeNe wouldn’t want to take a good paying gig away from a newly single mother, right?

What do you think of NeNe’s comments? Should unmarried ‘housewives’ get the boot for Season 8?
