After announcing that she is leaving the Bravo show that put her name on the map, Nene questioned whether the reality hit can actually stay on the air and be entertaining without her sometimes polarizing views.

"I don't know if the show will survive without me," she told People magazine. "I hope so. … It will just have a little bit of a different tone without me there, for sure."

Well, we'll say this: at least she's confident!

In announcing her exit from the show on June 29, Nene said, "The fans are going to gag! I definitely don't want to let them down, but I feel very free. I can breathe a little and do some things that I've wanted to do."

For now, Nene has actually teamed up with Kim Kardashian West on a project. But, she's not completely closing the door on "RHOA," saying she may drop by "to play with those girls." She also plans to continue watching the show.

She actually insists that her departure has nothing to do with bad blood. The show's creator Andy Cohen echoed that sentiment, too.

"We love @NeNeLeakes & she is always welcome back to the house she helped build!" he tweeted. "She's a Real Housewife forever!!"
