During Andy Cohen's 'Ask Andy' panel, the king of the Housewives was questioned about the potential return of former OG Nene Leakes on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

“I’m a nostalgic guy. She and I came up together and there’s always room in my heart for, you know, everybody,” he told a fan at BravoCon Saturday, per video footage shared online.
When the fan asked whether Leakes could get to hold a peach again, Cohen, 55, replied, “Who knows? I mean, she asked me a few years ago to keep her name out of my mouth, so I try to respect that.”
Things between Bravo and the former “RHOA” star, also 55, have been tense since she accused the network and the “Watch What Happens Live” host of racial discrimination.
In April 2022, Leakes filed a lawsuit against Cohen, NBCUniversal, Bravo, production companies True Entertainment and Truly Original and other executives, alleging they encouraged and allowed a racist and hostile work environment.
The mom of two, who is black, said in the suit that she complained to execs for years about racist comments made by her former “RHOA” co-star Kim Zolciak, who denied any wrongdoing.
The following month, Leakes — who was on “RHOA” from Seasons 1 to 7 and 10 to 12 before announcing her departure from the reality show in 2020 — accused Bravo of blacklisting her for speaking out against the network.
In August 2022, she seemingly took aim at Cohen in a series of tweets.
After everything that has happened regarding Nene and her accusations against Bravo, why would she want to return to that cesspool of a network?
I'm also calling cap on what Andy said about Nene. Yes she said keep her name out of his mouth, but I feel he's someone who has moved on from the situation, but won't hesitate to remind Nene of the things she said about Bravo if she were to come back.
