I hope you have your tissues ready because part-three of The Real Housewives of Atlatna reunion is going to be one emotional ride!
RHOA fans have known for weeks that NeNe Leakes walked off the reunion show stage after breaking down over her strained relationship with her mother. But in a preview clip form the reunion show finale, which airs on Sunday night, we get our first full look at what pushed RHOA’s self-proclaimed queen bee to tears!
The clip begins as Kenya Moore attempts to bond with her RHOA nemesis over the fact that they both are estranged from their mothers.
“You think we’re all against you. We have our fights, we have our arguments, things are said and you feel like we don’t like you or we don’t love you. But we don’t want to be at that same place with you. We want to move on,” Moore says.
She then tells Leakes that learning about her issues with her mother shows that the two have similar life experiences she wasn’t initially aware of. “I think by hearing your story right now. We have a lot more in common than you want to even admit,” Moore says. “You don’t have a relationship with your mother. You felt abandoned. We’re very strong women. I think we know that about each other.”
But the rare moment of peace between the two doesn’t sit well with a tearful Leakes, who rises out of her chair and walks off the set.
“NeNe don’t run away. We don’t want you to run away. We want you to stay here,” Moore pleads. However, Leakes insists that she simply can’t handle talking about her mother as she’s escorted away from the cameras by her RHOA castmates and therapist Dr. Jeff Gardere.
Watch NeNe breakdown into tears and leave The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show set in the clip above!
