"I have never been suspended,” NeNe, 51, said on the Majic Radio Show Saturday, June 22, in response to rumors that Bravo asked her to sit out the first half of the new season.

Host Vic Jagger then asked if she is appearing on a spinoff of the show. “No, that’s not true. If I’ve gotten a spinoff, they haven’t told me yet, and I need them to tell me,” NeNe responded.

 “I haven’t filmed a thing,” she added, speaking of a potential spinoff. “I read that, too. If I had a spinoff, I’d be happily telling you.”

Rumors swirled about NeNe’s suspension after she ripped a cameraman’s shirt during the filming of her “Bye, Wigs” party on the show’s eleventh season finale in March.

During the episode, NeNe firmly expressed that she did not want anyone to enter her closet. However, her RHOA costars Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss went in anyway

NeNe later told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen that she did not overreact to her castmates ignoring her request. “How are you going to overreact in your own home? If I tell you to visit me and sit right here, you need to sit right here. You don’t have the right to go through my house to open my doors, my closets, my pantries, none of that,” she said.
