On the same day that Dorinda Medley made the surprise announcement that she is leaving "Real Housewives of New York," former Bravo personality Tamra Judge dropped the bombshell that she'd heard Nene Leakes was also departing the "Housewives" universe. Now further fuel is being added to that fire after the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" head peach deleted her Instagram account on Tuesday.

The fan account Queens of Bravo noticed that when you go to Leakes' Instagram account it says "user not found." They commented, "Hmm... I wonder what happened here. Is the news coming?"

Leakes is still active on Twitter, however, and posted on Tuesday night. "Support Black Women, Protect Black Women! You have no idea what they’ve been thru or the WEIGHT they have carried on their backs silently for yearsssssssssss. Thank you! Bye," she wrote.

All of this comes after Judge, a former cast member on "Real Housewives of Orange County," seemed to reveal that Leakes is leaving Bravo in an Instagram post about Medley's announcement. She shared a photo of herself with Medley and captioned it, "@dorindamedley you will be missed icon 😘 but it’s pretty amazing on the other side 😝."

Judge then hashtagged several of the OGs from different franchises that are no longer apart of their individual reality shows. "#Vicki #Tamra #leeann #Nene? #LVP #Bethenny #dorinda 😞 gone but never forgotten 👋."

The inclusion of Nene caught fans by surprise considering no announcement about her future has been made.


"Did you just out NeNe? Don't think NeNe has officially said she wasn't coming back as of yet," one fan said.

Judge replied, "Maybe I'm wrong. I thought I heard she's not going back?"

There have been rumors swirling for several weeks that Leakes could be leaving the show amid ongoing contract negotiations with Bravo.


Last week, she posted a cryptic message on Twitter that had fans wondering who the target of the tweet was.

"I hav protected every1 for years and covered up things i shouldn’t have! I took the beating so others didn’t have too and no one has protected me or stood up for me. Y’all have gone silent and turned the other cheek. You are NOT exempted from getting this same treatment 1 day."

"RHOA" co-star Kandi Burruss weighed in on Leakes' future with the show last month. "I definitely would love for her to be back," she said. "I definitely feel like she is a major part of this show. I feel like it would suck if she decided not to come back."
