NeNe Leakes is making her presence known! The OG Real Housewives of Atlanta star returns to the show in a big way, as seen in the midseason trailer for the Bravo series' eighth season, exclusive to Us Weekly.

NeNe — who announced her departure from the core cast last year — has been absent thus far this season, but the trailer shows her glorious entrance, and she has no plans to leave the ladies' lives anytime soon.

"NeNe is always going to be around now — she ain't never leaving," NeNe says in the clip.

The footage also shows NeNe's surprise at learning that Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey are now getting along.

"Y'all are besties?" NeNe asks incredulously. Kenya later criticizes Cynthia for making it seem as though they aren't particularly close.

The promo ends in an explosive way, with serious friction between Kenya and Kim Fields, as Kenya pulls Kim's chair away from the table — with Kim still sitting in it — during an altercation. Their fight can be seen in the video above.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8 p.m. EST.
