REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills Garcelle Beauvais begged Nene Leakes to join the franchise.
This follows the longtime RHOA alum announcing yesterday she was quitting the show.
Garcelle, who was the first black housewife of RHOBH, tweeted: "@NeNeLeakes come help a sista out #RHOBH."
Yesterday Nene announced she will not return for season 13 of the reality series.
She shared a video entitled “Listen Closely, I got something to tell you” to her YouTube channel.
The former Bravolebrity admitted she could not strike a deal with Bravo after a series of “emotional negotiations.”
She choked up: "I have made a hard, difficult decision to not be part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13."
Nene reiterated: “It wasn't an easy decision for me. It was hard."
Nene skipped season nine and rejoined as a main housewife for seasons 10-12.
In June, The Sun revealed Nene was pushing for her own show at E! after shutting down claims she was fired from RHOA.
"NeNe is pursuing her own show at E! because she's felt like her time at Bravo has been up for awhile,” the source said after the star’s tumultuous season.
They went on: “Bravo isn’t budging on the contracts so unless she accepts that, it looks like she won’t be coming back [to RHOA]."
NeNe's departure from the long-running reality series comes as Eva Marcille also departed the series and execs hired "younger" stars for the show.
In July it was announced Drew Sidora, 35, and YouTuber Latoya Ali, 33, were in the running to join the cast of the show.
Last week another housewife, exited her franchise.
Denise Richards left RHOBH after just two seasons, following a season centered on Brandi Glanville claiming she’d had a one-night-stand with Denise.
PageSix later reported the 49-year-old asked for an “excessive” amount of money to return to the show.
An insider told the outlet: “People think that she didn’t want to come back and that it’s because she got ‘mean-girled’ [by other cast members].
"The truth is she did want to come back. But [Bravo] didn’t want to pay her what she asked for. It was way out of her pay grade."
Recently Dorinda Medley also announced she was leaving RHONY after several seasons.
Garcelle was also recently named the new co-host of The Real after Tamera Mowry-Housley quit.
She said: "I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic, bold and diverse women on the award-winning talk show The Real."
My love for pop culture and news, blended with my natural gift of gab, has always made me gravitate towards a talk show environment.
"It’s also exciting that it’s happening right after my amazing time joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
She joins Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Houghton on the show which returns to TV on September 21.
