NeNe Leakes Admits 'Housewives' Drama Is Draining, But She Can't Quit It (VIDEO)

It's not everyday that NeNe Leakes appears on TV in a reflective mood, getting along well with a group of women. But Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star dropped the fiestiness that's become her reality TV trademark, and had an honest discussion about some of the perils of the 'Housewives' genre.

Aisha Tyler had a few questions about the constantly combative, drama-drenched nature of the show. "Doesn't it get exhausting, fighting all the time?" she asked. "Very exhausting, it's very negative, I'm so tired," Leakes replied. "It's very entertaining though, don't ya think?" Tyler asked the logical follow-up question. "It's entertaining, but do you ever feel like, 'I don't want to do this anymore?'" Leakes exhaled and thought for a moment, and then admitted, "Sometimes, yeah."

But it didn't take too long for Leakes to dispatch with the niceties and get back into 'Housewives' mode. When Sharon Osbourne asked if the 'Housewives' were friends before the show, she threw a few jabs. "We were associates, yes ... and now we're not." On her feud with LaToya Jackson on 'The Celebrity Apprentice,' she said, "I thought she was getting on my nerves, and I was like, 'Stop it, Casper.'" She acknowledged the comment was a mistake, but defiantly said she doesn't regret it. Leakes closed the segment with her bravado back in full-force. "I'm very nice ... and I'm the coolest one on the show."
