According to the source, the execs “love” the idea of having NeNe since “fans really respond well to her.” Now, the only problem is getting the co-hosts to like her as well.

“Melissa thinks it’s a huge mistake and Kelly and Giuliana think it’s an outrage…They’re afraid that it will become the NeNe Show,” the insider added.“Melissa just doesn’t think NeNe should be in the running and definitely doesn’t think she even comes close to filling her mother’s shoes.”

Meanwhile, Bravo’s Andy Cohen is pushing NeNe to take the job. “He thinks it’s a great idea and E! is listening,” the insider tells Life & Style.
