There’s no word on how frequently Leakes, 47, will appear, but she was spotted filming the reality show in at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande in Ochos Rios – where the ladies are enjoying one of their luxurious and infamously dramatic vacations – this week.
Leakes and her husband Gregg joined the RHOA cast at the Jamaican resort, where the group relaxed with spa treatments, took surfing lessons on a wave simulator and swam with dolphins, a source tells PEOPLE.
As for the Housewives’ reaction to Leakes popping up again?
“Everyone was very surprised to see her, but definitely friendlier than expected,” the source says.

In July, Leakes opened up about leaving the reality show after seven years to pursue other entertainment ventures, including a role in the Broadway musical Chicago.
“I honestly do not have any regrets,” she told PEOPLE exclusively. “I never sacrificed who I was as a person. I never sacrificed NeNe. I feel like so many girls come on reality TV and they sacrifice and change so much. I never changed who I was for a story line or a paycheck or anything. I feel good about that.”
RHOA season 8 premieres Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
