Over this past weekend, I posted a picture of Nene Leakes covering the ‘One-Year Anniversary’ of Denim Magazine. Styled by Jason Bolin, Nene looks flawless in a couple of color blocking outfits, a long red dress, short cream dress, white blazer, black pants and designer pumps. In her cover story, Nene talks about being friends with Kim Kardashian and hanging out with Kanye West.
So, we’ve seen you out a lot with Kim Kardashian. Is she your newest friend?
It’s been said that you all have a good friendship, how do feel about her relationship with Kanye West?
“I’m very supportive of it. I was just with her and Kanye on the 4th of July weekend. We went to Atlantic City to see him perform and I’m supportive of her finding love. I think he is a great match for Kim, I think he is going to hold Kim down. And they actually look very cute together, yea!”
