Nene Leakes Talks LEAVING RHOA & Her Rising Acting Career With The New York Post

RHOA mega superstar, actress and business mogul Nene Leakes turned her 15 minutes of fame into a multi-million-dollar empire that includes real estate, a restaurant and a shoe line. She does a great job at branding herself. Love her or hate her, she is “very rich”! RHOA is only the beginning for Leakes. She is now a rising actress that had starring/leading roles in The New NormalThe Apprentice and Glee. A few months ago, Leakes signed with Global Brand Licensing Agency Beanstalk with plans to launch a line of clothes, beauty, hardware and jewelry in department stores nationwide. In an interview with the NY Post, Leakes talks about her TV obsession, acting career, leaving RHOA in the near future and doing a Housewives all-star edition. Below are some excerpts:

What’s your TV obsession right now?

I am obsessed with trash TV. I watch all reality shows. I watch all the “Housewives.” I am a huge fan of “New Jersey.” I like that Teresa [Giudice] and her sister fight. I hope they continue to fight. I hope they never like each other.

As your acting career gains traction, do you slowly want to get away from reality?

At some point I do. I love the acting world. So at some point. . . I can’t continue to be a Housewife. At some point, I have to back out.

How much does “The New Normal” challenge your acting range. Do you get to mostly be funny?

There is a lot of drama with me. Like you didn’t know that!

Have there been opportunities you have missed because of your reputation from “Real Housewives”?

Probably. I don’t know that for sure. Just the thought of me being a “Housewife,” they would probably say “Hmmm. We may not want to use her.” Just the whole persona of being a Housewife. The cattiness and the bitchiness and the fighting. People see you as that is who you are.

If they did an all-star “Housewives” edition, who would you like to see on it?

I would probably do me, Bethenny, I like Jill Zarin even though she’s not there. I think she is everything of New York City. Her accent and everything is just great. I would probably grab Gretchen [Rossi] from “Orange County,” Teresa from “New Jersey,” and we could work it out.

NeNe Leakes Reveals Secret Granddaughter!

The very “rich” Nene Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta just revealed her secret 2-month-old granddaughter. Nene’s son Bryson, 22 and his girlfriend Ashley, 21, welcomed a baby girl by the name of Bri’asia into the world this past June. Nene recently chatted with In Touch about her life as a grandmother. Below are some excerpts: 

On how she found out that she was about to be a grandmother:

“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along.”  “I said, ‘You look pregnant.’ And she said, ‘Hasn’t Bryson told you?’ But he hadn’t because he knew that I wouldn’t approve of him having a child so young.”

On her son being a young father:

“I didn’t feel like he was ready for such a big responsibility,” she says. “I was his age when I had him, so I know how tough it is. I didn’t want him to make the same mistakes that I did. I needed to let it sink in.”

On always wanting a daughter:

“I always wanted to have a girl,” she says, “and now I have one! She’s just adorable.”

On taking care of her granddaughter and buying her everything:

“I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. I don’t want her to feel strapped,” she says — she’s gone completely “crazy” buying gifts for the baby, including “little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her,” NeNe gushes to In Touch.

IN OTHER REALITY NEWS! Kenya Moore & Porsha Stewart Joins REAL HOUSE WIVES OF ATLANTA

Let’s take a break from all of the Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson drama and focus on other reality television news. The new season (season 5) of Real House Wives Of Atlanta went into production and a couple of months ago it was rumored that Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams-Stewart were joining the cast. The ladies were recently spotted sitting front row at Wonderland Kids Safari fashion show with Nene Leakes. Perhaps, those rumors are true! Kenya and Porsha recently signed on the dotted line.

According to In Touch Weekly, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be adding two new faces when it returns in the fall for season five, In Touch has exclusively learned. Bravo has signed on former Miss USA Kenya Moore. The 5’10” beauty has lots of experience in front of the camera, with roles in Waiting to Exhale, Deliver Us from Eva and I know who Killed Me with Lindsay Lohan. Porsha Williams-Stewart, who is married to football player Kordell Stewart, is also joining the cast. She was recently spotted attending castmate Cynthia Bailey’s launch party for her new P.T. Rose Moscato in Atlanta. Filming has already begun, a source says, and the fresh blood comes just in time. “Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are still not speaking,” an insider tells In Touch. “So these two will add some very needed new drama and storylines.” Bravo had no comment about the new developments, but other reports also claim that Kim’s role on the show will be cut down significantly because of her new pregnancy.”

“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!”
