Nene Leakes is somewhere blasting The Throne’s “Who Gon’ Stop Me”.
There are not many people who can stretch their reality show fame past 15 minutes but Nene Leakes is doing it and doing it well. She’s covering Ebony magazine’s Annual Power 100 issue while flaunting a tub full of diamonds, ice on her neck, a glass of bubbly and a smile. [Nothing screams, “I’m Rich B-tch” better than diamonds.]
Proving that reality show fame isn’t all bad, Nene quickly became a stand out star on Real Housewives of Atlanta which led to a recurring role on Glee as well as NBC’s The New Normal. She also took a page out of Bethenny Frankel’s book this year and partnered with a licensing agency which will help her launch a clothing and accessories line. Move over, She by Sheree.
This year alone, she’s been featured in Vogue, US Weekly and has covered both The Hollywood Reporter and Ebony Magazine.
