NeNe Leakes has really made something from this reality TV gig. She certainly is Bravo's one to watch – along with being Andy Cohen's favorite Housewife (he said it, not us!). The Real Housewives of Atlanta star (and she seriously is the star of that show) who moonlights as an actress has just landed herself on the cover of EBONY Magazine's 2012 Power 100 issue.
The "Money & Power" issue features a glammed up NeNe bathing in diamonds and sipping champagne because that is how the very, very rich role. Bloop! NeNe's cover hits newstands Nov 5th as the Dec/Jan issue. Well, Ms. Leakes that is quite an honor.
Luckily NeNe, who will wear a dress made of money in EBONY, hasn't let all the fame go to her head too much (unless She by SheBroke happens to be in the room!), NeNe was spotted shopping at a West Hollywood Target this weekend according to People Magazine. The soon-to-be-megastar was there with a friend and buying Sprite.
CLICK CONTINUE READING FOR THE REST!
An onlooker reports: "Their cart held an air mattress pump, a case of water and a 12-pack of Sprite. NeNe stood in the produce section for a bit before adding some grapes to her cart." Surely NeNe can afford more than an air mattress! Hope we don't have another She By SheBroke on our hands! Yikes. Please don't build a Chateau to Nowhere in Hollywood, NeNe.
Moving on, I'm sure you all caught the RHOA Hairdressers Tell-All Special which aired last Sunday before the explosive Lingerie Slap-Fest known as Real Housewives of Miami.
Anyway, for those who did not catch it Lawrence Washington, former BFF of Sheree and artist of Kandi Burruss revealed that the song he was featured recording with Kandi last season pulled a Don't Be Tardy For The Party. Meaning, he hasn't seen a dime of the royalties from "Closet Freak"! Lawrence pretty much admitted Kandi stiffed him the profits, but says he doesn't care.
"It's not an issue. I ain't seen no money. Ooh Ooh Ooh. No, don't get quiet honey," Lawrence told Derek J of what happened to his music career and the song. "We had a split in place…. (but) Ain't no split came about."
Taking to twitter, Kandi disputes Lawrence's version of events.
When a fan asked if Kandi told Lawrence about where the money went, she replied, "yes we did." Ouch! I imagine this will be a reunion topic!
And finally, last week Phaedra Parks celebrated her birthday! Phaedra tweeted: "GOD thank you for another wonderful year & great family" She celebrated with Kandi, husband Apollo Nida, and Kandi's boyfriend (and former RHOA producer) Todd Tucker.
Happy Birthday, Phaedra. The photo is below.
And of course, don't forget – RHOA starts THIS SUNDAY! How excited are you?!
