NeNe and Jimmy also dished on the little battle between Andy Cohen and Donald Trump, with each of them claiming to be the man responsible for launching her career. NeNe settled the spat by telling Jimmy "I'm friends with both Andy and Donald. I've worked with Donald Trump for a long time, I've obviously worked with Andy Cohen, but NeNe Leakes started NeNe Leakes' career".
But the Real Houewives of Atlanta star did give props to both men for helping her. NeNe said she was grateful to Andy for giving her the amazing platform on RHOA and she shared that she was grateful because that's how Ryan Murphy discovered her (as did Donald), putting her on Glee and The New Normal.

Jimmy shared a clip of The New Normal, which was the first time I've seen any bit of it and I have to admit that I'm impressed. (I also have to admit that I've been watching too many reruns of The Vampire Diaries when my brain can't handle another minute of reality TV, because I immediately recognized NeNe's co-star as one of the "tomb vampires" from season 1. I need an intervention.)
In the photo gallery NeNe is spotted arriving to the show, but she changed into a gray Dolce & Gabbana dress for the interview. I thought she looked great, but a little uncomfortable because the dress was super short when she sat down. Nene wasn't happy at all with her wardrobe choice, Tweeting, "I'm @jimmyfallon show n this Dolce & Gabbana dress that I'am not feelin! It adds weight & that's the last thing I need".
