With her acting career um… stalling… NeNe Leakes is moving into the producer role. NeNe started her own production company last year NeNe Leakes Production True Entertainment and served as a producer for her spinoff I Dream Of NeNe.
Now NeNe is continuing with producing as she reportedly has three new shows in the works! A source told Jasmine Brand that while all the shows will be reality TV they will be decidedly different from Real Housewives of Atlanta fare. Meaning they won't show women fighting and socializing!
NeNe Leakes is getting her hustle on in NYC this week. She first stopped by WWHL to chat with Andy Cohen on Sunday night (and to dish on Golden Globe fashion) and then was spotted out and about yesterday afternoon again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was photographed as she left the "New York Live" taping at NBC Rockefeller Center.
NeNe was showing off her unique sense of style in a black jumpsuit and a pair of red and pink knee-high boots. The Tom Ford boots are interesting and what about that fur and leather cape/vest thing? Hey, at least it wasn't her usual pair of ripped jeans, right? Share your thoughts below…

Phaedra Parks is still reeling over Chuck-gate. Lest you forget he accused her of being a member of the Big Homie Team. As it turns out the only thing big about Chuck is his forehead and his ego. He's actually more like a little homie, or as Phaedra tells Kandi Burruss: "bitesized brownies and a cocktail sausage." Ouch.
Kandi is shocked that Chuck would classify their relationship so falsely, I'm shocked her chunky little dog is eating Pringles. Seriously – what adult purchases Pringles? Phaedra wonders if Kandi's dog needs a Colt 45 to go with his "ghetto" snack. She also calls Chuck a pig. Because he is one.
Jennifer is still promoting her Lucid Cosmetics line, and she has formed a foundation with her manager and another NBA wife called Project Save the World. In a recent interview with Live Life In Style, Jennifer explains, "I felt that I was extremely blessed and I wanted to give back, but collectively we couldn't decide on one cause that we all wanted to support. There are just so many causes that need our time, effort, energy and money, so basically it's whatever is in our hearts at that moment that we want to support. Our motto is to 'Change the World, One Mission at a Time'."
NeNe calls B.S. on the whole thing, "Please show me where in this episode I acknowledge that I knew her back in my Athens days. I'm still waiting. You haven't found it yet? It doesn’t exist!"
She continued, "Let me remind you once again, I don't practice lying, and in this case there's no need for it. What would I get out of saying I didn't know her if I did know her? Here's the story for hopefully the last time. Chuck, Phaedra, and I are all from Athens, Georgia. Did I know Phaedra when I was in high school, NO! I say clearly on this episode that I am the class of ‘85. Chuck says he's the class of ‘88 and the innocent Phaedra is the class of ‘89. Think about high school! It's generally 9th grade through 12th grade. When I was a senior in high school that means Chuck was a freshman, right? Phaedra would have been in 8th grade at that time, right? I left Athens at 18-years-old. I have lived in Atlanta longer than I have lived anywhere."
Kenya Moore and her desperate to get screentime frienemy Miss Lawrence meet for lunch to gossip about Sav-AWN-a, as pronounced wrong by Krayonce. Kenya reveals that apparently everyone in Atlanta, or at least everyone one in Atlanta that is also on RHOA, has slept with Chuck Smith.
Kenya giggles that Chuck didn't want to put a ring on "jumpoff" Phaedra Parks, because naturally the only reason a man wouldn't want to marry a woman is because she's a jumpoff. Not because people date but don't always fall in love and then they move on. Six proposals, one hired boyfriend, and a Nigerian prince she met on gmail later, Krayonce doesn't seem to understand the behaviors of a normal relationship.
Speaking of Chuck, he invited Phaedra and NeNe Leakes to Athens to propose that they all speak at the Boys & Girls Club there because Chuck is very involved. NeNe now knows Phaedra from growing up. Phaedra reminds us Athens is a one-horse, or one Dairy Queen town, with two high schools and everyone knows of everyone, just in case NeNe forgot.
Is someone thinking of pulling a Dina Manzo? Don't Be Tardy'sKim Zolciak has been having baby after baby, but I do believe that she's finally done. After giving birth to four children in three years, could Kim be ready to return to the show that made her wigs so famous?
Kim didn't leave Real Housewives of Atlanta on the good terms (to put it mildly), and she's had lots of, um, ups and downs with former bestie NeNe Leakes, Would she really be interested in going down that path again?
