I’m not gonna name names, but there are a lot of reality stars who think they’re a way bigger deal than they actually are. That’s not because I’m trying to be classy. It’s just because there are too many reality TV cast members with big egos and an inflated sense of importance.
OK, OK. Twist my arm. I’ll mention one of those people. Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes has been a polarizing figure. NeNe has acted like she is too good for the show that made her famous and gave her all that money she brags about. She even left RHOA for a little bit to pursue some other opportunities. There’s no doubt that NeNe was hustling for those checks. She had a guest role on Glee. She acted in a show called The New Normal, which was canceled. NeNe appeared on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. To be honest, I have no specific memories of NeNe on that show. However, who could ever forget NeNe bragging to Sheree Whitfield about her “Trump check” on RHOA?
