NeNe Leakes is the outspoken and opinionated star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nene has starred in the show for five seasons, and when she joined Kelly & Michael for an interview, NeNe gave us a sneak peek of what we can expect. NeNe is now divorced from her husband, but to find out exactly what happened, you’ll have to tune in to the show. “You’ll be surprised,” NeNe hinted.


NeNe Leakes: “Glam-Mother”

Michael asked NeNe if it’s true that she had recently become a grandmother, but she said, “No way!” She’s actually a “glam-mother,” which she described as a grandmother who is young and fabulous. She has an adorable granddaughter that she calls her “glam-baby.”

NeNe Leakes: Celebrity Apprentice

In addition to being an Atlanta housewife, NeNe also appeared alongside the Donald himself on Celebrity Apprentice. But would she ever do it again? Probably not. “It was a lot,” NeNe admitted. However, she did say that if Mr. Trump came along with the right offer, she may change her mind.

NeNe Leakes: The New Normal from Ryan Murphy

NeNe is also an actress, and her role on the new NBC sitcom The New Normal was written just for her by Ryan Murphy. Ryan first approached NeNe to guest star in an episode of his hit show Glee.


However, NeNe did such a great job, that being a guest star was simply not enough! Ryan then offered her the role of Rocky, a feisty personal assistant, on The New Normal as a series regular. NeNe took the role without even reading the script.

NeNe described Rocky as “outspoken, vivacious, and fashion forward.” So in other words, she’s a lot like NeNe herself! You can catch NeNe Leakes on The New Normal, which airs Tuesday nights on NBC.
