Real Housewives of Atlanta Star NeNe Leakes’ career has exploded! She’s a Hollywood actress now, in her successful new series ‘The New Normal.’ After a reoccurring role on Glee, NeNe talks to US Weekly about what led her to the role, “Well, nothing actually drew me to the role,” NeNe explains. “Ryan Murphy told me I had to do it, so I just said yes! Because he had given me the character Roz Washington on Glee, so I feel like I am in debt with Ryan and I feel loyal to him…”
NeNe continues to express her love towards Glee saying, “I absolutely would love to go back over to Glee. We shoot on the same lot, Paramount, and I pass them every day so I can just walk over there. I would love to be back…”
It’s hard to believe with all of NeNe’s successes she wasn’t once rolling with the rich and famous. She explains it took some time to adjust to her new lifestyle, “You have to change on a platform like this, when people are judging you and talking about you. You can’t stay the same.”
NeNe also told Wendy Williams in a recent interview, “It’s very difficult. You can’t trust a lot of people. Your girlfriends all change. Your family is now against you. It’s unreal. So you have these walls up.”
NeNe’s net worth has recently been estimated at $3.5 million dollars. I guess she IS “rich bitch” like she told Shereè on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. BLOOP!
