NeNe Leakes Explains Her Wig, Talks Being A Businesswoman


NeNe Leakes is dishing on her talked about interview look that was revealed during Sunday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Viewers sounded off about NeNe’s wig (see the photo below) and she is taking to her blog to explain her fashion choices.


NeNe writes, “Being a busy business woman is no joke, but I love what I do and create! For over a year I worked tirelessly with my team creating The NeNe Leakes Collection clothing line for all women of all sizes. I joined forces with HSN to launch this fabulous collection, and I couldn’t have partnered with a better company! As you could see, we started our launch at midnight, but what you may not have realized was that I was there for a 24 hour period that actually started at midnight. Not only did the cold shoulder tunic sell out, many of my pieces sold out within hours of the launch! I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that. All I want to do is make every woman feel fabulous in the skin she’s in while wearing my collection. Thank you to the entire team at HSN and Tiger J! I am proud to say, we are family! Thanks to all of you that purchased my collection and helped make it a success!

As a designer, you take risks that sometimes don’t work! I think we all can agree the bob wig I wore in my interview didn’t work. I could give you this whole spill about what actually happened that day, but I’d rather not! I will say this though: A wig comes off, so it’s a good thing I am comfortable in the skin I am in. Why let little things like a wig or makeup define me? I’m one of those girls that lives by my own rules, which is why I am a force to be reckoned with. I’m proud of who I am and all that I’ve accomplished! I have discovered my true self, and I couldn’t be happier, but I have a sense of humor and I must say some of the pictures I saw on social media of my hair were hilarious! My hubby and I fell out of the bed laughing at some of the stuff we saw!

P.S. Wearing that wig wasn’t all bad, because the very next day I got a business call from a hair company wanting to do a wig line with me! Cha-Ching! #ByeWig.”

  1. Personally, I don’t like the super blonde color on NeNe or Cynthia- it clashes with thier skin tone and It ages them – and frankly they are too old for the look. Cynthia is drop dead gorgeous, and she still can’t pull off that super blonde color. It’s just too harsh. But that’s my opinion, to each their own. NeNe needs to stand out sooo she has yo have a loud color.

  2. Personally I like the blonde SHORT haircut on Nene, and I like the blonde highlights on Cynthia! ! It ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT age them, AND I’m NOT a fan of Nene!! Her choice of wigs are ALL wrong!!! NENE IS not a naturally attractive woman thank God for Nip Tuck!!!! Lol lol lol lol lol lol!!! Cynthia is beautiful inside and out!!!!
