Seasons 1-7, 8
“Why be so nasty and so rude—when I can be so fierce and so successful.”
“Success is in my DNA. When one door closes, another one opens.”
“I have arrived, and the spotlight is on me, honey!”
“When I walk into the room, I own it!”
“I don’t keep up with the Jones’, I am the Jones’.”

NeNe Leakes has been with The Real Housewives of Atlanta since its inception. With her outspoken, no-nonsense demeanor and “tell-it-like-it-is” attitude, the Duluth, GA resident has quickly become one of reality TV’s breakout stars. Always continuing to raise the bar with her entrepreneurial spirit, NeNe recently launched her own clothing line “The NeNe Leakes Collection” that caters to women of all sizes. She is fresh off performing as Cirque du Soleil’s mistress of ceremonies in “Zumanity” in Las Vegas, and is now heading to the Broadway stage to star in “Cinderella” this November. Viewers have watched NeNe and her family go through their ups and downs, but her and Gregg are happier than ever this season as she focuses on continuing to build her empire, one venture at a time.
