Mynique Smith is the newest addition to the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and RealityTea reports that Bravo learned of Smith through NeNe Leakes. NeNe has played a big part in helping Bravo find ladies for the show, introducing Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield to the network. NeNe has been friends with Mynqiue for 12 years, according to Access Atlanta. Mynique is happily married to former Atlanta Falcons football player Chuck Smith, and the couple has three children together.
Chuck told the site that he has known NeNe for 24 years from growing up in Athens, GA and while he hasn’t commented on his wife’s Housewives status, he says, “She is just hanging out with friends, as a guest of NeNe but anything is possible.” Chuck also supports his wife and the show, adding, “I support my wife in all endeavors she is involved in. I believe in her.”
