This is one “housewife” who is really cleaning up by working hard.
NeNe Leakes reportedly will be the highest-paid housewife on the fifth season of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she has a recurring role on Fox's Glee as Coach Roz Washington (which I love her on!), a role in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming NBC sitcom The New Normal,and since there is no stopping her, she is also a author and TV magazine correspondent, and she was a contestant on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice.
If all that wasn’t enough Leakes are the author of Never Make the Same Mistake Twice and founder of a charity, Twisted Hearts, which works to bring awareness to the problem of domestic violence. Her goal is to be the “Queen of TV,” and now NeNe Leakes also wants to be a princess of fashion.
On Tuesday, the 44-year-old mother of two announced that she has signed with global brand licensing agency Beanstalk to make her move into fashion. Beanstalk says in an announcement “leverage NeNe’s position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories, designed to empower women to walk into a room and ‘own it’ -- like NeNe herself.” No deal is signed yet, but Beanstalk will look to license a range of consumer products built around fashions that will appeal to the women who have watched her evolve on the show.
