Nene Leakes is leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta really soon. The reason why? She says that she can not stay in reality television forever because she loves acting and want to pursue it full time or get her own talk show.
I can see her being talk show host. She’s the only one that have turned this reality and made a REAL profit out of it. She’s taking it to another level, acting, etc. I can appreciate what she’s doing with her career. Some of the other reality characters may want to take a few notes from Mrs. NeNe Leakes….GET IT GIRL!!!!
Peep the excerts from Madame Noire:
On if she plans to leave RHOA
At some point I do. I love the acting world. So at some point. . . I can’t continue to be a Housewife. At some point, I have to back out.
On whether being a ‘Housewives’ star makes her miss out on acting gigs
Probably. I don’t know that for sure. Just the thought of me being a “Housewife,” they would probably say “Hmmm. We may not want to use her.” Just the whole persona of being a Housewife. The cattiness and the bitchiness and the fighting. People see you as that is who you are.
On whether she would love to do an All-star Housewives edition and who’d she liked to have on the show with her
I would probably do me, Bethenny, I like Jill Zarin even though she’s not there. I think she is everything of New York City. Her accent and everything is just great. I would probably grab Gretchen [Rossi] from “Orange County,” Teresa from “New Jersey,” and we could work it out.
On wanting a talk show and what would be discussed on the show
I would keep it real for the whole hour! Whatever the topic is, I feel I could talk about anything. Politics, men, money, shoes . . . anything. I wouldn’t want to do a ‘Maury Povich’ show. Baby daddy! Who’s your daddy? Who’s your mama? I wouldn’t want to do that kind of show.
It’s just a matter of time. I am here now, because I am supposed to be here. And I guess when it is my time to cross over there, I will be over there. I am not religious, but I am spiritual, honey. My day is coming!
