Leakes Leaping Into Fashion
NeNe Leakes is continuing to catapult herself further into fame whether her “Real Housewives” co-stars like it or not. Leakes, 44, announced June 12 that she will be launching a fashion line in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Global branding company Beanstalk also confirmed to the site that it intends to “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.”
The self-described “very rich” reality star has since taken to Twitter to talk about her new line, and told her nearly 770,000 followers; “When u keep it real & play the game fair, good things will come 2 u.”
Leakes’ talent manager Steven Grossman, also chimed in on the news and told the Hollywood Reporter that fans are attracted to her not only for her sass, but also for “entrepreneurial spirit.” “Her no-nonsense demeanor and entrepreneurial spirit has allowed her to amass a loyal fan base that shares her ambition,” said Grossman. “Through the launch of authentic and compelling consumer products, NeNe will have the ability to enhance the connection she maintains with fans and extend beyond her existing entertainment platforms.”
In addition to dipping into fashion, Leakes is continuing her roe on Fox’s Glee as Coach Roz Washington and has confirmed a role in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming sitcom The New Normal.
