NeNe Leakes has kept it all the way real about her life before “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” including her days catching dollar bills at a strip club. And although Leakes has never been shy about talking about her stripper days, she’s now opening up even more about her exotic dancer life and saying that she felt she was addicted to the pole when she was a dancer.
In a new one-hour interview with E!’s Giuliana Rancic, which airs Dec. 16, Leakes talks about her first night stripping and explains that the allure of stripping was made even more enticing by the money she made on a nightly basis.
“I remember going home and having something like $1,000 and thinking ‘I made $1,000 in one night. Baby we are doing this tomorrow night.’ Like it became an addiction,” she said.
Besides her stripper past, Leakes will also talk with Rancic about her mother abandoning her, her former abusive relationships and the hardships of being on reality TV. But we’re sure more than enough people will tune in to hear about the pole dancing.
