Oh just when I thought this day could not get any better. Let’s talk about Nene’s gig as “keynote speaker” at, as she calls it “Women Expo.” It just keeps getting better and better. First of all there are four keynote speakers for the two day event. Jackie Collins, Nene Leakes, Lisa Vanderpump, and Patti Stanger. Saturday is Jackie Collins and Nene. Sunday is Lisa and Patti. Tickets are five dollars online and ten at the door. It’s basically a bunch of booths trying to sell you shit. A mobile shopping mall.
BUT WHO CARES? THE STORY IS HOW NENE IS BEING PROMOTED!!!
Award Winning Actress, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Inspiration to Women Delivers the Keynote Address on Saturday at 1:30
AWARD WINNING ACTRESS? HOW DID I MISS THAT SHE HAS WON ACTING AWARDS?
NeNe Leakes shot to stardom as a fan favorite on Bravo’s top-rated reality show, “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and I Dream of Nene: The Wedding” and has parlayed her success into a breakthrough reoccurring role on Fox’s hit show Glee. Leakes continued her acting pursuits starring opposite Ellen Barkin on NBC’s “The New Normal.” With her brassy, no-nonsense demeanor and “tell-it-like-it-is” attitude, the New York native has quickly become reality TV’s breakout star and media darling.
NeNe Leakes is the author of “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice,” discussing her fractured childhood, abusive relationships, struggles with being a single mother, landing Mr. Right, and all the messy lessons she’s learned along the way. The memoir is an unapologetic and honest look at Leakes, as she spills the dirt about her life, addressing rumors and dishing on other housewives. Still, she manages to share some hard-earned and inspiring life lessons in her fierce, no-nonsense style.
Leakes faced Donald Trump in the boardroom as a contestant on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice”. Leakes’s charity of choice for the competition was the Atlanta Union Mission in Support of My Sister’s House. The organization is primarily a shelter for women and children who have experienced domestic abuse, and it assists them with home placement, job placement and education. Leakes suffered an abusive relationship for five years and knows firsthand the importance of this kind of support and hopes to be a voice for women who have suffered from domestic abuse.
If by “faced Donald Trump in the boardroom” you mean “got her panties in a twist because Donald put her on a team with people that would not take her shit and quit without so much as a good bye” then yes, she did that. And if by “charity of choice” you mean, “charity she raised no money for because she quit” then yes, that happened.
Leakes has also served as panelist for “The Insider,” and joined Ryan Seacrest and Guiliana Rancic for the E! network’s “Live from the Red Carpet” Emmy coverage and has appeared and guest hosted on “Ellen,” “The Talk,” “Anderson Cooper,” “The Wendy Williams Show,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “The Insider” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” â€“ just to name a few.
Boy, I bet Ellen and Wendy and Jimmy Kimmel and who knows which of the others would be surprised to know she guest hosted for them!
She made her acting debut in the role of “Coach Roz Washington,” on Fox’s hit comedy “Glee.” and starred on “The Game” and “Let’s Stay Together”. Because of Leakes versatility as a reality star, talk show host and correspondent as well as an actress, Leakes appeared on four different networks, showcasing her skills as a well-rounded talent.
on those shows. She’s a talk show host! And a “correspondent!” on four different networks!
When Leakes is away from the cameras, she lends her time and energy, supporting various charity efforts. She is the founder of Twisted Hearts, a charity that brings awareness to the plight of domestic violence against women of all races.
The delusions of Nene Leakes are beyond measure. I can’t stop laughing. I’m begging my LA readers to volunteer to go to this mess and report back to us. Here is the link to “women expo.”
