“Waking up this morning in a daze like what just happened! I stood before a SOLD OUT Broadway theatre screaming my name! The overwhelming amount of love & support brought me to tears! I have so many people to Thank this morning. You might get tired of me today because I will be posting lots of pictures of last Nite. I can’t believe this. Like I really can’t believe this!” ~Nene Leakes
That is Nene Leakes this morning after her Broadway debut on Tuesday night as Madame in Cinderella. It looks like we have had some misconceptions about the size of the role of Madame. It appears to be the third largest role in the entire play. According to Nene, it has the most lines of any other character. Keke Palmer and Nene Leakes both had their name up on the sign, while I get that both are new, the guy who has been playing the prince did not have his name up. I am getting the feeling that this is an even bigger deal that I originally thought. It sounds like Nene was a huge hit!
“A special thank you to all my boo thangs who showed up to celebrate me last nite! YASSS hunni! It meant the world to me to see them all there last night supporting me on my opening night for Cinderella on Broadway! Like what just happened!? A sold out theatre screaming my name! WOW! WE DID THAT!” ~ Nene Leakes
Among Nene’s “boo thangs” were Jill Zarin, Kristen and Josh Taekman, Ramona Singer, Joe and Melissa Gorga and kids, Treach and Cicely Evans and children (looking happy together!), Jennifer Williams, Jay Manuel, Miss J, Theo Davis, Luke Burke, Kathy and Richard Wakile and Frankie Grande.
The above pictures with Ariana Grande’s brother were from the elaborate after party. RHOA cameras were there catching Nene enjoying the celebration with lots of champagne. The brother jumped in front of the camera A LOT. There was a lot of champagne flowing and a Cinderella’s Castle cake with photos of Nene in her various gowns from the show. Nene was clearly touched by the entire evening. Her husband Gregg and son Brentt were both in attendance. All in all it looked like a huge “dream come true” moment for Nene.
A local radio station interviewed her after the show and Nene was confident and happy and managed not mention how much money she makes or trash anyone! It’s a Christmas miracle. No Real Housewives of Atlanta were able to make it. There were no sightings of Teresa Giudice or Kim Kardashian, but all in all it looked like a tremendous success. Congrats Miss Leakes!
