Biggie said it best, “More money, more problems,” but reality TV star Nene Leakes never imagined such.
The outspoken star of the Atlanta Housewives franchise known for cashing Trump checks can definitely vouch for every statement regarding her coinage. From well received TV acting roles to a widely successful HSN clothing line and now a possible talk show in the works Nene might possibly give her friend Kim Kardashian some competition when it comes to making the transition from reality TV starlet to full fledged celebrity.
Looking more than satisfied with life Leakes struck a pose for Pose Magazine looking flawless. See what money can do? Aside from her usual carrying on about the depth about her pockets, she kept it real, giving the scoop on everything that’s been going on in her life while the cameras have stopped rolling.

Keeping It Real
“I do think that being real comes off as being harsh. I always have to think before I say things because I’m a straight shooter. I don’t think I’m being mean. I think it’s the delivery that makes it mean. Sometimes I shoot and move on. I don’t know any other way to do it, but I am learning that sometimes everything doesn’t need to be said. But, if you ask me to be real, I’m going to be real and you may not like it. Be sure you want to ask me, because I’m just going to tell you. Some people have a really sweet tone. They say things and it comes off really sweet. I do know it’s all in the delivery. There are people who say that they’re real, but they mean real loud or real ghetto or real crazy. What I need to do is try to be a little phony now and then. [laughing] My husband is always on my case. ‘You don’t have to say that,’ or ‘You don’t have to be that real about it.’ Like, okay, maybe he’s right. I’m going to do much better from now on. I am really working on it.”
“I love my girlfriends and love being with them, going out in our neighborhood for a drink, where we don’t have to wear make up or going to lunch with them.”
Reality TV and Cynthia Bailey
“Well, that’s definitely what the producers want. They want viewers to believe we are all friends because we’re on a show together. Now, Cynthia and I did form a real friendship over the years we were on the show together. I don’t think the viewers know that I never knew her until she signed up to do the show. I never met her. I never knew anything about her. I never met Kandi Burruss, Porsha, or Lisa Wu Hartwell until she stepped on the show and we signed these contracts. When you guys are getting to know us, we’re getting to know each other. We are going out, having drinks, and getting to know each other. Sometimes you meet people and you like them. Then as you get to know them, you think, ‘You know, I actually thought I liked her…but I don’t.’ We’re shooting season seven right now so the viewers get to see how it plays out.”
