It’s no secret that Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has gone through a MAJOR transformation over the past few years. The diva has gone from drab to fab and is constantly making moves in the entertainment industry to further her career.
They say that the best payback is success and Nene is definitely showing her shade throwing former friend, Sheree Whitfield that talk is definitely cheap.
Not only has Nene stolen Sheree’s goals of becoming an actress, she has now dived head first into the fashion industry.
Forget She By Sheree, it’s all about that New-New by NeNe! In yet another stab at her former friend Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes has decided to become a fashion designer!
Details about Nene’s latest endeavor + check out photos of her style transformation over the years…
According to an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nene just signed with a global licensing brand to transition into the fashion world.
On Tuesday, the 44-year-old mother of two announced that she has signed with global brand licensing agency Beanstalk to make her move into fashion.
Beanstalk says in an announcement tied to Licensing Expo 2012, now going on in Las Vegas, 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.”
No deal is signed yet, but Beanstalk will look to license a range of consumer products built around fashions that will appeal to the women who have watched her evolve on the show.
“While the fame of reality television characters is often short-lived and fleeting,” said Michael Stone, Beanstalk’s president and CEO, “NeNe Leakes has displayed versatility that has enabled her to transition from being a Real Housewives personality to a featured television star on Glee. NeNe’s multifaceted personality and aspirational style will translate well into products that will emotionally connect with her fans.”
Well that being said… let’s take a walk down memory lane with a selection of Nene’s red carpet looks throughout the years:
