[Sidebar: Nene looks amazing, but I'm still wondering why she didn't wear her own shoe? Kinda reminds me of Sheree Whitfield's SheBySheree fashion show with no fashions. But I digress...]
As I stated in my last post, NeNe’s shoe, The Nethia, will retail for $39.99 (like all of the other shoedazzle shoes, and while the profits reportedly will go to a great cause, I’m not too sure we’ll be seeing Leakes give up her “Red Bottoms” anytime soon.

In the piece called “A Real Housewife Lands an Outside Gig”, the largest newspaper in the US called NeNe a “snarky quote machine” and talks about her new gig on “The New Normal”. Apparently, it’s difficult for those who find fame under their own names to then get work as fictional characters.
According to WSJ, Ryan Murphy, who co-created “The New Normal” and first cast her as a recurring guest on his hit series “Glee”, initially saw NeNe on Celebrity Apprentice when she quit Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” midshow after getting hostile with fellow contestant Star Jones.
Watching this on TV, Mr. Murphy saw a commanding performance and called Ms. Leakes directly. She says she didn’t know who the producer was, so she ignored him until her manager found out and urged her to return the calls.
She is likely to reprise her role as a hotheaded athletic coach on “Glee” this season. Mr. Murphy offered her the part on “New Normal” via text message.
NeNe said in her memoir that she always wanted to be a “famous actress” and WSJ reports that a year and a half ago, she took on a new manager, Steven Grossman. He told the newspaper that, to boost her crossover appeal they set out to shift the perception of her from “bitchy and mean” to “sassy and confident.”
What do ya think? Has Nene finally made that transition?
How would YOU describe Nene? “Bitchy & Mean” or S”assy & Confident”?
