Grand opening/grand closing! If haven’t seen Nene Leakes in ‘Chicago’ on Broadway, you officially missed your chance.
While you were watching all the Miami messiness unfold on The Real Housewives of Atlanta last Sunday, ‘housewife’ Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas were one of many who attended as Nene Leakes ended a 4-week run in the hit stage play ‘Chicago on Broadway (December 20, 2015).
I was also invited to see the production first hand and was quite impressed with Nene’s performance as the infamous Matron ‘Mama’ Morton. (Sure, I’m gonna be labeled as ‘biased’ but she totally rocked the packed house!)
Nene’s voice was amazing and she added a ton of flair to the live production. But needless to say, after spending weeks away from home, the Atlanta ‘housewife’ was looking forward to celebrating the holidays with her family.
As she took a final tearful bow, Nene was presented with flowers from several friends, family and supporters. The first being her hubby Gregg Leakes, who proudly walked up to the stage with a bouquet for his lady love!
Nene was then treated to a celebratory dinner at TAO in NYC surrounded by friends, family and supporters.

When Leakes (as Mama Morton) sat down for a duet with the character ‘Velma’ about ‘Class’ it was almost as if she was reading my mind about the current state of RHOA…
Whatever happened to ‘Please, may I’
And ‘Yes, thank you’
And ‘How charming?’
Now every son of a bitch
Is a snake in the grass
Whatever happened to class?
I wish I had video proof of Nene’s singing ability. Maybe some will turn up soon.

Congrats to Nene on her successful Broadway stint! I’m looking forward to her return to RHOA but I’m also anxious to see what’s next for Mrs. Leakes…
