Reality-star, actress and successful book author, NeNe Leakes is giving us life for the September cover of POSE Magazine. The Real Housewife of Atlanta  diva and budding entrepreneur opens up about her new fashion line with Home Shopping Network, the highs and lows of being the only original member of RHOA and the joys of being a Glam Mother.  Check out a few photos and excerpts from her interview below:


NeNe on why she stared her fashion line…

“The first reason why I wanted to do a clothing is line because when I would go out, I would have so many curvy women come up to me and say, “Wow, you lost so much weight!” On television, I look a lot bigger than I really am. But big girls would write to me and ask me where I got my clothing from.  I thought, there must be a void in the market for the curvy girl. There are many fashion lines, so I wondered what can I do to be a part of the fashion world?”


NeNe on being wiser and better…

“Over the years I feel I have grown for the best. I have grown as an adult. I am older and wiser. I know so much more now that I didn’t know when I came into this world. I feel I have gotten better. I feel my life has changed for the better. I am the only alumni on the show. I am the only original. It’s good and bad.”


NeNe on being more “patient” as a Glam Mother…

“I just love my little glam baby. She’s so spoiled. She’s got a full room in my house. I get to sit in there and play with her. She’s just adorable to me. I can’t get enough of her. I didn’t know where I got this patience from. I guess I really am growing.”

Leakes goes on to further say that she would love to expand her brand to include home good items like Christmas decor and ornaments. The self-proclaimed “shoe freak” would also like to produce her own line of heels and sexy undergarments for the curvy girl.
