If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you’ll notice NeNe Leakes’ friends come and go. Now the reality star has told Life & Style Magazine that she’s used to it and has, in a way, chosen fame over friendships.
“It’s very difficult,” NeNe told the magazine. “You can’t trust a lot of people. Your girlfriends all change, and your family is now against you. There’s definitely a cost that comes with fame.”
In a separate interview with Anderson Cooper, she even hinted that she didn’t expect to become famous and doesn’t even necessarily like being a celebrity.
“I had no idea that being on the ‘Housewives’ show, that we were going to blow [up] the way that we did,” she told Cooper. “If you were with me in a day-to-day situation, I don’t hang out — I’m a real homebody. I don’t like people digging into my personal life.”
But for someone who claims to not care that much about fame, she sure brags a lot. She even told Life& Style she’s bigger and more successful than any of the other Atlanta “Housewives.”
“I’ve got a lot of shine and had things happen for me, and they’re definitely jealous,” NeNe said to the magazine.
Sorry NeNe, but I don’t think quitting a show like The Celebrity Apprentice qualifies you as successful. I think Kandi Buruss might actually wear the most-successful crown. I mean, where’s your Grammy?
