Kenya Moore may have struggled to build a likeable brand outside of the Bravo series, but should she need tips on how to do so we’d say she needn’t look any further than her ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ sister NeNe Leakes.
For, after rising to become one of Bravo’s more lucrative characters, securing a recurring role on the hit series ‘Glee‘, working on her magic on the short lived ‘The New Normal’, rocking ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ and waltzing her way to higher celebrity ground on ‘Dancing with the Stars‘, Leakes is now being considered for the “lead role” on E!’s ‘Fashion Police.’
