NeNe Leakes is a busy bee.
Beyond her “originale” status on ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’, the reality star has flipped that platform into multiple opportunities – including acting and fashion gigs with ‘Glee’ and the Home Shopping Network respectively.
And with new reports suggesting that she’s gearing up to replace the late, great Joan Rivers on E!’s Fashion Police, the outspoken star is weighing in on the rumors.
Watch below as she spills all to Extra, including her long-term status on ‘Housewives’.
We love us some NeNe, but have to wonder aloud whether leaving Housewives after its upcoming seventh season would be in her best interest.
Sure, she has her hands in multiple pots and is stirring them all concurrently. But, it’s as if none of her dishes are ready to serve yet. Put simply, she still has a way to go on the acting front and her HSN clothing is just getting off the ground. As such, from where we’re standing, we’d rather watch the process behind her side-projects play out on ‘Housewives’.
Regarding Ms. Leakes replacing Joan, those are some pretty tall stilettos to step into. On the one hand, she makes for compelling viewing and can “read” with all the herbs and seasoning that make for a spicy watch. Yet, we’re sure there’ll be a sect of folk wondering what style credentials she has to be heading up a panel to judge others. Understandably.
The solution? We say shake up the show in its entirety, retain a few of its hosts, install an established veteran in Joan’s position and allow NeNe to replace someone else on the panel.
