'Real Housewives' Star NeNe Leaks Set to Launch Fashion Line
She has a recurring role on Glee, had a stint on Celebrity Apprentice and now the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is making a splash in the world of fashion!
NeNe Leakes has inked a deal with Beanstalk, a global licensing agency, to create fashion-forward affordable clothing and accessories. As pointed out by The Hollywood Reporter, Beanstalk is looking to license consumer products at an upcoming licensing expo in Las Vegas.
Michael Stone, Beanstalk's president and CEO explained, "While the fame of reality television characters is often short-lived and fleeting, NeNe Leakes has displayed versatility that has enabled her to transition from being a Real Housewives personality to a featured television star on Glee."
He added, "NeNe's multi-faceted personality and aspirational style will translate well into products that will emotionally connect with her fans."
The highest paid star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (she currently rakes in $750,000 a season), is also the author of Never Make the Same Mistake Twice. She also founded Twisted Hearts, a charity devoted to bring awareness to domestic violence.
