The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Fans Vote NeNe Leakes as Most Likely to Succeed

January 18, 2011 02:00 PM by Shayla Perry


We all know that Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks both have their own booming careers outside of the show, with Kandi making bank as a successful singer/songwriter, and Phaedra a high-powered Entertainment attorney, but which of the remaining Housewives has the biggest chance to make it in the business world– Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes, or Kim Zolciak? According to a poll conducted by People magazine, the fans think it’s NeNe Leakes, which is good, since she’s slated to compete for the title of Celebrity Apprentice this spring on NBC. What else does the “Keepin’ It Real with NeNe” star have planned on the business front?

On this season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, we’ve seen all of the ladies forging ahead in their careers, with many of them trying to make names for themselves in new fields. Sheree Whitfield is taking on acting, NeNe Leakes is getting into the entertainment biz with her 11 Alive segment, “Keepin’ It Real with NeNe,” while Kim Zolciak is continuing to push forward in her pursuit of pop stardom.

But according to a recent poll conducted by People magazine, it’s Miss NeNe Leakes that fans think has the biggest chance of making it big outside of the world of reality TV.

On the show, Leakes is busy trying to become a more “independent woman” as a result of the problems in her marriage, but her pending divorce has proven to be very beneficial for the outspoken Hotlanta Housewife. Already, she’s landed an entertainment segment on the local TV station, 11 Alive, called “Keepin’ It Real with NeNe,” and a highly coveted (albeit awkward) interview with super-producer and Atlanta native, Jermaine Dupri. So what’s next for NeNe?

In addition to starring on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice, Leakes reportedly has a few other business ventures in the works, including shoe and handbag lines, and eventually hopes to start producing TV and radio. We guess things with 11 Alive sparked an interest in the Bravo star. Could this mean a “Keepin’ It Real with NeNe” talk show in the future? Bloop!
