If you're "a little much," you may end up as a co-star on a Real Housewives series. But if you play it well, you might complete six seasons and move on to create other ventures. Nene Leakes moved on. The reality (and now stage) star has a full schedule, an impressive closet, and a regularly updated instagram account.
Leakes was originally known for her time as one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. While most who find fame via reality TV never branch out, Leakes has dabbled in a variety of other routes to fame and wealth. She has had roles in a handful of TV shows including Glee and The New Normal. She co-hosted the revamp of the old game show To Tell The Truth and competed on The Celebrity Apprentice.
In the last decade, with rising fame, Leakes has launched a clothing line, co-authored a book and gone on a comedy tour. Oh, and amidst all of that, she casually took on two stints as a Broadway performer in Cinderella and Chicago.
This woman has been busy! But even though she has done a ton outside of her RHOA fame, Leakes has remained faithful to doing reality show after reality show. She has competed in several reality competitions, including Dancing With The Stars and Master Chef Celebrity Showdown. Who knows where she will get her next reality fix but until she's on screen again (other than a small role in 2018 film, Uncle Drew), Leakes is routinely popping up via Instagram.
She balances family life, her career, her image and is always generous in giving fans the 411. At 50 years old, Leakes is definitely still capitalizing on her sex appeal—the grandma of a six-year-old is showing the world that she's still kickin'. In 2014, Leakes even appeared in adult-themed Cirque Du Soleil show, Zumanity. Her (mostly) fashion-focused IG keeps it classy, but she occasionally shows off her sexy side with a little extra skin.
