Reality TV veteran Nene Leakes is one of the few overnight stars who have successfully turned their 15 minutes of fame into something much more. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member has decided to enter the world of fashion, having developed quite the taste for high-fashion brands over the years. According to licensing agency Beanstalk, with whom Leakes will partner, this venture will “leverage NeNe’s position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories, designed to empower women to walk into a room and ‘own it’ — like NeNe herself.”
Leakes certainly is not the first RHOA cast member to test her luck at a fashion line. However, Leakes' line may be the only one whose collection actually makes it off the runway and into stores. Judging from the way her star has taken off and landed her recurring roles on "Glee" and future series, Leakes' venture into fashion will be yet another lane that the reality TV diva conquers.
