My favorite housewife straight out of Atlanta, Ms. NeNe Leakes, is on the cover of Rolling Out and is talking about her upcoming appearance on Celebrity Apprentice and how she may not return to Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Check out the highlights of the interview after the jump!
“I had an experience with Star,” NeNe huffs. “I had never met her before. I believe that any woman who gets around Star will find that Star’s not cool. And when you watch “Celebrity Apprentice,” you will see some sides of her that are just not cool.”
“Celebrity Apprentice wasn’t a great experience for me; it was a very hard show to do. We shot the show in literally 45 days. It’s a big show with 16 celebrities (you have eight guys and eight girls), as opposed to working with five. The hours are bananas; you work six days a week, and you rise at 4 a.m. and you get in at midnight. The earliest was 10 p.m.; but sometimes it was 1 a.m.”
“Donald is great; he’s very real in his own type of way. He’s not the easiest person to get to know right away,” NeNe recalls. “It takes some time to get to know him. I found him very cool, and I must say he really likes me. You know he likes women who are really tall. And he’s had some brown sugar.”
Return to Real Housewives of Atlanta:
“I can’t say today that I want to be a housewife next season, I don’t know that. Maybe a month from now, I will feel different. I want to have the opportunity to talk to the producers to see where we can go as far as the editing, and as you know, we don’t have any control over that, we just shoot the show and they show what they want to show.”
On ruining Sweetie’s life: Last season on “Housewives,” NeNe called Sweetie a slave. Afterwards, Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on his show. Recently, Sweetie publicly charged that, “NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.” NeNe delivers a smack: “I’m not ruining her life; what kind of life does she have anyway?”
