As a Real Housewife of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes has finally owned up to what some may consider a real shady past:

The reality TV star is a former stripper.

All The Real Housewives of Atlanta

In her memoir, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, Leakes tells all about her past abusive relationships, admitting that they drove her to take a job as a stripper at an Atlanta club years ago.

“Yes, I was a stripper, a woman who took her clothes off and danced for dollars,” she writes. “Let the judgment ensue. I mean, it’s easy enough to do, right?”

You heard her, readers! Judge and comment away!

NeNe's story, while clearly publicized for attention and money, is actually intriguing.

She turned to dirty dancing because the relationship with the father of her oldest child had just ended and “my son was in private school, his father wasn’t chipping in for pull-ups or food, I had no job and no money coming in, the rent was past due, and the super told me and my roommate that our condo owner was about to put us out.

So I did what I had to do.”

Does she regret it? Not one bit. Leakes said the experienced was “the ultimate power trip," adding:

“With every piece of clothing I took off, the more I got my life back. I worked this body like a well-oiled machine, and every movement got me closer to my goal of financial independence for me and my child.”

Interesting. Perhaps this was the motivation for Miley Cyrus' performance at the Teen Choice Awards.
