NeNe Leakes: Yes, I Was a Stripper

by at . Comments

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!

How much would you pay to see NeNe Leakes nude?

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.


OMG she stripped......ewwwwwww.....why does the odor of mullet come to mind.....ewwwwwwwww


Nene, I respect the fact that you did what you had to just to provide for your child and yourself. I do find you kinda obnoxious and overbearing but I still enjoy watching! Calm it down a bit and Omg will get so many followers.


Lets be honest, many men, and some women too, would pay a great deal of money to see NeNe nude. What can I say? I like the way she's put together.


Im a single mom and thank god i never had to sale my soul to the devil! Not hateing but for someone to live this upscale life u r just getto and loud. But u do no who to mess with. U started with kandie last season but she backed your a$$ up real fast lol but serious u need to work in your inside voice cause you sound like the country trash u r! Bloop! Bloop! Boo


Put that kid in public school.


Those of you who aren't fortunate enough to be parents will NEVER truly understand what it feels like not to be able to provide for your kids.Although I personally don't condone Mrs.Leakes actions I do understand them. Go girl with your bad self.


While I don't agree with what Nene did and I don't particularly care for her character on the show I do feel she should be given credit for admitting it and owning it. People do what they have to do especially when it comes to your kids to provide for them. At least she isn't hiding it and evidently isn't ashamed so I say good for you Nene. Judgement comes from people who lack understanding of someone's particular situation in life. Don't knock someone until you've walked in their shoes for a while. :)


I might pay Ne Ne to keep her clothes on! Isn't she too big to be a stripper?


NeNe i understand a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do and i respect that you have no shame, but look at you now. Most with negative feedback is just Jealous. I love that you are so real and don't mind putting it out there. KUDOS to you.
