NeNe Leakes Previews New Season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns to Bravo tonight with two new cast members and one old nose job.

NeNe Leakes previewed both in a recent interview with TV Guide, going into detail about Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey, among other topics:

On Parks: I knew Phaedra before...  We went to the same high school. I'm a little bit older. When we were in school - and I can say this because she told me this herself - she would say to me, "I've always looked up to you. I've always admired you." I was very popular in high school. Once she was on this show, though? She never really talked to me or spoke to me. It was strange. She had nothing at all to say to me. I felt like there was some type of jealousy there.

NeNe Leakes just wants to be a black woman, alright?!?

On her nose job: A lot of what you may have heard is just [rumor]. I speak very openly about it on our show, both what I have done and what I have not done. I tell it like it is. I don't have anything to hide. And for the record, I am not against plastic surgery. I believe that any woman that wants to do anything or fix anything that bothers her - if she's doing it for herself - I'm all for it.

I've heard that I've gotten a lighter complexion, as if I've bleached my skin. I think that is so stupid and ludicrous. For those who want to bleach their skin, that's fine. I just didn't bleach mine. I'm a black woman. I don't want to be anything but a black woman.
