NeNe Leakes Trashes Co-Star, Builds Brand in New Book
Move over, New Jersey. You had your chance in the spotlight.
On July 30, NeNe Leakes and The Real Housewives of Atlanta return for a second season.
Just a few days after the premiere, Leakes' new book, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, will be released by Simon & Schuster. Aside from chapters on being a single mother and escaping an abusive relationship, NeNe focuses on her controversial co-stars.
"I talk about my relationship with Sheree [Whitfield]," Nene told S2S Magazine about the book, which comes out on August 11. "I pride myself on being a very good judge of character, and some of the things that we went through, I didn't see them coming."
As for Kim Zolciak, and Nene's contention that she aspires to date married men?
"I talk about it very openly... and she makes no excuses for it," Leakes said.
Finally, Leakes touched on her purpose for writing the book:
"I'm really just trying to build a brand, and it's really important. I want longevity, I don't want to just be a reality star. You know, I was a business woman when they found me and I want to continue to be a business woman."
