Every new TV season brings with it its breakout stars. NeNe Leakes, star of the upcoming Bravo reality spinoff "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" would like to humbly suggest that SHE will be the season's No. 1 new TV star. Except forget the "humbly" part.
"Listen, I know for a fact that people will love NeNe," says the never-demure wife and mother of two who placed in Entertainment Weekly's "15 Stars to Watch" list before the season began.
"When I'm home, I'm the queen and I say whatever I want to say," says NeNe, "and when I run my business, I say whatever I want to say." Sounds to us like that could mean a world of trouble for NeNe's fellow Atlantan housewives, Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, DeShawn Snow, and Lisa Wu Hartwell.
EW says she's "exactly the kind of character TV viewers love to hate." We say that, between saying whatever she feels like and talking about herself in the third person, we might just straight-up love her.
Will people love NeNe?
