NeNe Leakes’ (born Linnethia Monique Johnson) hustle continues! The self-proclaimed ‘Rich B*tch’ is adding yet another line to her professional Hollywood resume. We’ve been sitting on this tid bit of information for a bit, gathering intel. Sources tell the Jasmine BRAND that the The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has launched her own production company, NeNe Leakes Production True Entertainment.

The 46-year-old’s production company was actually launched last year and guess which show was the first under its belt? I Dream of NeNe: The WeddingAs you’ll recall, BRAVO granted NeNe with her own special that featured the nuptials of both her and Greg Leakes (they married for the second time). The seven episodes chronicled NeNe in the weeks prior to the wedding, focusing on their family and wedding party. The season finale aired on October 27th.

In addition to having her production company involved, she also received credit as an executive producer, which is essential for creating shows. Our sources have also confirmed that NeNe is working on THREE new shows under her production company.

We’re told that the shows won’t be typical reality TV shows with women fighting and arguing for the cameras. Reportedly, one show in particular will be a dating type show, while the others will be docu-series format.


Apparently her production deal is significant for women in the entertainment industry. Daytime talk show host, Wendy Williams, has a similar production company. Last year, Wendy announced that she and her husband, manager Kevin Hunter, had formed Wendy Williams Productions, a production company focused on nonfiction. Our guess is in addition to developing and producing reality, she’ll also have on-camera presence. Reportedly, there are only five women, who started in reality TV, who have their own production companies.

In similar news, NeNe recently filmed a show with her close friend and bridesmaid, Diana Gowins. Reportedly, NeNe helped Diana, who is single, find a man. No confirmation on the name of the show, but were guessing Patti Stringer may have been involved.

    That’s great for her. I heard that she sent those text out to shutter the fact she was officially fired from Glee. In a effort to keep pace and still look solid she sent out those message. I still wish her the best go Ne Ne go get that money girl.

      Wow, that is what you call a shady compliment. “I heard…..” Shaking my DAMN head. Even if it is true, it is called PR. Go NE NE! If one door closes, kick open another one!

    This is one woman who knows how to make things happen. U can’t hate on her for that! She took her 15 mins and is making an empire out of it.
    She should have done Kandi’s play. It would have shown her range. (And I heard the play was wonderful!) Best of luck to her.

      I think you said it best “Tazzy” she took her 15mins of fame and turned it into millions. I also agree with you on her doing the play. I felt it was shady on her part to not do it and I heard the same thing that it turned out to be an awesome play. Glad for Kandi because she is doing her thing. I love how she is growing her empire and taking on other things outside of music.

      • Tazzy

        Yessss “Diva” ???????????????? Kandi is THAT CHICK! She knows how to work a dollar bill! These ladies need to take notice!
