Looks like reality star NeNe Leakes has spoken things into existence! This month has been nothing short of the many surprises she has kept up her sleeve. From the last few episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene has left subtle clues for her us to whether she will be taking over TV screens in the near future.

This week, she announced that she’s having an exclusive sit down with E! News host Giulana Rancic. In the interview airing next Monday, she will be talking about her journey from stripper to celebrity, RHOA, and the struggles of balances her family life and work.
Check out a few excerpts from the E! interview.
On her first night as an exotic dancer:
I remember going home and having something like $1,000 and thinking ‘I made $1,000 in one night. Baby we are doing this tomorrow night.’ Like it became an addiction.
Her childhood and how her mother left her in care of her Aunt and Uncle:
And she took us to my aunt’s in Athens and she just never came back and got us.
On the moment when she realized she could no longer be in an abusive relationship:
He’d been calling and calling. I would never answer the call, so he knocked on our door and came – just bust right on in.
On the hardest part of being in reality television:
The hardest part about me doing this show and having my life put out there is my child. My oldest son was going into 12th grade and he could no longer be like the typical teenager.
On being a role model:
I’m very proud that there’s a ton of African American women who really look up to me and I’m very proud of that. I’m very proud to represent the strong black woman.
Sidebar, we’ve been doing a bit of twitter snooping and she’s also shared that she’ll be doing a cameo appearance on ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’ and creating a clothing line for curvy women.
The one-hour interview is set to air Dec. 16 at 10 p.m on E!
