Nene Leakes creating a fashion line
Many people know Nene Leakes for her outrageous personality and ability to get into fights with pretty much anyone on the hit reality TV show the "Real Housewives of Atlanta," but her new gig is a little more fashionable. Ebony Magazine reports the reality TV star-turned-returning guest on "Glee" is now venturing out to create her own line of women's urban clothes.
According to the news outlet, Leakes has her sights set on fashion and she has already found a partnership with the licensing agency Beanstalk, which has confirmed it intends to pair with Leakes. The company reports the new endeavor should be an easy one for Leakes, who has developed quite a love for high fashion over the past decade.
"[This clothing line will] leverage Nene's position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories, designed to empower women to walk into a room and 'own it' - like Nene herself," the brand said in a statement.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Stone, president and CEO of Beanstalk, believes Leakes has lasting power and that people of all races and sizes will flock to her designs.
"While the fame of reality television characters is often short-lived and fleeting, NeNe Leakes has displayed versatility that has enabled her to transition from being a Real Housewives personality to a featured television star on Glee, Stone told the publication. "NeNe's multifaceted personality and inspirational style will translate well into products that will emotionally connect with her fans."
