NeNe Leakes is certainly a “very rich bitch” these days and she can thank her ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reality show beginnings for her new found fame. Not only has NeNe landed a reoccurring role on Fox’s ‘Glee’ but also a guest spot on new show, ‘The New Normal”, on NBC.

During her recent interview with The Insider NeNe dishes on why she’s been so successful and if it wasn’t for her ‘The Real Housewives wouldn’t be a success. Here’s what she had to say.

“Housewives does really well because of NeNe Leakes….in the franchise of the Real Housewives, we are the only brown girls. You can always turn on the TV and see those Beverly Hills girls, those Miami girls, those New Jersey girls, your New York girls and you still sorta kinda get the same flavor, but when you see the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’, you are getting a group of brown girls.
