NeNe Leakes: I Was A Stay At Home Housewife Once

Posted: Updated:

Real Housewife of Atlanta NeNe Leakes was sure about one thing before she re-married ex-husband Gregg:  There was no way she was getting married again without some of the proper paperwork for insurance.

"You have to get a pre-nup, there's nothing with it. People look at it like it's a bad thing and it's not," says NeNe, whose wedding preps were videotaped for all the world to see on the Bravo reality series, 'I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.'

NeNe tells Steve Edwards and Maria Sanson that getting a pre-nup is the smartest thing she could have done for her marriage, but not because it keep him beholden to her.

"[It doesn't] necessarily keep him in check because I wouldn't want him to not have if I wasn't with him. He's smart. He's successful," she explained. "I just want the pre-nup to lay things out in case something were to happen. It's a smart move."

In 2008, Leakes made her first appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. After the first season, she co-wrote with Denene Milner the book Never Make The Same Mistake Twice. Leakes has been apart of the cast for all six seasons.

Leakes plays sassy secretary Rocky Roades in the NBC comedy The New Normal. Ryan Murphy cast Nene on his series Glee in the third season in a recurring role as synchronized swim coach and Olympic bronze-medalist Coach Roz Washington.

In 2011, Leakes was a contestant on the eleventh installment of Donald Trump's NBC series Celebrity Apprentice. During the tenth episode of Apprentice, after arguments with fellow cast member Star Jones, Leakes walked off the show. Leakes failed to win any money for her selected charity, "My Sister's House".

‘I Dream Of NeNe: The Wedding' airs Tuesday night at 9:00pm on Bravo.
