Biography

As reality stars went, NeNe Leakes was one of the most unapologetic, confident, and brash personalities on television. Making onscreen pronouncements like "I don't keep up with the Joneses, I am the Joneses," she was the breakout star of Bravo's hit reality series "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" (2008- ), which followed privileged women in the Atlanta, GA metropolitan area as they juggled their personal, professional and social lives. Before Leakes stirred up controversy on the hit show, she was a social butterfly in the upscale Duluth area of the Southern city. Born on Dec. 13, 1967 in Queens, NY, Linnethia Monique Johnson grew up in Athens, GA. She had two children: Brice, from a previous relationship, and Brentt, whom she had with her realtor husband, Gregg Leakes. She first burst on the scene as one of the wives on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," which provided viewers with a peek into the lives of Atlanta's socialites as they went on luxurious shopping sprees, attended exclusive parties, and participated in shocking showdowns with each other.
