Well move over She by Sheree, and watch out for NeNe Leakes. It’s been reported that she’ll be the highest-paid performer on the upcoming fifth season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta; she has a recurring role on Fox’s Glee as Coach Roz Washington and a role in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming NBC sitcom The New Normal; she is an author and TV magazine correspondent; and she was a contestant on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice.
The 44-year-old mother of two announced that she has signed with global brand licensing agency Beanstalk to make her move into fashion. Beanstalk says in an announcement tied to Licensing Expo 2012, now going on in Las Vegas, that it intends to “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.”
No deals are signed yet, but Beanstalk will look to license a range of consumer products built around fashions that will appeal to the women who have watched her evolve on the show.
Do your THANG NeNe!!
