Why is the Real Housewives Of Atlanta Franchise so popular? If you ask HBIC NeNe Leakes, the show would be nothing without her! Nina Parker of The Insider sat down the confident reality vixen and this was her response:
Well A, because of Nene! [laughs] Housewives does really well because of Nene Leakes and what I have to say is, 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 [tune into] the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’, you are getting a group of brown girls.
She continues, :”I just think that we are entertaining, and with us, we are not so plastic surgery. I think when you turn on the TV and see these other franchises, everybody is just so plastic! [Their] lips and faces are just pulled so tight and we are just regular girls. We’re really keeping it real and I’m always so surprised when people say, ‘Are you guys scripted?’ We’re so not scripted, we are just a disaster [laughs]. We just get up there and do it! We don’t mind the cameras! We’re all very open to the cameras, so we make a great team.”
NeNe also goes on to explain why she will NEVER be friends with Kim Zolciak again and why her star continues to rise above all the others!
