NeNe Leakes

Reality star and actress Linnethia “NeNe" Leakes was born on December 13, 1966. Her mom had five children and sent Leakes and her brother to be raised by an aunt, leaving Leakes to struggle with abandonment issues. Best known as a member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast, Leakes also competed on Season 18 of “Dancing With the Stars” with pro partner Tony Dovolani and on Season 11 of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” but quit the show. She acted on Broadway in “Cinderella” and on TV in “Glee” and “The New Normal,” and in the reality spin-off “I Dream of NeNe,” and co-hosted “Fashion Police.” She was married to husband Gregg Leakes from 1997-2011 and remarried him in June 2013 following a brief divorce. They have one son, Brentt. Leakes also has another son, Bryson Bryant, from a previous abusive relationship. When she split from her abuser, she turned to stripping to support her son as a single mom. Leakes is a proud “glam’ma” to Bryant’s children. Read more about Leakes in her memoir, “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice.”
