“Real Housewife” NeNe Pens An Autobiography

In the downtime between the first and second season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” NeNe Leakes, who you may remember as Anderson Cooper’s biggest fan, spent time writing an autobiography. The memoir, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way, hits bookshelves August 11 and is destined to be amazing. While the Amazon description is a little dry (”NeNe charts her journey from family black sheep to single mother to making good and realizing her dreams”), there is mention of juicy gossip hidden in the 240 pages. Specifically, it’s alleged that NeNe dishes on fellow “Housewife” Kim Zolciak’s stripper past! Before she became the whitest-housewife-who-is-black-on-the-inside, Kim supposedly performed in Atlantic City under the name “Barbie.” I’m wondering if the book will be brought up in the season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” this week. If it is mentioned, yet another season of “Housewives” will be marked by a book as the biggest driving plot. Then maybe Kim and Danielle Staub of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” will meet and become besties since books ruined both their lives! Fingers crossed. [NY Daily News]
