Are You Ready for Fashions by Nene Leakes?

I only used "fashions" in my title as a joke. I don't like the word "fashions" FASHIONS! It sounds country to me whenever I hear it, but maybe it's just me *shrugs* Anyhoo, Linnethia "Nene" Leakes is still making major moves including starting a new clothing line according to the Hollywood Reporter:

Her goal is to be the “Queen of TV,” and now NeNe Leakes also wants to be a princess of fashion. She will reportedly 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. 

On Tuesday, 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. 

Generally, I don't cosign celebs starting clothing lines
in fact, this is how I usually feel about it...

but surprisingly I'm not really mad at this. Nene definitely has an eye for what looks great on her so I could see this working out. Continue reading the rest of this story HERE.
