Active in the Atlanta society scene, Nene Leakes resides in Duluth after being evicted from her rental home in the Stonebrier at Sugarloaf gated community on Sugarloaf Parkway, which is approximately 40 minutes northeast of downtown Atlanta. She shares her busy life with her husband, Gregg, a successful real estate investor and business consultant. The affectionate couple has two sons, namely Brice and Brentt. Aiming to motivate women around the globe, NeNe has donated her time working for various foundations. She has also founded The Twisted Hearts Foundation, an advocacy project to make people aware about the issue of domestic violence against women. This social butterfly is never one to sit still, and she has planned ahead to ensure a successful future for herself and her family. It must have been the influence of her husband, since NeNe has decided to have her very own business as well: to open a booming luxury boutique hotel.

NeNe Leakes is one of the housewives on Bravo TV’s docu-drama series The Real Housewives of Atlanta where she was once good friends with co-star Kim Zolciak but are now embattled in a feud. The series, which earned her a Bravo A-List Award for "Guiltiest Reality Pleasure" in 2009,follows five women from Atlanta’s social elite as they cope with their busy home lives and promising careers. The glamorous southern belles will show that life in their turf is no easy feat, since they have to prove that they are not just housewives, but ambitious and classy entrepreneurs as well. The series expands the success brought about by its predecessors, the famed The Real Housewives of Orange County and The Real Housewives of New York. With the series being brought to the exclusive Atlanta areas, there’s no doubt that these ladies will show everyone what it takes to stand out as a real housewife in the south.
