NeNe Leakes channels her inner supermodel for her Lip Sync Battle this Thursday. The 48-year-old reality star didn’t look to the likes of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford or Christy Turlington for inspiration but instead to the Grand Dame of drag- Miss RuPaul herself.

Donning a platinum blonde up-do, Leakes sashays her little heart out as shirtless male dancers and drag queens back her up to Ru’s smash hit, “Supermodel (You Better Work).” And work she did. Her opponent, fellow reality star Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best, will definitely have to hit a home run to beat Leakes.

It’ll be interesting to see if Ru watches and comments about Leakes’ performance. The RuPaul’s Drag Race creator recently called the Spike TV show “a poor rip off of our show.” The shade is real folks.

Check out the preview clip of this week’s Leakes vs Chrisley battle below.

As with any season premiere of any of the Housewives franchise, the thing I look forward to most is seeing the new taglines. The one-liners typically highlight that Housewives season-long journey. In some cases though, it’s just an excuse for the ladies to get sassy and throw shade. The Real Housewives of Atlanta have definitely mastered the latter.

Usually new Housewives fumble with their first tagline and that’s certainly the case with newbie Kim Fields. Had she not referenced her sitcom roots, I would’ve ranked her intro at the bottom. Phaedra Parks, has never a favorite of mine on RHOA but I picked hers as the best.

Bravo’s Georgia peaches return for Season 8 on Sunday, November 8. Check out my rankings below and weigh in afterward.

NeNe Leakes To Appear On RHOA Season 8 After All

In: Donovan, TV Shows

She’s baaaaaaack!!! It looks like NeNe Leakes and Bravo aren’t quite ready to part ways permanently just yet.

Back in June, the 47-year-old reality star revealed she wouldn’t be returning for Season 8 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Many speculated financial compensation was the reason why. I guess Andy Cohen found money somewhere, because NeNe is back.

NeNe Leakes Books Another Broadway Gig

In: Donovan, The Arts

It appears that NeNe Leakes is doing just fine since leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The 47-year-old reality star just booked another Broadway gig.

After making her Broadway debut as the wicked stepmother in Cinderella, Leakes will now torment the murderesses of Cook County Jail. She’ll play Matron ‘Mama’ Morton in the long-running musical, Chicago. Queen Latifah brought the character to life on the big screen in 2002 and earned an Oscar nomination in doing so.

Chicago is currently celebrating its 19th year on Broadway. If you’re interested in checking out NeNe on stage, her four-week run will go from November 23 until December 20. Do you think Leakes is perfect for the role? Why or why not?

NeNe Leakes & Kim Zolciak Bravo Show Canceled

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It’s a sad, sad, sad day for Real Housewives of Atlanta fans.

The reuniting of NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak for a new reality series was music to Bravo viewers’ ears when the network announced The Road to Riches several months ago. The show would’ve featured the two frenemies on a road trip adventure from Atlanta to Los Angeles. Sadly, it’s no longer happening. Oh so close, and yet so far. Find out why below.

NeNe Leakes Leaves The Real Housewives Of Atlanta

In: Donovan, TV Shows

A Georgia Peach has left the building. Not just any one, but the Big Kahuna.

After years of teasing her exit, Linnethia Monique Leakes aka NeNe Leakes finally pulled the trigger. The 48-year-old reality star announced she’s leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Not only is she the biggest star of the series, but arguably the network’s largest name. RHOA will never be the same again.

This was definitely a hard decision for me,” Leakes tells PEOPLE. “Me and my husband [Gregg Leakes] have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”

When they were BFFs, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak provided some of the most hilarious moments on the first few seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Their fights were equally as riveting and epic. There was a moment in time when the two couldn’t even be in the same room together. However, the two buried the hatchet a couple of seasons ago.

Personally, I believe Leakes was open to reconciling once she started to achieve success outside the Housewives franchise. I like NeNe but she doesn’t do well when others do better than her. Now that she sorta has the upper hand with Kim and is enemy No. 1 on RHOA, I can see why she agreed to this.

Bravo announced a new spinoff titled NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches which follows the ladies driving from ATL to LAX. Hopefully, this ends up better than their last road trip. Remember when the two almost came to physical blows on a bus headed to Miami?

“Atlanta’s ‘most driven’ housewives…drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure,” the network said in a statement. “The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy.”

The network also revealed other programs coming in the future. Find out what new and returning shows are on deck.

If you’re an avid watcher of Bravo’s Housewives franchise, this bit of news might be a bit shocking. Other than Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin rekindling their friendship, this duo’s reunion is the one least expected by everyone. After five seasons of back and forth declarations of love and biting insults, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak seem to have buried the hatchet. Question is… for how long.

In Touch reports that the long-time frenemies made peace at the recently-taped Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 5 reunion. Since then, the two had a heart to heart conversation and reached peace. Leakes even invited Zolciak to her upcoming wedding. SAY WHAT? I’m truly in shock. The skeptic in me wonders what’s the motivation behind this.
