“Housewife” NeNe Leakes becomes NBA coach?

WXIA

WXIA

The NBA season is still on hold but shoot, who needs ‘em? Atlanta Hawks player Damien Wilkins and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member NeNe Leakes are teaming up for a fun exhibition game Saturday to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta.

Leakes and producer Drumma Boy will serve as “celebrity coaches” for the Fan Fest, planned for 3 p.m. Saturday at Clark Atlanta University.

Karmella Daniel will sing the national anthem and Untitled, an R&B group backed by rapper Ludacris, will perform at halftime.

Scheduled to take the court will be Wilkins and some of his NBA buddies: Anthony Morrow, Chris Wilcox, Derrick Favors, James Harden, Jarrett Jack, Jeff Green, Jeff Teague, Joe Johnson, Jordan Crawford, Josh Smith, Lou Williams, MarShon Brooks, Mike Beasley, Rudy Gay, Shannon Brown, Solomon Jones, Travis Leslie and Trey Thompkins.

Leakes, billed as “Atlanta’s favorite outspoken Housewife and author,” does have some impressive court cred. During her short stint as an on-air contributor for WXIA, she shot hoops with producer Jermaine Dupri. Here’s a link to a story about that matchup.

Tickets start at $5 for student, up to $20 for VIP seats. See this link for information and to buy tickets.

Why do people give that big horse the time of day? Her 15 minutes are long gone. Didn’t she embarrass herself enough on the Apprentice?
