NeNe Leakes’ TV news debut

neneReal Housewives of Atlanta cast member NeNe Leakes is getting a new dose of exposure starting this week, as a WXIA-TV contributor.

The NBC affiliate stressed to Buzz a while back that Leakes is not to be considered a “journalist” but rather, an addition to the station’s entertainment offerings. NBC’s Bravo airs the “Housewives” shows, making this project something of a family affair.

The partnership gets off the ground this week with Leakes’ encounter with artist Jermaine Dupri. In a clip on the WXIA Web site the two shoot hoops while talking about…shooting hoops.

“I am a good basketball player,” Leakes announces, slipping out of her heels to demonstrate. The clip runs a little over two minutes and she does appear to sink one.

“Too bad I have on a dress,” she laments after missing some shots. “If I didn’t have on a dress, I’d make it happen for y’all.”

The action takes place at Dupri’s studio, and he explains that artists who need to take a break from recording can play …

NeNe Leakes has a new nose and has been appearing in a play. The reviews – of the nose – aren’t great.

“I think @NeNeLeakes might have just committed a Jennifer Grey,” a Twitter post from a user named Heidi Mara reads.

“I like your new nose,” reads a tweet from someone calling him or herself Return of Cirque. “Where did you buy it?”

Those are the nicer comments.

RadarOnline.com says the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member is on nose job #3 and has other work done.

“Her friends and family are worried that she will get addicted to plastic surgery, but sadly the producers of the show are not discouraging because they think it adds some drama for the fans,” the site says, quoting unnamed sources.

Has NeNe the Housewife hit a rough patch?

293.ad.NeneLeakes.RlHWAtlRn.120408

NeNe Leakes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” either is having trouble at home or is working hard at boosting her brand.

Maybe both.

A RadarOnline.com story says that ever since her son, Bryson Bryant, was arrested on a drug charge in Gwinnett County, things have been icy at Chez Leakes.

“The arrest really upset NeNe as she knows her son is hanging out with a bad crowd,” said the report, which says young Bryant has dropped out of college and is now working as a club promoter. “It has put pressure on her relationship with her husband, Greg Leakes, who is not Bryson’s real father as they both know that he’s still drinking and smoking with his buddies.”

The quote most likely to get the side-eyes rolling in Atlanta: “NeNe perceives herself as a real socialite in Atlanta and she does not like the fact that Bryson’s arrest generated bad publicity for her and she is worried that he might get into more trouble in the future.”

And here’s the money shot: “It might make …

NeNe the “Housewife” bails on Fox

nene-leakesNeNe Leakes, a cast member on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” spiked an interview with a local Fox News affiliate in New York just before it was to begin, TMZ reports.

Leakes has been keeping her Twitter followers updated on her every move during her trip to promote her book and the show with posts like, “Still grinding in rainy NYC! Book signing in Harlem today! Hue-man bookstore at 6 p.m.! Show some love New York.”

She hasn’t made any mention of the scotched show, but “sources on the set tell TMZ that she realized it was a FOox show just a few minutes before her appearance,” the celeb site reported. It also said witnesses overheard her saying “she hates the network” and was troubled by a recent report by Fox 5 Atlanta.

Leakes made unwanted headlines recently after her son Bryson Bryant was arrested for a minor pot possession charge in Gwinnett County.

She’s tackled that matter head-on, tweeting on Wednesday, “I know my parenting job is never done but tough love is ordered …
