NeNe Leakes book Never Make the Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way, which she co-wrote with Denene Millner came out, August 11, read a review here.
Andy Cohen read a passage on Watch What Happens Live that’s piqued my interest, so I’ll be picking up a copy and reviewing it for sure! Here’s the bit that Andy read:
“Kim wouldn’t know how to make a dime if you slapped her with a bucket of change. Every dollar that chick has is somebody else’s husband’s money.”
I just hope the entire book is about Kim and Sheree. It sounds like it was written by recording NeNe talking about sh*t, then giving it a slight edit. If that’s the case, I can’t wait.
NeNe’s tryin’ to build a brand that will last, and she’s bluntly stated that, which isn’t a smooth strategy. Bethenny is successfully building a brand, but she doesn’t talk about building a brand, she just does it.
Here’s what NeNe’s said:
“I’m really just trying to build a brand, and it’s really important. I want longevity, I don’t want to just be a reality star. You know, I was a business woman when they found me and I want to continue to be a business woman.”
I think what NeNe’s missing is a signature cocktail, like Bethenny. She certainly likes to drink them. I’d definitely order up a NeNeMartini.
Below are the author’s blurbs for NeNe and Denene:

Will Oprah call NeNe? Anderson Cooper’s been giving NeNe the cold should for a while.
