NeNe Leakes Goes Makeup-Free to Promote Comedy Show (VIDEO)


She may not be a full-fledged Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member anymore, but NeNe Leakes is as real as they come!

The TV personality-turned-stand up comedian took to Instagram on April 11 to share an important announcement with her many fans, and she was so psyched she just couldn’t be bothered to put on makeup.

Turns out the former RHoA star sold out not one but two upcoming comedy shows in Charlotte, North Carolina, so she wanted to express her gratitude to her fans and team live from her “damn bed” in Atlanta.

“No hair and no makeup,” she says with a laugh as the camera focuses on her fresh face. “Get your life right now.”

After a difficult day mourning the loss of her friend, NFL player Will Smith, NeNe explains her husband, Gregg, encouraged her to get out of bed and tackle the new journey ahead.

“I’m amazed and I’m so damn grateful for this. This is something totally new for me,” the aspiring comic says. “We’re selling tickets everywhere we go and it’s just amazing.”

NeNe goes on to thank her agents and manager for all their love and support before signing off with a preemptive warning for fans not to bug her about her beatless look.

“Yes I don’t have no hair and no damn makeup so just get your damn life right now,” NeNe declares. “I’m just grateful.”
