NeNe Leakes is the breakout star on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
As fans await next week's season finale of the series, the large-breasted reality star spoke to People Magazine about a number of topics, including the recent discovery that her mother had lied to her about the identity of her real father.
Were you shocked to learn that Curtis wasn’t your biological father?
I was extremely broken up because Curtis has always been the person I have known to be my father. I’ve always had this idea of being a daddy’s girl and I always looked up to him, even though he wasn’t always around and he wasn’t a great dad. It was devastating to know that someone would write a letter to me and say that he’s really not your father. I couldn’t believe someone would keep a secret for so many years.
Is everyone excited about the show’s success?
I think everybody is. We all have different fans and I just happened to be the most popular one of the housewives and why is that, I don’t know. I think that a lot of people really appreciated me being able to say what I feel. But the other girls, they have their fans and everybody is pretty happy. All the girls are excited about it. It was a great platform for us to put our businesses out there and to put ourselves out there.
