Nene Leakes is busy building her empire. The highest paid BRAVO Housewife announced that she has signed with global brand licensing agency Beanstalk for her very own line of affordable apparel and accessories.
“While the fame of reality television characters is often short-lived and fleeting, NeNe Leakes has displayed versatility that has enabled her to transition from being a Real Housewives personality to a featured television star on Glee. NeNe’s multifaceted personality and aspirational style will translate well into products that will emotionally connect with her fans,” said Beanstalk’s President and CEO Michael Stone.
Kimora Lee Simmons has announced that she is no longer apart of the Baby Phat Brand. The model, mom, and mogul explained how she is ready to focus on non-phat affiliated ventures.
“It’s time for me to move on and further expand my other businesses and create a new phenomenon. I adore all those who have faithfully been with me since the beginning. I’m forever dedicated to my family, fans, and customers. My inspiration has always come from the fabulous women who have been with me through the years as we’ve grown from young party girls to power players!”
It is not yet known what her future plans are but what is known is that she currently taping the fourth season of Life in the Fab Lane.
PR wise it will be interesting to see how Baby Phat survives without Kimora.
