I’m sure “Real Housewives of Atlanta” breakout cast member Nene Leakes is more than happy to be the face of Ebony magazine’s “Money & Power” issue. After all, the reality TV star, and now legitimate actress, is very rich.
Showing off her new money, Nene covers the December/January issue wearing nothing but diamonds which are covering her body in a bath tub while she sips champagne as part of the mag’s annual Power 100 List.
The EBONY Power 100 spotlights African Americans who personify “power” in all its manifestations—strength, focus, commitment and determination—those who innovate, elevate and shape the world in new and different ways. EBONY Power 100‘s 21 categories include “The Anointed,” “The Environmentalists,” “The Powerbrokers,” “The Thought Leaders” and “The Young Gifted & Black.”
The 2012 Power 100 list will appear in the Dec./Jan. issue of EBONY on newsstands the week of Nov. 5.
I imagine Nene is a part of the “Star Appeal” category with her RHOA gig, her recurring role on “Glee” and her permanent part as a cast member on “The New Normal,” not to mention her shoe line with ShoeDazzle. She’s definitely getting her hustle on.
Other people included in Ebony’s Power 100 List are Attorney General Eric Holder, Cam Newton, Catherine Brewton, Cathy Hughes, Cee Lo Green, Debra Lee, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Jamie Foxx, Jay-Z & Beyonce Knowles, President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Rihanna, Lebron James, Mara & Salim Brock Akil, Kerry Washington, Joan Smalls, Karen Civil, Kevin Durant, Shonda Rhimes, Oprah, Toni Morrison, Wendy Williams, Tamron Hall, Steve Harvey, Robin Roberts, and Tyler Perry.
