When NeNe Leakes first made her appearance on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she became an instant star. Fans loved her bold personality and penchant for speaking her mind freely. She was also unashamed of her past as a single mother working as a stripper to make ends meet. But what she didn’t come forward with was her past criminal record. Back when she was 25 years old, Leakes was charged with one misdemeanor and three felony counts of “theft of services” for ripping off her phone company. Pleading guilty to all four counts, Leakes received three years’ probation and ordered to repay $2,650. But over the next couple years, the future reality star was busted on several probation violations. When her old mugshot resurfaced, Leakes came clean on twitter and said she’s proud of herself for turning her life around.
