Could NeNe Leakes be the next Martha Stewart? She seems to thinks so. After her successful run with the cast of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” a Broadway hit in the musical “Cinderella” and a clothing line on HSN, Leakes is building her empire one move at a time.
Leakes is now getting into the lifestyle industry, set to design furniture and home accessories. The reality TV star came up with the idea while decorating and furnishing her recently purchased mansion in Georgia. In order to get the best furnishings for her new place, Leakes set out for High Point, NC known as a furniture design center.
“Having a furniture shopping day in North Carolina with buyer #stephaniejames @allenandjamesID. If you’re looking to shop for furniture in High Point North Carolina area, this is yo girl. She will show you the ins & outs of furniture buying. I am now ready to start my own furniture & lighting collection! Look out world!” Leakes captioned a photo posted to her site.
The business savvy Leakes is shopping her furniture line to merchandisers and has already received offers, according to TMZ. She has yet to choose a merchandiser, but HSN may be at the top of her list as the two have a successful partnership with Leakes’ clothing line.
