NeNe Leakes isn’t hating on her petite sisters, but the founding member of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Talls Team loves her height.
“I think tall is beautiful,” said NeNe, who’s just under 5’11, over 6-feet in heels.
NeNe, who described herself as “legally single,” is taller than her ex-husband Gregg Leakes. However, that’s not a problem for the “New Normal” actress.
“I’ve dated shorter guys,” she told Conan O’Brien. “Shorter guys tend to have that boss mentality, so they like to talk to taller women, just makes them feel tall. I don’t know.”
While she doesn’t seem to have a strict height requirement when it comes to men, NeNe made it clear that she’s not interested in dating any broke men.
On the most recent season of her hit Bravo reality show, NeNe was wined and dined by business partner John Kolaj. The pizza mogul showered her with expensive purses, shoes and other gifts.
However, she said potential partners don’t necessarily have to be wealthy, but she’s not looking to support a man.
“They gonna need their own money, now. They can’t have mine. They do need to bring something to the table. They don’t need to be super-rich, but they need to be financially stable,” she said.
