NeNe Leakes leaving “RHOA”?
Could NeNe Leakes be thinking about leaving the series that made her a household name?
It’s no secret this has been a difficult season of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for NeNe. Now, it seems that the “realest” housewife has had her fill of all the drama.
I’m not really interested in joining the next season," she said during a recent interview with Zap2It.com. "I’m just not really interested right now."
Don’t worry about NeNe, though. The reality TV star said she’ll be focusing her energy on handbag and shoe lines that she’s developing.

2 Live Crew’s Luke goes political
How would you like the front man of 2 Live Crew running your city? If you’re a resident of Miami-Dade County in Florida, consider yourself warned. Luke Campbell is indeed considering running for public office.
“If Carlos Alvarez gets recalled, I will seriously think about running for Miami-Dade County mayor, and should I win, I would make every day I am in office a reality show. Every day, Miami-Dade residents will have transparency,” Luke wrote on his Miami New Times blog.
One can only hope that Luke has matured since his days of explicit lyrics and lewd music videos. He seems to have loftier goals these days.
“Our community has been divided for too long. If there is one person who can unite voters from every nationality in Miami Dade, it is Uncle Luke,” he wrote.
