NeNe Leakes Debuts a New Nose

By ·

Unless you’ve completely sworn of watching television altogether, chances are at some point you’ve stopped to catch a few minutes of any one of The Real Housewives franchise series, if not tuned in to watch your favorite city on a weekly basis. Known for their catfights and over-the-top spending habits, regardless of the city they live in, the women of The Real Housewives are equally as recognized for all the surgery they have. And, most of them aren’t ashamed to admit it.

Case in point: NeNe Leakes, 48, who stars in Atlanta version of the show. Not one to shy away from her ever-evolving transformation, Leakes, who first had her nose done in 2010 to thin out her nostrils, confessed last week to having a secondary procedure. On Watch What Happens Live, she explains to host Andy Cohen that she underwent the surgery (just 13 days before) because of medical reasons, saying that cartilage was growing in her nose and the tip of her nose was touching the top of her lip when she smiled.

She went on to say that she never hides the fact that she’s had surgery. “I always keep it very, very real. I would never just do my nose for the purpose of doing my nose. The last time I did my nose it was because I didn’t love my nose and I wanted to do my nose to make it more beautiful for myself. I got my nose done because I can and I would get it done again if I wanted to.”

Leakes has also gone on the record saying she’s had a breast augmentationbreast lift and liposuction in the past, too.

Kudos to you, NeNe, for being so real and open about plastic surgery. And, despite what opinions people may have (she said she got a lot of comments about her new nose on social media), we think it’s great that you aren’t ashamed of making yourself a more beautiful version of you.
