NeNe Leakes is officially a drag queen, honey

Add this share

NeNe Leakes loves her gays, even when she baits them with homophobic slang, but “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” diva is trying to play nice this season. Also, she's morphed into a drag queen.

Leakes is in Las Vegas to open Season 7 as she explores her dislike of orgies as Mistress of Sensuality at Cirque du Soleil's “Zumanity” show. She steps over muscled performers sprawled all over the stage, verbally fluffs a shirtless audience member and let's out her sweaty inner drag queen with an outfit that only a Vegas queen like Liberace could appreciate.

So move over, Miss Lawrence and Derek J. We thought they nailed the gay in their hilarious romp through Atlanta to preview the new season. Honey, no. NeNe is back, her balls have dropped and she's ready to drag it out.
