NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes turned an insult into a money-making opportunity by selling t-shirts and sweatshirts featuring her mugshots from an arrest in the early 1990s. The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star was inspired to wear her mugshots on a shirt after co-star Sheree Whitfield mentioned her old arrest for boosting clothes from a shopping mall.

"Growing up without my mother or father i experienced many growing pains but without them, i could not be who i am or have accomplished the things that i have today," NeNe wrote in an Instagram post showing her proudly wearing a black shirt featuring her mugshots. "Your past does NOT determine your future," she added.

She added: "i hope that i can inspire anybody to embrace and not be ashamed of what your past has made you become today! Thank you all so much for the love i received."

"From MUGSHOTS to MILLIONS," she wrote in another Instagram post on Tuesday.

The shirts are available in NeNe's Swagg Boutique on Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth, GA and online at swaggboutiqueonline.com.

    Shut up Nene. You sat there & let Kim call you a pill head on tv, but you can't stnd the sight of Porsha? Kim came to your home, started sht, broke sht, then left. I guess yall even now after your 2 choking attempts.

  • brownisback

    smh

  • Renee26

    What a way to capitalize...the shirts should say "my original face"

  • Renee26

    She's full of it...she won't even tell people what the issue is that she has with them...to be so blunt that should never be an issue...that's how you know she's full of ish

  • brownisback

    4 score and 5 noses ago

  • Quitedeliteful

    It's a no for me. I don't even want to see my own face on a shirt unless it's a family reunion...

  • Renee26

    DEAD!!!!!

  • Anunnaki

    Lol

  • Renee26

    I hope Sharee's man comes home and is EVERYTHING good for her. That will be the ultimate payback for NeNe hatin azz

  • wiseone

    Exactly - I was thinking the same thing.

  • MookieFly

    You know...I'm not gonna fight her on this. Owning up to your past is the hardest thing to do. The beginning of the year has taught me so much about owning your faults, even when you're just dealt shitty cards. Make that money Bullwinkle!

  • Lenora Minns Nealy

    Well, Nene, the same applies for Sharee's boyfriend. His past does not determine is future either.

  • MsPam

    Now she needs to put her sisters pictures on a shirt and explain why she doesn’t get along with them.

  • hottlanta

    I wanna see on the t-shirt a copy of those Dump checks she kept talking bout she was cashing as to make other folks jealous. Those checks belong to NBC. Because we know Dump doesn't write checks and if he did they don't clear the bank.

  • BingBangBoom

    Huh.... Your past can determine your future. She was lucky to get out of jail. Ask the people serving 25 to life or even the death penalty how bright there future looks. These celebs live in a different reality for some odd reason.

  • hottlanta

    We need to see what color is Greg real hair. He got the tri color black hair/gray beard confusion thing going.

  • Marlika

    She’s not the first to do this Kimora Lee’s dumb ass did it when she got arrested by NYPD many moons ago.

    And secondly I wish I would wear something with her ugly mug on it. ?

    The bitch is a hypocrite and has more excuses than a mofo going to jail about her past. ?

  • Yoni7

    She looks kinda decent in this pic. The mugshot......YIKES! #lookatgawd

  • Paulapuss

    That is just crazy, bedbug crazy sum shyt just needs to be left alone, unsaid or in your past. This is not making a statement it's making a fool of urself..........wrong move Msleakes who ever sanction this move is not a freind

  • Renee26

    She definitely lives in her own world....she came up off of her husband getting her off the pole and introducing her to a regular lifestyle. Had she not met Greg thirsty behind she would still be a bottom feeder stealing and selling puzzy

  • Renee26

    Because they know the REAL her

  • Renee26

    Bullwinkle LMAO

  • We Can Do This

    No class!

  • hottlanta

    Pure genius. Thought I would never live to see the day where the Gettysburg address would be incorporated to one's face.

  • brownisback

    *in my JJ voice*
    Well you know, what can I say

  • hottlanta

    I have always said she made her money off being a bully to black women. She hasn't got into the right white woman face yet and she knows it

  • Anunnaki

    Nene, lil kim and a host of others gonna get to the pearly gates, god gonna turn them around, like get from me, I dont know u

  • NeverSurprised

    I've never seen people so proud to BE jailbirds, to DATE jailbirds, to MARRY jailbirds, and to APPOINT jailbirds to mayoral advisory positions. Only in Atlanta.

  • Rayne

    Everything is acceptable now. Wow! I wish I would but I’ve never been to jail. I’m allergic ?

  • NeverSurprised

    None.

  • NeverSurprised

    Very clever!

  • joel adams

    Why would i ...nvm

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I cannot stand this woman!! She used to be kind of funny when RHOA first started, until she started making her own money and thinking she was above everybody else. I cant stand nothing about her azz now. From that damn parakeet azz face and dingy azz blonde wigs, to those big azz man hands and feet. I CANNUH!!

  • CaramelDrop

    I never watched a single solitary episode but NeNe is a definitive example of NO COUTH, hell, that should be the caption on the shirt.

    There is no pride in jail NeNe, none.... if you didn’t know, your reputation always proceeds you.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Tiny's daughter did this too so this is nothing new but she didn't sell them to the public, and why would I rock somebody else's mug shot anyway?

  • NeverSurprised

    All that I have accomplished and earned in business pales in comparison to having the respect of my son, and setting an honorable example for him. There is NOTHING that could ever make me advertise any behavior that would embarrass my family. NEVER.

    This woman will literally sell her soul for a dollar. No wonder her son is always in and out of jail. Look at who he has for a role model.

  • imright

    Nene coulda kept this thrifty lookin sweater ??... all it does is showcase how much plastic surgery she has gotten ??????????

  • imright

    shes not !!! trust !! she trying to fake like it tho??? FAKE PRIDE

  • Simone

    Why tag Porscha? Is she the only one that haven't blocked her ass?

  • Kemi

    Whatever! Not everything needs to be capitalized on. Wow how can this not be embarrassing for her family. Sheesh.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I nominate President and CEO of the Ms.Tackhead committee, NE NE Leakes.

  • Paulapuss

    Quite as it's kept not all family members want you to succeed or is happy for your success.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    No thanks Nene, I have my own mug shot.

  • Dowoop

    LMAO

  • Phyllis

    Ha... Right!!!

  • lQueenNefertiti

    That’s lace front... jezus!

  • Luv Pitties

    I couldn't put my finger on it but think you nailed it when you called it parakeet ??????

  • Afrigoddess

    Why do these ATL and NYC celebri-thots tilt their head so hard in their photos? Are their heads heavy or something? Is it supposed to be cute???

  • R Smith

    I can see her wearing her own "Mug" on a shirt. However, if I saw someone with this shirt on (women because we are gullible), I would think they are C.R.A.Z.Y. Everything "ain't for everybody!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I understand why she would rock her own mugshot, but I don't understand why anyone else would. She's not iconic or historically/socially relevant (e.g., Malcolm X, Huey Newton, Angela Davis). I would never.

  • Torae

    These women are so insecure? it’s funny...

  • Junkanoo

    Who would have thought when Mr Ed debut in the 60s that ?'should go on to be reality TV stars, comedians and owners of clothing stores liberty for all l say

  • Reina1718

    Cuz she need coins.. home shopping network dropped her

  • Reina1718

    She mite as well add her don to the shirt...sadly she taught him nothing

  • stav

    Her having a mug shot did not turn her into the nasty, insecure, bad nose job having, wannabe she has become. Sadly she's not ashamed of her past , but should be! Anytime you do wrong one should always have regret about it. What is really wrong, is that tacky cheap boutique she's advertising. It's so easy to loathe this person, she's extremely petty.

  • Yoni7

    If there is anything to EVER boycott......it's jail AND dumba$$ sh!t like this. I would NEVER promote such an article of clothing.
    I was just thinking the other day like......THESE women will NEVER be invited to the Image Awards. Not everyone that is on TV is star quality.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    No mother or gather must be tough. YIKES!!! No wonder shes so insecure. Her nasty attitude and entitled stuck up persona all stem from having no parents. WOW i see why she is the way she is. I'm not excusing it at all but it makes more sense to me now.

  • Bonita Johnson

    I wonder what crackhead or somebody old crippled blind auntie or great grandma from e.1999 is gonna rock this bs!!!! I would never wear a shirt with this broads face on it...NEVER not even if it was free!!! She too too old to be so stupid! Girl we thought u learned with that rape comment obviously not. Oh well I guess she is a dumb blonde wiggy....

  • Yoni7

    And even then, that's a no for me. LOL

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Nene I love u to death but u doing too much! Fur somebody who don’t care u clearly do and u not Kimora lee Simmons ok.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Say what???

  • R Smith

    Wow...they did? When?

  • NeverSurprised

    She should run-- not walk-- to "unclockable" Alonzo's hair salon. She is in dire need of his services. That fake hairline is dreadful. *in D'wight's voice*

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I heard his voice too

  • NeverSurprised

    They have been selling out the remainder of her inventory in the Clearance section for several months now. No new NeNe inventory for a very long time.

  • Reina1718

    After that rape joke...everything on sale now

  • Reina1718

    Yess its all on sale with nothing new coming out

  • Paulapuss

    It's the lace front squeeqing on their brain cells

  • Desiree Edwards

  • HIS4EVA

    We're still in shock from the news that Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus have officially…

  • tintin

  • MsPam

  • brownisback

    Since we're on the subject of Changing faces, not to be confused with the group, I thought this was appropriate https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7ecb66380cc791bfab5753a8a492dda1c5175dfc5f4e152770ce1fe83b50933c.jpg

    Hey jenie!!! Nene needs to humble herself. Her KIM, and Sheree

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Good for her.
    Ain't nobody Blackmailing or dragging me.

  • Shawty

    Now why in the hell would someone walk around with their mugshot on a shirt? For most that would be considered a low point in life. Why advertise that? Most folks try to hide it. Straight shenanigans!!!

  • MsPam

    Can we please get a new post?! I’m tired of looking at this face!

  • MookieFly

    I heard it had something to do with Martha Stewart. Becky with the good hair strikes again smh

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Nah, she does not want to be bullied. She had her past thrown in her face, in front of the entire world. She is "proving" to people that she does not care. But, she really does. Self Esteem issues.

  • HIS4EVA

    uh-uh u a lie!

  • Phyllis

    This is a shirt that she only needs to wear. Ain’t nobody buying this ish??

  • NicoleZee

    I have no idea why the world continues to celebrate and give attention to narcissists, psychos, criminals, and complete and total pieces of shit that shouldn't breathe! Sad.

  • brownisback

    lol

  • Trace da Ace

    Girl......NeNe.... now don't get me wrong, I am happy for your success and all that, but this shirt....its FUGLY pic....nothing to be proud about and flaunt....and I'm curios of how many folks will buy this mess.....and correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that 2 different mugshots...so she has been arrested more than once??? Anything to get yall's coins...lol

    Sorry, I didn't have my mid day nap and that you said you were here for the comments AND the lace front

  • IamAllnatural

    Through her growing pains, she still mean & miserable. I wouldn’t wear that if it was free!

  • Reina1718

    Lol right

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Didn't Tiny talk Zonnique out of making her own mugshot shirts and for the same reasons? Sorry Nene, just not creative enough.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Everytime I see him I hear Chris Rock in the back saying, "throw some sand on that n**ga!"

  • NeverSurprised

    She has been arrested 6 or 7 times. No joke.

  • brownisback

    lol

  • ShWa

    Oooo chile it's a mess although I do like the fact that Nene was able to beat the odds and make a good life for herself.

  • Blue

    Hahahaha

  • Vegas1989

    I'm with you on that...I can't with that Lace Front...SMH....Something is off...I keep staring at it for some odd reason.

  • Vegas1989

    If that's the case. Let me take some pictures doing some jail poses and put them on a shirt....I've never been to jail but I know how to pose the famous three jail house poses....LOL

  • Diva_woman

    I think Nene looked like Elise Neal a little bit before her surgeries. When I look back on season 1 of rhoa she looked like a normal human. Now her face and hair looks so unnatural. I guess with the new found fame she didn’t get the memo that it takes a while for those surgeries to settle so we’ve just seen some bad versions of her over these years. Time to stop though seriously

  • Diva_woman

    It’s his present though. He’s currently incarcerated

  • Vegas1989

    I'm glad that I didn't have no food in my mouth...LOL

  • Ozad

    who in the hell going to buy that!! the mugshots aint cute, they draw comparisons to your surgically enhanced face and the shirts look cheap!! I bet she want 49.99 for that mess.

  • Cannelle

    Best comment I've read here thus far. Haaaaa!

  • MookieFly

    Naw I'm just playin ? although on their cooking show, Martha looks like she wanted some of the rappers that come thru

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She doesn't want to be bullied but yet a is a Bully.... Zeta ... Chile ... Okay .... Believe what you want hun..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    All Narcissist ...

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Isn't that how bullies operate?
    They are deeply insecure and will get you first.......sometimes for nothing.
    Happy FounderZ Day!

  • 1BlueStar

    Didn't she steal that idea from Zonique, Tiny's daughter?? Besides, why would anyone other thand NeNe want a shirt with HER mugshot on it?

  • Ang

    Kimora did that years ago. It wasn't cute then and it isn't now. I don't know why anyone would want to wear a T-shirt with someone's mug shot on it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuup... It's still a no for me too. I hate them family reunion t-shirts!!!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Why would I want your face, a mugshot no less, plastered across my chest? This is stupid. Impress me when your own damn family BUYS this crap AND wears it. Now that's support.

  • K to the E to the A

    Only an egotistical person would so something like this.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    I wouldn't wear this crap.

  • Gone Too Far

    She’s doing all of this to prove a point to Sheree for her trying to shame her for having them, and it’s pointless because those sweatshirts are still not going to sell. No one wants to wear nene’s mugshot on their body. I don’t think anybody bought Zonnique’s either when she tried it too

  • Indies beauty

    Nene is pretty but that mugshot is hideous.

  • Karen Brady

    Foolishness.

  • Gingertee

    Kimora did it before the world knew who Zonique was

  • OvertheMississippi

    This is bout the stupidest thing I have seen in reality TV history.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    She's trying to ride out this "mee too" era! Her uber r#pe comments cost her some gigs!

    I saw her on Match Game with Alec Balwin, probably taped last year, and he doesn't care, neither does Andy Cohen with his New Jersey [inmates] franchise, among other low-brow reality TV characters.

    But, this is dumb, just keep giving back, doing good, feed the homeless, help kids in foster care facilities, etc. instead of these sorts of antics!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Beyoncé could sell a mugshot t-shirt, if she had one, make an album about the experience, and it would sell out!

    Kim K. West and Kylie could also pull it off! White Fandom is quite different than us, OK! We ain't wearing nobody's reality TV star's mugshot!

    But, Nene isn't on this level in spite of going from shoplifter to stripper to millions as a reality TV Star! But, her ego is way too large, and it is costing her!

  • Faux Gibbler

    How much are the shirts? $39.99?

  • Malcom Flex

    Broke nut. She bleached that photo LOL.

  • Ms Thang

    Tip told zonnique and her momma that those shirts were a bad idea but they did it anyway and now this fool is trying to sell them

  • Tena

    Who would want that shirt with her ugly ass face on it.

  • Gone Too Far

    I remember Tiny saying she didn’t have a problem with it and anyone who did should stfu. I just never understand what the point is. I understand self protection and all but why doesn’t she get security? Roaming airports with a gun in your purse though? And her mom defended her

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Same to you Zeta ... Hope you Zetas turned up....

  • Lolly Asher

    That shirt might as well say coolest monkey in the jungle.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Thats sooo f-ing dumb. More importantly why didn’t she get it expunged. Also close your damn legs! Not cute, nor is it cute at her age. I saw her Christmas shopping, and I was getting toys for my son and she was shopping for her granddaughter (everything was pink), and she kept starring. I’m like ok I know who you are woman, but you’re so childish and almost 100 I’m NOT A FAN. I do not like her fake keeping it real attitude. Let me add she’s a big girl. I’m tall but she’s like 6 ft 210 solid...Greg old ass is NOT lifting her.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    This heifer thinks WAY TOO MUCH OF HERSELF... You can take the rat out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of the rat!!! If she think she telling her open story by advertising then this bish hasn't grown up AT ALL.... She must've just made one in each color and size for herself cause I 'ONT SEE NOOOOOOO BODY BUYING THAT MESS!!! SHE MUST THINK she some black icon that put in work!! BYE!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I bet she think she has a HUGE FAN BASE not realizing she just entertainment for folk waiting on the next episode! Too her is about the money but to me she was embarrassment and NOT REPRESENTATION of woman of color... Ole weave wearing skunk-a-doodle!

    Yeah she's prettyUGLY!!!

  • Patty Anderson

    She came for Sheree's man, UNPROVOKED. Sheree snapped back, and rightfully so.....now she is mad and bringing up Sheree's son...meanwhile hers continues to make babies while being a thief and getting arrested for drugs. Sheree's son was arrested for smoking a J...Bryson is a full-on addict with MULTIPLE arrests, including cocaine possession. Speaking of monkey teeshirts.....perhaps she should add HIS mugshot to her collection? He has several.

  • Mona Stewart

    No thank you!

  • Indies beauty

    Lol, she has her days.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    We don't need an explanation about why you're selling this sweatshirt. We need an explanation as to why you keep going to horrible wig stylist...that lace front hairline isn't cute.

  • HelloToni

    Umm I doubt anyone is buying any of those shirts...

  • Natasha Adams

    Yeah she dropped. She got about 7 pieces still on clearance and when they sell out she will be gone. Go to HSN.com and look up Nene leakes. Those pieces been on clearance for months with no new collection. When they sell out, she will be gone. She's not mentioning it, but she knows already that she has been dropped.

  • Natasha Adams

    True she been dropped by HSN.com. No new collection in months, she knows she been dropped, she just hopes the public doesn't find out. But when HSN finishes clearing out her collection, she will be gone. Go to HSN.com and see. No new collection, those same old pieces. She just not saying until they say, she is not even promoting the Nene Leakes collection anymore, just that boutique, that's all she promoting these days.

  • Patty Anderson

    That photo is reminiscent of when she actually had edges.
