Exotic dancers are more proficient at controlling their emotions to avoid the temptations of falling for every man who tosses a dollar their way. That explains why, when real love does come along, their unions tend to withstand the test of time.

Married for 14 years, the Leakes are ready to renew their vows again, In Touch Weekly reports exclusively.

“This time around, we’ll work together as a team more,” NeNe told In Touch.
