Nene Leakes had a quaint date night with husband Gregg Leakes at their home last week. But a photo she shared of herself with armpit length blond hair and an off-the-shoulder black and shimmery gown had fans talking for all the wrong reasons.
“A nite at Casa Leakes wit Mr Leakes 🍷🍸,” “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star captioned her Thursday, Sept. 5, Instagram post.
The image was shared on an “RHOA” fan account which raved of Nene, “SIS! #NeneLeakes is SNATCHED and bodied! 👏🏾😍🔥 #RHOA.”
But followers in the comments section were not as delighted by what they saw, joaning on the longtime Bravolebrity’s wig, which they compared to frienemy Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s hair units — especially those the ex-“RHOA” star wore in early seasons. Detractors also dissed Nene for apparently editing the photo.
“When do we see Nene with darker wigs? 🤢”
“When Nene gonna stop cosplaying as Kim Z?”
“Kim called she wants her season 1 wig back sis!”
“Snatched by photoshopping and facetune💅🏾”
“Snatched where? please stop gassing her body shape…..embrace the fact that she is an ODDY BODY!!!”
It’s not the first time Nene has faced these kinds of criticisms. The star was previously compared to Zolciak in August when she shared with fans the new wig that made her declare, “my Wig game has totally changed!”
Fans were not impressed with the unit like Nene was, however, and railed against her in the comments by saying she was attempting to look like Zolciak.
“Kim Z did say you were trying hard to look like her. At the time I didn’t see it but yea…..”
“Wow never thought I’d see the day with Nene wearing Kim Zolciak wigs🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣”
“it looks good, but Kim Z always says you copy everything she has & now you have the same hair too 🤷🏼♀️”
One remark led Nene to hit back and say, “You mad? Cry me a river b—hhhhhhh.”
But while the clapback was in full effect that time, she was silent when accused of editing her face on a picture that was snapped by her stylist Troi Anthony during an impromptu photo shoot that same month.
“All that airbrush but forgot the hands…😬”
“Nice picture but it’s too much photoshopping or too much plastic surgery.”
Nice pic @neneleakes but way 2 much airbrush, so much can’t tell the difference between u and the carpet..”
