On the heels of the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s return to the airwaves, Nene is finding yet another way to cash in on her Housewives antics. The reality star recently tweeted a picture of a blinged-out “I’m Very Rich Bitch” t-shirt that she’s hawking for $150 a pop.
Apparently, Ms. Linnethia is feeling herself. After a confrontation with former friend and cast mate, Sheere Whitfield—who accused Nene of cutting her out of the profits on an appearance deal—Nene told Sheere she was just jealous because she was “really rich” and had “Donald Trump checks.”

On the next episode, Nene flew to Miami with Kandi and Cynthia to check out houses. According to Nene, she’s sick of living in Atlanta where she claims “haters” are constantly in her business. After touring a $9 million mansion, Cynthia encouraged Nene to buy the house, while Kandi doubted if Nene had enough money to afford such an estate.
Since appearing on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, Nene has not only raised her visibility, but she’s also been raking in more cash as well.
But is she “very rich”?
I have my doubts about Nene’s wealth and apparently, she is trying to lower expectations as well. On a recent appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Nene how rich she was, and Ms. Leakes shot back, “Only ignorant would go immediately to money,” and told Cohen she was “rich” in health and spirit.
What do you think? Will you be picking up one of these tees?
