NeNe Leakes is a lover of fashion and all things fancy, and now that’s she’s “rich, bitch!” our gal will use any excuse to shop. She may not be married to a football player like her on-again, off-again pal Kim Zolciak, but NeNe still wanted to look her very best on Super Bowl Sunday.
To NeNe, looking your best goes beyond rocking some cute clothes. As we’ve told you before, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star loves her shoes. For Sunday’s festivities, NeNe stopped by one of her favorite stores to stock up on some new (and super-pricey) kicks. She posted a photo to Instagram of herself and pal Mynique Smith dropping serious dough on fancy footwear.
“Doing what I love 2 do #shoeshopping #redbottoms #shoewhore @myniquesmith #nyc #superbowl,” NeNe wrote along with two photos of her and her friend shopping like pros at Christian Louboutin. In one photo, NeNe holds a pair of white, spiky heels while Mynique tries on a pair of beige peep-toe pumps. In the second shot, NeNe poses with what we can only guess were her pricey purchases of the day — the white spiky pair, the same pair in a light blue/green, and a pair of animal-print sneakers. Get it, girl!
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last month, NeNe acknowledged her fondness for expensive shoes, especially Louboutins, noting that her most expensive pair from the footwear designer set her back a cool $5,000. And while NeNe’s shoe habit may seem excessive, she joked that it was all Andy Cohen’s fault! “When we’re shooting we have to be fabulous honey or we’ll get an email from Andy Cohen,” she said with a laugh.Are you surprised that NeNe bought more shoes last weekend?
