With a mouth like her's, NeNe Leakes needs to have her own talk show, and apparently she thinks so too. Reports are saying the "Celebrity Apprentice" drama queen is about ready to take Oprah's spot after the Queen of Talk leaves her daytime spot.

"She was encouraged when she did some slots with local television stations in Atlanta and she thinks that she has what it takes to be the next Oprah or Wendy Williams," a source said. "Ironically, NeNe does not really like Wendy Williams but she respects what she has done and she believes that she can be even more successful than she has been."

Right now NeNe is involved with so much and is certainly making a reputation on reality television. If things continue to go her way, she just might make it to the spot she's heavily eyeing.

"'Celebrity Apprentice' has given her more confidence but she sees moving to Miami as key to her success and now that her marriage is all but over she is ready to commit but she wants the right project to be in place," the source adds. "NeNe really wants to brand herself with her own clothing, make-up and hair products lines, and she is confident she can pull it off. And with Oprah's show coming off the air soon she believes the time is right for a new black female talk show host too."

I don't understand why everyone think it's so easy to be the next Oprah.  People act like Oprah just all of a sudden became famous and she didn't put any work in.  That woman worked really hard to get where she's at.  Instead of trying to become the next Oprah, NeNe should just continue to be herself and define her own path like Oprah defined hers.  Anyone trying to be the next Oprah are just setting themselves up for failure.  There is only one Oprah just like there's only one you.  So do you.
Would you watch a NeNe Leakes talk show?


  1. Would I watch a Nene Leaks show? Um, no. For the same reason I do not watch The View.

    Isn't she all about the drama? Where is the intelligent talk about issues? Where is her understanding that goes deeper than - ooo let's have fun with some wine in our hands?

    I think if you could watch a show hosted by Sherri Shephard, then Nene Leaks is for you. Otherwise I will be tuned into OWN. Thanks!

  2. I would probably watch the first episode to get a feel for it. However, she needs to realize that there is a difference between the Oprah Show and Jerry Springer. She has created a reputation of being a drama queen and I'm not sure how many celebrities would want to come on her show. Futhermore, I'm not sure if she would be able to focus on meaningful content like the Oprah Show does.

    I guess we will have to see what happens. And I'm sure that when people say they want to be the next Oprah, they are referring to the fact that they want to become as successful as she is.
