A new photo Nene Leakes uploaded to Instagram has fans talking for a new reason other than her face.
The image of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was uploaded to her account June 17, and in it, the star posed in her signature white T-shirt, a long-sleeved camou-print kimono, cutoff denim shorts and bright yellow pointed-toe boots.
“Good Morning….Heyyyyy! Yall ready to get this bag💰 do it but remember, All money ain’t good money #hustleandflow #swagg #fendi,” the longtime reality TV star captioned the post.
The image had fans stunned by her appearance and remarking about how much weight she appears to have dropped.
“So thin nene!!!! U look amazing 😉”
“Looking very healthy! 😍”
“So, thin & Beautiful🔥❤️”
“You look great i wish i could lose weight .”
“Looking good @neneleakes but don’t lose no more weight. You are the perfect height & weight 💕🔥”
There’s no word from Leakes herself that she has started a certain new diet or fitness regimen to lose any extra pounds, but the star has said before that she’s cut out all meat aside from fish. She made the move in support of husband Gregg Leakes, who initially was taking a holistic approach to treating his colon cancer after he was diagnosed in May 2018. He is now cancer-free, however.
“Gregg has switched his diet to Vegan and I’m supporting his efforts so I’ve given up all meat and consider myself a Pescatarian! It wasn’t even hard for me! I just said, ‘I’M DONE’ but I need a little seafood in my life🤷🏾♀️,” Leakes said on Instagram last year.
But Leakes’ good eating habits date back further. Speaking to E! about her bikini body in 2016, she said she focused on eating small portions and having breakfast to “kick start my metabolism.” She added that she was “eating smaller dinners earlier in the evening.”
“We all know what our weaknesses are and what we overindulge in so it’s all about being mindful about what we eat and PORTION CONTROL,” Leakes continued. “That’s the key…because hunni, we like to eat! And having to deprive myself of anything is a no-no for a girl like me! Summer fun and sun is right around the corner so that’s a great motivator for me!”
As for a possible workout plan, on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” back in 2013, the star said she does not usually work out.
“I just try to be conscious and eat better,” she explained. “But I wanna work out. I just haven’t found the time but I really wanna do it. I know it’s good and healthy.”
