NeNe Leakes knows how to kill a plate of shrimp. "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star is also eyeing up her future in more ways than one – her Tuesday Instagram update came with her gearing up for a vacation as she missed her "Jamaican peeps." NeNe is, of course, also fronting media outlets this month both for allegedly having been fired from the Bravo franchise, plus the more recent headlines that she's pushing for her own show. NeNe might be jetting out to Jamaica, a destination she chose last year to celebrate husband of 21+ years Gregg.
