The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s highest-paid star, NeNe Leakes, exclusively shares with Life & Style how her remarriage to longtime love Gregg Leakes inspired her to slim down to her best body yet!
“I only wanted to lose five or 10 pounds,” the star, 45, tells the mag. “I like being a curvy girl.” Once the pounds started melting off, though, they just didn’t stop! NeNe kick-started her 20-pound weight loss by cutting out soda and eliminated late-night snacking.

The 5-foot-10 reality star ensures the mag, “I’m not trying to starve myself. I love food! I didn’t count calories or carbs,” she insists. “Counting doesn’t get me anywhere. I do portion control when trying to lose weight. Eat less, move more.”
When NeNe hits the gym, she teams up with Tammy Stokes, author of Live Your Healthiest Life, for interval training and yoga, but what really gets this TV star moving is chasing around her 16-month-old granddaughter, Bri’asia.
