In a recent feature in Allure, Real Housewives from across the franchises revealed the ways in which they’ve changed themselves to be on their shows. Among the women interviewed were Real Housewives of Atlanta longtimers, Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes. Here's what they had to say.
"Oh, so much has changed," Kandi admitted, explaining, "Last year was my fifth season on the show. Of course, you start getting makeup all the time. You feel like you have to have hair all the time, never wear the same outfit twice. You want to have new clothes. It's really expensive just to be on the show. And, well, yeah, I've changed my hair so much. I went from short hair to long hair and from red hair to blonde to black. So I do a lot with my hair."
Meanwhile, NeNe went into all the details, responding, "I never even thought about that. I guess, yeah, when you see yourself on TV, you definitely have to step it up beauty-wise. You're like, ‘OK, don't wear that eye shadow anymore.’ Or, ‘I shouldn't wear that foundation again, that color doesn't really work for me.’ Because television is very different than in person, with all the lighting. I'm pretty much the same size that I was before. I would like to work out more, but I'm allergic to it. Oh, and my hair color has changed a million times since I've been on the show. And eyelashes, I love. So I'm forever in a pair of lashes, big ones, small ones, whatever."
Who do you think has changed more, Kandi or NeNe? Sound off below!
