Reality star? Check. Actress? Check. Clothing designer? Check. Wife and mother? Check? Award winner? It looks like NeNe Leakes can now check that off her list, too.


The 47-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently joined an elite group of small  screen stars when she took home the 2014 Best. Ever. TV. award for Best Reality Star from E!.

NeNe had some majorly stiff competition in the category, beating out favorites like Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, Chopped’s Ted Allen, Maks Chmerkovskiy, Khloe Kardashian, and fellow Housewives star Carole Radziwill.

NeNe excitedly announced her win on Twitter, exclaiming, “I WON! Whoot Whoot.”

NeNe may have been the only member of the RHoA cast to snag a nomination or win, but the entire franchise earned some high praise from voters, with all of the Real Housewives casts collectively winning the award for Best Reality Show.

While winning the award is definitely high praise for NeNe, it’s far from the only thing she has to smile about these days — hot off a stint at Cirque du Soleil’s Las Vegas show, Zumanity, NeNe is now counting down the days to the release of her clothing line for HSN, which makes its debut on July 28. Work, girl!

Do you think NeNe deserved to win? Did you vote for her?
