NeNe Leakes has had varying forms of her platinum blonde bob for years now, but she recently changed it up just a bit by lengthening only one side of her locks. Although her hair is still the same bright blonde color, the new ‘do is clearly edgier than what we’ve seen from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star in the past.

NeNe showed off her new look on July 28 as she made her way to dinner at Mr.Chow in L.A. She kept things casual with distressed skinny jeans and a black, red, and gold blazer.

The reality star-turned actress has often drawn comparisons to musician Mary J. Blige in the past, and we think the two look more alike than ever now thanks to NeNe’s new hair. Is it just us, or is Mrs. Leakes totally channeling Mary J circa early 2000s?!

Possible resemblance aside, NeNe was in great spirits as she left the restaurant, despite being sued by her “wedding planner” just days earlier. See for yourself in this hilarious video below!
