To viewers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Brandon DeShazer is just Kenya Moore’s sassy assistant who inexplicably got his ass kicked by Apollo Nida at NeNe Leakes’ Pillow Talk party — but as some of you may already know, Brandon has been a working actor for years. A little digging on YouTube brought us to his acting reel, which boasts an impressive list of television and movie credits.

For example, did you know that Brandon had a bit part in one of our favorite cult classic shows, Party Down? The role was small, but he was helped to his seat by cutie Kristen Bell! And his name was Dune, which is pretty funny. He also played a computer whiz/detective named Harry in eleven episodes of Days of Our Lives from 2008-2010.

And it looks like Brandon’s talents go beyond just acting. In another section of the reel we hear him belt out a tune in Jump the Broom: A Musical, a short film from 2009. Unfortunately his character gets left at the altar, but we won’t hold that against him.

A quick glance an Brandon’s IMDb page shows that he hasn’t acted since 2010, but we suppose he’s too busy now defending his employer/good pal Kenya from washed up singers who think it’s OK to grab a woman.

NeNe may have referred to Brandon as Kenya’s “girlfriend in the red pajamas,” but it’s clear that there’s more to this guy than gorgeous eyes and a pair of silk PJs.
