With Oprah bowing out of the talk show game, of course NeNe Leakes thinks she's got a shot at filling the void left in her wake. Sorry, Wendy Williams. Although she's currently filming a fourth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe's jonesin' to make the move to Miami to start up the Leakes empire.
"Celebrity Apprentice has given her more confidence, but she sees moving to Miami as key to her success and now that her marriage is all but over she is ready to commit but she wants the right project to be in place," a source tells RadarOnline.
Apparently, after all the morning talk shows and news segments NeNe has done, she thinks she's got what it takes to surpass Wendy Williams and be the next Oprah. The Hotlanta Housewife is in the market for either a talk show or a new reality show of her own filmed in Miami. She's in talks with both Bravo and VH1 to produce the series.
Adds the source, "Ironically, NeNe does not really like Wendy Williams, but she respects what she has done and she believes that she can be even more successful than she has been."
Is anyone really surprised that NeNe isn't Wendy "The Weave Factory" Williams' biggest fan? Do you think TV has room for two towering, top-heavy talk divas? (Although, we will admit, NeNe looks a lot better than Wendy...) And, more importantly, could NeNe really be the next Oprah?
