NeNe Leakes loves herself some fierce fashion, and the self-proclaimed “shoe whore” is particularly fond of the pricey-but-gorgeous Christian Louboutin heels. These red-soled wonders are a favorite amongst all Real Housewives, a fact Andy Cohen pointed out to NeNe when she was his only guest on Watch What Happens Live last Sunday.
During the aftershow a caller phoned in asking NeNe about her closet and massive shoe collection, which got out gal started on her wide array of fancy kicks. According to Ms. Leakes, the least expensive Christian Louboutin pump retails for about $625. When Andy interjected that the most expensive pair goes for about $2,000, NeNe proved him wrong.
“Oh no I have some that are $5,000,” NeNe nonchalantly revealed, “They go up really high, there are some that’s even higher than that. Probably my most expensive pair from him is $5,000.”
If you’re ready and willing to spend a cool $5K on shoes we’d assume you’d want to get your money’s worth and wear them like all the time, but it turns out that’s not really the case for NeNe. When Andy asked her if she ever repeats a pair she playful said, “I do sometimes when I‘m not shooting,” referring to the fact that the Housewives always have to look their best when the Bravo cameras are rolling.
“When we’re shooting we have to be fabulous honey or we’ll get an email from Andy Cohen.” But despite the hefty price tag, NeNe still loves and appreciates her shoes and keeps them on a nice rotation. “I keep them in my closet, I just love to look at them and what goes around comes around so they’ll be right back.”
