She showed off a new blonde hairdo and immaculately made up face as she drove home from the salon in Georgia.

Nene explained the drastic transformation came as she tries to adjust to her “new normal.”

“I played with brown for a while, and now that I’m adjusting to my new life, my new normal, I thought I’d go back blonde,” the reality star explained on her Instagram Stories as she got emotional.

She continued: “I’m trying to keep my mind off…. you know events that happened recently.

“I’m trying to push through with a blonde wig on.”

Nene also revealed the trip to the salon did her the world of good.

“I have good days and bad days, they say it’s normal, today I felt like going to the salon which is good,” she explained.

Nene also posted her new look to her main Instagram page with her fans shocked at her transformation.

“Pushing thru. Thank you @jasmine.dior @gracefulartistry For pampering me always,” she captioned the post.

Nene also answered the other reason why she looked so different.

“For those asking, I use the Beautycam app,” she said.

However, various fans were shocked by NeNe’s look, as one commented: “Who is this person?”

Another added: “Wow. That’s not Nene,” while a third wrote: “Who is this in the picture? That’s not nene?”


Earlier this month NeNe held a memorial for her late husband with a special performance by Tamar Braxton.

NeNe, 53, joined her co-stars Marlo Hampton and Phaedra Parks for a celebration of her late husband’s life at her Atlanta nightclub on Monday.

The TV star looked cheerful as she posed alongside friends for photos and enjoyed cocktails while remembering her long-time love.

Gregg died of colon cancer on September 1st after being diagnosed in 2018, his family confirmed.

A representative for NeNe told E! News at the time: “Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart.

“After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones, and wife NeNe Leakes.

“We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very, very difficult time.”


NeNe and Gregg first married in 1997, and share one son together, Brentt, now 22.

However, after nearly two decades their relationship became tumultuous and in 2011 they filed for divorce.

After spending a couple of years apart, Gregg worked to win his wife back, and the duo remarried in June of 2013.

Though the business consultant faced his terrifying 2018 diagnosis of stage 3 cancer, he was declared in remission shortly after.

However, by June of 2021, cancer had returned and had taken a turn for the worst.
