Blazing her own outrageous, outspoken path on the Bravo show, she joins the ladies for a season-end reunion Nov. 25.

SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE NENE? I’m not the kind of girl who can walk in anywhere and just be fake. It’s just not gonna happen. I like to come in, be myself and they better not mess with NeNe. Honey, they better leave NeNe alone. Team NeNe here!

HOW HAS LIFE CHANGED NOW THAT YOU’RE A STAR? I love to go to a restaurant and sit down, and I can’t even do that anymore—there’s always somebody standing over my food talking.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT AT THE REUNION SPECIAL? All I can tell you is drama, drama, drama.
