Nene Leakes Opens Her Own Restaurant!!!

So although our girl NENE LEAKES didn’t get her own reality show like castmates KANDI BURRESS and KIM ZOLCIACK, the most popular Real Housewife of Atlanta is still making moves.

The next time you and your girls are in the Sacramento International airport, stop by Famous Famiglia, a  new franchise restaurant owned by Real Housewives of Atlanta star NENE LEAKES.

The restaurant opens today and will be serving pasta and pizza on the menu – nothing to fabulous or to ‘hood but we highly doubt Ms. NENE will actually eat there.

A a part of the Famous Famiglia Pizzeria chain, this is an interesting venture the ex-Celebrity Apprentice contestant can add to her resume (right in before stripper).

Our question is what does a Black woman from the South really know about Italian food, except how to eat it? #shade

    You should really look into getting this

  • Hilary Kimbel

    Sounds delicious! I hope that I can find great pizza in Scottsdale just like this. It’s definitely my favorite food!

  • Graham Williams

    I’m excited to try this one! I hope it’s as good as my favorite pizza in Calgary. It’s great!

  • Earl Judds

    Sounds delicious! My favorite restaurant in Ottawa serves pizza and pasta. I love my comfort food!

  • Jen Kirk

    That is great! I was very excited to hear she was opening her own italian restaurant. Naperville, Il has several good Italian restaurants, so she will have to compete.

  • Strake Davis

    She is absolutely fantastic. I love her restaurant in Tsawwassen. Hands down, it is my favorite anywhere.

  • Bob Strong

    I wonder who they will hire to do all the roof repair for the new restaurant. It sure sounds like a good job.

    • Jayden Eden

      Bob, maybe they will get lucky and the restaurant won’t need any roof repairs. I am hoping that her restaurant becomes successful. I wish I could afford to open my own restaurant one day.

  • Sarah O’brien

    I would definitely go there. I would love to have one of her restaurants in Penticton.

  • Amelie Baudelaire

    Hope that goes well! I wonder if it takes off we can see a Halifax restaurant open up. That would be exciting!

  • Kat Brennan

    I would love to go to NeNe’s restaurant! I saw this pizza delivery place in Calgary online that I’m trying tonight but next week when I’m in LA, I’m going to NeNe’s!

  • Sam Esh

    I would love for NeNe to open one of her restaurants in Anchorage AK! I bet her food and atmosphere are so amazing! She is really classy.

  • Jameel Johnson

    I can’t wait to find some Italian restaurants near me. It is a lot of fun.

  • jeanblake80

    Way to go girl! You sell that pizza. I never would have guessed.

  • Lance Tankmen

    I wish that restaurant was closer to me! Pizza has to be my all time favorite food! Does anyone know if she will posting the recipes for her food?

    • Bob Strong

      I highly doubt that she will be posting the recipes. A friend told me that she hired a great chef to work the restaurant though. I’m really excited to try her restaurant. I just hope that it tastes like authentic Italian.

      • samgibson4113

        Bob, who’s your friend, I would love to meet him or her. I love pizza and I would love the chance to speak to a real chef. I’m a little envious, you know all the people Bob.

  • Cambria Rhay

    My family is going to Sacramento this summer, maybe we can stop by this restaurant! I absolutely love Italian food, so I try every new Italian restaurant that I can. I would think that she would want to eat there if she owns there restaurant. Maybe we’ll see her there.

  • Thiago

    Oh, pizza restaurants are the best! I love going out to get pizza. A celebrity owned pizza place sounds like a blast to visit. Thiago |

  • Anita Mas

    Italian food is the best! I love the Americanized stuff, too. You can’t really go wrong with carbs, cheese, and tomato sauce!

  • Eliza Lawrence

    It is great to see celebrities out there doing things other than acting. It is cool to see their unique and individual skill sets. Pasta and pizza sounds really good right now.

  • Laurey Williams

    This is so exciting! I had no idea that Nene was opening her own restaurant. Good for her! I hope she enjoys be a restaurant owner.

  • Marcus Fillion

    So did she open up the pizza restaurant, or did they simply open in up in her name? It’s not quite the same thing. At least she’s using her celebrity status to draw attention to the greatest thing in America: our pizza that we stole from the Italians.

    • Dolores Brown

      I would have to agree that pizza is one of the greatest things. It would be cool to go to her restaurant and see her there. It would make my day to see a celebrity and eat pizza. I cannot imagine anything better, and that’s probably because I’m just hungry for pizza.

    • Jenny Noble

      I agree that pizza might be the best thing about America. Italian pizza is so different that it can’t really come compared to American pizza. I think both stand on their own, delicious pedestals.

  • Jazmin Tew

    My ex loved pizza more than he loved me. I can’t blame him though haha that stuff is so good. My favorite is good old fashioned pepperoni.

  • Mike Lintro

    Pizza is the BEST. No one can convince me otherwise. The best part is my wife loves it more than me. Maybe that is why we work together so well. Thank you pizza!

  • James Clarkson

    Managing a restaurant can be a very challenging task. I hope that Nene is able to have a very successful business. I don’t get to eat out often, but when I do it is a wonderful experience.

  • Dom Boyd

    That’s a good point. I’m sure she will do well, though. Who would purchase a franchise without knowing how to run it? I am looking forward to trying it some day. I love Italian food!

  • Nora Moore

    Is there a word for a pizza lover? Practically my whole family would fall into that category. I’ve never tried the pizza at that place, but it’s hard to get pizza wrong. Maybe I’ll try it sometime.

  • Jason Strong

    Celebrities do a lot of things with their money, but opening a pizza restaurant with that money has got to be one of the coolest things that I’ve heard about. There truly is nothing like sitting down and having a nice piece of pizza to make your whole day better. I would imagine that a restaurant like this would take a lot of pride in how the pizza is made so that that it is up to par on taste and quality .
