If you're rich and/or famous, Barneys New York is definitely the place to shop over the holidays!
Before heading to the VH1 Divas concert on Sunday night, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes stopped by Barneys in Beverly Hills, and we're jealous of the folks on her holiday shopping list!
With her Housewives paycheck and appearances on Glee and The New Normal, Nene is just rolling in the dough these days, and she even covered Ebony's Money and Power issue last month. Of course, some folks weren't happy about that, accusing the magazine of lowering their standards for featuring her on the front of their publication.
So what did Nene have to say about the backlash? "I absolutely deserve to be on the cover. This cover is about money, power, and respect," she said. "And it’s about a come-up story and I’m the one that had that story this year. Not only did I come out as a reality star that was very boisterous and vivacious and outspoken and all those things. I flipped that into money and respect. And a lot of people can’t do that ... But listen to me, definitely all of the negative feedback definitely came from my own; African Americans were the ones that were the most negative. And it’s so funny to me because I would call [the editor] over at Ebony and she would say 'Girl please, glass houses.' That’s all it is. They don’t want to see you on the cover, they don’t really understand the reason why you’re on the cover, they don’t know your story."
