Past Due? Nene Leakes Owes IRS Over $800K!

Nene Leakes has definitely road her Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) fame to serious heights of success. However, it looks like that has not “afforded” her the opportunity to pay Uncle Sam! News has surfaced that the popular reality star currently owes the IRS a whopping $800K!

Following in the footsteps of Kim Fields (who appeared for one season on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” this year), Oscar winning actress Mo’Nique and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” veteran Sheree Whitfield, RHOA’s most prominent star NeNe Leakes owes more than $800,000 in back taxes to the IRS.

The IRS filed the tax lien last month for $824,366.01 in Gwinnett County federal court in Lawrenceville. The taxes cover 2014, a busy year for the woman who likes to brag how wealthy she is. And given the tax total, she easily generated more than $1 million in income that year.

In 2014, she participated in ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” She was also making recurring appearances on Fox’s “Glee” and appeared full time in seasons six and seven of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” She took part in Broadway’s “Cinderella.” And she introduced her clothing line on HSN that summer.

If she doesn’t pay up, the IRS has the option to seize her assets.

She purchased a $2.1 million home last year in Sugarloaf Country Club in Gwinnett County.

Since Leakes is considered self employed, she is responsible for paying her own taxes. Salaried employees typically have a chunk of their taxes taken out before they see any money in their bank accounts, making it more difficult to skirt payment.

We are really surprised to learn this about Nene. It seems like just yesterday she was yelling at former castmate, Sheree Whitfield, about how she is a “Rich Bitch!” Perhaps this “Rich Bitch” should be a smart one and do another season of RHOA and wipe out that debt? It is just a suggestion…

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
