[Blind Gossip] Someone sent us this photo of a well-known TV celebrity.
We knew that she had dipped her very rich toe in the plastic surgery pool before.
However, this most recent round of plastic surgery has rendered her virtually unrecognizable!
Do you really know who this is?

[Optional] Do you think she looks good?
Celebrity: Nene Leakes
The photo just above shows what Nene Leakes – from Real Housewives of Atlanta and Glee – looked like a couple of years ago.
Nene “I’m rich, bitch!” Leakes has since undergone a transformation. She has had plastic surgery (most notably on her nose), lightened her hair, and lightened her skin.
The photo in the original blind item was sent to us by email and is now published on other sites. Nene admits that the photo is of her, but accuses others of lightening it so their sites can get “clicks.”
Nene displays what she says is the original photo (left) next to the “altered” photo. Yes, the one on the right is lighter… but even in the “darker” photo she looks very different than she did just a couple of years ago!
Interestingly, just before we received the photo in the original blind item, Nene posted the below photo on her Instagram account.
Clearly, Nene likes to lighten her own photos, too!
Since Nene is also know to lighten her own photos – and is also known to send photos of herself to sites and request publication – it is difficult to us to say who manufactured this whole controversy.
Meanwhile, given the responses from our dear Blinders, Avril Lavigne, Terri Hatcher, the Olsen Twins, Hilary Duff, Nicole Richie, and Kylie Jenner are studying themselves in the mirror, thinking, “Do I really look like that? NOOooo!”
Congratulations to Shelaur22 for being first with the correct guess!
Natasha Lyonne. This cannot be Nene Leaks. There is no way.
Super weird how Nene Leakes is becoming Aubrey O’Day.
Brielle Biermann. I think it looks like her a little bit.
That’s Nene Leaked. Its posted on her instagram
Nene leaks suffering from Lil Kim syndrome
Omg! I kinda see a bit of Nene Leakes in this photo but if it’s her, it’s downright shocking! When you mutilate yourself like this, it’s clearly a form of self-hate.
firefly nights says
Noooo ? I don’t believe you guys! There’s no WAY that’s Nene!!
I’m for real, that looks like a different human being.
Kim Z daughter Breile or whatever
And I thought it was Nene or JWoww!! How weird is it that now I can’t tell the difference between Nene, JWoww and Snooki??!! (Although I’m leaning towards Nene.)
I’m going with Aubrey O’Day – looks alot like her new nose!
Oh *! Snooki from Jersey Shore?!?!?!? ?
What the??? That can’t be NeNe Leakes in that photo????
Nene Leakes…who apparently wants to join the Kardashian family.
Is she a member of the Braxton family…?
It is NeNe.
Ye gawd, this is truly sad!
This would be Nene Leakes.
Is that Nene Leakes???
She looks terrible!
Omg Nene Leakes!!! She looks like a white woman! ?
Hmmm … Kim Kardashian? Whoever it is, she looks tragic.
scrap that I think it’s Tori Spelling
It’s Nene Leakes. Doing her best to look like a cross between Mary J Blige and Kate Chastain (Below Deck).
It’s her royal mooseness nene going the mj route but decided to go an extra mile and don some blue contacts smdh
Rich * NeNe
Huh. No idea. Nene Leakes?
thatz nene leakes!
And if being a white, blonde woman makes her happy to look in the mirror every morning so be it!
Sarah Michelle Gellar
It’s NeNe Leakes!
Her mouth looks like a corpse.
Probably one of those horrible *, so I’ll guess Krazee Kylie.
Or else Amanda Bynes.
Optional: if I see one more doe-eyed, moose lipped girl with a snipped off nose and long, fake extensions,I swear I will go after the weave!
I recently saw a pic of Kim Kardashian with a smaller butt, so I’m guessing it’s her.
Nevermind.. just googled and this is Nene Leakes! CRAZY. Do I think she looks good? Sure, but don’t think she’s looked horrible before
Kinda looks like Nene leakes but can’t put my finger on who it actually is?!
I want to say nene leakes.
Dear Lord! NeNe Leakes?! Somebody please stop her. Like, yesterday! (And “very rich” is a clue from her fight with Sharee. Yes, I know this, and no, I really shouldn’t, LOL.)
Lisa Marue says
Nene “I’m rich *” Leakes. The photo does look heavily filtered…I don’t necessarily think she looks bad..but she just looks any other reality cast member now.
This is nene leakes.
She is claiming on Instagram someone lightened this picture
NeNe? Is that you?
Nene Leakes. With a very different mouth. These people must be sooo insecure ?
She is mean spirited. Ugly inside & out.
looks like aubrey o’day. or maybe heidi montag. either way, she’s starting to look like that girl from love and hiphop that broke her nose that is tierra marie’s friend. Hezel-E
Holy sh*t, NeNe!!!
Dear Lord, is that Nene Leaks? WTF??!!!
Nene Leakes. Seems more like a long weave and heavy filters than major plastic surgery
Yikes this is NeNe Leakes from Real Housewives-Atlanta!
[email protected] says
What the…Nene Leakes!
The infamous Nene Leakes has been dipping in the skin bleach I see!!
Nene. If she’s happy with it, that’s what matters.
She looks like Ashley Tisdale…
Omg Nene who are you anymore!?
Holy cow, no!
OMG you can’t even recognize her. She looks a lot younger but also totally white. It’s too weird.
Paris? No way
Holy crap!!! Is that Nene”I’m very rich” Leakes! Lord I thought Imwas looking at a white woman! For the love God woman, STOP!!!!!!!!!
Nene Leakes RHOA
She looks like she’s on the road to be the next LaToya Jackson
Unfortunate shemale black version of Hillary Duff.
Nene Leakes dislikes her own image
I’m probably wrong, but it kind of looks like Hillary Duff
Grande Queso says
wtf happened to Nene?! lol

not sure….Heidi Montag ?
nene lekes. wow
oh my NENe!! hast totally c hanged her look!!
She looks pretty and very young and not a grand ma…that she is.
Doesn’t look good
It kind of looks like one of the girls from the Jersey Shore??
Nee Nee Leakes
tell me more says
Neke leaks….atrocious mess
This is Nene Leakes. I actually think she looks good. She does need to stop here but she won’t. They never know when to stop.
My bad, they didn’t Photoshop the picture, it was lightning. But she does look unrecognizable. Girl bye, put down the knife.
No. Looks likes she’s bleaching along with plastic surgery. So much self hate.
She looks like Mel B…aka Scary Spice.
She looked best the first season when she was new and real. While she looks good now, it’s a shame that she has felt the need to change her appearance so drastically and dramatically. Nothing wrong with a little nip and tuck, but…not trying to judge, but it seems like deep rooted insecurities have taken over.
Nenee Leakes and she looks awful
Tia Gordita says
Nene for the block!
This is the big fat moose known as NENE LEAKS.
eissak elag says
I see she’s taking the Lil Kim approach to changing her looks.
Kim Kardashian. No, she looks weird.
Oh my gosh! NeNe? !
Hmm. She looks weird and plastic, but even so I think she does look a little better.
Ne Ne Leakes – she looks terrible and she should retire those blond wigs
Next time, just say no Nene
She looks like Nene Leaks, but I have no idea otherwise???
Holy crap! She looks nothing like her old self. She wouldn’t look bad if you had no idea who she was beforehand, but since we do know her, it’s pretty shocking. It makes me sad. She was a funny, iconic person and now she looks so fake.
That’s awful. I hope it’s a filter or the sun shining and brighten her complexion in the photo. Or wearing the wrong shade of foundation.
If not, she’s entering Sammy Sosa territory.
Celebrity: Kim Kardashian
Brandi Glanville? I’m seeing bits of Brandi in there.
NeNe Leaks and she looks HORRIBLE. Her and Lil Kim need to stop the madness. Stop trying to be someone you’re NOT!
Doesn’t look bad but didn’t look bad before all of the surgery.
Kylie Jenner! I hope that’s not her she looks AWFUL And really is unrecognizable. So sad.
Oh, Nene, what have you done?
Hmm is that Hilary duff?
That’s what I wondered. Or her sister Hayley?
Gosh darn it, Nene Leakes. What happened in your life to resent your blackness so much?? This lady done bleached her skin, whittled her nose, snatched someone’s blonde roots to wear as her own, and God knows what else. It’s a tragedy. :-s
So, who’s going to call cultural appropriation?
spunkie brewster says
Nobody because apparently it’s only cultural appropriation when white people do it
NeNe… this time you’ve a bit too far (lol)
spunkie brewster says
One of the Olsen twins.
The mouth sure does look like an Olsen twin, doesn’t it? But I don’t think it is.
Is this Nene Leakes? I’m not sure of spelling.
I was thinking that it might be Nene Leaks, but Nene is African American.
spunkie brewster says
She’s been questioned about bleaching her skin. She has gotten lighter over the years….
Is it Terri Hatcher?
I thought it was Avril leveen that is nene leaks holy cow she look different I didn’t recognize her
Holy cow! Are you sure? That person doesn’t even REMOTELY look like Nene. Yikes! She looks like a Kardashian.
I would never have recognized her from this photo. Wow.
Ace, what are your thoughts on why celebrities go under these drastic transformation? Is it a race thing wanting to be lighter or is it society? I would love to hear your feedback. She was such a beautiful woman before makes me sad to see her career evolve like this. Does anyone know if she has psychological problems?
Holy Crap!!!! I would NEVER have recognized her!!!!!! Great catch!!!
She looks weird. I am sure she thinks she looks “great.” Sad.
I THOUGHT it was her then thought, “but this person is too young!” Yikes! Younger she may look but not better. I miss the old Nene’s looks!
I can only wish that in this sorry world of such need, of such want, that *I* would have enough money to * away making myself into the goddess of my dreams.
I’m certain my life would be SO much the better for a major transformation, just like this citizen’s is sure to be a delightful wonderland.
Wow, Nene must really hate her black heritage to completely obliterate it like that. Poor thing.
