NeNe Leakes

Tyler Perry blow off NeNe Leakes? Puh-lease.

“He has this on his phone, this crazy silly voicemail that goes ‘Doo doo doooo. The number you have reached has been disconnected.’ It’s just something he has on his phone, but that is his phone number,” the Atlanta Housewife explains to Vulture.com about that time she unsuccessfully tried ringing the Madea maker while dining with Ryan Murphy, a.k.a. Mr. Glee.



See -- Tyler Perry didn’t change his number without telling our NeNe. “We talk all the time. At least every week I talk to Tyler,” The New Normal star describes their tight friendship. “We both live out in Atlanta. He usually advises me, he’s like a mentor to me. We’re really good friends. He just advises me on the industry. He’s just regular like me.”

So, do these BFFs talk about NeNe starring in a Tyler Perry film? Not just yet. “I would love to work with Tyler, however, we’re friends,” the sitcom queen says. “So whenever we’re talking about anything, I never say, ‘Oh, let me be in your film,’ or anything like that. I figure he knows me, he knows I’m an actress.”
