In a note on her personal website last week NeNe described how it feels to be living her dream. "Waking up this morning in a daze like what just happened! I stood before a SOLD OUT Broadway theatre screaming my name!," she wrote. "The overwhelming amount of love & support brought me to tears! I have so many people to thank this morning... I can’t believe this. Like I really can’t believe this!"
After her debut, NeNe celebrated with her husband Gregg and family. Gregg even presented her with an over-the-top cake, which she called "beautiful."
