NeNe Leakes Connects With 'The Free Gays'

The 'New Normal' actress says she prefers her gays to be out.

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes is hoping for a free for all. "I know all about the gays. I love them," the Atlanta Housewife tells AfterElton.com while promoting her new show, The New Normal, which follows a gay couple looking to have a child. "I've never liked the ones that aren't out for some reason. I like the ones that are out."

Oh? "I feel like it is the most free thing to be able to be who you are and be able to walk into the world like, ‘This is who I am.' I say that about myself. I feel like I'm free, so I know how it feels," NeNe explains. "I connect to the free gays."

However, Tamra Barney's "I'm a free bitch" motto doesn't quite apply to every area of her life. "I want to come [to The New Normal set] with my lines known; I also want to be funny because they want me to be funny. It's different because on the Housewives, if they say, 'NeNe, you're shooting at 10:00 AM,' and if I'm not ready til 12, then we don't shoot till 12. But on this show, when it's time to go, I need to be up. Call time says 6, you've got to be there."
