Think you know all there is to know about NeNe Leakes? Think again!

The fabulously outspoken Real Housewives of Atlanta star is sitting down for an hour-long tell-all interview with E!'s Giuliana Rancic where she'll open up about everything from her difficult childhood to stardom to her relationship with husband twice-over, Gregg Leakes.

NeNe will be digging deep into her past to talk candidly about how she met Gregg when she was working as an exotic dancer. "I remember going home and having something like $1,000 and thinking ‘I made $1,000 in one night. Baby we are doing this tomorrow night,'" she says of those days. "It became an addiction.”  

NeNe will also speak about being abandoned by her mother at a young age, how she got out of an abusive relationship with an ex, and what really caused her 2011 split with Gregg. NeNe's sons Bryson and Brentt will also get a chance to dish about their mom.  

"I feel like strength comes from within. And...experience makes you strong. And I’ve been through so many things in my life and those things have taught me," she says. "I’m one of those girls, every experience, I learned from my experience."

"I’m very proud that there’s a ton of African American women who really look up to me," NeNe continues about her life in the spotlight now. "I’m very proud to represent the strong black woman.”  

E! Entertainment Special: NeNe Leakes airs on Monday, December 16th at 10 PM ET/PT on E!
