Nene Leakes' birthday was full of surprises this year.
Notably, The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum reunited with some familiar faces at her birthday bash held at her Linnethia Lounge on Tuesday, December 14. That included a couple of members of the RHOA family: Porsha Williams and Shamea Morton.
Porsha shared a series of photos from the night on Instagram on December 15, which also featured her fiancé, Simon Guobadia, showing herself and Nene all smiles as they embraced. The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha's Family Matters cast member also wished Nene the most heartfelt birthday wishes in her Instagram post. "Happy Birthday Queen [Nene] looking better than ever. So good to enjoy your smile again," Porsha gushed in the caption to the post. "Wishing you many many more! Luv uuuu."
Nene returned the love in the comments section of Porsha's Instagram post. "I love you P," she wrote, along with a red heart emoji. "We had so much fun."
Nene proved just how much fun she and Porsha had in a post on her Instagram on December 16. "Me and Porsha had not played in these streets in a minute together! When we do get a chance to hookup, it’s a whole movie! We really laughed our ass off! Too much fun [Porsha]," Nene said of her reunion with her fellow Georgia Peach. "[I] had to post these slides cause we be doin the most. The things we be saying tho."
She also included the hashtags for "big sis" and "little sis" in the caption to the post, referring to how Nene and Porsha have described their close friendship in the past.
Shamea also shared some magical memories from the event on Instagram on December 15. "Great times last night [at the Linnethia Lounge] celebrating the birthday girl [Nene]," Shamea said. "I’m still laughing."
Nene confirmed in the comments of Shamea's Instagram post, "We had sooooooo much fun! Love you girlie."
Shamea showed a bit more of all of the fun that was had at Nene's birthday party, sharing a video of herself "just vibin wit my bestie [Porsha] on a Tuesday night."
Porsha, Simon, and Shamea, along with several other members of the RHOA family, previously came together to support Nene at a celebration of life for her husband, Gregg Leakes, after his passing following a battle with colon cancer in September.
For her birthday this year, Nene noted on Instagram how she initially "didn’t want to celebrate" it "in a big way." "I just wanted to chill wit a few [loved] ones but my fam would NOT let it be that way!" she explained.
In fact, it was Nene's son, Brentt Leakes, who organized this surprise birthday party for his mom. "This is the first party he has ever thrown me! He did so GOOD!" Nene shared. "Love you [Brentt]."
Brentt transformed the Linnethia Lounge into a true celebration of Nene with the space decorated with portraits of the RHOA alum, as well as signs featuring her famous "bloop" catchphrase. Attendees partied the night away with food, drinks, and dancing, according to a video featuring highlights of the event. The evening included plenty of special moments for Nene, such as a special saxophone serenade of "Happy Birthday" from musician Richard Shaw Jr. and a fabulous two-tiered cake topped with cake sparklers.
Of course, Brentt kicked off this special week with a touching tribute to his mom on the day of her birthday, December 13. "Happy 25th Birthday To My Mommy! We Been Through A lot This Year, But Today We Will Be Problem Free!" Brentt shared on Instagram, along with a series of pics with his mom through the years. "I Love You Shawty!"
Nene was definitely feeling the love on her big day, writing on Instagram on December 15, "I love all of y’all for loving me and making sure [I] am good during this time."
