NeNe Leakes' Does Her Impression of Kandi Burruss

Typically, each of The Real Housewives franchises has at least one class clown who provides plenty of comedic moments to offset all of the drama. Author, podcaster, web series creator and host, and stand-up comedian Matt Bellassai knows a thing or two about making people laugh. He also happens to be a Bravo fan, as well. So which of the 'Wives keeps him in stitches whenever he watches? Matt revealed his pick for "Funniest Housewife" on The Daily Dish podcast.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

"I mean, NeNe [Leakes], she's a jokester," Matt said. "She's the one who most consistently makes me laugh." 

Matt also admitted The Real Housewives of Atlanta is among his top two favorite Bravo shows, and he's thrilled NeNe is back on the small screen. "There's not one moment that I've been disappointed when NeNe is on screen," he said.

Even NeNe's fellow Atlanta 'Wives appreciate her hilarity. While RHOA was on a break for Oscars Sunday, Kandi Burruss shared with her Instagram followers some of the shenanigans NeNe and the ladies had in Barcelona, Spain. 

Like many RHOA fans, Matt appreciates and respects how NeNe lives her life. "I feel like she knows life is a game and she is playing that game to perfection."

Find out what Matt thinks about "Roachgate" and which Bravolebs he's seen and met in person in the full podcast episode above.
