'Dancing With the Stars' NeNe Leakes' secret criminal past revealed

'Dancing With the Stars' NeNe Leakes' Secret Criminal Past Revealed
NeNe Leakes is dancing with the stars, but she once had tangles with the law. Star Magazine revealed the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star was arrested and charged in 1992 with three felony and one misdemeanor counts of 'theft of services' from a phone company. Star pulled the info from Athens-Clarke County (Georgia) Superior Court documents.

Leakes pled guilty and was put on two years probation, but she did not mention the arrest in her autobiography.

Leakes was then 25 and known by her birth name of Linnethia Johnson, Radar reports.

NeNe Leakes seems to be a very different person today, and she is a shining example of what someone can achieve when they turn their life around.

I used to like NeNe, but she's gotten to big for her britches! I have never seen a more "holier than thou", condescending person in my entire life! She flaunted her roles on New Normal and Glee in front of everyone she could. Now look at her...she has neither role! Careful NeNe...the fall can be hard!

NeNe is described very soon thereafter of being a "shining example" of turning her life around despite a felony arrest record that was previously hidden from the public eye. Meanwhile Colbert is being described as rascist and "the public" is calling for him to be fired after an obvious satire involving the Washington Redskins/Asian comparison.........Hypocrisy perhaps?????

RE: your statement:
"........despite a felony arrest record that was previously hidden from the public eye. "

..........hidden from the public eye..........

Ummm......how can something that is PUBLIC ACCESS.......be "hidden" from the public eye ???

There is nothing "hidden" about documents that are a matter of "public record"........ and can be looked up
by any "John Q. Public".........

There was certainly nothing "hidden" in the 300+ criminal history checks that I have personally done.

If NO ONE has bothered to research her criminal history UNTIL NOW......oh wellllllll......it STILL was NOT
"hidden" from the public eye.

Everyone in the world knows that America is the haven for criminals. No one takes laws seriously. Felonies? Who cares? Even if you are caught, all you get is probation and you go on with your life as usual. In fact, you have to be a felon to get any attention and be rewarded. And breaking the law is the quickest way to become a celebrity.

Only stupid people like me take the law seriously and try to live a good life. But I was raised in a different country where children were taught to respect law and authority and where law enforcement is taken seriously. And criminals and their family are actually made ashamed for their bed behavior.

The dance judges are afraid to vote her off because she might scream and yell at them like she has everyone on Atlanta housewives. She is not a star in my book, she is a loudmouth wannabe that needs to tone down those fake teeth because they blind people every time she opens her big ugly mouth.

She tried to humiliate and intimidate LaToya Jackson, from the family of Motowm Royalty (Youtube Latoya and Nene) on Celebrity Apprentice.

She called LaToya Jackson "Casper", yelling at her to leave the room. The no talent, stripper, multi-felon, misdemeanor, 2 cancelled show resume was glowing in bullying LaToya, as LaToya walked away with grace, as we all watched in disbelief as she disrespected a fellow sister. Awful.

worthless shoplifter, all shoplifters need to be in jail for 50 years. They cost all honest people thousands of dollars every year.

NO SURPRISE...MONEY SURE CAN'T BUY CLASS. THE ATLANTA SHOW IS NOT WORTH WATCHING....JUST HARD LOOKING WOMEN TRYING TO LOOK LIKE LADIES.... THE FIGHTING TURNED ME OFF SEASONS AGO....I STOPPED WATCHING THEN. I THOUGHT DWTS REACHED A NEW LOW WHEN THE HAD BRISTOL PALIN ON (unwed mother who didn't have the sense to be ashamed and strutted her stuff on every t.v. show) HER DANCING WAS HORRID. THE PRODUCERS ON THAT SHOW MUST SNORT FREQUENTLY.
