Apparently the Dollar Store is a place where even mega-millionaires shop. In an interview with In Style magazine, NeNe Leakes claimed that she indeed actually shops at such a store — and frequently does such. The interview, which was rather odd, came after she was apparently questioned by friends over her choices of wine glasses (and the like) at parties she often hosts.
Leakes has made millions off of her business empire and appearances on numerous reality shows and guest appearances on others. But despite the fact her bank account is fat, the reality star, apparently likes to shop frugally.
“If you want some good-ass wine glasses, you go to the Dollar Store. Most wine glasses are very thin and break when you put them in the dishwasher. Well honey, the Dollar Store has got some thick ones, same with martini glasses. Whenever I have a party at my house, I go buy boxes of plain white plates there too. The sales person always looks at me and goes, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s NeNe Leakes at the Dollar Store!’ I’m like, don’t worry about me. You can have all of this expensive stuff at your party, but your guests will be eating off of Dollar Store plates and they don’t even know it.”
