Nene Leakes seems to have taken part in an impromptu photo shoot, thanks to her stylist Troi Anthony coming to town. But while “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was serving face, fans got onto her about some editing that appeared to have taken place after the fact.
“Whenever @kingtroi is in town, he’s forever taking pics of me,” Leakes captioned an August 20 pic of her on the ground in a gown and striking a pose.
Initially, fans began piling on the compliments.
“Yezzz…Nene face beat to the gawds come thru ”
“Serving I’ve fallen and I can’t get up realness.”
“You’re Beautiful Mrs. Leakes, your makeup is FLAWLESS ”
“Absolutely beautiful. Black does not crack. I don’t know how old you are. But wow. What did you look like at 21? #Stunning”
However, others soon began poking holes in the theory that only makeup was doing the work on Leakes’ face. They pointed out what appeared to be some photo editing done to smooth out her mug.
“Nice pic @neneleakes but way 2 much airbrush, so much can’t tell the difference between u and the carpet..”
“You gone airbrush yo self to death girl! Get up..”
“All that airbrush but forgot the hands…”
“A lot of air brushing… doesn’t even look like you.”
“Nice picture but it’s too much photoshopping or too much plastic surgery.”
“photoshop just hasn’t been your friend these past few months.”
The last comment may reference one of the last photos Leakes posted this summer that focused in on her smiley appearance.
A pic the star shared to social media at the end of May had Leakes appearing to look barely recognizable.
“Who dis woman?!?!”
“What’s wrong with the top of her lip and nose and don’t say it’s contour for the idiots…I do makeup!”
“Dam did she get another nose job. Gurl you said your rich..go to Dr Nasif in LA and get a nose appropriate for your face..”
While Leakes has not addressed accusations of relying heavily on photo editing apps, she has made it clear in the past that she has no issue with heading under the knife.
Speaking on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Leakes told the host in 2016 about her two nose jobs.
“My cartilage was growing in my nose, and my tip was touching the top of my lip,” she explained before adding, “I didn’t get a full rhinoplasty the first time. No, when I did the first time, I only had my nostrils taken in on the side the very first time, and then this time, I had more cartilage moved around in my nose.”
