In February 2014, Leakes announced that she would be launching a clothing line later in the year. On July 28, 2014, Leakes launched the Nene Leakes Collection for the Home Shopping Network (HSN). The collection sold out in days. “We took meetings with a lot of different people. And HSN actually felt right,” Leakes said. “When they walked into the room we totally clicked. And you need to really work with people who really understand and get you.”
