Following in the footsteps of stars like Gabby Sidibe and Mo'Nique, Nene Leakes is also on the list of celebs who have recently made a choice to level up their lifestyle.

Judging by the pics on this Georgia Peach's Instagram, she plans to ride this hot girl summer out to the very end, and she recently dropped the details about how she got snatched in such a short period of time.

According to Nene, after her husband battled and survived colon cancer, they have both made a conscious decision to live healthier lifestyles. While we can't expect to see Nene in our local Planet Fitness, she has made some significant changes to the way that she eats. The 51-year-old reality star told HollywoodLife:

"We've really been trying to do better and eat better and eliminate the junk. I'm not doing anything crazy like doing the elliptical or riding the bike or running."

She explained that along with cutting out junk food, she has also given this trendy diet a try:

"I started being a pescatarian and he was plant-based, so I started there. It did help me and I felt different. I lost a couple of pounds. I'm not a big eater. But what I started to do, was just have small portions. I feel like I eat about four times a day – four, sometimes five – just nibbling on stuff, and I feel really satisfied."

Nene says that while she hadn't been able to completely curb her habits, she has been able to employ a few new methods to ensure that she keeps her cravings in check:

"I love to snack on stuff because I like chips. So If I'd want it so bad, I could eat a little bit and then I'd throw it in the trash can. I always say to myself, 'I'm not going through the trash can to get it out and eat it,' so I'd bite it and then I'd throw it in the trash. So I could just satisfy myself a little bit."

Nene told the publication that with her birthday being less than six months away, she's hoping to be in the best shape of her life. So far, Nene has lost 12 pounds and is down a whole dress size. While this may not seem like a huge accomplishment to some, now, the reality star says she's only 8 pounds away from her weight loss goal.

"I've always been the girl who's been a size 10, and then when I got bigger I was a 12 — Whatever. I don't ever remember being an 8. I would love to be an 8."

Recently, I was talking to a single woman about what her plans were for the holidays. When she started talking about how badly she wanted to be in a relationship, I found myself calling her out on it a bit. "Girl, you ain't said nothin' about a man all year and now you want to be with somebody?" After she (literally) poked out her lip, she said, "It just seems like everyone in the world is with someone but me and I don't like it."

The rapper joined Playboi Carti’s King Vamp tour as the opener and she has experienced everything, but a warm reception from fans attending the concerts. She has been booed while performing and during their tour stop in Portland, Oregon, the “Magic” rapper confronted the crowd after someone threw a bottle at her.

Off the rip, some of you may wonder what prompted me to write on a topic like this. There are two main causes for the inspiration. One, I find myself having a lot of conversations with women who can't seem to figure out, for the life of them, why sometimes their sexual experiences are the peak of pleasure while others are more on the ho-hum side. Secondly, I've read before that reportedly 46 percent of women have stated that they've always or almost always (whatever that means) have had an orgasm before while only six percent professed to it happening for them all of the time.

Ciara one-two-stepped her way into our lives over two decades ago and she's been giving ever since. I remember wanting to be just like her as I entered high school. She was beautiful, talented and an all-around five-star chick. From her style to the way she just seems so effortless, she was all that I wanted to be. To this day, she is still goals. Ciara once said about style, "I believe a person's style is an expression of who you are - way more than dancing."
