NeNe Leakes has been super busy since checking out of The Celebrity Apprentice early. Not only did the The Real Housewives of Atlanta star just open a restaurant in California, but she's looking into expanding her business and breaking into other ventures - including her own brand of wine.

"I'm so proud of myself. I have a Famous Famiglia inside of the Sacramento airport," Leakes told Sister 2 Sister. "I'm hoping to do airport business—open up bars is what I really want to do."

Leakes also revealed to the magazine her plans to produce an Italian wine called "Miss Moscato," which she debuted on a recent taping of Anderson Cooper's daytime show

"You guys know I love wine. I have my own Moscato called Miss Moscato," Leakes said. "My business partner went to Italy, to the vineyards and I stayed here and worked on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. It's a sparkling [wine]."

The slogan for the new wine brand, which she hopes to sell to airlines, restaurants, and beverage companies, is "It's fabulously delicious." But the ambitious mother of two isn't stopping there. Next up, she'll be working on a lounge that she's naming after herself.

"I'm working on my lounge," NeNe told Sister 2 Sister. "My lounge hasn't opened up yet, but we talk about it a lot on this season [of The Real Housewives of Atlanta]. It's called The Linnethia."

"We hope to do them in very hot places like Vegas. Like maybe there's an L Lounge in a casino," she added. "We're having meetings with casino [executives]."

She also hopes to have L Lounges open up in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Miami.
