This Real Housewives Star Is Defending Her Second Nose Job

Do you buy her reason for going under the knife, or nah?

You may have noticed something different about NeNe Leakes lately.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been sporting a drastically contoured face — her nose, in particular — leading fans to speculate that she'd gone under the knife yet again. Well, NeNe prides herself on keeping it 100, 100 percent of the time, and that's exactly what she did when addressing the speculation on Watch What Happens Live! last night.

The reality superstar admitted, without hesitation, "Yes, I had my nose done again. It's only day 13 so I'm very swollen."

But the 49-year-old went on to insist that she had "a real medical reason why I had to get it done again," explaining that she had "cartilage growing in my nose," that meant "the tip of my nose was touching my lip when I smile." She went on to admit that this time she had a full rhinoplasty, saying that she "only had my nostrils taken in on the side the very first time."

When host Andy Cohen pointed out that "medical reasons" is a time-honored excuse for getting a nose job, and in fact, NeNe herself had used it before, the shade queen answered, "It wasn't just for doing my nose — I didn't love my nose, and I wanted to do my nose to make it more beautiful for myself."

She went on to complain about the "absolutely horrible" way she's been treated on social media by people "constantly judging and picking people apart" over the rumors. She even had a message for her haters: "First of all, educate yourself and get the reason why."

But the question remains, are you buying the reason, or is this just another excuse to go under the knife for cosmetic reasons?
