Everybody in reality television says they're going launch a wine line, open a store or make a record. In the case of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Rasheeda Frost, she's already made six albums, so opening a shop comes next when her Pressed boutique debuts at Atlanta, GA's Phipps Plaza on June 17, 2015. Not to be outdone, Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is opening a shop for her eponymously-named clothing line (the one she currently sells on HSN) and is touring the country in search of the perfect location.

Along with sharing a record label and management company with her husband Kirk Frost (D-Lo Entertainment), Rasheeda already has experience as a retailer as she has her own makeup line (Poiz Cosmetics) and an apparel line (I'm Bossy). The Pressed storefront (3500 Peachtree RD NE) in Atlanta's affluent Buckhead section is the next logical step for a woman who refers to herself as "the Boss."

As for NeNe Leakes, TMZ reports the The Real Housewives of Atlanta diva was scouting shop locations in Atlantic City, NJ, at developer Bart Blatstein's new Playground entertainment and retail center. NeNe hasn't signed on the dotted line yet; she's still looking with upcoming visits in New York City, Los Angeles and back home in Atlanta. Bloop bloop.
