Playing NeNe Leakes Looks Completely Unrecognizable in a Swimsuit, Jokes About Her Plastic Surgeon -- See the Pics

NeNe Leakes is that you?!

The 48-year-old reality star shared makeup-free snaps of herself in a leopard-print swimsuit on Thursday, and to say she has a new look is an understatement.

Leakes, sporting long blond hair, also joked about calling her plastic surgeon when it comes to her slimmed-down physique.

"Looks like I see a roll coming on my side! Calling the Plastic Surgeon Now #anti-aging #fabgab," she captioned another glam swimsuit pic, adding a syringe emoji.

She appears to be most proud of her toned legs.

"Damn these some long skinny brown legs!" she captioned a close-up shot of her gams in black-and gold wedges. "I thought they were fat and I know I told that plastic surgeon to bleach my skin! Calling his a** now. #brownsugga #anti-aging #fabgab #petty."

Leakes' fans definitely noticed the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star's changing looks.

"Wow, NeNe! You don't look too much like the old NeNe in the face anymore," one Instagram follower commented.

"It's like a whole new person," another user noted.

We can perhaps attribute Leakes' different appearance to the fact that she opted to go fresh-faced with no makeup on, but looking at a picture taken just one day ago of the reality star in full glam mode still shows her looking unrecognizable.

Earlier this month, Leakes admitted that she recently got her second nose job during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live!

"Yes, I had my nose done again. Yes, I did," Leakes candidly said. "Yes, because it was a real medical reason why I had to get it done again. My cartilage was growing in my nose and my tip was touching the top of my lip. The tip of my nose was touching my lip when I smiled."

"But I didn't get a full rhinoplasty the first time," she added. "When I did the first time, I only had my nostrils taken in on the sides, the very first time. This time I had more of cartilage moved around in my nose."

Leakes defended her decision to go under the knife.

"First of all, educate yourself and get the reason why," she said. "But I'm also the kind of girl who'll give it to you straight. I got my nose done first of all because I can and I will, and I'd get it done again if I want to, OK!"

In March, a source close to Leakes told ET that she could potentially return to Real Housewives of Atlanta. The actress was a regular on RHOA's first seven seasons before returning as a guest in the current eighth season.

"After making appearances this season, it wouldn't be a surprise if she came back in some capacity. That door is definitely still open," the source said.
