Renee is an American actor, recording artist, and television personality. She was born on March 31, 1986. The 36-year-old appeared on Basketball Wives and is also known for her recurring role in Season 3 of Empire.
The actor has also been part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, where she appeared in Season 9 as the musical friend of Kandi Burruss. Other notable appearances include The Spook Who Sat by the Door and co-starring in The Chi, the Showtime series.
In an interview with Essence magazine, Renee revealed that both she and Green attended Michigan State University, where the actor ran track and field. "We were in the same theatre class and both athletes", she said, adding, "Naturally we gravitated towards one another for group projects because we were already familiar with each other."
However, the two didn't get together at that time. It would happen over a simple meeting in Los Angeles years later when they reunited. "We went to a rooftop pool and hung out at the cabana all day, which is still one of our favourite things to do together", Renee said, adding, "We hadn’t seen each other in a very long time so we hung out all day, talked, and caught up. It was really casual but also reflective of our relationship. We really are best friends."
The two have a child together. Their daughter Cash was born in 2020. "I’m looking forward to celebrating our love and this new chapter in our lives with the people who have been down with us from the very start", Renee said about the upcoming wedding, and added, "To have the support of family and friends is priceless."
