I’m not a fan of Nene Leakes’ on-camera demeanor and attitude, but let’s be honest, somebody obviously is. You have to give her credit though because she is making some big moves and collecting some even bigger checks, and you know you’ve made it when you’re moving from ratchet reality TV to a popular, mainstream series on a non-cable network.
The outspoken and “rich” reality TV star has confirmed that she will have a recurring role on the show as character Roz Washington, Sue Sylvester’s rival. Washington is a synchronized swimming coach for the school that will definitely be making waves. She’s already filmed her first episode and tweeted about her new gig:
“Studying lines now! My memory is just gone LOL! Gotta head right back 2 the Glee set after the holidays”
I don’t even really like Glee, but even I have to admit that this could be interesting knowing how crazy the Sue Sylvester character is, and also knowing how crazy NeNe is in general. If all goes well, she could be the black Gwyneth Paltrow on that joint, getting nominated for Emmy awards and singing at the Grammys. It also helps that some of her new co-stars are geeked about her new role and presence on the hit show. Entertainment Weekly reports that stars Chris Colfer and Lea Michele were all over her trailer when she arrived for filming. Looks like Glee is about to get some ATL swag.
