Nene Leakes Lands Recurring Roles on Fox and NBC

March 27, 2012  |  

Nene’s reign on TV is spanning far beyond Bravo and a stint on “Celebrity Apprentice.” The real housewife of Atlanta already made an appearance on “Glee” earlier this season as rival cheerleading coach Roz Washington and now she’s been granted a recurring role as that character.

But that’s not all, Nene is teaming up with “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy for another project on NBC. The comedy pilot,The New Normal,” will be about a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate. Nene is said to be playing a character named Rocky, which will be a heavily recurring role, but that’s about all the details that have been shared on that.

This all sounds pretty interesting. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of Ms. Leakes, honey.

What do you think? Are you happy to see Nene getting her acting on or do you wish she’d go away?

    Not a fan at all, RHOA is enough for me to stomach but, get yours NeNe.

  • Am3lya_tandi

    better in a tv show than a crappy reality tv show, as long as she can act I have no problem with that.

  • I LOVE NENE and am glad to be seeing her in other roles besides RHOA!  

  • Why

    Wow that’s why we get no respect as a race we stand for nothing and fall for anything….Not hating I am just saying….

  • Love it.. its a wonderful thing to see her in constructive and productive work…!!!

  • Glad for NeNe. Go get your girl and let the hater hate

    Nene is a brand and she’ll do well. But I feel sorry for the out-of-work actresses who aren’t losing roles to reality stars.

    I can’t hate on Nene. I just can’t. Because you just know she was NOT supposed to be the breakout star when the Atlanta Housewives first premiered. So if she’s able to stretch her 15 minutes of fame into 20 or a half hour, more power to her. I also think her hair cut and color looks fierce!
