Has Sheree found another job? Is Kim going to be tardy for the sitcom?
Nope! NeNe Leakes is taking over TV. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and recurring “Glee” actress is adding another acting credit to her ever-expanding resume with Ryan Murphy’s new NBC comedy “The New Normal.”
The New Normal” follows the Beverly Hills couple as they try to start a family. The two turn to a surrogate, Goldie (Georgia King), with Ellen Barkin co-starring as Goldie’s Archie Bunker-esque grandma. So where does NeNe come in?
“I’m Rocky, one of the gay guy’s assistants,” NeNe told The Huffington Post on the red carpet for NBC’s upfront presentations in New York on Monday. “I take it very personal, honey, if you talk about my gays, honey. Only I can talk about them and I’m fabulous.
“She’s very different from Roz Washington on ‘Glee’; she’s always in workout outfits and sneakers. Rocky wears high heels every day. This is very fitting for me because in my real life, you don’t mess with my gays, honey,” NeNe said, snapping. “I don’t play that.”
Nene is on the come up! We’re glad little loud azz “very rich” beyotches everywhere now have someone to look up to. Will you be tuning into NeNe’s new show this fall?
