And what about that reality diva-turned-Glee guest star who has already filmed her scenes at McKinley High — none other than Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes? “I’m a huge fan of all the Housewives franchises. When I found out that NeNe was coming, I was obviously flipping out,” Naya gushed. “[A]nd then I got to meet her and she’s awesome, she’s very sweet.”
So she’s excited to go back to work, even though she’s sorta working through the holiday break? Yes! Naya told E! of her post-holiday return to Glee, “I have so much to look forward to when we go back! Just those guest stars alone, and then just seeing where the rest of the season goes.”
If you haven’t marked your calendars already: all-new episodes of Glee Season 3 resume on January 17, 2012!
