NeNe Leakes Cast in Ryan Murphy’s New Comedy Pilot
NeNe Leakes’ transformation from Real Housewife to bona fide television star is officially complete.
Deadline Hollywood is reporting that NeNe has landed a coveted role in Glee creator Ryan Murphy’s new NBC comedy pilot, The New Normal.
Ryan and NeNe began working together earlier this year after Ryan cast NeNe in Glee as Sue Sylvester’s rival, synchronized swimming coach Roz Washington.
Murphy’s new comedy is about a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate. NeNe will play the recurring role of Rocky.
While a role in a new TV series means NeNe will be spending plenty of time in California, the Georgia peach insists she won’t be relocating to L.A. permanently.
When a curious Twitter follower asked NeNe is she was moving to L.A. for good, NeNe tweeted back, “not 4 good but I'll definitely work here.”
Even though her future on Housewives may be up in the air, we’re super psyched that big things are happening for NeNe!
