The Real Housewives Of Atlanta: NeNe Leakes On New Scripted Show; Will She Leave The Housewives?

March 28, 2012 10:05 AM by Martha Zaborowski

NeNe Leakes has been “very rich” with great success in Hollywood lately. She has been guest-starring on Glee for the past few months as swimming coach Roz Washington, and now she will be featured on a comedy pilot for NBC called The New Normal. The New Normal is a show by the co-creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, and it’s is about a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate. NeNe will play the heavily recurring role of Rocky. With NeNe’s time heavily divided in Hollywood, will NeNe have to ax her involvement with The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

When a fan asked NeNe on Twitter whether she was moving to Los Angeles full-time, NeNe replied: “Not for good but I’ll definitely work here.” She then followed up that response by tweeting: “I wanna thank my castmates from the Housewives because you ladies definitely helped me in ways you will never be smart enough to know.” We’re used to NeNe blatantly insulting her Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates and implying she’s too good for the show, but this seems especially like a parting shot. Perhaps NeNe is protecting her dignity in case she is fired from the Housewives by making it seem like she chose Hollywood over the Housewives, or maybe she is in fact really done with reality and ready to be a full-time actress. Even if she’s ready to leave Bravo, she may not be able to if she is still under contract.

Would you rather see NeNe Leakes on reality TV or scripted TV, and why? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below.

    In the beginning, Nene was a fan favorite. She has become a selfish, egotistical, nasty, person filled with venom. Personally, I don’t want to see her in antything, and I believe many people now share my opinion. She is one of those people who is ruined by the spotlight.

    Nene is so damn Fab that everyone wants her. SHe’s being paid a cool 1Million per episode on RHOA, She has had a recurring role on Glee that reportedly pays 150K per episode and She is confirmed in the new show New Normal as a regular highly recurring charachter. Everyone is hating on her for making the most out of her success on the show and she is still the fan favorite of RHOA based on the show polls. Funny thing is noby got mad at Bethenny Frankel for moving up and moving out other than her castmates but Nene is just simply doing the same thing. The only differenec is Nene is going into acting and some production Bethenny has built a franchise on drink and now food shoot this time next year you might be seeing Nene on the Forbes 100 list!
