NeNe Leakes will most likely be back for another season of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but if she’s not, the reality star won’t exactly have to worry about suffering from obscurity. She’s starred on Glee, headlined a Cirque du Soleil show, and now, is a finalist for a major role in an upcoming Broadway production!
As much as they enjoy trashing NeNe Leakes, Twitter critics are forced to admit that she knows how to rock it on stage! The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star proved a big hit earlier this month, when she portrayed the Mistress of Seduction in Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity. She enjoys television, but NeNe’s true love is for the stage. As such, she is desperate to land a spot on Broadway.
According to the latest Facebook rumors, NeNe Leakes’ Broadway ambitions may soon become reality. An insider for Radar Online claims that NeNe is eager to land the role of Cinderella’s fairy godmother in an upcoming production of the famous Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. First, however, NeNe has to blow away the competition, which, at this point, is down to Sherri Sheppard. The two are believed to have already auditioned and are now awaiting the final decision.
If NeNe Leakes manages to beat out Sherri Sheppard, she’ll have a great story line for the next season of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. But more importantly, a spot on Broadway would be wonderful for her showbiz resume! Radar’s source explains, “[NeNe is] truly hoping to get the role. She feels that it would be a great opportunity and her fans would definitely turn out to support her.”
