Earlier today we heard the debut single Who Gon’ Check Me, Boo? from Real Housewives of Atlanta star Shereé Whitfield (which is AWESOME, btw) but right now I have some more RHOA news to share. It turns out that NeNe Leakes has been cast in a recurring role on Glee! Glee stars Lea Michele and Chris Colfer broke the news last night on Bravo TV and NeNe confirmed on her official Twitter profile. NeNe will play a swim coach named Roz … is that not the funnest thing you’ve heard all day? Love it! Read on for all the deets.
“Glee” is about to get a “Real Housewife.” On Monday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” “Glee” stars Lea Michele and Chris Colfer announced that the Bravo reality star will appear on the FOX musical series. “We found out that her real name was Linnethia … which I am obsessed with now,” Michele told “WWHL” host Andy Cohen. “She’s awesome. She plays the new swim coach… We literally raided her trailer.” Chris announced that NeNe’s character is named Roz Washington. The reality star also confirmed the news on Twitter, writing, “The secret is out! YES I hav a recurring role on GLEE! I’m coach Roz Washington the synchronized swim coach! So honored!” Adding in another Tweet, “Studying lines now! My memory is just gone LOL! Gotta head right back 2 the Glee set after the holidays.”
This is too fab. Glee hasn’t been keeping my attention lately, to be honest … but with NeNe on board, I’m gonna watch! I really love that NeNe is getting so much attention … she is deffo the biggest break-out star from RHOA (much to the chagrin of the other ladies, I’m sure). Homegirl is on fire. LOVE IT SO MUCH! What do y’all think? Will NeNe make a good addition to Glee?
