NeNe Leaks Joins The Cast Of ‘Glee’

"The secret is out!"

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?

  1. I will watch because it will be funny but I bet her role is small!! I can’t slam her for making it onto a huge show like this. In my honest opinion this show just jumped the shark.

    I used to love NeNe but she has become so fake on the last couple of seasons of RHOA. Her diva like attitude has become just annoying to watch. If shes “rich bitch” like she says she is then maybe she should put some money into her house & actually make it look like someone lives there. I always find it funny when people live in a house that they can’t even afford to furnish.

  3. i agree ..glee is so over

      I am with you here. I stopped watching Housewifes because Nina became a selfish, narssistic bitch and I will not be watching Glee now either…………used to LOVE Glee but their taste in characters has gone in the toilet with adding Ninw, non matter how small. She is an insult to ALL women everywhere……no wonder men think we are all bitches…..look at what the examples are!!!!

  4. She comes across so awful on the RHOA..I really can’t stand her and usually fast forward through her parts..And, to be honest, Glee has been crap lately so this is just another reason for me to not watch anyways..Seriously..She’s awful and people need to start ignoring her so she can just go away! Her ego is so inflated as it is! Bah! I really can’t stand her..

    I love NeNe!! If anyone thinks she’s “fake” then they obviously haven’t paid much attention to the ~other~ RHOA. She stands out more because she has the notoriety from Apprentice, but she’s putting up with less crap from the others so she might come across as a b!tch, but I don’t think she is…. and that’s fine with me.

      Preach it cowgirl! Now thats my girl, she the only reason I watch housewives of ATL so it will just be a double wammy for me cuz i love me some Glee and I love me some NeNe! Bloop-Bloop!

  6. i must be in the minority because i’m absolutely LOVING glee this season!! it’s combining the best things from season 1 (the stories) with the best things from season 2 (the music). that being said, i have a vague idea of who nene is (i don’t watch real housewives) but she does strike me as the type to be pretty funny. i’m anxiously awaiting to see how she does!
