Reality star NeNe Leakes from Bravo‘s hit series “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (RHOA) has been cast in a recurring role on the upcoming sitcom, “The New Normal,” according to TV Guide.
Leakes, who has been pursuing an acting career, has been making the rounds on talk and television shows. She was eyed by Ryan Murphy, a director/producer and co-creator of the TV hit “Glee!,” where she appeared in a recurring role as a swim instructor.
The series is expected to air on NBC and stars Grammy Award-winning actor/singer Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha from “The Hangover” film sequels. The pair play a gay couple trying to start a family by enlisting the help of a surrogate. Leakes’ role will recur as a character named Rocky.

The egocentric reality star made an appearance last week on “The Amandas.” Last year on Donald Trump‘s”The Celebrity Apprentice,” Leakes terrorized Star Jones and LaToya Jackson. She also had a stint playing herself on BET’s “The Game” and “Let’s Stay Together.”
As far as Leakes’ spotlight in RHOA, it is fading fast. She looks bored to death on the show and it is apparent that her days are numbered as she ventures into other ego-feeding areas of showbiz.
Bon appetit NeNe!
