If you’ve been wondering if NeNe Leakes could translate her reality show sass into a legit acting career, then this clip from her upcoming star turn on Glee may give you an idea of what to expect from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
It runs just little more than one minute and in it we see Leakes playing Roz Washington, the McKinley’s synchronized-swim team coach. She calls Sam (Chord Overstreet) a “strange looking kid,” referring to the size of his lips.
She then takes a quasi-preachy tone as she remembers growing up and eventually fulfilling her pool-related dreams after everybody was “saying that black folks couldn’t swim.”
Her episode is set to air on Jan. 17 so it’ll be interesting to see how Leakes matches up against Glee’s Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch).
For Leakes, there may be life after RHOA and the reality show circuit after all.
