of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
took a leap out of her comfort zone when she took on a recurring role as “Coach Roz” on GLEE last season.

Well her bravado paid off in a BIG WAY.
Through her connection to the popular television show, NeNe has landed yet another acting role!
NeNe has landed another recurring role on NBC’s “The New Normal.”
According to the AJC:
She’s had a well-received recurring role this season as a tough-talking swim coach on Ryan Murphy’s “Glee.” Now Murphy has tapped her again for another recurring role on his NBC comedic pilot “The New Normal” about a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate, according to Deadline.com.
She plays a character named Rocky, though the article provides no details of what that entails.
Hopefully with all those new Hollywood connects, NeNe will be gracious enough to hook her former friend Sheree Whitfield up with a J.O.B. being as though she may be getting Lisa Wu-d during Season 5.
[Sidebar: You may recall that Lisa Wu (aka Sharon Millette) started off taping the 3rd season season but about midway through she faded to black and disappeared without a trace. But I digress…]
There are many who have been asking if NeNe will return to RHOA next season, and while nothing is concrete as of yet, my sources have all confirmed that she’s NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
So we can still expect to see Leakes making her paper as a paid Atlanta “housewife,” while still cashing all those “Trump Checks” from her side gigs.
You better werrrrk it Leakes! Next stop? A Tyler Perry flick…
Can you imagine NeNe Leakes as an A-List Hollywood Actress?
