NeNe Leakes On 'Glee': Wendy Williams Wonders If Role Could Take Her To 'Housewives Of Beverly Hills' (VIDEO)
"The Wendy Williams Show" (weekdays on Fox) was on its holiday hiatus when "Real Housewivese of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes was cast as swim-coach Roz Washington on "Glee." So on Friday, Williams took the opportunity to update her audience on the news and wonder if the role might lead Leakes to join a different iteration of "Real Housewives."
Citing a National Enquirer report, Williams speculated that Leakes' new guest-gig could spell the end of her time on the Atlanta edition of "Housewives." "They're saying that NeNe can't wait to use her new "Glee" success against the other 'Housewives.' You guys, reportedly she wants to give a big fat goodbye to the ladies in Atlanta, especially Sheree and Kim," Wendy said. It's a good point; the prospect of the already combative Leakes somehow acquiring more self-confidence must have the other "Housewives" shaking in their boots.
Williams went on to suggest that so long as Williams is headed out to the West Coast, maybe she should just join "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." "I would love to see how NeNe gets along with [Lisa] Vanderpump," she joked. That would be an excellent first step toward creating a "Housewives" All Stars cast, which would be the epitome of drama-filled reality TV.
