NeNe Leakes has booked another recurring role; this time it’s on NBC.
WhoGotTheRole.com reports that the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star has landed a part on the upcoming NBC pilot for "The New Normal." The sitcom centers on a gay couple and the surrogate mom carrying the baby.
NeNe will play Rocky, a woman who is dating an attorney for The Collective named Darrell Miller. It’s not clear what personality Rocky will have, but if NeNe landed the role, smart money has it that she’ll probably be a boisterous socialite with some great one-liners.
NeNe got the gig after her work as coach Roz Washington on "Glee." Whatever she did on the set must really have impressed show creator Ryan Murphy, who is also co-creator on "The New Normal."
