Ne Ne Leakes New Show Picked Up by NBC

Posted: May 15, 2012 in Comedy, Interview, NBC, Ne Ne Leakes, Real Housewives of Atlanta, The New Normal

Ne Ne Leakes has a new acting gig. She plays Rocky on the new NBC comedy The New Normal. When asked to describe her role, Ne Ne says “”I’m Rocky, one of the gay guy’s assistants.”

 The show is said to be an updated version of the odd couple. The self proclaimed “Rich Bitch” from Real Housewives of Atlanta also had this to say about her character. 

“She’s very different from Roz Washington on ‘Glee’; she’s always in workout outfits and sneakers. Rocky wears high heels every day. This is very fitting for me because in my real life, you don’t mess with my gays, honey,” NeNe said, snapping. “I don’t play that.”

More about the show and Leakes interview with The Insider when you continue reading.

 The show features Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon) and Justin Bartha (National Treasure) as a gay couple trying to have a child via surrogate. They settle on Goldie, played by Georgia King (a British actress with little name recognition in the U.S.), who already has a daughter of her own, and brings her opinionated, bigoted mother, played by Ellen Barkin, to the mix.

“The New Normal” is slated as one of the most anticipated comedies of the 2012 Fall season.
