NeNe Leakes is taking a break from reality television to try her hand at scripted TV in 2012.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is set to guest star later this season on the Golden Globe-award winning musical TV series Glee.
Leakes will be putting her “I’m Rich B!tch” catchphrase of 2011 on pause to play swim coach Roz Washington on Glee’s upcoming Grease-themed episode on January 17.
No word yet on which songs NeNe might be chiming in on or if she can even sing, but rumor has it her role could be reoccurring as well. It has been reported that Leakes might reprise her swim coach role on the series' planned Michael Jackson tribute episode scheduled to air January 24.
Do you think fellow housewife and aspiring singer Kim Zolciak might be just a little jealous about this news?
