NeNe Leakes is finally getting the spin-off treatment! The Real Housewives of Atlanta breakout star will be featured in a solo series for Bravo called I Dream of NeNe. The focus of the show will be to follow Leakes as she gets ready to marry, for the second time, her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes.
NeNe joins Kim Zolciak and Frankel Bethenny in the club of Housewives with their own spin-offs. Her RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks is also on tap for her own show, Rich People's Problems, about her successful law practice in Atlanta.
NeNe and Gregg have a love story tailor-made for reality television. The couple divorced in 2011 after 13 years of marriage after Gregg claimed "fame got to her head." They reconciled last year and announced their engagement in January.
I Dream of NeNe will follow the reality queen and budding star (she also stars on Glee and The New Normal) as she endures — and creates — the drama that comes with planning a wedding, reconciling with her step-children and juggling a blossoming acting career.
