|Behind the scenes of Glee
with Nene and a Cheerio
Nene Leakes did not break Glee after all. In fact, her Roz Washington character has gotten such good press that she is on for the remainder of the season. My EXCLUSIVE SOURCE from the set says that her role was being tested out for public reaction and that Nene passed that test with flying colors! So, she may not be on every episode but she is recurring this entire season (after the hiatus). It seems like all of her appearances on shows like The Talk and Rosie really paid off. Nene will be in L.A. filming Glee all week and will also be co-hosting two episodes of The Talk. I don’t know who is handling Nene’s bookings but whoever it is, is doing a fabulous job!
But that’s not all, word from my insider on the set is that Nene’s role is likely to be extended into next season. There are also rumors that next season may be Glee’s last so Nene may be there until the end. It sounds like Mrs. Leakes may have found her niche. The cast and crew are simply over the moon about her. Kevin McHale (Artie) saw tonight’s episode yesterday and tweeted, “Whoaaaaa. dear
@neneleakes, u are amazing in the new GLEE ep! This woman needs to be on every week.” Chris Colfer and Lea Michele are also very vocal about their love for Nene. The crew also loves Nene because she didn’t come in with a big rider with lots of demands like other guest actors tend to do. It would seem as though Nene Leakes does actually know how to behave! Good for her. The plot for tonight’s show and some of Nene’s zingers are behind the jump.

On tonight’s episode, Nene will be coaching the Cheerios! Since Sue Sylvester is busy trying to buy some um…”baby juice” from the boys in Glee and Mr. Schuester, Nene steps in with the girls. In what I think will be the best line of the show, Nene responds to Sue’s announcement that she wants to give birth by saying, “with whose Hello Kitty?” Lines like that are going to force me to become a Nene Leakes fan, get a lobotomy and STAN for her all over the damn Internet. I’m just sayin’. Nene also gets into it with Sue telling her that at her age she will give birth to a grandchild, and that she has old wrinkly boobs. The poor Cheerios do not escape the wrath of Roz Washington either. Roz comments on the girls “donkey booties” during practice. You would think that Roz battling with Sue, and Sue trying to get herself knocked up by the boys, and the girls (mostly Santana) making smart remarks about Sue’s vagina would be a great enough show. But wait, there’s more, this is the Ricki Martin episode! Ricky sings Madonna’s La Isla Bonita, a Spanish duet with Naya Rivera, that is already stirring up a lot of positive feedback and it hasn’t even aired yet. Tonight is going to be good y’all. Glee airs on FOX tonight at 8 p.m.
