The New Normal Cancelled After One Season

The New Normal - Season 1It’s sort of a mixed bag for Nene Leakes this week. The New Normal, has been cancelled after a borderline season. I though perhaps Ryan Murphy might be able to eek out one more season, but alas, it was not the case. Glee, on the other hand, I believe, for reasons no one understands, has two more seasons! I could not believe that when I read it and I am still not sure it is true. Since the primary cast graduated, the show has been filming things in NYC with them as well as the new kids in the high school scenes. Nene is on that occasionally for a hot second. Once Glee had the split in locations, Nene’s already small role was greatly reduced. It remains to be seen if she will even be on the next two seasons, but given Ryan’s gay crush on her, it is likely she will be making at least limited appearances.

nenedomeI am hoping that Nene using Kenya’s furniture was a fake storyline because she has no use for that rental house in the Hollywood Hills after today. Both shows are on finished for their seasons now and so Nene is back to being “just a housewife.”  However, before we shed too many tears for Nene, we have to realize that Nene’s big check is and always has been RHOA. I kept trying to tell you people who Nene does not make enough money on The New Normal and Glee to pay the light bill on her rental property in Atlanta. She also does not make a million dollars a season on RHOA but she does make an obscene amount for someone of her education and talent.  She also has I Dream of Nene which I expect to get really high ratings. So expect to see A LOT more of her on RHOA this season. The sad part is, she is not going to win her Grammy is she ain’t on an unscripted show, so despite the minimal impact on her income (actually she will be saving money by not doing the shows since she is based in Atlanta) this will be devastating for Nene. She really does fancy herself a real comedic actress.

Meanwhile, my sources tell me that Sheree Whitfield is lunching with a Blue Power Ranger. I don’t even WANT to know WTF that is all about.

  1. Heh. Someone just linked me to the petition to try to get Sheree back. It’s up to 440 votes, y’all. But the reason they sent it to me was because this person left a great reason.

    Name: Kai on Apr 4, 2013

    Comments: please bring her back because the broke bitch needs a job and so she can stop suing my favorite bloggers and stop blaming others for her life failures!

    • betsy

      HILARIOUS!! Amen to that. We love you TT!

      • terry macon

        TT,I was unable to watch wwhl sheree is to old to be a lier, get real sheree and just maybe we would like you, she lie so much until I will stop looking at
        The RHOA. Grinning like a monkey. Lord Jesus take me know,even Andy saw
        Her for who she is. Did you see andy looking at her? Like “B” please!

    • theREALHONJ

      OMG PMSL! Welcome back TT! Whats your take on death or life for Jodi? I think they should give her life since she wants the death penalty. She didn’t give Travis a choice so why should she have one?

  2. I have been watching this show hoping I will get better It was not all that good and this is the reason why people should never have the major attitude like she had, Porsha had the same attitude that Kenya is jealous because “I am married to a rich man”
    Funny comment about Sheree, only 440 people want her back? I bet half of those signatures are by her with different accounts.. Hehe..

    • lots of the ones on the only page I read were by the same people arguing. LOL. This morning I woke up to a shitload of spam on my TL. It looked like someone just tweeting dozens of follow Fridays. I hit the spam/block without reading. Now someone says it was a crazy person I don’t know defending me. or something. I dunno, it was annoying.

    • Sheree has two ghost accounts that attacked me the other night. When I saw their names included I just spam blocked them all. Her spam accounts are the ones that are trying to get a petition signed. SMH.

  3. I can only assume there will be lots questions from y’all for Sheree on Sunday. Be sure to include tamaratattles in the questions!

    As much as I despise Nene, I did watch and enjoy “The New Normal” because I will watch anything with Ellen Barkin….and the family in the show was cute and funny. To me Nene was a non-mutha-f**kin factor on the show. The show really was great, and the birth of the baby to the gay couple had a lot of potential for great fun shows with the expected activism on gay rights.

    What in the hell is that drama queen Sheree going to want to talk about on WHL? Why is she even allowed to be anywhere near Andy and that clubhouse.
    Oh well, no need to wear sunglasses cause Andy will be bringing his shade in full force.

    • Whatever you do Miss Uretha, don’t send @bravoandy a question about why she keeps dragging TT into court. I have agreed not to communicate with her (like I ever have) so anything you do is not because of me.

  5. We Found Love in a Hopeless Place

    On one hand, Nene is a hustler, and has some get up and go about herself, which I like, but her head is too far in the air. Maybe this will bring it back down again…aw shoot, who am I kidding lol

    • Exactly my point. Nene basically LOST money on The New Normal and Glee. But it was her Hollywood moment. I hope she enjoyed it. I am not saying that facetiously. She can check off her bucket list “Worked in Hollywood” but her MONEY comes from RHOA. And she better get back to sucking the Andy Cohen tit like she means it.

  6. Lori

    Maybe this will bring Nene some much needed humility.

  7. Of all the Housewives I would watch Nene’s show (and I have about as much love for a HW spinoff as Shereé has a love of truth & sanity) So I thinkyu’re right about the ratings for Nene. Shame about New Normal did anyone think that was going to make it (Modern Family-Lite). But dear god in heaven how on earth are they going to flog that poor dead horse called Glee for two more seasons?!? What Ev’s, keep truckin’ Nene!

  8. Jarlath

    “I have returned …”

    I wonder if her failure will humble her? Then again, it’s not as if she needs Hollywood, she’s Donald Trump rich, gurfren!

  9. MissCane

    Nene’s no actress,no beauty, rather crude and uneducated. She’s also street smart
    tough, ambitious, shrewd and grounded. She took all her negatives and turned them into positives with a genuine personality and she’s not the type to forget where she came from. I think she’ll be around for a long time.
    And if she didn’t overestimate herself in the extreme, she wouldn’t be where she is now. Just goes to show you.
    I give her a lot credit.

  10. RealitySux

    LOL…hope she was saving her pennies…now back to work Lenethia! I don’t care fo rNene – but I think her spin off will be successful…**IF** she just enjoys it. If she starts the whole juvenile rating neener neener with Kandi – or even that stupid Kim … it will just be another day in RHOA world.

  11. Eve

    Geez, I hope Nene can get out of her fake lease on her fake home in Calif.
    and…….I hope the fake house in Atlanta is still there. If not, she can sell her fake ring for one night at a Motel 6.
    What storyline could she possibly have on her new show? Oh ! She can work security at Walmart and arrest her son.

  12. Tamara

    I did watch and like the new Normal. Guess I was in the minority :( oh well Nene will probably be bringing the drama for sure next season of RHOA lol

  13. Victoria

    NeNe…well I kinda like her. Only when she’s not putting on airs. Like she did on the wwhl 1 on 1. You can tell she likes to think she’s a part of the high society. She’s more likable being her normal, loud ghetto self. She just seems so fake these days. She had a few old NeNe moments when they went to the island (forgot the name) when she got a little tipsy. Wanted to relive her stripper days. NeNe is cool when she’s being herself.

    Now as far as the new normal…glee. Her acting career period. She needs to let that go. That woman cannot act. Every character she plays is the same. NeNe with a different career. Ryan Murphy must really love her because I wouldn’t give her a part as an extra. There’s too many skilled and trained actresses that need work. Her acting just falls flat and seems very forced. It’s kinda painful to watch.

    Her best acting is done on RHOA.

    you seem to have joy from this bit of news…

  16. Rosie

    Well, it’s not surprising the show was cancelled. Very few sitcoms are successful these days, especially one on NBC. I cringed with how NeNe’s ego was swelling..too big too soon. Humility is still attractive, but Nene has never really understood that. It’s great for her that she didn’t quit HWs.. Reality TV is going to remain her career, but at least she’s getting paid well as far as HWs go.

    • smitsa

      Maybe NeNe will take acting classes. She has potential. I’m sure it’s difficult for some people to fluctuate between reality TV and scripted rolls.

      I’m Team NeNe. She seems to be learning and maturing as she progresses.

      .

  17. bravo lova

    Sheeree was great entertainment let’s face it we all watch these shows for drama and good entertainment.She wasn’t scared of BIG HORSE NENE I will love to see her back to battle Nene AND Kenya.But as for MR NENE she can’t act she head is to big she’s not humble im sure Ryan will give another role since he have more shows coming out but she needs to humble her self or more things like this will be coming her way.3

  18. Michelle

    Wow a lot of nene shade in the post lol. There are many people on tv that can’t act and many as well that play the same character or themselves for that matter. It’s hard for a new show to take off but how many can say they were on a sitcom for a major network. I wish her the best. As fr as glee goes it was renewed for two seasons because glee my not be a ratings monster but it does bring in revenue from the music. NBC makes a ton from tht hence the renewal. It ill probably end in season 6 though.

    • Um…no. There are not many actors and actresses who can’t act in non-reality TV. That’s a really odd statement. I’m going with the 2013 positivity thing and assuming you are grasping at straws rather than just stupid.

  19. I just reread my post to see all of this shade I am throwing at Nene. I don’t see it. He show got cancelled, Glee role is reduced due to plot changes and she is coming back to Atlanta where she will be filming two shows that actually pay her real money. What’s the shade again?

    • RealitySux

      Great thing about blogs…YOUR OPINION. Personally – I didn’t see any shade … but even if there were – if they don’t like it…tough toodles.

    • smitsa

      Tamara, you personally didn’t say anything negative. However the sheer volume of all the facts listed in your post, makes it look you are throwing shade. You simply stated the facts as you know them. But taken out of context it seems like shade.

      For example:

      - The New Normal (cancelled)
      - Borderline season
      - NeNe on occasionally – for a hot second
      - NeNe’s small role – greatly reduced
      - NeNe using Kenya’s furniture was a fake storyline
      - NeNe is back to being “just a housewife”
      - She is not going to win her Grammy
      - She makes an obscene amount for someone with her education & talent

      IMO, you weren’t purposely casting shade. During the first read, one might question it. If they read it again and/or more carefully, they would agree its an article just loaded with info.

  20. SSS

    Nene is not a good actress. She has a big/interesting personality which is good for showbiz, but as a host or reality star, not an actress.

  21. Well this makes me sad, not even in a NeNe related way. Sure NeNe basically played herself, but the writing was good and she was fun to watch. I’m a huge Ryan Murphy fan. I love his shows and I think the New Normal is funny and endearing. I’m disappointed to see it go so soon. That being said, it’s all about ratings. And I don’t know a single person besides myself that watches it.

    For anyone that’s been watching Glee, it’s looking like NeNe’s role is getting bigger, not smaller. Since Jane Lynch’s character recently left the school, NeNe has had several scenes the last two episodes. I hope to see more of her acting there, and maybe on a new show, but we’ll always have Atlanta. If NeNe’s smart, she’ll never give up Bravo.

    • Not A Kim Z Fan

      I watched it faithfully. Tuned in because of NeNe but stayed because of the feminist, vegetarian, and smarter than every single adult on the show little girl. She really tickled me. Oh and the grandmother. She reminded me of the Archie Bunker and George Jefferson characters in her anti-political correctness. Loved her – even if she did make me want to punch her in the damn mouth every time she said something LOL

  22. This show started out good. The little girl as little Edie showed promise and great quirk. But after that it got less and less quirky and EVERYTHING was a message. Ok. We get it. Gay people are the best people on earth! But that gets so old so quick. Nene was a parlor trick. He acting was horrendous so you can only think that she had an ongoing cameo like getting Divine or an ex porn star to have a recurring role as a bit of an inside joke. Only I don’t think nene was in on the joke. She really thinks she can act. That’s kind of sad. The scene where she tried to do an Eddie Murphy thing and play her own parents? Embarrassing!!!

    • I agree, I found the show hit and miss. I only saw probably one all the way through. I loved the kid. But Ryan Murphy ‘s problem in general is everything is a message. That is why Glee started out well and just gets worse and worse. Nene’s participation has no influence whatsoever on either show.

    • Lori

      I especially agree about the Eddie Murphy style skit, and the worst part is that she is so proud of that. As if it was such a fine example of her talent. It actually makes me feel sorry for her, the way she spoke about it when Andy showed that clip during her one on one interview, and the way she spoke about it. Poor Nene. But as I said before… I hope that this humbles her a bit.

  23. Katrina

    Nene had a great opportunity and she didn’t waist it. I liked the New Normal, it was growing on me. I knew it was going to be a risky show, due to the fact it is about a gay couple. If Nene was so unpleasant to work with, she would not have been on either show. Since Nene started on RHOA, she has talked about wanting to live in LA. I am glad she found an opportunity. Nene went from being a real housewife to being a provider for her family, in a very bad economy. I wish her well. She rented a place in LA, she received good advice. I also think it was better for her to have her family in one place, instead of traveling back and forth. I personally get tired of having to travel all the time, it is nice to be in one place sometimes.
    If Nene loses everthing, she will land on her feet and find another way to make money. I don’t think Nene will be building “Neverland” anytime soon. I don’t think Nene is attached to any place she has lived. It is okay to live your dreams!

  24. sammiejane

    I would like to say I am surprised Nene’s show (The New Normal) was cancelled; however I am not. She has now become the voice of reason on RHOA…whaaaaa? Where the hell does she get the idea she is so important she gets to pick and choose who gets to stay on RHOA??? She is inconsequential to me….. The chicken neck and pushed out lips is just annoying. If I was a prominent black woman in Atlanta I would not like her representing me!!! :(

  25. terry macon

    I truly love the new normal the story line was to early in the show, okay so let’s run with it, sheri oteri should be the nanny then a season of daycare let’s keep
    Rolling, I am retired and I do enjoy a laugh, NeNe will be fine she is now a new normal person. Good luck NeNe
