Nene Leakes can officially stop pretending she is just sitting by the phone waiting on Ryan Murphy to call her. She is officially finished with Glee. During the recent Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Kevin Reilly, president of Fox, unveiled plans for the remainder of season five and for the finale season of Glee. The bottom line is that the Lima, Ohio set is no more and the show will focus exclusively on the graduates as the make their way in NYC. I don’t think they will need a synchronized swim coach in the big apple.
Nene, who has had a minor recurring role on the show since 2012 will make her twelfth and final appearance on Glee on their 99th episode on March 11, 2014. It is a special episode entitled City of Angels which appears, to me at least, to be a final episode for most of the characters who will not be moving to NYC.
Nene’s other series with Ryan Murphy, The New Normal was cancelled after one season. Nene will continue on with the Real Housewives of Atlanta which was after all the only show that paid her a livable wage. Rumors that Nene is “starting her own production company” are hysterical and unfounded. My guess is that the rumors started when Nene asked for and received an honorary executive producer title on her spinoff show, I Dream of Nene.
Maybe she can do a Celebrity Apprentice Allstars ? Girl needs a trump check. Oh wait, I don’t think you can be an “Allstar” if you quit in your season because you could not hang with the big dogs.
