I’ve got so much tea happening today that I may burst my bladder. This bit of tea is for the Nene on Glee fans out there. Glee finishes it’s last filming of the season today. Most everyone has packed and left except for Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer. Season three ends with Rachel and Kurt going off to NYC to attend the New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts (NYADA). I know, I know. Who cares? Well Nene fans will. Here’s why.
The big talk on the set this week was about the changes for season four. Glee has more issues to worry about than the fact that today is Cory Monteith’s THIRTIETH BIRTHDAY. I’ve always found it bizarre that the actors on this show are so old. Anyway, I digress. The real problem is that the big names of Glee are graduating seniors with big ambitions so what the hell are the writers going to do? Well, they are going to move the focus away from Ohio, which means away from McKinley High. McKinley High is where Roz Washington works. Ergo, you aren’t going to be seeing as much Roz as you did in season three.
Part of the reason you don’t see Roz on every episode of Glee since she was hired is that Glee has a big cast. There is often a big guest start, like Lindsey Lohan,who is on next Tuesday’s big two hour episode. So even people like Sue, Figgins and Beiste are not on every episode. Next season a considerable portion of the the show will be set in New York following Rachel and Kurt. There is also a rumor that Puck may have some storyline in LA. So while there still will be some scenes at Mckinley High and Coach Roz will still get screen time it will be considerably less. Lea Michele and Chris Colfer are two huge Nene supporters so Nene will certainly miss working with them.
The good news for Nene is that she has a heavily recurring role as Rocky in Ryan Murphy’s new NBC comedy The New Normal which was picked up recently for a fall premiere. So losing a few Glee episodes won’t hurt her pocketbook that much.

Time for another TAMARATATTLES EXCLUSIVE, y’all! Thanks in advance to all the reputable blogs that link and credit me as the source on this story. Shame on the rest of you!
Nene Leakes flew back to L.A. this week to tape a second episode of Glee. My source on the set says that today’s shoot was very long and filmed in the pool/gym of Ventura High School. Nene always seems so happy in her tweets when she is out there filming. To make the day even sweeter for Nene, it’s her birthday! Today’s shoot is not for the Grease episode but for another episode all together. In an interesting side note, WWHL had Dot Marie Jones, the actress who plays Coach Beiste on Glee on last night and Chris Colfer and Lea Michele will be on next week. It’s a regular Glee lovefest. Andy Cohen seems to still love Nene despite rumors to the contrary as he urged all his twitter followers to wish Nene a Happy Birthday today.
Happy Birthday, Ms. Leakes. You are making it really hard for me to hate on you. Congrats!
Update: Although more than one episode is filming at once, my source seems to think today’s scenes will be part of the Michael Jackson tribute episode. Don’t bet the farm on that just yet, but it looks likely. I’ll let you know what I know, the minute I know it!
Are you suprised that Nene has recurring role on Glee? Leave me a comment.
