It’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.
I 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.
