Being on The Real Housewives of Atlanta has opened many doors for NeNe Leakes — but this may just be her biggest opportunity yet! The reality star is set to take over Sherri Shepherd’s role as the wicked stepmother in Broadway’s Cinderella!
The former The View host will star her 11-week stint on Sept. 9, and NeNe will take over on Nov. 25 until the show closes on Jan. 3, 2015. The news comes not long after it was announced that KeKe Palmer will be the production’s final Cinderella, making her the first African-American to take on the role on Broadway.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is expected to return to Bravo this fall, so it’s likely we’ll see NeNe as she prepares for the iconic role.
