Chalk this up to Glee Casting News We Did Not See Coming...

The Fox hit has officially added a Real Housewife of Atlanta to its roster, as NeNe Leakes Tweeted today that she will appear on multiple episodes as a rival of Sue Sylvester's. We'll let her explain the details:

"The secret is out! YES I have a recurring role on GLEE! I'm coach Roz Washington the synchronized swim coach! So honored."

And why does NeNe's coach even play a role in 2012? Because Sam will join the synchronized swimming team in order to impress Mercedes. Added Leakes via Twitter:

"Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I'm so proud of myself."

From someone who does not watch any of those Housewives from somewhere, I am going to be hesitant about their choice. Nene might be very good choice but I'll wait and see.


Ok I see you Nene! I could see her little remarks to Coach Sue now. Plus everyone should know that she can act and be dramatic they do it all season long on RHOA.


Nene Leakes on Glee? What were Wanda Sykes, Sheri Shepard, and the lady from the Pine Sol commercials not available?! Or is Glee pinching pennies now and wanted someone cheap with barely any talent?!

Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
