Well, it seems that NeNe Leakes’ Hollywood dreams are finally coming true. After landing a number of small guest roles on TV shows like “The Game” and “Glee,” it’s now been confirmed that Leakes has nabbed a long-term role on a new NBC pilot.

Leakes has had a recurring role as rival cheerleading coach Roz Washington on Ryan Murphy’s hit show, “Glee, and according to Deadline, Murphy has now cast Leakes in the new NBC comedy pilot, “The New Normal.”

The show will focus on a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate and Leakes will play the role of a character called Rocky. No futher details were revealed about her role.

Well, if this pans out we may be seeing a lot more of Leakes on primetime TV and less of her on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Though that thought utterly saddens us, kudos to her on landing the role.

And she’s not the only reality TV star who’s been making moves in the industry. Check out some more major reality TV stars below. – nicholas robinson
