NeNe Leakes: 'I Want to Do It All'
The Atlanta 'Housewives' star has big acting ambitions.
NeNe Leakes is one busy "tall," as the Real Housewives of Atlanta megapersonality is set to unleash her primetime acting chops this year.
The world got a tease of what's to come on NeNe's upcoming NBC show The New Normal, which is set to debut in the fall, and while the most outspoken RHOA plays an assistant to a gay character, she wants everyone to know to keep their opinions to themselves. "I take it very personal, honey, if you talk about my gays, honey. Only I can talk about them and I'm fabulous," she told The Huffington Post during the red carpet for the NBC Upfronts earlier this week.
NeNe, who is currently working her acting prowess on the hit Fox show Glee, says that this character, named Rocky, is totally different. "She's always in workout outfits and sneakers. Rocky wears high heels every day. This is very fitting for me because in my real life, you don't mess with my gays, honey ... I don't play that."

So with all this acting on her horizon, will NeNe still have time to hold a peach in upcoming seasons of Atlanta? According to her: "I hope to stay on 'Glee,' I hope to still be a 'Housewife' and I hope to do 'The New Normal.' I just want to do it all! ... Why not? I'm only going to be young for a little while longer."
