Two gay dads and a baby mama create a totally new kind of family comedy…now tag on the assistant of the gay couple’s lawyer, Rocky played by NeNe Leakes and you have The New Normal!
Ms. Linnethia Leakes has been one busy lady these days; she’s gone from television personality on RHOA to actress in her recurring role as Coach Roz on Glee. She’s also played herself in BET sicoms The Game and Let’s Stay Together. Let’s not forget NeNe was a contestant on the eleventh season of Donald Trump’s The Celebrity Apprentice (which made her “very rich”).
Of her new role on The New Normal, she had the following to say to reporters about her character during NBC’s upfront presentations:
“I’m Rocky, one of the gay guy’s assistants. I take it very personal, honey, if you talk about my gays, honey. Only I can talk about them and I’m fabulous. She’s very different from Roz Washington on Glee; 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.”
Will NeNe leave Glee or BRAVO’s RHOA?
“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.”
Enjoy The New Normal trailer below, which will air Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. (EST) starting this fall.
