Nene Leakes to Guest Star on 'Glee'
By Max Berlinger
In my twisted psyche, there are two worlds: the world of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and the world of Glee, and never the twain shall meet. So it was shocking—shocking, I say!—when a little birdie (who conveniently works in PR) told me that NeNe Leakes, the queen of Hot-lanta, would be making her theatrical debut on the twee musical show. The Fox series has gone on a brief mid-season hiatus, but when it returns on January 17th, Leakes will guest star as William McKinley High's swim coach. Also, Dame Helen Mirren will lend her considerable talent to the episode, as a voiceover for one of the characters. Um, Dame Helen Mirren? That is amazing. Can we please get Dames Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, and Maggie Smith to guest star on an episode and to do a cover of either a Destiny's Child or TLC song? Because then I could die happy.
