NeNe Leakes has conquered the worlds of reality TV and television sitcoms, so is Broadway her next stop? Sure is, if you believe sources close to the Broadway revival of Cinderella who spoke out.
The sources claim that our favorite girl from the Real Housewives of Atlanta is competing with former co-host of The View, Sherri Shepherd for the role of the fairy godmother in the staged version of the Rogers & Hammerstein musical.
Well, this may be good news for Wendy Williams. If NeNe lands the role, it could delay her rumored talk show. And who would not want to see NeNe play a fairy godmother? She could turn out advice like, “Close you legs to married men!”

Of course this is all hearsay. But the sources who spoke to RadarOnline, claim that both NeNe and Sherri have both already auditioned for the role and both really want it.
Personally, I think NeNe would be a hoot! But, Sherri may need the income. She recently left her chair at The View and is in the middle of a couple of pretty ugly custody wars — one about a baby that has yet to be born!
NeNe on the hand, is busy, busy, busy with her new HSN clothing line, personalizing her Birkin bags, threatening certain talk show hosts about pursuing her own talk show and starring on the next season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Speaking of next season of RHOA, that is exactly one of the reasons NeNe wants to land the role on Broadway. According to the source, NeNe is “truly hoping to get the role. She feels it would be a great opportunity and her fans would definitely turn out to support her. It would also be a great storyline on the Real Housewives of Atlanta“.
TELL US! DO YOU THINK NENE CAN PULL OFF THE ROLE OF CINDERELLA’S FAIRY GODMOTHER ON BROADWAY?
