Reality star alum and actress NeNe Leakes will get to add some fabulosity to this year’s NBC-TV’s annual new year’s eve festivities. The diva will hobnob with the likes of Carson Daly as part of a comedy panel he hosts, “New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly” that will take place at New York City’s famed Times Square according to US Weekly.

NeNe, who after seven seasons, left the reality show that helped put her name up in lights, “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” grew tired of the negativity that seemed to take over the show. While Nene was a ‘housewife’ and thereafter, she has always maintained a pretty hectic career schedule. She had a recurrent role on the defunct sitcom “Glee,” was a series regular on NBC-TV’s “The New Normal,” acted in a couple of Broadway productions, was a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” and will even be a judge on the upcoming ABC-TV revival 1950’s game show “To Tell the Truth.” In addition to performing, NeNe also manages to oversee her fashion line, The Nene Leakes Collection for the Home Shopping Network and there is also a jewelry line as well.

NeNe will be joined by Bravo’s Andy Cohen, comedian Whitney Cummings and actor/comedian Rob Riggle, all whom will also appear on the show, “New Year’s Eve Game Night With Andy Cohen” which precedes Daly’s program according to US Weekly. “Grandfathered” star John Stamos, actor Bob Saget and funnyman JB Smoove will join the ‘Game Night’ hijinks as well.

She Tweeted, “New Years Eve n NYC Times Square just got fabulous!”
