The loud, vivacious and sassy diva has landed a new role on NBC’s fall lineup in ‘The New Normal’, a new comedy about a gay couple trying to start a family. Recently, Nene attended NBC’s Upfront Presentation and spilled some tea on her character.
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.
Nene is definitely trying to maintain living up to her coined phrase ‘I’m very rich b*tch!” She may not be cashing in anymore ‘Trump Checks’ but she sure has plenty checks flowing in heavy rotation. She currently has a recurring role on ‘Glee,’ and of course, a starring role on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which has already begun filming its fifth season. Three gigs may be a heavy load but Nene says she can do it all.
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.
