Nene Leakes is set to appear on a new reality show.
While the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s contract renewal for season 13 is reportedly still up in the air, she’s apparently taking new gigs with other networks. She will be starring on a new TBS show called Celebrity Show-Off.
“Tweeties I’m on a whole new show! TONIGHT is the premiere of @CelebShowOff at 7pm PST/ 10pm EST. It’s abt to get wild y’all,” Nene wrote on Twitter. “U never know what will happen or who will show up. you’re used to seeing me on RHOA but you’re abt to see me n a whole new light. #CelebShowOff on TBS
The concept of the show features “some of your favorite celebrities” competing against each other to see who has “the most compelling content.” All of the content is produced within their homes, and the longer celebs stay in the competition, the more money they raise for their charities. Among the celebrity contestants are Tori Spelling, Ja Rule, and Bella Thorne.
The news comes a week after rumors of Nene pursuing a spinoff show with E! and possibly leaving RHOA for good. Although nothing was officially confirmed (and she earnestly denied being fired), it appears Nene is definitely seeking other opportunities outside of Bravo.
A source for The Sun shared that if Nene does leave RHOA, she wants to do so “on her own terms” and “already has something in the works.” However, a rep for Bravo noted that “conversations for the next season are still ongoing” with Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, and Nene all sent contracts to return full-time.
Perhaps Nene will pursue small roles such as this in addition to RHOA, although the path forward for her peach-holding status is still unclear.
Celebrity Show-Off airs Tuesdays on TBS at 10/9c.
