nene leakesSheree Whitfield, cover your eyes. NeNe Leakes has a new gig. Yeah, The New Normal may have been canceled, but you didn't think that was going to keep NeNe down, did you? Oh, no, no, no, friend. Nobody puts NeNe in the corner (Dirty Dancing reference in case anyone over 12 is reading this).

NeNe has nabbed herself a fab new job -- and it's one she's going to be damn good at.

NeNe is going to be a judge in the Miss U.S.A. Competition. Kenya Moore may be a former Miss U.S.A., but I think we all know that NeNe will make for a much more entertaining judge. Leakes took to her Twitter to share the good news, saying: "Get ready all u Pageant Queens! I am the new judge this Sunday 4 MISS USA! U don't wanna miss this."

No, NeNe. We don't. And to be honest, the fact that you're judging may actually be incentive to watch one of the world's most sexist and vapid "competitions". Yay? I'm not quite sure what makes NeNe, or anyone really, qualified to judge what's ostensibly a pretty contest. But I do know that Mo Rocca is also a judge. And that's weird.

Can't say I'm 100 percent going to tune into the Miss USA pageant on Sunday, as way more intellectual things like Real Housewives of New Jersey, Princesses: Long Island, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians are on. But I'm happy that NeNe's landed herself a new gig. And if I do check the show out, it'll be because of her.

What do you think of this?
