NeNe Leakes' New Spin-off Show Sounds Dreamy but Dangerous

NeNe and Gregg LeakesAnother day, another Real Housewives spin-off. This one is major though, because it goes to the fabulous "rich bitch" NeNe Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

It will focus on her walk down the aisle with fiance and ex-husband Gregg Leakes. (If you don't follow RHOA, NeNe and Gregg were married once, divorced, reconciled, and are marrying again.) The working title is "I Dream of NeNe," which is as catchy as it is silly. But the show definitely has some potential, especially because crazy Marlo Hampton is going to be featured prominently on it, according to Bravo. If you remember last season, you know that Marlo and NeNe together are a force to be reckoned with for sure.


It's supposed to premiere this fall, and it's hard to imagine how crazy their dream wedding will be. NeNe isn't exactly subtle. Since she's been splitting her time between Hollywood and Atlanta, the guests could come from across the country. We could see some from her show The New Normal as well those from Glee. And, of course, there are her RHOA co-stars. Will Phaedra Parks get an invite? Will Kim Zolciak, with whom she just recently reunited?

So many questions, and so much fodder for a good show. I'm not typically a big fan of the spin-offs and wish they just keep it all on Housewives, but this one sounds pretty good. NeNe is such a big personality, there is no danger of her not being able to carry a show. There is, however, a very real danger that with this and all of her other endeavors, she'll soon go the way of Bethenny Frankel and Kim Zolciak and get too big for Housewives just like they did after they got spin-offs.

Will you watch NeNe's spin-off? Do you think she'll leave RHOA after this?
