According to a report from US Weekly on Thursday, April 19, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes is getting her own spinoff show.
The series, which will feature Leake’s ex-husband Gregg Leakes, will focus on their upcoming wedding and is titled “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding”. The spinoff will air this coming fall and focus on Leakes’ second attempt to make her marriage work.
Leakes’ previous marriage to Gregg lasted 13 years, with a divorce taking place in 2011. The couple rekindled their love and became engaged this past January.
NeNe has shared on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” that she wished they could’ve worked through their marital differences rather than filing for divorce so abruptly.
Celebrity wedding planner Tiffany Cook is slated to work with the couple. NeNe will most likely clash with the wedding planner, as she is known for being a demanding diva who wants everything her way.
Bravo cameras will follow NeNe, who will attempt to balance her blossoming acting career and multiple projects while planning for her upcoming nuptials.
Viewers can count on plenty of drama and laughs. Her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast mates Cynthia Bailey and the disputatious Marlo Hampton will guess star on the show.
It’s doubtful NeNe will invite her estranged half-sisters to her wedding since they have been trading insults back and forth this week via twitter. NeNe feels they are extremely jealous of her fame, and with her new series coming up, Bravo may have another hit.
