NeNe Leakes has landed a role on a series everyone can at least admit is scripted.

The Real Housewife of Atlanta, who actually hasn't been awful as a swim team coach on Glee, will team up again with Ryan Murphy for The New Normal.

A comedic pilot, the show focuses on a gay couple - Book of Mormon's Andrew Rannells and The Hangover's Justin Bartha - who uses a surrogate mother to start a family. Ellen Barkin also plays a role and Leakes will recur as a character named Rocky.

Murphy created Glee and will serve as a producer on The New Normal.

A Real Housewife is about to make a real impact on Glee.

NeNe Leakes confirmed today via Twitter that she's coming on board this Fox hit as a rival to Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester, writing on the social network:

Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I'm so proud of myself... Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I'm so proud of myself.

It's unclear whether or not Leakes will sing on the series, but she'll be featured because a returning Chord Overstreet - as Sam Evans - will join her synchronized swimming squad.
