NeNe Leakes is the figurehead of Bravo's hugely popular and shamefully addicting Real Housewives franchise—she, of course, is the Queen Bee of Atlanta. But beyond RHOA, NeNe is a bonafide TV star thanks to roles and appearances on Glee, Dancing with the Stars, The Apprentice and The New Normal. And beginning November 25, Leakes will be a Broadway headliner.
