Looks like the dark overlord of the Bravo empire, Andy Cohen, is feeling generous. According to The Wrap, the girls’ and gays’ network gave the greenlight to a spin-off series for Real Housewives of Atlanta and The New Normal star NeNe Leakes. The show is currently working with the title I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding and is set to air this fall. The show is going to follow walking GIF factory NeNe as she and her ex-husband Gregg plan to remarry each other. She’ll probably be juggling filming RHOA (if she comes back) and The New Normal (if it gets renewed) too.
NeNe is now the third Housewife to get her own wedding special following Reality Show All-Star Turned Sugary Booze Magnate Bethenny Frankel and NeNe’s bewigged archnemesis Kim Zolciak. She is the sixth Housewife to get a spin-off from the popular franchise, after Lisa Vanderpump, Kandi Burruss, and Phaedra Parks. Yes, three, count ’em three, stars from Atlanta, the most popular city, have branched off. Who’s going to be left to hold down the old Bravo spin-off breeding grounds? Personally, I’m still waiting for Jill Zarin to star in Jill Gets a Hobby.
