NeNe Leakes is one heck of a multi-tasker. She’s been juggling her gig on the Real Housewives of Atlanta with her role on NBC’s The New Normal and her occasional appearances on Glee with her family life and while the average person would be overwhelmed at the mere thought of all that responsibility, she’s embraced it and is even considering adding one more thing to her to-do list.
“My long-term goal is to have a talk show,” NeNe recently told Celebuzz. “I love talk. I love meeting and talking to people, so I would love to have my own talk show.” NeNe certainly doesn’t hold back and that’s a great quality for a host to have. She won’t be afraid to ask the questions that viewers really want to know — much like her Real Housewives counterpart Bethenny Frankel which is promising considering the success that she had on her talk show.
“There’s so many girls that are great,” NeNe admits. “I loved Tyra Banks when she was doing her thing. Of course, you have to love Oprah. She’s the queen. I remember Sally Jesse Raphael. I watched all of those people doing talk. I’d like to be a little bit of each one of them.” NeNe has tackled reality TV and the world of sitcoms, so it seems like the next logical step for her, but how could she possibly fit it into her demanding schedule? It’s hard to believe she has even a spare moment, let alone time for a talk show. Talk shows typically air from Mondays to Fridays so that would be a huge commitment for NeNe.
If one thing is for sure, it’s that NeNe Leakes can do anything she puts her mind to, so don’t be surprised to see her sitting at the host’s chair sometime soon.
