Nene Leakes is a busy gal these days!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has had success in various areas of television and entertainment this year.

She had a role in the Las Vegas resident show Cirque du Soleil: Zumanity and she's back as Coach Roz for the final season of the musical comedy-drama Glee.

But, that's not all! She also launched her own fashion line, The Nene Leakes Collection, for the Home Shopping Network back in July. The launch of her line was such a success that most of her apparel sold out in the first day!

Now, there's a possibility she could be adding another role to her list. According to Radar Online, the famed reality TV star may be replacing Joan Rivers on E!'s Fashion Police.

An inside source reportedly revealed Nene is seriously being considered as a substantial replacement for the legendary actress-comedienne.

The network has confirmed that the show will continue without Joan. Her daughter Melissa, who also serves as an executive producer for the show, released a brief statement in reference to the show's questionable future.

"We're going to hit pause for a little while, but Fashion Police will be back in January," Melissa said. But, who's going to replace Joan?

Apparently Kathy Griffin is also being considered for the position. But, Perez Hilton reports the network is looking to "diversify their panel with a different ethnicity."

Mrs. Leakes may definitely fit the bill for the show. The Atlanta fashionista is opinionated, comical, and well-rounded! The success of her clothing line is another advantage.

Although the network has yet to confirm whether the rumor is true or not, several media outlets have began associating Nene's name with the popular series.

Will Nene Leakes land the hosting gig for Fashion Police? Fans will just have to wait until the final decision is made!
