NeNe Leakes may have truly arrived after all!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star made her Broadway debut on Tuesday in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella”.

Leakes played Madame, Cinderella's wicked step-mother. The role placed her opposite Keke Palmer, who portrays young Cinderella.

NeNe Leakes is continuing to add to her acting resume, having previously starred in Glee and The New Normal.

The 46-year-old reality starlet even had a role in the Cirque Du Soleil show Zumanity as the Mistress of Sensuality.

Leakes is also said to be making the move to daytime television. She is set to replace Sherri Sheppard on ABC's The View.

As NeNe Leakes work to make her acting career a mainstay, there are those who wonder if it means she'll be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta behind.

The seventh season of the series follows her Broadway debut, as well as her ongoing feud with Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore.

Speaking of Moore, the Housewives cast-mate has reportedly been less than supportive of Leakes' Broadway endeavor.

According to Reality TV Magazine, Kenya Moore took to her blog to diss NeNe Leakes and her acting debut.

Moore even went so far as to go off about Leakes' checkered past.

Said Kenya, “I have been respectfully employed since the age of 14, managing to stay off a pole and out of jail. Therefore, for 20 plus years I have been around the block working. NeNe cannot say the same.”

Moore seems to be upset that doors continue to open for Leakes, especially since she makes it clear that she feels superior to her RHOA co-star.


The standing ovation brought me to tears! What a Nite

In addition to going off about NeNe Leakes' past, Kenya Moore made it clear that she thought the woman ugly and irrelevant.

Well, even if Moore is less than pleased with Leakes' current situation, the latter doesn't seem to bothered.

NeNe Leakes will portray Cinderella's step mother for the final leg of the play before it closes on January 3rd.
