Nene Leakes Will Star In New Series Chronicling Her Wedding
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes has spent a good part of the year using some actual acting skills on The New Normal. However, the reality star is actually planning to re-marry husband Gregg Leakes and to immortalize the nuptials, Leakesí home network, Bravo, is planning a Real Housewives spinoff series following the events leading up to the wedding.
Currently rolling with the title I Dream of Nene: The Wedding, the series will follow Leakes while she is in the throes of wedding planning. The actress and reality star has already hired wedding planner Tiffany Cook to help make the big day special. According to THR, members of Leakesí bridal party will also be included in the series, with Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton taking prominent roles. Other celebrities will pop up in the program
Nene and Gregg split in 2011 after 14 years of marriage. The two quietly reconciled in 2012 and were re-engaged this January. It's been a rollercoaster of a romance, but hopefully, I Dream of Nene will chronicle newfound happiness.
This isnít the first time that Bravo put together a Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff. The first was Kim Zolciak's spinoff, Donít Be Tardy, which is now in its second season on the network. Donít Be Tardy pulled in about 2 million viewers an episode in its first outing, which was enough to invite its return. If Leakesí series does well, it may last beyond her impending nuptials into a second season. Executive producers on the series include Leakes, Lauren Eskelin Glenda Hersh, Carlos King, Megan Sanchez-Warner, and Steven Weinstock. No premiere date for the new series has been set, but weíll let you know when Bravo announces the official title and the premiere date for the series.
