From Real Housewife to Real Wicked: NeNe Leakes to Make Broadway Debut in ‘Cinderella’

NeNe Leakes just signed on to play wicked stepmother Madame in the Broadway adaptation of Cinderella in November.

While it has been confirmed Leakes and the rest of The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast will be returning for the Bravo TV show’s seventh season, Leakes will have to take a short break from her time in front of the reality-show cameras.

On Nov. 25, Leakes will step in to take the wicked role from former The View co-host Sherri Shepherd who will start out playing Madame on Sept. 9.

The Broadway run will conclude in January 2015.

Taking on an acting role will be nothing new for the dramatic reality star.

Leakes has already had a guest role on the Fox show Glee as well as joined the NBC show The New Normal for the 2012-13 TV season.

Other TV appearances for Leakes include the NBC reality show competition Celebrity Apprenticein 2011 and Dancing with the Stars on ABC earlier this year.

More recently, she also hosted a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas in June.

With a resume like that, the production team behind the Broadway show is sure that Leakes will be able to hold her own on the stage alongside actress KeKe Palmer.

Palmer is making history as the first African-American woman to play Cinderella on Broadway.

“I feel like the reason I’m able to do this is definitely because Brandy did it on TV,” Palmer told The Associated Press when she received the major role. “In me doing this, it shows everybody that everything is possible … Every girl’s dream is that story, so to be able to play [Cinderella] is going to be a dream come true for me. Not to mention that Stuart Weitzman made the glass slippers I’ll be wearing.”

The show will be directed by Mark Brokaw and, according to Broadway.com, this won’t be your average Cinderella story.

“This Cinderella features a completely re-imaged book by (playwright) Douglas Carter Beane and additional Rodgers and Hammerstein songs originally composed for other musicals,”Broadway.com reports.

No reports have been able to confirm why Shepherd has decided not to perform for the entire show run.

The worst part is Not about fairy-tales but about the real life fairly tales they have been telling lies about World history for all these years. And now Europeans really think they created civilization and everything under the SUN- OUTRAGEOUS

I hope this has a very successful run.  Kudos to KeKe and Sheri.

This made me LOL so funny:

You know what this society is so amazingly ridiculous, I think some white people out there really are living in some sort of Warp (they spend all day ignoring the obvious) we are forced to acknowledge them but its like "wait there are BLACK people in this country/world when did y'all get here?" Also what irrks me is on-line I think these are sometimes NON-white people like who also make comments like this-

So, I was in the middle of searching for how long Keke Palmer will be on Broadway as Cinderella. Gotta get my ticket. I scrolled down and saw this first comment:

The reach with this one disneyfied ass tale. They, however, have no problem whitewashing different races and ethnicities and see our disdain as sensitive and “reverse racist.” Case in point: Exodus - God and Kings, the new British-American biblical movie set in Egypt, that has caused uproar and boycotts:

Apparently these are acceptable…

Lemme not go over the post limit. This is just a handful that scratch the surface. 

wROOOONNNNNG

wrrrrroooooonnnnnnnggggg

that asshole commenter was WRONG!!!!

Cinderella is NOT a Western story

Cinderella is NOT a Western story

Cinderella is old as

(I wrote a paper on it in university I HAVE THIS KNOWLEDGE)

There are versions of Cinderella found in the fairy tales and folklore of cultures across Asia, in Africa, and Europe

The oldest version of Cinderella folklorists have found, originated in China THREE THOUSAND YEARS AGO

3, 0 0 0 

The version Disney popularized was based of the relatively contemporary version by Perrault (by which I mean it was published 300 years ago, as opposed to, y’know, 3,000) [also, I think the version that the Broadway musical is based on??]

R E G A R D L E S S

Cinderella is not (only) a Western story

Cinderella is not even originally a Western story

[in fact, I’d bet there was a black Cinderella before there was a white Cinderella]

And, of course, even if Cinderella were a purely “Western” fairy tale

Keke Palmer is an American actress, is a woman from a Western society. Is a perfectly. . legitimate Cinderella.

In conclusion:

Lola Guin,
