Report: NeNe Leakes To Join E!’s ‘Fashion Police’

Published: Sunday 28th Sep 2014 by David


Kenya Moore may have struggled to build a likeable brand outside of the Bravo series, but should she need tips on how to do so we’d say she needn’t look any further than her ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ sister NeNe Leakes.

For, after rising to become one of Bravo’s more lucrative characters, securing a recurring role on the hit series ‘Glee‘, working on her magic on the short lived ‘The New Normal’, rocking ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ and waltzing her way to higher celebrity ground on ‘Dancing with the Stars‘, Leakes is now being considered for the “lead role” on E!’s ‘Fashion Police.’

Details below…


According to reports that have surfaced this week, the passing of the show’s star Joan Rivers saw execs over at E!’s mother network NBC set their sights on comedienne Kathy Griffin, whom Rivers had been a longtime supporter of.

Unfortunately for Kathy, the reported success of Leakes’ HSN clothing line and her ratings-grabbing run on ‘Housewives’ have given producers cause to pause and consider the Reality TV royal for the role, potentially cutting her out of the casting picture.

Add to this the E!’s reported plans to offer their viewers more diversity, NeNe now stands as a serious contender for the position, which would see her replace Joan and join Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos on the fashion forward panel.

Why NBC Universal may be eager to jump into bed with NeNe? Well, they already are, reportedly crediting her for the continued success of ‘Housewives’, which they own through E!’s sister company…’Bravo.

Your thoughts?

    Kathy is not that funny
    They should try Lisa Lampenelli if they are that desperate

    Can’t they just cancel the show? It’s nothing without Joan.Let’s be real,who actually tuned in to watch Kelly Osbourne?

    Joan is just irreplaceable. Punchline Queen. R.I.P. Ms Rivers

    I know what y’all are saying but that show is doing too well for them to cancel it. Nobody thought The View would work without Barbara W but it’s doing very well. Sometimes change is important. I personally would like to see Kathy and Nene join the show and alternate. Then when they see who people like more, they fire the least popular one.

    I feel like Wendy Williams would be a perfect replacement

    Nene wasn’t on my radar to replace Joan Rivers on Fashion Police, but when you think about it, she makes more sense than Kathy Griffin. KG is funny and not afraid to rip people apart, but she has no place on any fashion review show. KG is usually on the worst dress lists. JR was one of the few female comedians known for having a stylish image.

    Why throw shade at Kenya? So not necessary… I think she’s doing just fine especially since she’s doing next season of celeb apprentice. Don’t like the concept of bringing one person down to bring another up. Anyways, I love nene but she’s not a comedian nor is she someone people would want for fashion advice. I think they need someone who’s a comedian and knowledgeable in the fashion world. What about Sarah Silverman or Betty White?

    It could work with her but the thing is only young people know who Nene Leakes.. The older people know who Joan is, so I don’t think they will watch show with Nene, not knowing who she is. especially the older white people

  15. OMG Logic!!! September 28, 2014

    What’s a Nene and why is it leaking?
