Watch a Sneak Peek of NeNe Leakes on ‘Glee’
Sam Evans, it's time to meet your swim coach! In this B-roll tape leaked from the 'Glee' set, Sam (Chord Overstreet) comes face to face with his new swim coach, portrayed by 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star NeNe Leakes for the first time, giving us just a little insight into what extracurricular activity life will be like this season at McKinley High.
“Sam Evans! I’m coach Roz Washington – and you are one strange looking kid," the swim coach spurts as she barges into the pool area. "I’ve never seen lips like that on a white child. When I was growing up everybody said that black folks couldn’t swim, but I had a dream! And I swam my way to the promise land and got my forty acres and a pool.”
Apparently, even a newcomer is allowed at least one Trouty Mouth joke as a means of induction into the cast. We don't get to see much of Sam's interaction with his bossy new coach in this clip, but we do totally get why folks are saying she'll be Sue's biggest rival since... Everyone else. They are so gonna butt heads this season!
We think NeNe is an all-star match-up for the hit FOX show -- we're just wondering why they didn't stumble on the 'Real Housewives' celeb sooner! Mr. Schue, aka Matthew Morrison, recently admitted that he actually didn't know who NeNe was before she was picked up and signed in. "I didn’t know who NeNe was. I don’t watch reality TV," he spilled to WetPaint, adding that the kids, Rachel especially, were excited for her arrival.
‘Glee’ kicks off on FOX on Jan. 17 with the ‘Yes/No’ episode.
