Bam! NeNe Scores Wedding-Themed Spinoff Keeping the Bravo Paychecks Coming!

30th Annual PaleyFest - 'The New Normal'

Bravo is saying “I do” to NeNe and Gregg Leakes.

The cable network has greenlit its second Real Housewives of Atlanta wedding-themed spinoff, giving series orders to “I Dream of Nene: The Wedding.”

Following Kim Zolciak’s spinoff, I Dream of Nene (working title) will feature the former spouses planning their wedding of a lifetime as The New Normal actress enlists the help of celebrity wedding planner Tiffany Cook to plan the ceremony. Nene’s bridal party, including Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton, will also be prominently featured during the series.

Premiering in the fall, the series will feature plenty of Housewives and celebrities as the invited guests make the trek to the “Hollywood of the South” for the NeNe’s second chance at happiness.

The series comes as NeNe — one of the original Real Housewives of Atlanta — is awaiting word on the fate of NBC’s freshman effort The New Normal, where she starred as the assistant to Andrew Rannells in the hit comedy.

Zolciak’s spinoff, Don’t Be Tardy, is in its second season, while Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel’s wedding effort Bethenny Ever After ran for three seasons.

Nene Leakes returns to Glee on Thursday, where she’ll reprise her role as Coach Roz Washington on the Fox musical.

TELL US: Will you tune in to watch Gregg and NeNe walk back down the aisle?
