*NeNe Leakes made her Broadway debut Tuesday night in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and paps captured the reality star as she entered Broadway Theater ahead of her big night.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” standout stopped to take selfies with fans outside the venue as her husband Gregg Leakes looked on…before he eventually joined her for pics in front of the stage door.
Hours later, NeNe made her debut as the wicked stepmother Madame to a sold out house.
Broadway.com’s Buzz, called her debut “magical” and titled its review “Bravo, Madame!”
“Waking up this morning in a daze like what just happened! I stood before a SOLD OUT Broadway theatre screaming my name!,” NeNe gushed on her blog. “The overwhelming amount of love & support brought me to tears! I have so many people to Thank this morning. You might get tired of me today because I will be posting lots of pictures of last Nite. I can’t believe this. Like I really can’t believe this!”
NeNe, who replaced Sherri Shepherd in the role, ends her Madame run on Jan 3.
Star Keke Palmer, Broadway’s first black Cinderella, praised the “RHOA” star after her premiere. She posted a photo of the two with the caption, “I am so proud of you @neneleakes!! You came prepared & your consistent hard work shined through. I am so very proud of you, & it will only get better & better, it was already so amazing at that!! Love always”.
And of course there as an afterparty for NeNe’s big night. The blog YBF has all the tea and pics here.
