'Real Housewives' star NeNe Leakes to return to Broadway

NEW YORK (AP) — NeNe Leakes, who moved on from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," is moving back to Broadway.

Producers of the long-running hit musical "Chicago" said Thursday that Leakes will play "Mama" Morton in the show at the Ambassador Theatre from Nov. 23 through Dec. 20.

It's her first return to Broadway since she made her stage debut last year in the role of Cinderella's wicked stepmother in "Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella."

She played Coach Roz Washington on Fox's "Glee" and appeared on NBC's "The New Normal" and ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

Leakes didn't return for the eighth season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
