The next episode of "Glee" promises more of the usual high school drama and song and dance fun that fans have come to expect, but it also features a "Glee" first: NeNe Leakes.
As announced last week, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" reality star will join the show as a recurring guest star. Now FOX has released the first photo showing Leakes in character. In the shot, Leakes, as swim coach Roz, faces off with Chord Overstreet's Sam.
Fans won't learn what the poolside hubbub is about until the episode airs Jan. 17.
Until then, Gleeks can enjoy this Leakes-free promo for the episode.
Those looking for other Leakes fixes in the new year will have plenty of opportunities to catch the frequent feuder on the small screen. In addition to her "Housewives" duties, she recently revealed that she'll also appear on BET's "The Game" and "Let's Stay Together."
