NeNe Leakes & Sherri Shepherd are reportedly competing to become Cinderella’s fairy godmother in the Broadway adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
via Radar Online:
Sources familiar with the situation tell us, “Both ladies really want the role, and have already auditioned to land the role as Cinderella’s fairy godmother in the Broadway musical.
“Also in talks to become the next Ella/Cinderella is KeKe Palmer.”
Palmer previously played the role of Cinderella in Nickelodeon’s modern day version adaptation, Rags.
The stage version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella debuted on Broadway in 2013.
Leakes is “truly hoping to get the role. She feels that it would be a great opportunity and her fans would definitely turn out to support her. It would also be a great storyline for the Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the source added.
Honestly, we’d rather pop in a dusty copy of the Brandy & Whitney Houston Cinderella DVD than watch NeNe or Sherri sing in a Cinderella musical.
