Reality star NeNe Leakes landed a seat at the judges' table at the upcoming Miss USA 2013 pageant.
The original cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta shared the news of her latest gig via Twitter.
"Excited to help select the next #MissUSA, I will be judging the competition live on @NBC Sunday at 9pm ET! Bloop," the mother of two wrote, before posting another tweet describing her excitement about the annual competition. "Get ready all u Pageant Queens! I'am the new judge this Sunday 4 MISS USA! U don't wanna miss this."
The Miss USA 2013 pageant will be held on Sunday, June 16, and air on NBC at 9 p.m. EST.
The 62nd annual Miss USA pageant will broadcast live from the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Giuliana Rancic will host for the third year in the row and Nick Jonas will co-host with her for the first time. Together they will emcee the event with contestants from 51 states, who will be judged in the swimsuit, evening gown and interview categories. The winner will be crowned at the end of the two-hour show by Miss USA 2012 winner Nana Meriweather.
Leakes' season 5 castmate, Kenya Moore, won the Miss USA title in the 1990s. On May 23, Moore was asked if she had her own spinoff show and she told a reporter that it was reality competition show for beauty pageants.
"I have a show in development and it's called Make Me A Beauty Queen," Moore told EUR Web. "It's like a real life pageant but it's a competition and you'll have these challenges to get to the next round."
Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen debunked the rumor of a spinoff show for Moore when he recently wrote on Twitter, "she has one its called the real housewives of atlanta! And it's awesome!"
