The Real Housewives star — who’s made a handful of appearances on Glee this season — has joined the cast of Murphy’s NBC comedy pilot The New Normal.

Also among the latest wave of pilot castings: a Vampire Diaries alum returns to The CW, Notorious adds a Breakout Kings vet and more.

As for Leakes, she joins the project — which centers on a modern-day blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate — as the heavily recurring character, Rocky.
