Leakes lands on her feet with the revival of a classic game show on ABC

Nene Leakes has waved the 'housewives' goodbye and is headed to ABC to help revamp the classic game show "To Tell The Truth."

The network announced Wednesday it will air a six-episode series hosted by "Black-ish" star Anthony Anderson, with Leakes and actress/comedienne Betty White serving as panelists. There has been no word on a premiere date.

The premise of the show will follow that of the original. Leakes, White and two other celebrity guests will be presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with an incredible talent, job or achievement. It is the panelists' job to find out who's telling the truth.


News of Leakes' new gig comes just days after she announced her departure from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" after seven seasons with the show. She said leaving the series was a "hard decision," but she believed it was the right time to take on other opportunities.
