The reality star is obviously excited about her new gig and Tweeted last night, "Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I'm so proud of myself."

Her Twitter was flooded with congratulatory messages and she later Tweeted again, 

"Studying lines now! My memory is just gone LOL! Gotta head right back 2 the Glee set after the holidays."

Looks like NeNe will be an exciting addition to Glee in the new year, and she's not the only one. Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin have already been announced as guest stars on the show in 2012 as well.

Are you looking forward to seeing NeNe take on the McKinley High kids?
