NeNe Leakes Channels RuPaul for ‘Supermodel (You Better Work)’ on ‘Lip Sync Battle’

Lip sync for your life, NeNe Leakes! In a preview for the Thursday, April 14, episode of Lip Sync Battle, the reality star-turned-actress reaches peak fierceness for a fiery rendition of RuPaul’s iconic 1992 track, “Supermodel (You Better Work).”

In the clip, a bewigged Leakes, 48, wows the crowd as she struts her stuff in a bright red ball gown that any RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant would be jealous of. Joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is a bevy of shirtless, hard-bodied men and showstopping drag queens. The series' unofficial hype girl Chrissy Teigen gets into the performance herself as she busts a move and mimes the song’s lyrics from her post at the DJ booth.

As the Dancing With the Stars alum poses and twirls to the sound of RuPaul’s biggest hit, host LL Cool J and Leakes’ opponent, Todd Chrisley, are clearly impressed. The two guys can hardly keep their mouths closed as they take in the Glee actress’ epic theatrics. 

While it remains uncertain what songs Chrisley plans on covering, it’s apparent that the Chrisley Knows Best patriarch, 47, has some big shoes — or in this case, heels — to fill, given Leakes’ show-stealing number.

Watch the video above. Tune in to see Leakes face off against Chrisley on Spike on Thursday, April, 14, at 10 p.m. ET.
