Glee's Nene Leakes is set to join a racy version of Cirque du Soleil for a Las Vegas residency.

The actress/reality Tv star will join the cast of Zumanity, a show billed as "the sensual side of Cirque du Soleil", for a 10-gig run in honour of the production's 10th anniversary.

Leakes will play the Mistress of Sensuality in the show at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Sin City.

She says, "I am so excited to be starring in Zumanity. The show is absolutely fabulous and the cast members are so talented! I can't wait to be in the sexiest show on The Strip and perform on a Cirque du Soleil stage!"

The residency will take place from 27 June (14) to 1 July (14).
