Helen Mirren Joins
The Party Too!

Helen Mirren's voice or NeNe Leakes? Which did you love more on the return of Glee? Keep reading to find out who got our vote!

In between important romance decisions on this week's return of Glee, "Yes/No," there were a few showstoppers.

Helen Mirren and NeNe Leakes made their long-awaited debuts and we have to admit -- they were both worth the wait, for very different reasons.

Before we tell you all about whom Helen Mirren lent her voice to, and trust us, you'll want to know, let's chat about NeNe Leakes.

It was hard to pay attention to Mr. Schue's big proposal plans with NeNe Leakes in the same episode.

The scene stealer made her debut as McKinley's synchronized swim coach Roz Washington and what a splash she made.

From the moment she let Sam on the team so he could prove his athletic ability to Mercedes, Roz Washington was a hysterical force we wanted more of.

From, "Sam Evans! I am Coach Roz Washington and you are one strange lookin' kid," to "I had a dream (in a MLK-esque stance)," the character was perfect in every way.

What's more, NeNe Leakes proved she can hack a network sitcom. This character is more than a one-episode wonder -- we're glad Glee realized it too.

On to Helen Mirren. Mirren's voice was introduced in the first five minutes of "Yes/No" as none other than Sue Sylvester's co-captain of the Cheerios, Becky!

Oh, this was priceless. Becky was on the prowl for a new man, so who better to voice her inner dialogue than a British voice? The reason? In Becky's head she can sound like anyone -- even a British queen.

Becky and her voice set their sights on Artie.

Artie's obsession with spending time with her and a scandalous text message pic sent via Becky led to an intervention and a heartfelt talk between Sue and her buddy.

As for the big relationship answers of the episode, here you go: Mr. Schue put a ring on it, Becky got her heart broken, Sam and Mercedes are still in limbo (at least that's how it looked) and Finn proposed to Rachel! Oh, did we forget to mention that one earlier?

You'll have to wait two weeks to find out what she says -- just like us! Darn! You know what else happens on Glee in two weeks? Michael Jackson, baby!

I've never seen "Real Housewives" (any of them), but I've been a fan of Glee since day one. All I can say is that NeNe was hysterical and proved she has comic chops. I had no idea who she was before she was cast on Glee, but I can't wait to see more of her!

Wendy January 21, 2012 | 11:53 AM

She was very good .. Me and lot other want to see more of her. Stop hating Renee you watch it because she was on it keep it real . If you didn't like it then just don't watch.

NENE is a classless donkey. WHY did they even put her on Glee? She was HORRIBLE. Talk about "OVER ACTING" and since when IS she an actor? And yet she laughed at Sheree for wanting to act?!! Hypocrite much NENE? At least Sheree is taking acting classes and doing small plays around town. Just cuz YOU begged TRUMP to make the Glee call makes you even MORE pathetic.

I enjoyed the show with NeNe on it. I like the fact that she is being well rounded. Normally when people get on here and post classless statements about people, it tells you a lot about them. Yes, NeNe has been apart of drama. Who can not be real with themselves and admit that no one is perfect. You stated you will not watch Glee while she is on the show....well don't watch. You are just one judmental and negative somebody. Have A Blessed Day!!

Renee January 17, 2012 | 7:21 PM

It's hard to se NeNe as anything else but low class and ghetto. She is always so negative and combative with everyone that its a bit irritating. There are not many positive role models on Reality T.V. that you wonder do grown women act like this for real. So seeing NENE as anything else but classless is an understatment and I will not be watching Glee as long as she is on it.
