RUMOR REPORT: Nene Leakes, Lamar Odom, Ne-Yo & Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard Might Pull Up For 'Celebrity Big Brother'!


Spoiler alert! Maybe. Word on the curb is that Nene Leakes, Lamar Odom, Ne-Yo and Tiffany “New York” Pollard are joining the cast of this season’s “Celebrity Big Brother.” More inside…

Season 3 of “Celebrity Big Brother” is coming soon and rumors about who will join the cast are trickling in.

After Tamar Braxton was victorious last season, the new season of “Celebrity Big Brother” is rumored to have MORE people of color much like the last season of regular “Big Brother.” According to Twitter user @InsiderCBB, this season will have 14 celebrities.

In 2020, it was reported CBS set diversity targets for their reality casts where 50% of the cast must be Black, Indigenous or People of Color (BIPOC), so they upped the cast from 13 to 14.  And it looks like they may be trying to recreate the success of The Cookout on the latest season of regular "Big Brother".

There are several YBF celebs who may join the cast, including reality queens Nene Leakes and Tiffany “New York” Pollard, as well as singer Ne-Yo and former Lakers baller Lamar Odom:

As you know, Nene Leakes is no longer starring on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” so she has some extra time on her hands for a TV appearance. News of her possibly joining the cast comes months after her husband, Gregg Leakes, passed away.

Back in December, there were rumors that the “Flavor of Love” and “I Love New York” alum was joining the cast, but at the time she said producers hadn’t reached out to her. In 2016, New York appeared on the British “Celebrity Big Brother 17” and finished in fourth place. She’s also co-hosting a new show with rapper CupcakKe titled “Hot Haus” in search for America's "Next Queer Sex Symbol." The show is set to debut on OutTV this fall.


After welcoming a baby girl - named Issabella - in June, Ne-Yo will allegedly be joining the cast.

As he's single these days, Lamar Odom will also be in the mix.  This should get interesting.

”Masked Singer” runner up/singer-songwriter Todrick Hall - who is a huge fan and hosted The Cookout alliance and Derek X at his home after last season of BB - is also alleged to be joining the cast:

It sure looks like “Celebrity Big Brother” is trying to recreate that viral buzz with the casting. IF these predictions are true, we’ll watch when it premieres next month.
