NeNe Leakes is moving on from The Real Housewives of Atlanta to To Tell the Bloop Truth. E! News has confirmed NeNe will sit alongside Betty White (!!!) and other celebrity panelists on ABC's revival of the classic game show To Tell the Truth.

Like the original game show, this iteration of To Tell the Truth will feature three panelists asking questions of three different contestants: two of them are liars and one of them really did make the invention, discovery or what have you. Here's how ABC officially describes the game: "In each round they will be presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement.  One is sworn to tell the truth while the others are not. The panel of celebrities will have a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth."

Anthony Anderson, the star of ABC's black-ish, will host the new series. No premiere date has been set. Anderson's mother, Doris, will be the show's official scorekeeper and asking questions of her own. The celebrity who panelist who performs the worst will have to tweet a lie about themselves to the world.

NeNe announced she was walking away from Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta after seven seasons and there were hints about a new TV project. A source close to RHOA told E! News the door is still open for NeNe to appear on the hit reality series in some capacity, but everything is still being hammered out.

"This is so hard for me to type! I cry as I do so! I am so Grateful for all the love and laughs!" NeNe wrote on Instagram. "Thank you so much to everyone that has watched and supported me over the years on this amazing platform! With lots of thoughts and prayer I've decided to step out on faith and not fear. #nomoRHOA4me."

In a sitcom twist, we're told Kim Fields of The Facts of Life and Living Single fame could join Bravo's Georgia peaches for the upcoming season, but no deals are finalized yet.

To Tell the Truth ran from 1956-1968 on CBS before being revived in syndication from 1969-1978, 1980-1981 and then on NBC from 1990-1991 before another syndicated revival from 2000-2001.

Do you think NeNe has what it takes to sit alongside TV legend Betty White?
