Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes just landed the title of special co-host on Fashion Police. People reports that the Bravo personality, who once did something unspeakably terrible to a Birkin (never forget!), will be a fashion critic for the 2016 season of the show. Leakes has appeared on the show on and off since 2013, according to People, and she most recently co-hosted the 2015 Emmys special.

Leakes isn't the only new face on the Fashion Police panel. Comedian Margaret Cho landed a co-host gig in December, and both Cho and Leakes are set to appear on Monday, January 11th for the show's Golden Globes special.

The cast of the show has been in flux since host Joan River's passing, with dramatic and controversial departures of hosts Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne. For 2016, special co-hosts Leakes and Cho will join hosts Melissa Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, and Brad Goreski on the panel.
