NeNe Leakes joins ‘Dancing With the Stars’ cast
NeNe Leakes will be taking ABC by storm in just a few weeks! Rumors that “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” queen bee would join the season 18 cast of “Dancing With the Stars” have just been confirmed.
NeNe was announced as part of the cast this morning, and it looks like she’ll be cutting a rug with Wendy Williams’ old partner Tony Dovolani! “I’m so excited. I love clothes!” NeNe said of her upcoming run on the dance competition and all of the fabulous costumes she’ll get to wear. But NeNe’s not so sure about her chances. “I don’t know. I don’t have two left, though! I can tell you that!”
If that wasn’t enough reason to tune in, the ballroom is going to get a serious dose of smooth as none other than Billy Dee Williams competes for the mirrorball trophy! Then there’s an added twist to the season: Partners are going to be switched at one point in the season, and it will be up to the audience who will be dancing with whom.
NeNe and Billy will have some stiff competition this season because Olympic gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis will also be hitting the dance floor fresh from their run at Sochi Olympics.
