It’s Official!!

The 18th season of Dancing with the Stars just got a whole lot more “Hey Nay Nay”, as the new cast was announced, and guess who is in the star studded lineup? Bravo’s Nene “Nay-Nay” Leakes!  Plonk!

Yes! We can’t wait to watch Nene shimmy, foxtrot, samba, and tango.

Mrs. Leaks will be strapping on her spike Louboutins and donning a ball gown as she hits the dance floor for next season’s DWTS. The Real Housewife of Atlanta star is teaming up with pro dancer Tony Dovolani for the hit competition show, premiering March 17.

She’ll be competing alongside notable names as Candace Cameron Bure, Olympic champs — Meryl Davis and Charlie WhiteDanica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Drew Carey, James Maslow, Cody Simpson, Amy Purdy, Sean Avery and Hollywood legend, Billy Dee Williams.


The fabulous, Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Vanderpump and Dancing With The Stars alum has some sound advice to share with fellow housewife and new DWTS contestant.

Lisa wrote the following words of wisdom to Nene “Nay-Nay” Leakes:

“First off, I have to offer my congratulations, NeNe! The upside of doing Dancing With the Stars: Oh, what an incredible eight weeks of panting, gyrating and legitimately being unfaithful with one of the cutest guys on the planet! Living a dream as you float around the dance floor, camaraderie with a group of people as you fight for survival.

Downside? It’s seven hours a day, you can’t even stand up for seven hours let alone dance. You’re absolutely frozen with fear as you peek outside the curtain, knowing that 20 million people might see you land on your arse. You’re sore in places you didn’t know you had!

But all in all, it’s the most fantastic experience of a lifetime. You join a family with DWTS that stays with you. I will be there sending you love and cheering you on. Bring the glitter ball home to Bravo! You go girl, get your jive on!

        Not to mention she has serious medical issues also.

      She’ll probably quit just like she did on Celebrity Apprentice.

    The big bad moose will be dragging her hoafs around the dancefloor…I can’t wait.

    • Dr Seuss

      Guess she needs the money now that she wont be returning to Glee and New Normal is canceled. She needs to humble herself because things can be taken away with a blink of an eye.

    This is going to be an interesting season.
