This article contains spoilers!

Last night on Dancing With The Stars, NeNe Leakes danced the foxtrot with her original partner, Tony Dovolani. Nene got tired of pretending to be sweet, witty and charming and went back to her true self….Nay-Nay from Athens. It’s hard pretending to be someone your not. Like she does on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, this week Nene brought conflict and jealousy when she reunited with Tony Dovolani after dancing last week with Derek Hough. NeNe stormed out of practice, huffing and puffing that Tony was giving her attitude! Hmmmm….seems like the only one with an attitude in that session was Nene.

NeNe being the bad actress she cried throughout her post-performance interview.
