Dancing With The Stars has encountered several major shakeups these last few weeks, what with the elimination of Harold Wheeler’s orchestra, not to mention Erin Andrews’ new job as DWTS host. It’s all in the name of courting a younger, hipper crowd. Could the casting of Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes assist in this endeavor?
The last time a Real Housewives personality (ahem, Lisa Vanderpump) attempted to take the stage on Dancing With The Stars, the show’s drama factor skyrocketed. Perhaps this is the thinking behind the latest rumors, which suggest that NeNe Leakes may be featured as a season eighteen cast member. ABC never comments on casting rumors and NeNe Leakes is similarly unwilling to join in the Twitter buzz…but we’re sure everyone agrees that NeNe would make DWTS very, very interesting!
A stint on Dancing With The Stars certainly would prove an effective form of promotion for a wannabe actress who has struggled somewhat in her attempts to transition from the ATL to Hollywood. Although she’s already appeared on a wide array of reality shows — including The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Celebrity Apprentice — an additional appearance certainly wouldn’t hurt!
NeNe is one of several supposed Dancing With The Stars cast members targeted by rumors on Facebook. Insiders tell E! that Candace Cameron Bure will also join in the fun. And further gossip suggests that teen sensation Cody Simpson may serve as this season’s attempt to draw in a younger viewership. None of these rumors will actually be confirmed until March 4th, when the entire season eighteen cast will join forces on Good Morning America.
