NeNe Leakes recently boogied her way from The Real Housewives of Atlanta to Dancing With The Stars. We’re sure her strong personality will make season eighteen very, very interesting. But will she be another Lisa Vanderpump? According to NeNe, that’s out of the question. She boasts plenty of dance experience and she’s sure it’ll give her a leg up on the competition.
Critics on Facebook love to highlight the fact that NeNe Leakes got her start as an exotic dancer. These naysayers may soon be eating their words, for while they view NeNe’s exotic dance experience as a negative, the reality star believes that it will help her out on Dancing With The Stars.
During a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, NeNe confessed, “In my twenties I was an exotic dancer…I’m going to bring it!” The reality star added that her seductive dance style would be perfect for earning votes from the show’s male audience.
Of course, as concerned Twitter followers point out, NeNe must contend with her recent health scare. Due to a blood clot from a few months ago, her dances may not be as physically challenging as those of, say, Olympic skater Meryl Davis. But that’s not bothering the celeb, for she feels her personality is more than enough to make up for any lack of stamina. “My strategy is to bring a lot of soul and a lot of personality, which I don’t think a lot of those Olympic athlete people have. I want to make sure that I bring energy and pop.”
Do you think NeNe Leakes’ dancing experience will help her capture that mirror ball trophy? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
