With her sassy attitude and exotic dance background, NeNe Leakes has the potential to go far on Dancing With The Stars. During last night’s season premiere, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star impressed Facebook fans with her crazy booty shaking in a decidedly entertaining cha cha cha with Tony Dovolani.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from her debut performance on Dancing With The Stars, it’s that NeNe Leakes is no Lisa Vanderpump. Thank goodness for small miracles — Lisa wasn’t exactly a thrill to watch on the dance floor. Sure, NeNe could use a little refinement, but what she lacks in technique, she makes up in sheer energy and personality!
Assigned the cha cha cha for night one, NeNe promised fans that she’d be showing off her memorable personality on the dance floor. And that’s just what she did! Although her tecnique was by no means perfect, she received plenty of praise from the judges, along with a respectable debut score of 21. Len Goodman told the contestant, “That’s the way to get the party started – all you can eat buffet of fun and entertainment,” while Bruno Tonioli raved, “We’re just scratching the surface. There is plenty more to come.”
If nothing else, it’s clear that NeNe enjoyed her time on the dance floor. After her big performance, the reality star took to Twitter to exclaim, “Loving this amazing feedback!!!” NeNe also encouraged fans to vote, as it would take more than a 21 from the judges to keep her in the running for the mirror ball trophy.
