She experienced a brief setback when The New Normal was cancelled, but that’s not stopping NeNe Leakes from continuing her ascent to stardom. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star recently caused a stir on Facebook, when she announced her plan to take part in Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity.
From exotic dancer to Dancing With The Stars cast member to Cirque du Soleil star…NeNe Leakes certainly has advanced up the showbiz career ladder! The celeb recently revealed her intention to join the cast of Zumanity, one of Cirque du Soleil’s most popular shows.
After gossip surrounding her new gig leaked online, NeNe issued a statement confirming the rumors. “I am so excited to be starring in Zumanity…I can’t wait to be in the sexiest show on The Strip and perform on a Cirque du Soleil stage.” She also made a point of sharing the news on Twitter, announcing, “I am headed to Vegas! Watch out show girls.”
At first, when fans learned of NeNe Leakes’ Zumanity gig, they wondered how in the world the reality star — who has struggled with somewhat low scores on Dancing With The Stars –would be able to keep up with vetted Cirque du Soleil performers. No worries — NeNe will not be taking part in any acrobatics. The celeb told Access Hollywood, “Zumanity is very provocative. It has a little bit of nudity…I will be dancing in the show.” NeNe later clarified that, while other stars would be stripping, there would be “no nudity for me.”
