NeNe Leakes may no longer be strutting her stuff on Dancing With The Stars, but that in no way means she’s finished with the world of showbiz! The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is currently preparing for Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity, in which she’ll be featured at the end of June.
Facebook critics aren’t too enthused about the idea of NeNe Leakes joining Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity. After all, as the reality star proved during her short tenure on Dancing With The Stars, she’s not exactly the most graceful diva out there. But as she made clear when she first announced her intention to join Zumanity, NeNe will not be performing any of the contortions one typically associates with Cirque du Soleil. In an earlier interview with Access Hollywood, she revealed that she had no intention of performing flips…or taking off her clothes, for that matter!
Although her role in Zumanity lacks the usual Cirque du Soleil acrobatics, NeNe still is committed to preparing for the show. In addition to long rehearsals, she has also spent plenty of time posing for exclusive photo shoots. The other day, the reality star shared a behind-the-scenes picture of a Zumanity shoot with her Twitter fans, along with the following caption: “Behind the scenes at my sexy shoot with Cirque #Zumanity! Get your tickets, hunni. June 27-July 1st in Vegas!”
What do you think of NeNe Leakes’ Cirque du Soleil role? Does the reality star have what it takes to star in Zumanity? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it, so feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
