NeNe Leakes Joins “Dancing With The Stars”


The rumors were true! “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” and troublemaker NeNe Leakes will bring her moves to this season of “Dancing With The Stars” (and in other news, the ABC network just gained a new audience). The official cast of “DWTS” was revealed and NeNe and Billy Dee Williams (the oldest person to ever be on the show) are among the list. According to reports, dancers get paid $125,000 just for signing on and $10,000 a week for the first few weeks. If they make it to the final round contestants will be making upwards of $50,000!

“I do NOT have two left feet, I can tell you that,” NeNe said. She is clearly after that check! NeNe and the cast headed over to “Good Morning America” to make the big announcement this morning. In case you missed it, NeNe has a history of dancing. She used to be a stripper until her husband Gregg pulled her out of the club. Those moves may come in handy now!

Here’s the full list:

Billy Dee Williams & Emma Slater

Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas

Charlie White & Sharna Burgess

Cody Simpson & Witney Carson

Danica McKellar & Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Diana Nyad & Henry Byalikov

In other NeNe news, she and supermodel Naomi Campbell (who’s rocking a new natural look) have been spotted on the set of a secret project. “Me & @naomicampbell doing the MOST 2day! We have had the best time,” she wrote in Instagram.
