NeNe Leakes has done quite a bit since she introduced herself to the world on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s been on The Apprentice, she’s tried her hand at network television, including having recurring roles on NBC’s short-lived The New Normal and FOX’s Glee, but now she’s about to take a page out of Kenya Moore’s book and get her “Team Twirl” on as a cast member of Dancing With The Stars.
At least, that’s what sources say.
Dancing With The Stars has been making some big changes to the show to get prepared for season 18 (including doing some firing of Brooke Burke-Chavet as co-host and hiring sports reporter Erin Andrews as her replacement), and part of those changes include a whole new cast of stars to get their dance on. According to E! News (who broke the news about Brooke Burke-Chavet’s firing), Leakes and former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner for those who used to watch) are on board to compete in the new season.
ABC hasn’t decided to speak on casting rumors, because they plan to unveil the full cast on March 4 on Good Morning America. But once the cast is announced, folks will be paired with their dancing partners and prepare for the season premiere on March 17.
So what do you think about such a possibility? I would love to see NeNe bust out the Pasodoble for Team Tall (represent!) and battle for the mirrorball trophy, but what about you?
