Now that the dust has settled, we wanted to take some time to think about what we might expect from Ms. Linnethia on DWTS. She may be easy for outsiders to dismiss as cannon fodder — no thanks to Lisa’s relatively short stint (and faux faint?) in the ballroom competition two seasons ago. But we have high hopes for NeNe!
For one, we know she’s super driven. This is a woman who went from stripper, to reality star, to working actress on not one, but two network sitcoms (Glee and The New Normal, for the unfamiliar). Sure, her RHoA co-stars may have shaded her a bit when The New Normal was cancelled last year, but clearly NeNe’s not sitting around waiting for the next big thing — she’s grabbing the bull by the horns!
And to add to that, the OG Atlanta gal has the personality and audience draw that’s needed to succeed on this show. Just having the moves isn’t enough — though we’ve seen NeNe twerk before, and it wasn’t so bad. Hopefully, American enjoys her straight shooting personality as much as we do — time will tell!
But maybe we’re way off. Tell us what you think in the comments below: How far do you think NeNe will go on this season of DWTS?
