NeNe Leakes just barely confirmed that she will be a contestant on Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars, but the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is already having a blast in the studio. NeNe recently posted a video on Instagram, that showcased her husband Gregg Leakes testing out his twinkle toes with her partner, Tony Dovolani.
"My hubby is taking my place in the ball room today! My legs hurt LOL," NeNe wrote next to the short clip.
The hilarious video starts off with Gregg dipping Tony, before Tony leads him around the room in what appears to be a quick step sequence. Gregg even squeezes in a graceful twirl and a fleeting arabesque.
Now, we don't know how NeNe will fare out on the dance floor, but we have to give Gregg props for his little performance here — he's actually pretty good!
The competition is just a few weeks away, with a March 17 premiere date. We can already tell that Tony and NeNe are going to be great together as partners, although it's not guaranteed that they will stick it out for the duration of the season. In a new twist, viewers will be able to vote to switch up celebs and their pros in the middle of the season.
We're hoping NeNe makes it that far and even takes home the mirror ball! Better get Gregg off the floor and start working it, girl!
