Dancing With the Stars 2014: Are You Happy NeNe Leakes Was Cast?

The Dancing With the Stars Season 18 cast was announced yesterday morning, and one of the names that immediately caught fans' attention was NeNe Leakes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star turned legit actress — have you seen her guest starring on Glee? She's hilarious! — is one of the biggest names in the new cast (she's one of only three stars to have a Twitter following in the millions), but that doesn't mean the entire DWTS audience is thrilled to see her on the list.

Here at Wetpaint Entertainment, we're big NeNe fans. Whether she's dishing her particular brand of wisdom on RHoA or bringing her comedy chops to scripted shows, she's always a good time. We think she could be the comic breakout of the season — and who knows, with the ever-patient Tony Dovolani as her partner, she could also turn out to be a dancing queen, too. There's no question that she'll bring personality to the ballroom.

However, reality stars always face an uphill battle winning the Dancing With the Stars audience over. Many fans complain they aren't "real" stars, and chose to throw their votes to other contestants. We were excited when Real Housewives of Beverly Hill's Lisa Vanderpump was cast back in Season 16, but she was the second star to go.

So, we want to know: are you thrilled to see NeNe tackle this new challenge, or do you wish Dancing With the Stars would stick to leaving the Housewives on Bravo?
