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?
