After being challenged by everyone from her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kandi Burruss to 17-year-old Brielle Zolciak, NeNe Leakes has finally taken the plunge and completed the ALS Ice Bucket challenge.


While Kandi insisted she have her hair professionally styled before dousing herself with water, NeNe went one step further and covered herself from head to toe in protective gear.

In the video, NeNe sports a wetsuit, snorkel, and goggles and challenges all of the original housewives to make their own videos to raise awareness for the cause.

Clearly pleased by NeNe’s contribution to the challenge, Kandi posted the video of NeNe getting doused to her Instagram, writing, “This is one of the funniest challenges I've seen.@neneleakes text me to let me know she had accepted my #ALS challenge. Where the hell did she get a wet suit from???? Lol!”

Although the stunt turned out hilariously, it seems as though it was quite the effort for Nene, who said of making her video,“Chile bye I ain't fooling wit yall. I will post the full video, plus photos & 2 blooper videos tomorrow on my website Neneleakesofficial.com it's a real ke ke chile because I don't play wit water hunni.”

While her methods may have been unorthodox, we’re proud of NeNe (or whatever stunt double was in that wetsuit) for finally buckling down and lending her support to a great cause.

What do you think of NeNe’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video? Are you surprised that she partcipated?
