NeNe Leakes has been making her rounds on the talk shows to promote her new gig on Dancing With the Stars. And, in true NeNe form, she’s pretty confident in her odds on the dance competition. But one particular daytime lady is skeptical of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s chances — and she’s not afraid to say it.
The latest stop on NeNe’s whirlwind media tour was last night’s (March 5) ep of Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she flaunted her best asset (her long legs) and tooted her own horn about her dance ability.
“I have on a tall heel, I have long beautiful legs. Honey, I am perfect for dancing,” the OG Atlanta gal said to Jimmy, while displaying her perfectly toned stems for the audience.
“Do you have experience dancing?” the host asked — clearly not ready for the answer he was about to get.
“Well, I have some experience... In my 20s, I was an exotic dancer,” NeNe responded flirtily, adding, “And I have soul, honey, so I’m going to bring it.”
NeNe also showed off her shimmying skills and told Jimmy that she’s gunning for the male vote. We’ve gotta say, with the way she’s been working the crowds, we can see her going far!
One person who doesn’t see the RHoA mainstay making it to the end is Wendy Williams, who also appeared on the ABC competition a few years back.
“Tony Dovolani, my former partner, will be NeNe’s partner… because he always gets the big ones!” Wendy quipped on her daytime show this week. And she managed to squeeze in just a little more shade: “He’s not fun, NeNe. I wish you well, but you all aren’t going to win.”
Zing! Or should we say, bloop!
