Nay Nay may call people the b-word on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but NeNe Leakes is a very different woman.

So far, NeNe has stayed out of the drama on Dancing With the Stars Season 18 — letting her partner Tony Dovolani be the one to speak up — and on March 30, she shared a positive, inspirational message on Instagram:

"22 years ago I was lost, scared, trapped & a single mom! I cared enough abt myself 2 change my life! With God anything is possible! Thank u 4 letting me be your inspiration! U can do it"

Of course, the Instagram pic also showed off her new hairstyle and sexy black jacket. Do they inspire you, too?

Later the same day, NeNe shared a photo with her DWTS partner Tony and his Season 17 partner, Leah Remini, writing, “Finished rehearsal 2day & kicked it wit my boo @tonydovolani & his last season partner the fabulous @leahremini love u guys 4 holding me down #dwts #vote 800-868-3401.”

NeNe and Tony will perform a romantic rumba tonight on DWTS Season 18 Week 3, which follows the theme of the Most Memorable Year in the celeb’s life. If you want to know more about what inspires NeNe, this would be the night to watch. And pretty soon, maybe tomorrow, they’ll reveal the results of the Switch Up twist, so we'll know which new pro NeNe will dance with next week. Maybe Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

What do you think of NeNe’s photo and message? Are you rooting for her to continue to do well on DWTS?
