Huge news for NeNe Leakes this week! In case you missed it, the Real Housewives of Atlanta diva will be joining the cast for Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars, where she has been paired up with Albanian ballroom pro, Tony Dovolani. NeNe couldn't be more excited about the upcoming gig and she's received a ton of support from fellow Bravolebrities and celebs.
NeNe took to Twitter to share how thrilled she is about her involvement, writing, "OMG OMG! I'm doing Dancing With The Stars! Gonna rep ATL hard babe! Love my partner @tonydovolani.”
Her RHoA co-star, Porsha Williams, took a moment to call NeNe to congratulate her, which NeNe then gave her props for.
"Thanks @Porsha4real for the big congrats call... imma do everything u said #youabadfriend LOL," NeNe wrote, referring to her claim that Porsha wasn't a good friend during Season 6 of RHoA.
Porsha responded, "@NeNeLeakes that's what bad friends are for ... You winning! We will be watching."
Even Kenya Moore threw NeNe some attention by re-posting BravoTV's tweet that read, "You guys! #RHOA's @NeNeLeakes is joining #DWTS! Do you think she'll twirl like @KenyaMoore?," to which Kenya added, "LMAO."
Meanwhile, Mynique Smith, who was featured on this season, wrote, "YEY ... I'm so proud/excited 4 U it's official "Dancing w/The Stars" bring Hm the mirror ball!! What an awesome next step!," Andy Cohen tweeted, "Sooo excited for @NeNeLeakes & @imseanavery on #DWTS!," Bethenny Frankel said, "@NeneLeakes I've seen some of your moves and you're going to do great! Congrats on #DWTS. XO," and Teresa Giudice of RHONJ fame wrote, "Congrats @NeNeLeakes on DWTS! Can't wait to watch you. Xx."
NeNe also received some advice from past DWTS contestants.
Snooki went on Twitter to share her excitement, writing, "Gah, it's just perfect!! @NeNeLeakes is officially on the season 18 cast of #DWTS! But GIRL, brace yourself…," while Lisa Vanderpump wrote a letter to NeNe.
Lisa shared the upsides — "legitimately being unfaithful with one of the cutest guys on the planet" — and the downsides — "You're sore in places you didn't know you had!" — but overall called it "the most fantastic experience of a lifetime."
We can't wait to see NeNe in action!
