NeNe Leakes is tooting her own horn! As reported by OK! Magazine on Friday, March 28, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star is headlining Cirque du Soleil's "Zumanity" later this summer and she's not afraid of letting everyone know what an accomplishment that is.

NeNe will be out in Las Vegas for the gig in the later part of June through July.

"They’ve never had a celebrity and this is their 10th anniversary and they asked that I headline the show. Now out of all of these dancers they asked NeNe Leakes to headline their show," she told reporters while backstage at "Dancing with the Stars."

Just to make sure that everyone understood how special her gig is, NeNe reiterated that she was chosen out of everyone else.

“Not to toot my own horn but out of all of these dancers they asked NeNe Leakes to headline their show. Toot toot! They invited us out to see the show, my husband and I...Instantly when I saw it I said, ‘Oh, I’m doing this show,’” she added.

Certainly no one can say that the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star is afraid of celebrating her successes!

NeNe's not even letting the recent revelation of her criminal past and mugshots get her down. A day after Daily Mail's article about her criminal past was published, she retweeted a fan's tweet that nothing can hold her down.

"So glad @NeNeLeakes life is an open book so the more dirt they dig up the Higher she soar like an eagle!" the fan wrote.

How do you think NeNe Leakes will do on both "DWTS" and the Cirque show?
