NeNe Leakes could join “Dancing with the Stars” next season, and rumors have been spreading she is already thinking about her dance moves. On Feb. 26, Leakes’ official Twitter account hinted that she has some exciting news to share with her fans. The reality star allegedly plans to juggle both the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and the dancing show at the same time.
Leakes seems to want to follow in Lisa Vanderpump’s footsteps by appearing on “Dancing with the Stars.” The housewife has not officially confirmed the announcement, but E! Online claims several sources have shared Leakes is part of the cast for the 18th season.
“Dancing with the Stars” was once rumored to have a ban on the housewives, but Vanderpump’s appearance on the show apparently broke the ice and has allowed for the possibility of others being able to join. Leakes has already admitted she enjoys competition on her blog, so she may actually enjoy the competitive side of the dancing show. In addition, she was once an exotic dancer and spent several years working in a club.
Despite the stress the show has put on other contestants in the past, Leakes does not seem to be concerned about the impact on her health. She previously suffered from blood clots in her lungs that left her hospitalized.
