Could one of the celebrities to be featured on season 19 of "Dancing with the Stars" be Atlanta housewife Kenya Moore? Yes, if she gets her way. In an interview with RumorFix, posted on Tuesday, May 27, the controversial star of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" admitted that she would love the chance to dance in the ballroom.

When asked if it was great to watch her co-star NeNe Leakes dance with Tony Dovolani in pursuit of the trophy, Kenya said that she didn't watch her at all. At least Kenya's response this time around was more cordial than what she has said in the past. In late March, Kenya said that she would only watch NeNe on the dance competition if she wants to fall asleep. NeNe herself said that Kenya was not supportive of her gig, having failed to congratulate her on nabbing the big opportunity like some of the other housewives.

Kenya was then asked if she would join the dance competition herself. She gave an affirmative yes. “I’m a great dancer. I’d love to be on that show!” she said. She added that she's known for her twirls. Viewers of "Real Housewives" have seen her do a lot of twirling on the show, especially when leaving the other housewives after an argument. Her fan base is even named "Team Twirl" after her love of twirling.

If Kenya Moore, who recently completed filming "Celebrity Apprentice," does star on "Dancing with the Stars," she'll be following in Lisa Vanderpump's and NeNe Leakes' footsteps. Lisa, cast in season 16, partnered with Gleb Savchenko. She was sent home early on, during week four of the competition. NeNe was able to do much better. She and Tony reached the seventh week of competition before being sent home.

Considering NeNe's strong dislike of Kenya, it's likely that, if Kenya does indeed join the dancing competition, she won't be watching her either. Perhaps NeNe will even come out with an insult even bigger than Kenya's "I'll watch NeNe dance to sleep" insult!
