For NeNe, making her way to the ballroom is quite exciting, but for her partner's former celebrity dancer, Wendy Williams, she's not expecting much out of NeNe, certainly not a season win.

“As I predicted, Tony Dovolani–my former partner–will be NeNe’s partner because he always gets the big ones,” Wendy said during a March 6 airing of her talk show. “Let’s see how this is going to play out. Tony has already won a Mirror Ball Trophy. He’s very, very serious about his dancing.”

According to Wendy, Tony is a very nice man, but also very, very strict when it comes to dancing. That, added with the grueling practice schedule (which consists of six-hour sessions six days a week) can be quite the toxic mix for the average person -- especially the average, not-active person.

While NeNe is a busy lady, she isn't used to dealing with such a demanding physical job, so it's sure to be a challenge for her. Luckily, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is always up for a challenge and has never been known as one to back down.

Still, Tony may not be quite what NeNe is expecting. “He’s not fun, NeNe,” she said. “I wish you well, but you all aren’t going to win!”
