NeNe Leakes Returns to Dancing with the Stars
The Season 18 contestant came back to her "old home" to support #RHOA's Kim Fields.
NeNe Leakes seems to be revisiting her past a ton this week. First, she made her triumphant return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta during Sunday's Part 3 of the Season 8 reunion. Then on Monday night, she popped up at the set of Dancing with the Stars, on which she competed and came in seventh during Season 18.
But this time, NeNe was in the building to support RHOA's Kim Fields, who is currently competing on Season 22 of the dancing competition. "Went to my old home tonight and supported my girl @kimfieldsofficial #DWTS VOTE," NeNe captioned a photo of the two backstage.
Though NeNe didn't have the nicest things to say about Kim during Part 3 of the reunion Sunday (she doesn't think the newbie is "a fit for this group of girls"), the two seemed to be all smiles at DWTS.
Perhaps that's because Kim's performance was so delightful. Dressed in the Eastland School uniform she wore as Tootie on The Facts of Life, Kim danced the foxtrot to the theme song of the classic '80s sitcom with partner Sasha Farber during Monday night's episode, pigtails and all, which you can check out in the clip, below. Unfortunately, Kim didn't perform the whole routine in roller skates, as her character liked to wear on The Facts of Life. However, Charlotte Rae, the actress who played Mrs. Garrett on the show, was in the audience cheering her on, so it was just like an episode of The Facts of Life, really.
Overall, Kim and Sasha got rave reviews from the judges, earning a 22 out of 30 points. Most importantly, they made it through another elimination of the competition with Mischa Barton getting sent home this week. Clearly, NeNe was a good luck charm for Kim.
Though there doesn't seem to be any hard feelings between NeNe and Kim, we can't say the same for Kim and Kenya Moore. Check out this confrontation between the 'Wives from the upcoming "Secrets Revealed" episode of RHOA airing Sunday, April 10 at 8/7c, below.
