Every Thursday, celebrate #TBT with us as we open the vault to share photos and videos of Bravolebrities before they were famous--or revisit memorable moments from our shows. This week, we’re throwing it back to NeNe Leakes cutting some serious rug on DWTS.
It’s often said that you should dance like there’s nobody watching. Well, that was certainly not the case when NeNe hit the floor on Season 18 of the reality competition sensation, Dancing With the Stars. Along with her professional partner, Tony Dovolani, NeNe charmed audiences with eccentric, high-energy performances. Take, for instance, that time NeNe and Tony did a Salsa rendition to Nelly’s “Hot in Herre.”
We love how she managed to sneak in a smooch with her hubby, Gregg. And, NeNe obviously brought it when she did the Argentine Tango.
While Jazz dancing with Derek Hough, NeNe paid some serious homage to Beyoncé.
After being eliminated and finishing in seventh place, NeNe delivered a rousing, inspirational goodbye. “I'm so proud of myself, and I hope that I inspire women all over the world. This has been an amazing, positive experience for me. I am so proud of myself to stand her and compete with Olympians with no dance experience at all. I am proud of NeNe Leakes.”
