Are any of you still watching “Dancing With the Stars?” Well, if you are, you may want to know that the full cast of season 18 was revealed Tuesday morning (March 4, 2014) on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Although we previously revealed that Atlanta housewife, Nene Leakes and former Full House child actress Candace Cameron Bure would be among the cast (See HERE), we were surprised at some of the contestants who were revealed.
Check out the full list below:
Is Nene Leakes, 43, joining the “Dancing With the Stars” season 18 cast? That’s so according to some recent reports.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star and actress may need some much needed time away from all the drama and her fellow housewives to put on her dancing shoes.
Real Housewife of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes may have wanted to get all the couples together for some ‘Pillow Talk’, but let’s face it — there is always more than just ‘talking’ on reality shows! On the most recent episode of RHOA, Leakes hosted a pajama party (She says, “It’s almost like a free couple’s counseling…in pajamas.”) to help her guests move past any problems they have had with each other. C’mon, unless there is a miracle, that is not happening!
Nene grilled her guests and cast mates about their marriages by asking awkward questions she’d written on cards beforehand. Initially the couples seemed to have been having a good time, of course, that didn’t last long. NeNe mentioned Kenya’s comments about Natalie and Christopher’s marriage (not being legitimate) and that in itself threw the entire game off. What we saw, was Christopher then approaching Kenya, who attempted to leave the room, him grabbing her, and her friend Brandon intervening. Peter (Cynthia’s husband) then approaches to break the fight up before it began, he’s then shoved by Brandon and Apollo (Phaedra Park’s husband) intervenes, only this time, the altercation was a full on brawl between the three men.
On Monday, NeNe took her blog to dissect the fight and what really took place and that she does not approve of violence and mainly views Kenya as the reason why the fight broke out. Here’s what she had to say….
The newly engaged NeNe and Gregg Leakes have been making their rounds on daytime television revealing they are in fact engaged and how they were able to find love again. By the way, Gregg’s been looking pretty savvy and gentlemenly. We like…
Ohhhh…and we’re loving NeNe’s shoes! We’ll have to discover where she got them.
Don’t they look happy? Congrats again NeNe and Gregg.
NeNe Leakes visited the ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ Thursday night and confirmed what we all already knew, she accepted ex-husband Gregg Leakes proposal on New Year’s Eve.
She explains, “I was asked this beautiful question shortly after midnight. ‘Will you marry me –again?! Here answer? YES!!!
Watch the video below as NeNe explains Gregg’s proposal and more.
“HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE LEAKES”
It looks like NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes will be getting remarried after he proposed to her on New Years.
It’s no secret Gregg has been working overtime to win his wife back. Although Nene never actually spoke the words, “Gregg cheated,” she has insinuated that’s just about what happened in several interviews. And, it ultimately led to their 2011 divorce.
Well, Gregg’s begging, pleading and romancing worked! On New Year’s Day NeNe tweeted, “My answer was…Yes”.
She also released several photos of her and Gregg’s romantic night. Check them out below.
Following the latest episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’, Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss are at odds again. Their feud began a few seasons back when the two women got into a verbal altercation when NeNe learned she would not be included in recording a single with Kim Zolciak. Although they’ve tried to be cordial towards each other it’s clear their friendship is totally genuine. On the recent episode Kandi tells Cynthia Bailey she believes NeNe befriend people can gain something from. Once NeNe say the episode she took to her Bravo TV Blog to give Kandi a piece of her mind. Here’s what she had to say.
I’m choosing to be silent about most of this episode, because there’s a few things about NeNe that you might already know, but I’ll tell you anyway. I’m very loyal to those that are loyal to me, I will keep it real with you because there’s no reason to lie, I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I can honestly tell you that I wake up every morning with my heart in the right place and that is why I always land on my feet!
NeNe Leakes may have just revealed just what broke up her marriage. In her interview with Ebony magazine she dishes on the breakup, why she filed for divorce and dating her now ex-husband.
Nene tells Ebony Magazine–“It hurt me to file for divorce, but I had to see it through. I let him know you’re going to be my husband and you’re not going to be somebody else’s anything, but if you plan to be somebody else’s anything, then we can’t be together.”

Following Monday night’s airing of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ we know one thing, this season’s going to be explosive for sure. There’s already some drama brewing between Cynthia Bailey and new cast mate Kenya Moore, aka the looney tune.
If you watched the very first episode, you’ll know, Kenya was pretty rude to models who were auditioning at the Bailey Agency for an opportunity to do a spread for Essence magazine. Cynthia invited Kenya, a fellow model, and was surprised by her candidness. After watching the others commentary the ladies took to their Bravo Blog to vent on the matter.
NeNe Leakes has certainly been a busy woman. She’s perhaps the most controversial cast mate of VH1′s ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ but, you can’t deny, she’s played it smart.
Ms. Linnethia (her birth name) has partnered with Shoe Dazzle. The online shoe boutique in which Kim Kardashian has long been a spokesperson for. Over the weekend NeNe debuted the shoe line with a signature piece called “The Nethia”, at a launch party held at the Kai Lin Art Gallery in Atlanta.
She recently tweeted, “I love this “Nethia” shoe! I’am very proud of it & created it myself 4 a great charity.”
Here they are.
And how much would they cost you? Just $39.99! The standard price for all Shoe Dazzle shoes. Do we like?
But that’s not all. NeNe is also a new grandmother.
If you watched the final reunion show of Bravo’s‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’, you may have gotten a better understanding of why Sheree Whitfield may have decided to quit the show.
In the heated third and final reunion special, NeNe Leakes dropped a bomb when she revealed it was she who encouraged the producers to invite Sheree on the show. She went on to elaborate and stated that the producers felt Sheree was a tad bit boring but she insisted to let her join the cast and so they did.
In her reason for leaving the cast, Whitfield insisted she wasn’t fired but got tired of the cattiness among the women. That may very well be true, but learning your one time friend turned nemesis is the reason you were asked to join the cast in the first place certainly would hurt your pride.
Take a look at what went down. _______READMORE
