The Real Housewives was the first to perform on the show this season and for someone like NeNe, she did really well. I was very impressed.
When I say “someone like NeNe,” I mean someone who you don’t expect to see dancing as well as she did last night.
We only know her as the loud-mouthed woman that reeeaaaaaaads people when she’s not happy with them.
And despite her ongoing drama with Kenya Moore among other cast members on the Housewives franchise, NeNe put all the tension aside to purely focus on her performance and she did a good job considering it’s only week 1.
The 46-year old was praised by Len Goodman who started off by saying: “That’s the way to get the party started… well done,” before insisting that she needs to loosen up a little bit in future performances, but other than that it was great.
Bruno Tonioli agreed with the great dance, admitting that he also sees NeNe go far in the competition seeing that she really did prove to people that she really can dance. “I love your energy, I love your enthusiasm,” he said.
NeNe and her partner were awarded 21 points for the performance — not too bad. Make sure you catch the video below and tell us your thoughts!
Sidenote: I was a little distracted by her ever-so-white veneers! They’re just… wow!
