Guess who landed the coveted position of being the token black male and female on Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars? Billie Dee Williams and Real Housewives Of Atlanta capo NeNe Leakes..
Leakes says that she plans to use her time on the show to lose the weight that she gained following her pulmonary embolism health scare…
”There will be doctors on set for me, but I feel pretty good” -NeNe Leakes/USA Today
The rest of the cast is a snooze fest so It should be interesting to see how the ratings play out throughout the season once the small amount of notable names disappear, but you can check out two-hour season premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Monday March 17th on ABC.
