NeNe Leakes literally kicked off season 18 of “Dancing With the Stars” last night, and got the crowd hyped with her energized cha cha cha.

“The Real Housewife of Atlanta” and “Glee” star sported a glitzy headband and white fringe to cut a rug with her partner Tony Dovolani, and gave the show a huge dose of the personality that has made her a reality show standout.

“I’ve never taken a dance class before, but I’ve got a lot of soul,” she claimed.

The judges gave her a 21 out of 30. Carrie Ann Inaba wanted her performance to fit her “incredibly larger-than-life personality:” “I felt you were dancing a little small to match Tony,” she said.

  1. Nene performance was okay. Nothing unique or complicated she basically was just dancing. Anybody else could’ve done what she did…probably better.

  2. KUDOS to Billy Dee !!! The Brother is almost 80yrs old folks and I’d say that’s pretty awesome. Especially having had hip surgery & other health issues of late. He could be in a rest home somewhere, yet has the energy for one last hurrah. God bless this living film legend. Let’s enjoy him while we still have him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
