NeNe Leakes: Real Housewives Drama Made Dancing with the Stars Tough

Posted by on April 30, 2014 at 5:32 AM EST


It’s known for being one of the more physically demanding reality TV shows, and many of the celebs who take part in Dancing with the Stars wind up with injuries. Then there’s the added pressure, of course, of performing in front of a TV audience of millions.

So how much more stressful is all of that going to be when you also face, at the same time, handling the fallout of a crazy Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion? Not to mention the lingering worry of last year’s blood clot scare.

That’s the situation NeNe Leakes faced. And, to be fair, the girl put up a good old fight this week on Dancing with the Stars, but, ultimately, she just wasn’t able to compete with people like Danica Mckellar.

After her elimination, Leakes told an interviewer:

“It was hard because I had to fly back to Atlanta to do the reunion while also keeping up the dancing.”

However, plucky NeNe clearly has no regrets – and took to Twitter to express her gratitude, exclaiming: “Thanks for the love and support! I’m so proud of myself! I danced against Olympians!”
