I know I pissed a lot of you off when one of my first posts about Nene Leakes being on Dancing With The Stars was entitled, “How Long Until Nene Quits Dancing With The Stars?” It’s clear to me that when Nene went on Celebrity Apprentice, she thought she could win, but when it was clear that would not happen, and sticking it out would be hard, she quit.
This week on DWTS, Nene is on the bottom of the judges’ score board. There is also a partner swap which means she will likely not be dancing with her beloved Tony. This is a do or die week for Nene. It’s the week to go all out. So here are my observations of Nene this week.
Last Monday after the show, Nene and Gregg went to Mr. Chow to get in front of some cameras and have some drinks. Humble Nene that we had been seeing on DWTS was gone and drunk, angry Nene was filmed by TMZ spewing nonsense about Kenya Moore and Wendy Williams.
Tuesday was the last real mention of DWTS except for one picture of her and Tony on from Monday’s show Wednesday morning. Nary a tweet about what dance she will do tomorrow night. Not one story or picture on her website about how hard she is working on her dance. I get that she probably could not post pictures of her new partner, because that is a surprise. But it’s not like Nene not to talk about how hard she is working.
But she is talking about how hard she is working. She told us about her Zumanity gig next summer. She told us several times that she would be in Houston at a seminar on Saturday. She filmed the Ellen DeGeneres show this past week for a show that will air on Monday. Normally, the DWTS cast doesn’t do a show like Ellen until they are voted off. That said the show is airing before Monday’s DWTS so she really can’t say much. She is also tweeting that she will be “hosting her gays” in West Hollywood tonight. She doesn’t give us any information on where that will be or what time exactly that will occur. Who has time for that the night before a live show?
The last update on her website is another one of her quotes for her haters that essentially says she is making money and anyone who doesn’t like her has issues.
How is she doing all of these things and still rehearsing 6 hours a day? Why is there no mention of her dance for this week on twitter? The chances were good that she would go home this week anyway. Do you think she decided to do other things this week? Will there be some dramatic announcement about her health on Monday before she gets voted off? Or will she show up prepared to dance?
