NeNe Leakes may be in the midst of beefing with her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars, but it appears the self-proclaimed “rich b*tch” will be cashing another big check soon.

And here’s the full list of other celebs who will be competing next season:

Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
NeNe Leakes & Tony Dovolani
Sean Avery & Karina Smirnoff
Amy Purdy & Derek Hough



Congrats to NeNe.


  1. See. This is what Kenya should have been trying to do. Instead of focusing on making NeNe quit the show (which she won’t), she should be trying to get some more checks outside of RHOA. NeNe has that covered.

  2. And she has even more things lined up too. She just got finished kicking it with Naomi Campbell.. LOL my girl keeps winning while Kenya and Marlo seethe. There’s much bigger checks to cash than the Bravo ones ladies. Get with the program.

  3. Well she doesn’t play about her money and stretching out her 15 minutes. I can’t even hate on that.

  4. She’s going to be on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow night too. Someone should call Kenya and make sure she’s ok. lol
