Rumors of a Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member joining Dancing With the Stars are confirmed now that NeNe Leakes is officially casted for season 18 along with acting legend Billy Dee Williams, who called the casting his “last hurrah” to the world.

In a recent interview with USA Today, NeNe says that she hopes this show will help her drop the weight she gained from being sick. Struggling with a pulmonary embolism made it difficult for NeNe to keep weight off, but she’s still determined to dance. “There will be doctors on set for me,” but “I feel pretty good,” she said.
