Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes tackled the fast-paced jive Monday night to lackluster scores on the second episode of ABC’s ballroom reality competition “Dancing With The Stars.”
She earned a total score of 21 points out of 30, and was in the bottom three celebrity pairings, putting her dangerously close to elimination. If you want to keep the Atlanta Housewife in the show, you need to vote online before 8 tonight.
Online voting at www.ABC.com and on Facebook at https://apps.facebook.com/votedwts/ is open for 24 hours, beginning from the start of each episode on the East Coast at 8 p.m., ET. That gives Georgians until 8 tonight to do their part to keep Leakes dancing for another week.
Top scorers Monday were Olympic gold medal ice skaters Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who both earned scores of 25, as did singer James Maslow. Paralympic snowboard Amy Purdy was right behind with a score of 24.
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta” series star took to the ballroom floor with professional partner Tony Dovolani. Their jive earned criticism from the judges about Leakes’ arm movements and footwork.
NeNe's Facebook fans have rallied to cheer her on.
Roxanne from "Survivor" posted: "They got you sweating losing some easy weight on this show. You go girl! Dancing is no joke. Keep having courage!"
Barbara Cherry wrote, "I'm watching because you're on. Keep up the great work."
Gwen Mur-Jack said, "NeNe continue stay out of your OWN way, U were Amazing!"
