NeNe shared that she's proud of herself for taking such a huge leap out of her comfort zone by joining the competition show. "I'm so totally out of my element. But after week one, I was actually proud of myself for doing something that is not of the norm for me. Some of the people who are currently on the show have previous dance experience and I don't, so I was actually proud of myself for just even getting through it."

Tonight NeNe is tackling the jive – and it's been no easy feat. "The jive is extremely difficult. The biggest challenge for me this week is really going to be my endurance because of all the hopping and moving around and it's a really quick dance. My endurance is going to play a big part in it because I am winded like hell."
NeNe wants tonight's dance to be perfect but knows that isn't possible. "Obviously I won't be able to do that, because I just don't have the background and it takes a lot more training. So we just worked really hard on technique this week. It's not so much the choreography for me, the choreography I can catch, hunnis; it's just the technical part—the hands and the feet—that I have to work on. It's a lot, it really is."
NeNe also revealed that Billy Dee Williams actually did worse during rehearsals than he did on last week's show (where he just sort of shuffled around the stage). Yikes! "You know, he's 77…I thought he did great for his age because I saw him rehearse and he wasn't as good in rehearsal as he was on show night, so I thought he did well."
Don't forget to have your dialing finger ready for her tonight. "Please tune in! I hope you enjoy the jive. I've got to really work on my endurance to be able to make it through this dance, so pray for me! Don't forget my voting number: 1-800-868-3401."
