Spray tans, sequins, semi stars – it's Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes made her Dancing with the Stars debut tonight.  I (as a non-fan) have to give credit where credit is due, she can move!  Now, I didn't see NeNe do much Cha Cha Cha, but she proved she can Shake, Shake, Shake. 

As always, the stars have three weeks to rehearse their first routine. They have only seven days to learn dance number two – and it usually shows. 

NeNe told Tony Dovolani that she wants to bring personality to the ballroom. "We want to have fun, darling," she added. "I want to shake my bum bum. I've never taken a dance class before, but I've always had a lot of soul."

Tony Dovolani is ready for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, but is his partner NeNe Leakes

While Tony was fully prepared to end up in the middle of the pack for this season's eliminations, he says that after he started working with NeNe he believes they could go far. But it's going to take relying on NeNe's personality to get there!

"We know athletes have an advantage but I feel like personality takes you a long way," Tony explained. "As long as we can show NeNe’s personality in a positive way, we can have her connect with the audience at home.”

ABC has released the cast photos of Dancing with the Stars season 18.  

Above is a glimpse of Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, in a lacy dancing costume, with her pro partner Tony Dovolani. Melissa Gorga thinks NeNe will "rock that dance floor like a true diva should!"  Do you agree? 

This season, pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is back, host Brooke Burke is out, and host Erin Andrews is in. The new season kicks off Monday, March 17th!

Below are photos of the remaining season 18 starsAmy Purdy, Billy Dee Williams, Candace Cameron Bure, Charlie White, Cody Simpson, Danica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Drew Carey, James Maslow, Meryl Davis, & Sean Avery – with their pro partners.

TOM BERGERON, ERIN ANDREWS

I admit that I am not a sports fan and I don't know much about Erin Andrews, but I was hoping she would be a step up from Brooke Burke as co-host on Dancing with the Stars.  The more I read, however, the more I think this will not be the case. Not even close.

First I read that Erin's worried about living up to Brooke's legacy. Huh? She's striving for vapid nonsensical chatter?  Okay, then.  Next I see that she's girl crushing season 18 competitor NeNe Leakes. I'm not really a fan of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, so this pains me to read.

ABC revealed the season 18 cast of Dancing with the Stars yesterday. The cast consists mostly of athletes, pop stars, and uber popular 90s sitcom stars. Then there's NeNe Leakes. Then there's a real [movie] star. Bloop.

New this season are Erin Andrews,  who has replaced Brook Burke as Tom Bergeron's co-host, and the Switch Up twist. For the first time ever, the stars will dance with new pro partners – chosen by America's votes - at some point in the season. 

Personally, I'm not excited about either addition, Erin or the twist that reeks of desperation, but oh well.  Also - no Tristan MacManus. :( Someone at ABC hates me. Anyway, check out the cast photos and bios below, as well as a few candid shots of NeNe and Tony

30th Annual PaleyFest - 'The New Normal'

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is strapping on her Louboutins and doing a little ballroom dancing, y'all!   Dancing with the Stars just released the names of season 18's contestants and NeNe's name is on the list! 

NeNe is paired up and ready to get her own twirl on with pro dancer Tony Dovolani. If you'll recall, poor Tony was stuck with Kate Gosselin during her spin around the ballroom back in season 10.

Melissa will be bringing you the full cast lineup, including who their pro partners are later today – with photos and more details on what to expect this season!

So there are whisperings that Brooke Burke-Charvet's sudden departure from Dancing With the Stars in favor of sportscaster Erin Andrews is due to ABC's desire to draw more male viewers to the competition show. Um, is Erin planning on being naked for the duration of the upcoming season? I really don't think there is another way to get young guys to watch a ballroom dancing competition that should have tapped its way off our small screens a while ago…and I still watch religiously!

Brooke, who co-hosted with Tom Bergeron for seven seasons, is reportedly "in shock" from being fired, but she's handling it like the classy champ she is. Bad move, DWTS. Bad move…although I do love some Erin

30th Annual PaleyFest - 'The New Normal'

Dancing With The Stars is desperately trying to shake things up! After Lisa Vanderpump popped the no Housewives in the ballroom cherry last season, apparently they're considering hiring another one of Bravo's ladies!

NeNe Leakes is among the front-runners rumored to be appearing on the upcoming season. With her acting career stagnating and her Housewives career obviously too lowly for her, what else has she got going on? 

The cast list is being kept secret until March 4, but sources tell E! News that NeNe, along with former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure, have already been cast for the 18th season, which will premiere March 17th.
