Thanks to the Switch Up – NeNe Leakes wants to school pro Tony Dovolani on how Dancing with the Stars works. She insists it is all about her character. Tony says, "You have to understand that you're going from a dance that has no rules (jazz) to a dance that has a lot of rules (foxtrot)." NeNe responds, "Me becoming a character is a strong point of mine – Derek Hough had the ability to do that because of the dance." Tony adds, "Yeah, a dance with no rules."
NeNe obnoxiously carries on when Tony gives her direction. Tony jokes, "Such a good student – don't listen to anything I say." NeNe huffs, "Listen Tony, don't act like I'm not a good student. I'm <finger snap> an excellent student. Okay?!"
Tony encourages NeNe to try the move one more time, and she snaps, "I don't feel like it anymore. Goodbye. You're gonna have to come with a better attitude tomorrow. I am dead a$$ serious right now because you have a damn attitude today and that sh-t ain't gonna work. If you want to go back to Candace Bure, you should call production so you can go back to Candace so you can be happy. I've only give you the best that I got every day I've ever come here and danced with you. I don't deserve an attitude. Here's your mic, think about it."
NeNe exits stage left. Too bad not for good.

Len Goodman spews, "You two are a match made in Heaven. It was feisty. It was fun. I loved it. For me, your best dance."
Bruno Tonioli calls NeNe a mean and nasty girl – but not in the same context I call her mean and nasty. "You put the bump and grind into the Foxtrot."
Carrie Ann Inaba compliments Tony's choreography, but then she proceeds to say the Switch Up is the best thing to ever happen to NeNe. Tony disagrees. Carrie Ann argues. Tony grits his teeth and smiles.
Donny Osmond vomits, "This is called Dancing with the Stars but they should call it Dancing with NeNe." NeNe gushes, "OMG! Thank you!"
So clearly praise in written into NeNe's contract. Because, what?!?

NeNe's fighting back tears and refusing to speak to Erin Andrews.

Worst quote of the night: Dancing with Nene #EyeRoll
Best quote of the night: Val snarks, "I think Maks has rubbed off a little bit on Danica – she's turned into a self-centered, egotistical, completely irrational, and emotional bitch." As a huge fan of Val and Maks, and their relationship, I enjoyed this so much. Danica is my personal favorite star this season. 🙂
