Her partner, Tony Dovolani,told said that before the show started he thought going in that NeNe would end up in the middle of the pack on “Dancing With the Stars.” He thought she could actually make it to the finals after he rehearsed with her… At least until he saw her competitors. After the show she said, “I’m so proud of myself. I hope that I have inspired women all over the world. This has been an amazing, positive experience for me. I want to just thank my husband and my children who are here supporting me every single week after week. All of my family, all of my friends, all of my fans. And I thank all of you judges who judged me every week. I am so proud of myself to stand here and compete with Olympians with no dancing experience at all. I am proud of NeNe Leakes!” Awww!!! Kudos to Ne Ne. Wonder whats next for her? She’s already wrapped up this season for Atlanta Housewives and there have been talk of a clothing line but no official word.

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Getting Married This Week? Attention Attention Attention!!!! Kim and Kanye may be geting married this week. Supposedly they are on the hush hush about it and want it to be a private matter. They got confidential married license so no one will know exactly when. Based on news from people close to them, it’ll be more of a courthouse wedding and big show/part afterwards. There have been old reports on the couple getting married in Paris sometime in May. Of course because of taping and the TV drama, Kanye’s “big brother”, Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce will not be in attendance. Maybe they’ll join them now since its supposedly private now. There wouldn be a surprise to the people if Kim and Kanye does two weddings. Weeks ago they stirred up fuss because they were granted the fron cover of Vogue Magazine. Some people were mad while others were happy. Either way it goes, Kim and Kanye know how to start a mess of noise.Kanye Shrug!!!! Ok “KK” lets see what yall will do. [HipHopWired]
