The fierce star of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ is a force of nature, and apparently not just in real life, but on the dance floor too. During season 18 of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ Leakes partnered with Tony Dovolani and did a fantastic job up until week 7.
The dancers never reached the finals, and during the Latin Night competition, Nene Leakes was eliminated and finished in 7th place. Not bad, but still not the best.
Andy Dick – Season 16
In what feels like a comedy sketch in and of itself, famous comedian Andy Dick joined the 'Dancing With the Stars' competition back in 2013. Paired up with Sharna Burgess, Dick gave it his best and danced away in Waltz, Foxtrot, Rumba, Salsa, and many more categories.
Unfortunately, as most of us expected, Dick wasn’t a very good dancer, and he got mediocre scores from the judges. But hey, just watching this man do the Cha-Cha-Cha was worth it enough.
Bill Nye – Season 17
Who said scientists didn’t know how to have fun? In 2014, one of America’s most beloved scientists, Bill Nye, went on to compete in season 17 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' Viewers were thrilled since they hadn’t seen Nye on their screens since the 90s, and the fact that he was paired up with the gorgeous Tyne Stecklein didn’t hurt either.
Everything was looking well until Nye suffered an injury early in the show. Sadly, the pair were disqualified in the season’s third week. Gone so soon, Bill!
Leah Remini – Season 17
After nine seasons of playing Kevin James’s wife in the popular sitcom 'The King of Queens,' Leah Remini decided to become a dancing queen. She joined 'Dancing With the Stars' for season 17 alongside dance partner Tony Dovolani.
Surprisingly enough, she made it to the semifinals! Leah won fifth place, and we were all very proud of her. She proved that there was more to her than acting. She had legs that she could move fantastically.
Rumer Willis – Season 20
Apart from some small roles here and there, Rumer Willis was mostly known for being the beautiful daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Until she stole the show in 'Dancing With the Stars,' that is.
During the show’s 20th season, in 2015, Rumer partnered with talented dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy. Not only did they receive perfect scores for almost all their routines, but they also won first place that season!
