NeNe Leakes took to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday to dish on her new gig on “Dancing With The Stars.” As previously reported she’s been added to the season 18 cast alongside stars like Billy Dee Williams, Drew Carey and James Maslow.

The housewife revealed to Kimmel that she’s going to pull from her past as a stripper to help her with the competition. She also dissed the rumored favorites Olympic ice dancing gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis.

“In my twenties I was an exotic dancer… I’m going to bring it,” said Leakes.

“My strategy is to bring a lot of soul and a lot of personality, which I don’t think a lot of those Olympic athlete people have.”

She then went on to size up her competitors one by one as Kimmel held up pictures of each cast member.

“I think he’s gonna do okay, he’s gonna win a lot of ladies’ votes,” said Leakes about competitor Billy Dee Williams.

“She swam and she ended in Florida,”said Leakes about competitor Diana Nyad who’s a world record holding long-distance swimmer. “I think she’s a great competitor and I think all these people who are athletes have the endurance so it’s really not fair.”
