Leakes completed her 6th week on the ballroom dancing show last night following last week’s foxtrot (click HERE if you missed that) where in the behind-the-scenes video, NeNe walked out on Tony because of his “attitude.”
This week’s intro package began with Nene sobbing in Tony’s arms following their Disney night routine, and him bringing her flowers to their first rehearsal.
“Tony and I have been through so much,” she said.
“This week is definitely a chance for us to be a stronger unit.”

Leakes was in the bottom of the celebrity lineup and in danger of going home this week as “Dancing With The Stars” sheds more contestants but it seems the drama between she and her partner, Tony Dovolani has made them closer and more determined.
All four judges praised the fun factor of the couple’s salsa, which was performed to Nelly’s “Hot in Herre.”
Tonight’s salsa was more relaxed, and footage showed that practice was much more harmonious than the previous week. “It feels great for Tony and I to have reconciled, to have moved on,” Leakes said at rehearsal.

Nene hit the ballroom Monday in a yellow fringe dress, and smooched her hubby Gregg along the way down to the dance floor!
“We had a little tiff, but Tony and I are very much in love,” she told co-host Erin Andrews with a smile after tonight’s salsa to Nelly’s “It’s Gettin’ Hot in Here.”
The steamy performance earned Leakes a 9 from guest judge Redfoo (from the rap group LMFAO), while each of the regular judges gave her an 8, for a total of 33 points out of 40.
