ABC hit series Dancing With the Stars  has released this season’s first round of promotional pics and RHOA star Nene Leakes looks absolutely amazing.

The Glee  actress is pictured next to her dance partner Tony Dovolani wearing a form fitting black dress with her arms extended like she has already won the competition.

EXTRA  caught up with Leakes during an Atlanta rehearsal with her partner to find out how she was handling the pressure of next week’s first show.  “For me, they’ve [the rehearsals] been really, really good and rewarding, and tiring, and just all of the above, but rewarding.”

Leakes goes on to say despite the hard work, she is a “go-getter” and a “hustler” and is willing to put in the work to reach her goal.  “I have work ethic and I think there are a lot of people who don’t really know that, and I am competitive, so let’s go.”

Leakes will compete against a number of other guest stars including Billy Dee Williams and Drew Carey.
