One person who wants to see Kim Zolciak go far on Dancing with the Stars is her former The Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star NeNe Leakes. NeNe, who was in the audience for Monday night’s show, posted a photo of herself with Kim and her pro dance partner Tony Dovolani after their dance.

NeNe wrote that she and Kim “are the original queens,” a reference to the fact that they are two of the original stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe said that she would never wish Kim and Tony nothing but the best and told her fans to vote for Kim and Tony.

In an interview with E! News after her second performance on the dance competition, Kim jokingly called NeNe “evil” for not warning her about how hard the show is. NeNe herself danced with Tony on the show’s 18th season.

Kim and Tony received a 19 out of 30 score for their second dance, a big improvement from their 12 out of 30 score last week, which was actually the lowest score that night.

Besides NeNe, Kim has also received support from at least two other housewives. Lisa Rinna, from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, applauded Kim’s improved performance.

Melissa Gorga, from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, wished Kim luck from the outset.

Yet while NeNe Leakes wants Kim Zolciak to do well, she may actually want another contestant to take home the trophy. Prior to her post regarding Kim, NeNe posted a supportive message for contestant Tamar Braxton. NeNe called Tamar, who is competing with season 20 champion Val Chmerkovskiy, “family” and noted that she, her husband Gregg Leakes, her son, and Tamar’s sister Toni Braxton all sat together in the front row to watch Tamar dance.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, NeNe, who is currently a guest host on E!’s Fashion Police, raised some suspicion last week that she wasn’t supportive of Kim’s Dancing with the Stars appearance. The night the show premiered, NeNe expressed frustration that she couldn’t watch Tamar Braxton’s performance and described Tamar as her “sister.” She made no mention of Kim. Some of NeNe’s Twitter followers told her to show Kim some support.

Perhaps after the current seasons of Dancing with the Stars and Fashion Police ends, Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes will finally find the time to film their spin-off. In March, Bravo announced that the two will star on a spin-off titled NeNe and Kim: Road to Riches, which will show them traveling across the country together. Months later, in July, it was widely reported that Bravo had canceled the show due to scheduling difficulties. Neither Kim nor NeNe have spoken out about the reported cancellation.
