‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 30 Cast Is Finally Taking Shape as Kenya Moore Joins
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is the recent cast for the upcoming season 30 of Dancing With The Stars. TMZ reported on August 30, 2021, that the reality star is joining the show.
Moore has been a housewife for the past ten seasons of RHOA. So without question, it will be more than interesting to see how the 50-year-old will perform in the dance competition.
The former Miss USA champion follows in the previous housewives' footsteps, including NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Erika Jayne, Lisa Vanderpump, and Lisa Rinna.
Kenya Moore Joins JoJo Siwa and Suni Lee
Besides Moore, other celebrities to grace the competition this season are former Dance Moms alum JoJo Siwa and the gold medalist of the Tokyo Olympics, Suni Lee.
Lee took to Twitter to announce she was taking part in season 30 on August 26, 2021. "I'm so excited. See you all on the dance floor!" the 18-year-old gymnast said in the video.
Just after the announcement, Lee also gushed about the endeavor during an interview for Good Morning America.
When asked how she would use her gymnastic background in the ballroom, the young star stated she would try her best, have fun, and let loose.
Lee also shared she would juggle her studies at Auburn University and the rigorous dance training and hopes to make the best out of the activity.
Interestingly, Siwa also gave an interview during the same session. A member of the LGBTQ community, Siwa will be the first woman ever to team up with a woman.
She dished on her history-making opportunity and recounted how she had no doubts when the DWTS production team asked her if she would partner with a man or a woman.
Siwa expressed she was thrilled to normalize ballroom dances for people of unique orientation all over the world. She added,
It is normal for a ballroom for a girl to dance with a guy. But I don't do anything normal.
The 18-year-old reiterated that the opportunity to participate in the competition was helping her distribute her motto — love who you want to love.
