Tony Dovolani has gotten to know partner NeNe Leakes quite well over the last few weeks during Dancing with the Stars rehearsals – and one thing he's learned quickly: she isn't one to tone down the energy.
"God forbid I'm having one of those tough days, she'll start dancing with me and rubbing on me. I immediate have a smile on my face," Dovolani, 40, told PEOPLE backstage right after Monday night's show, where he and the TV personality were declared safe to move on to next week's competition. "We hit it off right off the bat."
Expressing his gratitude to fans for voting them on for another week, Dovolani said it will give the dancing duo "the opportunity to show off NeNe's real side," adding, "Everybody's got this perception of NeNe. I've grown to really respect her and adore her. I think she's actually a big teddy bear. She treats me like gold. We really have a good time."

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my Friends!
Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux stepped out for a cozy dinner with Courteney Cox at the Sunset Tower Hotel's Tower Bar on Monday.
"Jennifer looked adorable!" an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked so pulled together and very chic. She was dressed casually, but in heels."
Aniston recently returned to L.A. during a break from filming We're the Millers in North Carolina with Jason Sudeikis.
"They were very calm and carrying on a regular dinner conversation," the source adds. "Jennifer had a big smile on her face. She and Justin both looked very happy."
It was the first time Aniston and Theroux have been seen out together since their Aug. 12 engagement.
The Sunset Tower holds fond memories for the couple. It's where Aniston and Theroux were first spotted out together publicly when they shared a three-hour casual dinner back in May 2011.
After dinner, the trio greeted designer Tom Ford, seated at a nearby table with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson – who double dated with Aniston and Theroux last April – and several others. Ford was celebrating his 51st birthday.
