Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes co-hosted CBS’s “The Talk” earlier this week and she announced to the ladies that she is dating Gregg officially! NeNe went through their journey and explained why her and Gregg’s marriage dissolved after she stepped out of the “housewife” role and into the TV Housewife role.
NeNe tells the women of how her marriage ended up in divorce, “Gregg and I had been married for 15 years and we had issues. As you guys know, I’m on a reality show, and a lot of the time what happens on these reality shows is that these women are married to successful men, and you’re in their shadow, and once you step out of your own shadow and away from their’s, it can start a little conflict. I am not sure if Gregg was ready to see me as his wife out in the forefront, making my own money, doing my own thing. That was very difficult for him and I felt like Gregg wasn’t doing all there things that he should be doing as a husband, and I decided to divorce Gregg.”
NeNe says of their reconciliation, “He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there. There were other issues going on that were deeper than that. When you are married, there is a certain amount of respect that I desire! Because I am so vocal, I felt like I was accused of doing something wrong in our relationship… and actually it wasn’t me, to be honest, Gregg did something I did not approve of. Yes, we legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together.”
So it’s nice to hear that they are back on because NeNe had been pretty ambiguous about what was going on before this. It’s clear that the two love each other so I am happy for NeNe.
Are you glad the two are back together? Do you think they will head back to the altar soon?
