Nene and Gregg Leakes publically split, but quickly rekindled their relationship back in 2013. The couple even got a Bravo special based around their extravagant second wedding; I Dream of Nene. On camera the two seem to have a great relationship, leaving viewers wondering what really happened to drive a wedge between the couple years ago.
Gregg’s son from a previous relationship Damian Leakes has been VERY chatty with Radaronline lately, and in his latest interview he dishes on how the couple is really doing, 3 years into their second marriage.
“They’re more in tune than a 20-year-old couple,” Damian shared. He added that they are so smitten that sometimes he finds their intense PDA “offensive.”
Damian also implied that Gregg’s wandering eye led the couple to originally split years ago. While it had been implied, cheating wasn’t something Nene spoke in depth about when the couple went their separate ways.
“It hurt me to file for divorce, but I had to see it through. I let him know you’re going to be my husband and you’re not going to be somebody else’s anything, but if you plan to be somebody else’s anything, then we can’t be together,” Nene confessed in an interview at the time of the split. Then when they got back together she admitted, “Gregg needed to feel what it was like without me. I wanted to let him see if the grass was really greener on the other side. He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there.”
Damian also filled us in on how their relationship is really doing now. “They’re very much in love,” Damian said. “He’s her rock and she makes it known to us.”
“When they rekindled their marriage, between that and us on the show we needed to air out our differences. It was therapeutic for me and my family for us to move forward,” Damian finished.
Gregg must feel so guilty about cheating and loosing Nene when she was on her way to the top; he seems so passive and she definitely wears the pants in the relationship. Nene can NOT be happy that her step son keeps talking to the media about her family, especially to Radaronline. I’m happy to hear Nene and Gregg really are doing well and it’s not some facade for the show, we have way to many Bravo couples doing that already!
Thoughts on what Damian had to say? Are you surprised Nene and Gregg’s love isn’t just for TV? Do you like them together as a couple? Are you happy Nene is back on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
